My sister, wife and I hosted a bit of a family reunion here in early November. With nine of us, we selected The Cheesecake Factory for the convenience of off-street parking, a menu which would have something for everyone and enough space to accommodate us with some privacy. The Cheesecake Factory met or exceeded our expectations handily. Everyone was able... More

I'm usually not into cheesecakes, but their Oreo Cheesecake (with a side of whip cream) is to die for! I always get one slice to go so I can't comment on the rest of their food menu (plus it's too dark in there on my opinion). Only down side: the price! One single slice is $8.50 (probably better that way... More

I love Cheescake Factories, I've been to half a dozen all over the US. Unfortunately on this occasion our food was cold which spoilt what would have been a good meal. Shame.

My wife and I met my brother and his extended family at the Cambridge Galleria. We decided to have lunch at the Cheesecake Factory. Nice that they slimmed down the menu - used to be a tome. Food was fine as was the service. Good place for a quick bite.

The food did not disappoint - typical cheesecake. Good portion sizes, satisfied with taste . Deserts always enjoyable. The service however was so abysmally slow. We were there late afternoon on a Sunday at 4:30 on 10/26. It took almost 40 minutes to get food. At the end of the meal after not seeing waitress for 10 minutes, we finally... More
