Busy place; a bit noisy; works for families and everyone. Large portioned meals. Always can count on decent food.

On our last trip to Cheesecake Factory we decided to try a sampling of their many appetizers as our meal. We ordered 4 different appetizers (all of them delicious) and the three of us got a chance to taste each one to see if we would order again or not. Not only was it delicious but it was a fun...

As it happens, I went to this restaurant yesterday and today for lunch with different companions. Yesterday, I had the small plate and sparkling water. Today, I had the antioxidant salad and a glass of Moscato with water on the side. Both times, the wait staff were accommodating about seating. We wanted a booth in the main room. The food... More

It has been several years since we ate at a Cheesecake Factory, but special occasions often call for special places and we know it is always going to be good. I had the Chicken BoulonIse, recommended by our waitress. Service was prompt and the wait was minimal. All of the orders were hot, in large portions and were absolutely superbly... More

I hadn't eaten at the Cheesecake Factory for years, and the food has improved in the interim. Great selection, excellent service, beautiful new locations, and as always CheeseCake that will send you into Outer Space. I wouldn't be suprised if they have UFO landing pads on the roof so extraterrestials can get cheesecake to go.

The Cheesecake Factory has a huge selection of deserts. The portions are really enough for two people so we'll go there sometimes and split a desert. After a movie is the best time to go, and there's a movie theater practically next door.

Huge menu and it seems that they do it all right. Huge drinks--great warm bread basket and soft butter to start. From sticky Salmon on rice to Salads to Chicken Fingers--a huge order and maybe the best you'll ever eat--they hit the mark or exceed it. The cheesecake is amazing--but the last reason to visit! There is a reason that... More

My wife and I have dined here many times and have never had a bad experience. The quality control of their dishes has always been spot on. The service is beyond approach as well. A lot of "Fine Dining" establishments could take a serious note from this business model. Tip: This time of year, if you want to avoid a... More
