Looking to blow your diet, and your budget? Go to the cheesecake factory! Everything here tastes great, especially the cheesecakes, but I think there are way better nice restaurants in the area where you get a more unique experience for the money. Everything on the menu is very high in calories. It'd be easy to eat 3000-5000 for dinner here.

Let me tell you every Cheese Cake Factory we have been, are very consistent with the food. Such a big menu. You will definitely find something you may like. I always try to order different entries,and I am always very satisfied with my selections. It's definitely a great place to have dinner.

Everything we ordered was one delicious dish after another. If there's a 10-star rating, I'll give them one. Had dinner yesterday with family and the service and food were above expectations.Thank you for the staff and especially the chef (who made his rounds to ask about the food) for one of the most delightful evenings of my vacation❤️

Our food and drinks were delicious. Our waitress was amazing. We started out with the Eggroll Sampler (I apologize, the family dug in before I could take the pic). It was amazing. I also had a Bloody Mary, my husband ordered a beer, and my son ordered a Strawberry lemonade. The Herb Salmon with Potatoes and Spinach (substituted for Asparagus) was amazing. We also had the Bacon Cheeseburger. Husband and son thoroughly enjoyed. He said the bacon was auspiciously baked to perfection. We also ordered the Mango Keylime Cheesecake and the Strawberry Cheesecake. I can't wait to return to try something else on the menu.

We haven't been here in years and only twice at that. Back then we found the food to be just so-so and expensive. Fast forward to tonight and it was a completely different experience. Starting with our server, Jo, who was friendly, answered our questions, and attentive throughout. From start to finish, 5 stars for Jo! The complimentary bread was warm, really good, and enough to bring home. My spouse had the steak Diane in a nice mushroom sauce, which she really enjoyed. It came with a very generous amount of mashed potatoes, much of which will be leftovers. I ordered the Thai coconut lime chicken, which was fabulous. It seriously exceeded my expectations! It's chicken, snow peas, shiitike mushrooms, onions and garlic in a Thai coconut curry sauce with cashews and pineapple served with white or brown rice. With all these ingredients it was just an explosion of so many flavors and I loved every bite! There was so much I brought more than half home. We topped off dinner with a Hershey chocolate bar cheesecake. It's Hershey cheesecake between two slices of chocolate cake topped with chocolate frosting and chocolate chips on the edge. There's was also a huge dollop of the best whipped cream I've ever tasted. It's was all so rich and we brought most of it home too! The menu is so huge! Needless to say, we'll be returning.

Check out the size of that Oreo!! Service was the best we've had anywhere in a while. Ask for T! Tiara 👑 was personable, prompt, and positively made our night. We'll be back to sit in her section again. AND they had more than one vegan accommodating dish, so that's always a plus. (TCF, you should have new hires shadow T, for real. We've owned restaurants, it's hard to impress our Dad, and he thought she was great!)

Didn’t have ice cream for a while. But today i had two big balls: one is pistachio ice-cream, the other is sea-salt chocolate ice cream. And bf tried two other flavors. Deeeeelicious. Bought chacolate truffle too. They do have many varieties and the portion is quite big. Very sweet. I did not finish.

Just stopped by for 2 slices of cheesecake. Got 1 pineapple upside down cheesecake and 1 red velvet cheesecake. Both were great. Service at the cheesecake counter was great. All of the workers told us different cakes were the #1 best seller. 😆

I love Cheesecake Factory we choose here when we don’t have idea what eat bc there are a lot of options. This time we ordered the chicken Parmesan “pizza style” and the Famous factory meatloaf. Our waiter was super kind and we offer fries bc the bread wasn’t ready. I don’t like the AC is too cold.

Had a fabulous early lunch here today - sat at the bar and got spectacular service from Ryan. The club sandwich was one of the best I’ve ever had and I’m a connoisseur - the turkey was thin cut and flavorful, they salted the tomatoes, the bacon was crisp, and they didn’t over lettuce. Loved the cocktails too.

Went to this Cheesecake Factory location for dinner. So much went wrong…Based on all of our previous meals there, we really expected a good meal, service, etc., but that did not happen. Where to start? None of the tables in our section had napkins. We asked for them, but saw other patrons getting up and getting their own. They ran out of bread, and we finally got it after the appetizer. There’s the good thing…the calamari was very good! While waiting for the entrees, a trip to the bathroom was, in a word, traumatizing. The level of filth was astounding. It really didn’t help the ambiance or the appetite. It took over an HOUR for the entrees to come and they were practically refrigerator cold. Not only that the tiny, tiny NY Strip steak that was ordered medium was well, well, well done. No steak knife even after I asked for one. No salad dressing for the salad. The salad was paltry. Let’s leave it at that. And the ‘medium rare’ tuna was ice box cold. The server was conscientious, but spent most of the time apologizing for the various issues. We asked for to-go boxes because the food was just not edible. The plan is to warm it up at home to rescue our $129+ meal. We’re also taking home the Godiva Cheesecake and Linda’s triple fudge cake. And we’re holding out hope that the desserts will rescue our anniversary celebration!
