Not my first time at a Cheesecake Factory but definitely the best!! I ordered the Buffalo Blasts thinking the portion would be smaller since it was an appetizer - I was WRONG!! Couldn't eat them all and took half of them home with me. Unfortunately they got rid of the Wild Blueberry White Chocolate and Pineapple Upside Down Cake Cheesecakes,... More

My family had a nice dinner at this cheesecake factory restaurant in January 2017 while we traveled Birmingham area. I dined in many cheesecake factory locations but I got impressed with this location. Our server was well trained and had enough knowledge of their menu. The restaurant is not huge, so it is well kept in every part. Nice management.... More

We had a great meal along with some of the best cheesecake around. The service was good. The waitress made sure we were always taken care of. I enjoyed having a delicious dinner at the restaurant, then topping it off with coffee and a large slice of cheesecake.

Was so happy to get the same table and the same waiter we had last August when my college student daughter and I visited last. Louis is very attentive, and when asked to make a menu suggestion, he never fails to come through. Both visits were my daughters and my last dinner together, as I head to the airport to... More

My husband and I had lunch this weekend st The Cheesecake Factory. We arrived right at 11:00 and we did not have to wait. My only complaint would be how close everyone has to sit to other parties if you do not get lucky enough to have a booth. It's impossible to have an actual conversation without everyone else hearing.... More

went on a Friday night and it was as usual very crowded. you walk in and think there's no way we are going to get seated quickly. yet that's exactly what happened. Our party of six was seated after a short wait. Our server was excellent, fun and helpful. The appetizers were delicious, cocktails innovative and entrees satisfying. This wasn't... More

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...!

Thank Timothy J
