“Many more choices added recently”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We decided to give this another try after a long time and was pleasantly surprised.
When we went a few years ago, the choice was very very limited for vegetarians.
This time though, there was no dearth of menu items.
Salads, pasta, desserts, sandwiches.. every type of food had a vegetarian option.

My pregnant wife and 4 year old daughter loved the food too.

It does get crowded on weekends because it is in the very popular outdoor part of the South point mall.

“YUM”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Food was delicious, wide variety of choices, and staff were very friendly and helpful. Happy hour offered $5 appetizers with several selections. Had enough left over to make a good lunch the next day.

“factory is right”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Located in the Southpoint mall this is your generic Cheesecake Factory. Parking is not great since the restaurant is at the same end of the mall as a multiplex theater. Waits for tables are long. Food is standard Cheesecakes Factory. There are better restaurant choices 100 feet away in the same mall.

“Overpriced fast food with glutenous portions.”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

If you like being crammed into tiny uncomfortable seating and being offered overpriced fast-food with portions guaranteed to add inches to your waist, this is the place for you.
