Overall not a bad experience. Seating is very close, so you get a cramped feeling. The menu is extensive so you are sure to find something you would like(other than cheesecake). Yes it is crowded at times but most popular eateries are.

Our waitress was very slow about taking our order and every time we tried to stop her, it was like she ignored us. They need to slow down and just communicate with customers. Not a fan! Bad service can ruin a meal.

We enjoy coming here for Sunday brunch after early church. We usually sit on their back patio that overlooks the drive in to the Summit from 459. It provides shade with tall shrubs and umbrellas. We do not recommend this place for dinner or lunch-...More

I have tried a good portion of the menu, and all of the items have been amazing. Great place for lunch, half sandwich and soup is filling, delicious and cheap. Getting dessert is a must, even if you are full. Get it to go. I...More

Yes. There is a "to go" area to the right when you enter The Cheesecake Factory. You can go there to order any of the cheesecakes.
