“Yummy....Portions are Huge”
Reviewed August 6, 2014 via mobile

When you come here come hungry. Their small portions can feed 2 people. The food is great very flavorful and portions are huge, we had to ask for to go boxes. But of course there is always room for dessert. You can't come to Cheesecake Factory and not order dessert. All in all this place is great for lunch and dinner. The servers are great as well. Your greater with a sincere small and Aloha. Taken to your table by great hostesses. Servers are great and ask them about what they recommend on the menu if your having a hard time choosing they won't lead you astray. Thumbs up.

“Kind of like when you drop your iPhone and it smashes, it's never again as nice to use”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

So I dined here tonight with my family, In a nutshell, disappointing.

Good points:
Some food was good. Especially the buffalo blast appetizers. The waitress was helpful with the ordering and recommending dishes. The restaurant has great ambience and is not cramped.

The bad:
Some food arrived cold. Mainly the service let this visit down, we were rushed through the entire meal by the waitress. And by no means were we slow eaters. Main course arrived just 3-4 mins after appetisers. The waitress was trying to clear the plates of 3 of us, whilst the other 3 were still eating. She then cleared all plates apart from one as he was still eating! This is extremely rude. dessert menus then handed out whilst one member of party still eating! Very poor. When the bill arrived the waitress remarked (unprompted) that information on tipping was on the insert in the menus me that they do things "a little differently" in the US. I can work out the amount I would like to tip, and decided for myself if I would like to read the discretionary tippin information, poor.

This was a family me ends birthday and we would have like to have taken more time to enjoy the evening.

“It's ok”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Not sure if we were disappointed because we had to wait so long to be seated (1hr & 50mins) that it spoiled our perception but the food was ok, very large portions that were tasty but not somewhere that I would rush back to.

“Try the Cheese cake”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Ate at the Cheese Cake Factory on a Sunday evening. The secret is to have dinner around 5:00 pm. when it will start to get busier around 6;00 pm. We still had to wait around 15-20 minutes. They did offer us outside seating, but we wanted to sit inside the air conditioned seating area, due to the humidity and hot weather. The meal portions are generous. I had the hamburger with fries and usually order the club sandwich wtih fries and my wife has a large salad.
