Hoping it was just this one time. – My husband and I enjoy going here with our grandchildren and recently the service has been a bit lacking. I always enjoy the food but when the service is very down hill, it is hard to enjoy the meal. I hope it was just an few off nights we experienced recently.
Decadent cheesecakes and classic American cuisine makes this a popular chain. – In Short
Faux-rustic finishes and colorful light fixtures abound at this almost always crowded chain. The thick-as-a-book menu features Americanized versions of worldly cuisines--Mexican, Vietnamese, Italian, Thai--but succeeds best with American classics. Burgers are a good choice, especially the ""Roadside Sliders,"" mini burgers served as appetizers. The myriad cheesecakes are over-the-top in concept and decadence. You'll leave full, with leftovers.
Might change your name, guys. – I've been to Cheesecake Factory a few times. The food's always been good, but nothing special (it's still puzzling to me why they think they need to cover every genre of food out there) and the service is okay. It's what I would expect from this kind of chain. No better or worse than their chain competition.
The part where they fail. Fail horribly. Terribly. And why I have no idea where they got their name from. The cheesecake is terrible. And by terrible, I mean you might as well mix up that nasty jell-o cheesecake mix. Look, I'm not a baker and I bake a better cheesecake. Even COSTCO's bakery destroys theirs. There's a reason they have 50 types of cheesecake. They hope you pick a piece that's flavored beyond recognition....which isn't hard. I know why the wait staff encouraged me not to get the regular cheesecake now. I would have done the same thing. I'm a cheesecake nut, don't get me wrong. It's my favorite desert. It's just a shame that people think that THIS is what cheesecake is. I think there's more sugar in their cheesecake than there is actually cream cheese and the texture is just all off. Go to one of our towns fine bakeries and see what you've been missing!
One word......GODIVA – I love sweets, I have a huge sweet tooth and nothing does it for me like the Cheesecake Factory's Godiva cheescake. Its about 7.25 a slice and that does sound a little steep but definitely take my word for it when I say its worth every penny.
Definitely Not A "Cheap Eat" Place – I've been to The Cheesecake Factory twice, once with my fiancee´ and another time with a group of 3 other people. The first time, we only had dessert and the bill was $20. I'm not sure about you, but this seems a bit steep for dessert. When I went there the second time, we waited almost 30 minutes to be seated at 3 in the afternoon. While the ambience of the restaurant is nice and the staff is polite, the food is average and not worth the high price.
IS this a joke? – I made an account JUST so i could comment on this!....are you kidding me, why is this even in the "cheap eats"....and its not even that good!
CHEAP? ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!!!!!!! – How much did Cheesecake Factory pay for this add. I find that McDonald's Bistro has better food, is a much better value and you don't have tpo wait 45 minutes for great cheesecake.
Cheap tasting – First of all, this place is not cheap. Either the listing is a joke or the owner's voted their restaurant in. Secondly, this place blows! The first and only time I went there was on my birthday. We had to wait 1 ½ hours to get seated. (The only reason why I waited that long is because we were meeting people and I heard good things about the place.) When we finally got to order, I asked if the Fettuccini Alfredo was Vegetarian. The waiter said yes. When my food arrived, it had bacon on it (which was not listed on the menu). I had my order removed from the bill, and the waiter got snotty with me because I didn't want to order something else from their incompetent chiefs. Avoid this place at all costs! Totally not worth it and totally not cheap!
For Dessert Only – The desserts really are very good (although it doesn't seem like anything is made on site) but the food is horrible, overpriced bland junk. The decor is as cheesy as has ever been invented. Unless you are having dessert only, stay away and have a good dinner someplace else.
the cheesecake factory – i have been there a few times with friends and company dinners and truly each time the food was to salty or cold and i found that the serving size is smalll for the price that we are paying the only thing that i liked was the desserts but they were also expensive.
