Had about a 30 min wait on a Friday night which was expected. Very popular location at Southgate Mall with outdoor seating if you prefer that as well. We did go back here the next day for lunch as well because the menu is so expansive and during the day we chose to sit outside to enjoy the beautiful weather.... More

Got to Cheesecake Factory at 2:45 on a Saturday to avoid a long wait. Unfortunately we are told there are no reservations on Saturdays and that we should expect about an hour wait. We had a party of twelve to celebrate a family birthday party, so I guess that is a big problem for this restaurant. Anyway, it ultimately took... More

We went into the Cheesecake Factory in the mid afternoon for lunch. The food was very good. Service was great. Waitress was very attentive.

After an 1 hour and 15 minute wait (first available), we were seated outside on a Saturday evening which was fine despite the cool temperatures, because the outside heaters were on and provided adequate warmth for our party of 5. The service started out okay but after eating our entrees (no appetizers ordered), it slowed considerably when we attempted to... More

This is our favorite for special occasions. The food and service are all you'd expect from Cheesecake Factory. I like to go on a weekend for a late lunch. Make sure to plan plenty of wait time during dinner hour. It's worth it though.

Our recent visit to The Cheesecake Factory in Durham propelled this chain from our all-time favorite to a place I seriously doubt we'll ever frequent again. Despite the relatively mild conditions outside, the interior of the restaurant was bone-chillingly cold, as was, the demeanor of the staff and the food. We were seated at a tiny table that wasn't big... More

Reached late during last weekend and waited around 15 minutes to be seated. Surprised to see the warm welcome and hospitality of the staff with smiling face. We had Salad, Tomato Basil Pasta, The Everything Pizza and Chocolate Tower Truffle Cake. All the dishes were more than expectations. There is good choice of beers and other alcohol too. It was...

There is a reason that there are two of these within 25 miles of one another. As always it was busy, busy, busy. My wait time was 15 minutes so I expected 30. I was seated in about 25 minutes and our server came right over and took our drink orders. I tried the fried macaroni and cheese which was... More

I was there and I can say that if you are hungry that is the place you can go and you will definitely calm your stomach! The portions are big, and the food has a really good taste, the customer service is really good, but the place is always crowded so you have to make sure to make a reservation... More

I was surprised when we went here. They have a fairly varied menu to choose from, and every thing I've tried was good. Of course, cheesecake is the best reason to go there because they have quite a selection to choose from, but I would recommend going for dinner and taking home some of their cheesecake. Also, there's a movie... More
