Cheesecake Factory has so many options, it’s insane! We got the avocado egg rolls as a starter and when I tell you we finished the plate in like a minute, it was so good! I got the spicy rigatoni vodka and my friend got the fettuccine Alfredo, which were both yummy. Lastly, we got the strawberry cheesecake and white chocolate raspberry truffle cheesecake. These were so incredibly delicious, even though we were so full from the entire meal, we finished our plates clean. Would definitely go back just for the cheesecake!!

Fantastic experience. Delicious cheesecake as always. Get the black bean burger with their wheat bread, makes for a great combo. Minimal wait time and very attentive service. Also provided olive oil with the butter for the bread.

Service, food and cheesecake are always wonderful here. The expansive menu means there is definitely something for everyone. Portions are huge - so are the calories! There is a "skinny" menu, many items being appetizers or smaller plates from the big menu. Parking near the entrance is harder during peak hours, although there is valet if you like that (weekend only? I'm unsure). Wait times increase as well, particularly on the weekend. My only complaint would be their unrecyclable takeout containers. If we are bringing home multiple items (leftovers, lots of cheesecake slices to go) they all get packaged individually. We inquired about combining the cheesecake slices but there didn't seem to be an alternative. We were told the restaurant will have new, more environmental-friendly containers soon. I sure hope so! (2 years later...still waiting)

Always enjoy going to cheesec cake factory!! Their cheese cake is absolutely delicious, but never have room after eating a meal. I recommend going for lunch time around 11:30, no wait. There is always a long wait around 5:00pm.

As always, the Cheesecake Factory never disappoints. The staff was friendly here. The restaurant was beautiful inside and it has a great vibe about it. I'm definitely coming back. I wish a had a photo of the cheesecake but I didn't think about it until after I ate it. But it was a Snickers cheesecake. As you were.

My son loves their cheesecake. So if we are ever in the area, he has to get some to take home for later. It was very busy on this occasion. But he was waited on quickly. There is a separate area just to order and get your cheesecake. This is also the counter to pick up take out orders. I even got a cup of water. It was a hot day. Staff is friendly and nice. It is a clean environment to eat at. It is a little pricey, so I figure yeah it’s a few dollars more but it’s not a place you eat at every day. So enjoy yourself and the food. The atmosphere is great.

We are here for a department outing and had a wonderful time. Staff was extremely accommodating, above and beyond so, and kind towards our needs as more and more people were added to our party and we needed a bigger and bigger table. All of the wait staff was kind and knowledgeable and gave great recommendations. I got the balsamic chicken from the skinny menu with a side of angel hair pasta and it was divine! Only giving 4 stars instead of 5 because we had to wait so long for our food, which has always been my experience at any Cheesecake location. Thanks for a lovely time! Oh and please get rid of plastic straws! The turtles will thank you!

The variety of cheesecakes never disappoints! The banana cream cheesecake is light and very satisfying. It does not seem like you are indulging at all! Even though the wait to be seated is sometimes long, it is definitely worth the wait. I have been to this location several times and each time I have tried a different meal. The salmon was delicious and mildly seasoned which is perfect for me. The sliders were freshly cooked and nothing like that of any of the local fast-food restaurants. The chicken alfredo was creamy and the chicken was soft and definitely not dried out or overcooked. The pizza was a treat for an appetizer as was the pot stickers, a bit heavily oiled, but otherwise a nice treat. A definite must stop if you have some time to sit and enjoy a delicious relaxing meal with family or friends. If you want a quick in and out meal, then you may want to bypass this location or opt- out for take-out.

This review is long overdue. From the moment arriving to a very busy “open for seating” after the Pandemic, Amira made it awesome. Our server was also outstanding. Drinks were cold. Food was yummy and hot! Most of all the CHEESECAKE! We brought some home for later, because the portions are huge in anything you choose! This is a really excellent Cheesecake Factory! Thanks for that. Especially, during one of the craziest busiest, weekends in two years. Just outstanding from start to finish. Go here. You won’t regret it.

The dine in was nice, the food was tasty. The staff were friendly, but the downside was the wait time was around 40 mins. We did opt in for take out a couple of times, there was no consistency in taste for some dishes. It's always been a nice experience when dining in.

Great bread. 👍 I love the bread! Superb. Definitely try their bread. 👍 The staff is full of cheers and very cheery. Big smiles. I really like how it tastes when I eat the bread. Minus one star for price of pieces of bread because it should cost money for the bread. 👍 They should call it "The Bread Factory". 👍
