I took my family to celebrate a birthday on April 23, 2011. Although previous visits have been satisfactory (hence our return), I was completerly disappointed this last time....enough so to take out the time to write a review. I ordered the shrimp scampi with steak diane platter for dinner at $19.99. When the waitress brought my dish, there were THREE tiny beef medallions mixed with mushrooms and THREE pieces of medium sized shrimp, in the center was approximately one cup of broccoli. Being a previous restaurant owner and knowing food costs, this could not have cost them more than $3 to prepare (that may even be a generous estimation). Two of my kids got the 4 cheese pasta dish @ 13.95 which I felt was overpriced as well in accordance with the amount served. My wife got the mahi mahi special which consisted of no more than 4 oz of fish, was also 19.95 and had about one and 1/2 cups of vegetables to fill in the plate. My son is the only one who got his money's worth....a 10.95 spicy buffalo chicken sandwich with fries...and he could not even finish all of the fries. My wife and I left hungry, and we paid $115 including tip for this meal. I absolutely do not mind spending generously on a meal, and I realize that times are tough, but there was certainly no proper exchange here. Normal food costs for a restaurant hover around 32%...I felt that the portions we paid for at the Cheesecake Factory averaged no more than 10%. What gives here CF?????? :-(

I had heard many great things about The Cheesecake Factory, but I was LESS than impressed when I ate there. I went with my Grandmother, who had eaten there before, and she said it was great. I got a burger that was tasteless and disgusting. The service was terrible. I don't think I ever even got ONE drink refill! It was very disappointing. I didn't get to try the cheesecake, but would probably recommend that be the only thing people buy from this place.

Our last visit to this restaurant was extremely disappointing. The food was awful and from the looks of things we were not the only people complaining. We had eaten there several times before and always loved it. We will never eat at this restaurant again, which is very disappointing as it was one of my favorites! It's just too expensive to risk it again...

Oh man this place has so many dishes to choose from, and I'm not even talking about the dessert menu!!!! The appetizers are great, and are huge enough to be an entree (my favorite are the potstickers!) The salads are huge, as are all the other entrees. Lots of choices make it a great place to go with a big variety of people in your family/group - there's something to please everyone! The best dessert menu around too!!!! It can get crowded, so avoid 'peak' times. We usually eat early (3-4pm) and miss the crowds entirely.

The Cheesecake Factory has a menu broad enough to have something for everyone. I have had salads, sandwiches, and appetizers, and all were equally delicious. Of course, the cheesecake is a must, but it's hard to choose just one flavor!

The Cheescake Factory is a great restaurant. They have a wide variety of meals, and they are all great. They also have a large dessert menu, including lots of cheesecake selections. I don't like cheesecake, so I've never had it, but they have other choices that are tasty.

Many times, restaurants specialize in a few dishes. The Cheesecake factory has everything you can ever imagine-from grill style to asian style cooking. They have it all! Not only do they have it all, but they cook it all so well!
