Not the best food IMO. The menu is ridiculously big and just ok. They don't do anything that great or that bad but just bland.

Even though it was prime time on a Saturday. The wait was only an hour. Easy time to kill with all the shops around. The Factory Nachos were unbelievable, Shrimp and Steak had incredible seasonings, and the best Strawberry Cheesecake. Great atmosphere for hanging out and eating until you can't hold anymore...!

They always have generous portions and it's pretty tasty food. I guess the server was having an off day. He handed each of us our forks, knives and napkins separately instead of the rolled set. And he was very slow at understanding and delivering our food order.

The visit was wonderful. My husband and I enjoyed the food and service. Some of the best pasta I've ever had and his steak was outstanding.

I came here with another and adult and 2 children. It was a birthday celebration for one of the children. We were staying at Hampton Inn just across 280. When we first arrived we were told a 30 min wait that turned into an hour. I kind of expected that given it was the holiday season. Well, we found out... More

Great food selection in addition to awesome cheese cakes!!! I prefer to eat on the patio when weather permits. Also, they have excellent drinks.

This was our first visit to a cheesecake factory restaurant as we are from the UK. The service was good as was the food. The portions were very large. We were able to take some of the food home with us.

OMG. This food is to die for. It is quite pricy but well worth it. Not to mention the cheesecake is perfect. I love the combination dinner with a choice of 2 of the following: Steak Diane, Chicken Maduro, Shrimp Scampi, and Parmesan Crusted Salmon........ All of which are heavenly.

I always enjoy good food and healthy portions. I had the white chicken chilli bowl...was great! Nice atmosphere, but lights were extra dimmed that night as I could hardly see the words on the menu, lol. I've yet to be disappointed at this restaurant.

Thank Darron G
