Good cheesecake and friendly service. Portion is quite big and we had a hard time choose between all the options.

We walked on planning to wait for our dinner and we were told an hour. No big deal we did some stuff close by and came back to a table being ready. Perfect! Except for the table that they sat us at, it is the large booth right at the Michigan ave entrance. So all the people that came in... More

Stopped in here late on a Saturday night (10;00 p.m.) with the woman after seeing a play at the Broadway Playhouse. There was still a wait, however, we found a table at the bar. Ordered the Louisiana Chicken, our staple, and it was delicious. The restaurant was clean and the help was on top of things. Great location. We will... More

As a Canadian, we don't have Cheesecake Factories up here. So when I finally came here, the experience was awesome. I had this fried chicken sandwich that was unreal. The portion was huge, and it was delicious. The menu is quite huge too making it hard to choose. The place was packed and the service was a liiiittle slow, but... More

Of course the Cheesecake Factory was yummy, but what made it great was we were able to sit in the bar area (at a table) without waiting the 90 minutes for a regular table. Our waitress was great. Also, my friend reeeeally enjoyed her margarita. My pizza was kind of floppy, that's the only negative I have!

Beautiful location in downtown Chicago... parking is a kind of ridiculous tho. That I will definitely say. I spent 60 bucks on it alone.... however the restaurant itself is delicious. Service is always good. The menu can be a bit overwhelming! But anything you choose is delicious!

Had a wonderful garlic lemon chicken. Delicious. And the Salted caramel cheesecake was divine. But two drinks added $30 to my bill!! Seemed like a lot. Great service

We have visited several Cheesecake Factory locations. This location is convenient enough while staying in downtown Chicago. Get there before 5:00 for dinner so the wait isn't so bad. The food is always good, and the portions are fairly large. My boyfriend had the bang bang chicken and shrimp and it was delicious! I had the Chinese chicken salad and... More

We have been to The Cheesecake Factory before and to this locations and have had a good time. This last visit completely missed the mark in service. We went for a early dinner and to grab some dessert for later. It was my mom, 8 month old and myself. Upon walking in there was 3 parties before us and it... More

We have visited a couple of other cheesecake factories and this one is up there with the best of them. Great location, lovely restaurant and amazing service. I had the burger and my wife ate the enchiladas, then we attempted a cheesecake and a chocolate cake.... We were defeated..... food was so good Highly recommended

Thank MrMojoRisin_10

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
