We love coming here when we're in the Albany area. Food is always excellent! I order the spaghetti and meatballs usually. The cheese cake is by far the best part though. Make sure you save room for desert!

Stopped while shopping for a snack. Sadly disappointed, what with having cheesecake in their name!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Same old offerings. Basically, I'd suggest you look elsewhere for a quick bite.

The Cheesecake Factory has tons of choices of excellent food. I especially like the shrimp over pasta but, really, you cannot go wrong. Service is generally fast and always friendly. Not cheap, but very predictable high quality.

I don't think they have a party room but the restaurant could hold that many. If I were planning a work party I would use either BucaDebeppa or the Italian American club restarant- Treviso. Both have party rooms and you can... More
