I always like the food at the cheesecake factory and this one was great too however the person I was with got a veggie burger that she said had no flavor. I had the lunch sized salmon and it was very tasty. The decor in this place was over the top. It reminded me of the kids Aladdin movie. The... More

You'd think that a Michigan Ave, Chicago address would mean that this would likely be THE BEST restaurant in a chain that is quite well-liked but in this instance, you'd be incorrect. The entrance is below street-level in some form of courtyard that is mostly unoccupied apart from a Starbucks but it is in the bottom of the well-known John... More

Visited the Cheesecake Factory on a Friday at 5:30, and had a 30 minute wait. However, they have Happy Hour between 5 and 6, so that worked out. As always, the portions were big ( I went with deep fried shrimp dinner) and service was somewhat quick. Dessert was awesome as well.

It's true what they say, the Americans do large portions! The cheesecakes are to die for. A must visit.

Great tasting food and large portions as always. We were given cold water and fresh bread while we read the menu and the atmosphere was good, busy but not crowded or too loud. Our food took a while to prepare but that was not a problem for us as we could sit back and enjoy the ambience from our table.... More

If you only go for dessert, you should. They also have an area to place orders to go. Grab a decadent slice of cheesecake to go!

Can always count on good food and something for everyone at Cheesecake Factory. We were told the wait would be 15 minutes ended up being 30. Our waitress was polite but offered slow service. After taking our order (table of 4), my husband had to remind her to bring his coffee. When our food arrived I was served the wrong... More

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.
