The cheesecake is all it's cracked up to be! The food is not. It's twice the price and not as good as many other eateries. I give the cheesecake 5 stars and the food 1 star. the price certainly 1 star. Our waiter was exceptional and he would earn more than 5 stars.

You can't pass up a slice of cheesecake! The wait can be long so time your visit wisely. Menu is extensive and all of our selections were great. Finish it off with a slice of cheesecake!

Stopped in for a later dinner at the Cheese Cake Factory. Had the meatloaf and it was great, the service was outstanding as well. I've eaten at several Cheese cake Factory. The 280 Factory in Birmingham has the best service.

Whenever we visit in whatever city we are in the food is always superb. There is always a wait at any one we visit but always well worth is. We don't have one in our home state but we always look for one when we travel. Our server Nathan was great at accommodating all of our group requests!!!

I had the Ahi Tuna Appetizer and a Flatbread appetizer to save calories. We both ate from the Skinnylicious Menu. Both very tasty. Watch the calories on the menu especially the cheesecake. Service good; however, we ate early for dinner and when I asked about a cocktail special for Happy Hour, the server said it did not apply unless I... More

Nice atmosphere however always seems to be busy and overwhelmed. The food comes out in a decent amount of time. I tend to believe the menu is to vast. But overall the food is good. Lighting could be better always dark. Weight staff is always great at Cheesecake Factory.

Awesome food but the wait was extreme. Over 90 minutes. If the friends I was with hadn't been the drivers, and that we had driven from Fort Payne just to eat there, I would have went somewhere else. The food is good, but not that good.

I was so looking forward to eating here as I can only eat at Cheesecake factory when traveling. I ordered the Shrimp Bistro and it was so greasy I could not eat it all and I was sick all night with indigestion. I guess they have lost their enamor for me now. Cheesecake was delicious the bite I tasted. So... More
