“Very busy restaurant, but food is worth the wait to get in!”
Reviewed August 24, 2014

We waited almost an hour and a half to get a table here, but the food was worth the crazy long wait! The portions are enormous, and once you're seated your food isn't long being prepared! They give you a buzzer and you can walk around and shop while you wait so we didn't mind. The restaurant was huge and well decorated, and the staff were great. The food was well priced too, and oh the cheesecake... amazing! Make sure you save room for dessert because you don't want to miss out!!

“Value for money, awesome food!”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

Food and service is awesome. I tried the new lemon meringue cheesecake which was tantalizing to my taste buds! Only negative is that you can't book and have to wait to be seated. My tip: get there early or between main service times...but well worth the wait!

“Huge Servings”
Reviewed August 22, 2014

We ate there 3 times in our stay and had great service the first and second time but very bad service on the third as we never saw the waiter at all once she took our order and as our cheese cake didn't;t turn up we had to ask another waiter to fine her so we could get our bill. She gave us our cheese cake to take away free and needless she wasn't tipped and it put us off returning.
The food is very good but far to bigger serve so always share when you go there.

“Officially the Busiest Cheescake Factory”
Reviewed August 22, 2014

The night we went there was a queue trailing out the door. Amazingly you had to put your name down for at least an hours wait to just get a buzzer, and then it was in excess of another hour's wait once you had a buzzer in your hot little hand.

We chose not to wait two hours but came back on a quieter night and got talking to our waiter who confirmed that it was officially the busiest Cheescake Factory the group owned. With in excess of 700 seats, that get turned over a minimum of 4 to 5 times a day, we estimated that Honolulu itself must be turning over in excess of a 100 million a year.

There is no doubting that the menu offers something for everyone and the sizes are huge. Service is sensational, warm and personalised even in this manic environment and it's great value for money.

There is no question this formula works and that they are doing something very, very right.

Not sure if its is worth a two hour wait but thousands of others thought it was.

“Delicious..!”
Reviewed August 22, 2014

Excellent restaurant. It is HUGE so we thought we'd have to wait but no worries there at all. Staff were attentive and friendly and the food was DELICIOUS and delivered promptly. Great wine list too. We'll definitely go the next time we're in Hawaii.
