“HUGE menu”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Cheesecake Factory is always good. I have never gotten anything there that wasn't tasty. The long wait is not fun, so make sure you are not too hungry when you get there. The tamales corn cakes are to die for, as are the crab wontons! If you do not have room for cheesecake, get some to go. It is out of this world. My favorite is the macadamia and the key lime!

“Overrated”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

I don't get what all the fuss is about. The selection of cheesecake is amazing, but that's about it. The service isn't very good. The food is mediocre and overpriced. The place is always crowded, parking is a nightmare, and it's pretty noisy.

“Good food, ok service, and loud music.”
Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

To be fair, most restaurants are too loud and too dark. This was no exception.

The food was good (sausage and brocolini) and our server was very friendly and accomodating. He made my husband's Arnold Palmer with the same flair as an alcoholic cocktail, which was nice. The Cheesecake Factory is generally not a great value. Some items are overpriced, maybe to be able to maintain a dizzyingly large and varied menu?

Overall a good experience.

“Delicious food, amazing cheesecake.”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

This is a rare splurge for us as the crowds can be overwhelming, and it's a bit pricey. Salads are delicious, sandwiches are good, lettuce wraps and avacado egg rolls are so yummy! The cheesecake is amazing in any flavor! I like the atmosphere of this place, which is the same here or in Illinois. The architecture is nice with high ceilings and a more interesting table layout. It is almost impossible to leave without having/sharing the cheesecake....tough for the healthy/dieters.

“pasta alfredo is THE best dish there!”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Very big portions and a little pricey but is perfect for a lunch with the girls or a buisness dinner. I got the alfredo pasta with chicken and it was devine! Everything tasted very fresh and delicious. The portions are very very big so unless your starving, dont get two dishes
