There's nothing special about this Cheesecake Factory. The silverware was quite spotted with watermarks. My biscuit was so hard it could have been used as a weapon. I questioned why I bothered eating out. I really didn't enjoy my meal or my experience.

Food was great, but still kind of expensive overall. You're paying extra for the ornate ambience. Service was very good too.

The food had the prices of a high-end restaurant, but the quality was average. We had three adults and a child, no alcohol, and our bill was nearly $150. I would recommend that you just visit for the desserts.

I had never been to a Cheesecake Factory before, but had eaten cheesecakes made from there numerous times. This location was so Over-the-Top, that I actually understood why it cost me $65 for a sugar-free cheesecake! However, that was the first sugar-free cheesecake I'd eaten,...More
