The Cheesecake Factory is surely the place to go when craving a rich and delectable slice of the mouth-watering dessert, but this restaurant offers much more. Serving appetizers, lunch, dinner, late night dining, Sunday Brunch, and a full bar, the Factory is a great choice for a casual dining experience. Everyone will find something to their liking with over 200 menu selections of pizza, pasta, seafood, steaks, salads, sandwiches, burgers, and more. Be sure to save room for one of the 50 delicious cheesecakes and desserts. They also have a take out service.
We went to the Cheesecake Factory on a Saturday in May, expecting to be seated relatively quickly for a brief meal. Boy, were we ever wrong!
It took two hours to get a table. By this time, it was nine o'clock, and the two seven-year-olds in our party were exhausted, as it was past ten at home, and past their bedtime. One of the girls was particularly picky with what she ate and ordered cheese fries with no bacon. They arrived with bacon and extra barbeque sauce, clearly not what we had requested, not to mention they were lukewarm. The other girl received lukewarm chicken fingers. The atmosphere was loud and too bright, and we didn't feel comfortable.
The cheesecake is good, but I'd recommend that if you must dine at the Cheesecake Factory, do it at a slow time--and outside.
always the sunday destination before we leave town.

This is usually our last stop before we head home out of town. The sunday ritual. For as busy as it gets, the wait is not too bad. Had great service every time we went. Waiters and waitresses are very friendly and make you feel welcome. You definetely get plenty of food for the dollars you spend. So much food, that sometimes 2 of us will share a meal. I highly recommend The Cheesecake Factory for everyone of all ages.
I've been to Cincinnati, Ohio at the Cheesecake Fac. in Kenwood, it was a cool location. The food was good, it was a really big plate, I couldn't even take it to an end-but they will pack it for you, if you wanna take it home. It was not the cheapest place to go fot dining, but it really is worth it's price!
The only bummer is: We had to wait like 1 1/2 hours till we got a table-therefor they got a special beeper that will light up if you can go to your table. You can't reserve a table by phone!!!
The service was good, very polite and funny!
There are like 50 different cheese cakes-everyone as good as the next!
THE place to go for dining!
We, my wife and my 3 years old daughter, went to the Skokie location because we found it on line as a kid friendly restaurant. Well, there is nothing friendly in this regard. No kids menu, my daughter likes to see what it looks like before ordering. She wanted a cheese pizza which we ordered. There was nothing special about the pizza and it was not a kid's size. She likes things that are designed for kids because "it's just my size". No kid's packaged with a special dessert and no kid's treats of any sort. She likes the little chocolate mints that come with the check at some places.
I absolutely love the Cheesecake Factory. By far my favorite restaurant. Everything I've had their is delicious. Their food is of average price but outstanding taste. The portions are HUGE, though, and to this day have never finished everything on my plate. You MUST save room for dessert, though. They have tons of flavors of cheesecake. I recommend the Adam's Peanut Butter Cup Fudge Ripple. DELICIOUS!! The location at the John Hancock Center is also nice because it is centrally located near downtown and for those who like shopping, near Magnificent Mile.
