I had a sample of their cheesecake but in a box at Costco.
I wasn't impressed with it. I had expected to be but that didn't happen.
We picked this place to see if inside cheesecake was better.
No it isn't.
Most people in Columbus are OSU students with very little experience with excellent food.
Cheesecake Factory does not produce it either..
Their 3 layer huge cake was terrible too. I would not have served it much less displayed it. The texture was tough, the holes in the cake gargantuan. If you know cakes you know its going to be tough just from its appearance.
I won't be back.

I'm not really sure why there is always a 2 hour wait for this place. The menu is so large, that they cannot specialize in anything. Therefore, everything I have eaten is average and generic tasting. Also, if you do not get seated in a booth, you'll be sitting on top of your dining neighbor. They do live up to their namesake though- the cheesecake is delicious.

One of the only places I know that can appeal to all of my friends and their varying tastebuds. And three hours is not really what you will wait. Went in with 6 people last friday and it was under an hour. I guess they are now taking some large party reservartions but that they are limited so call way ahead. Although the menu is long the staff is really good about guiding you in the right direction. You always have leftovers for luch the next day and although they dont have a printed childrens menu they do have a lot to offer, just ask. Im a huge fan and dine there more then anywhere else in Columbus, and when I travel.

If your goal is to spend a lot of money on a meal, then this certainly is one of the area's hotspots.
The first thing to hit me was that the menu, which was more than 10 pages I believe, was 1/2 advertisements for other companies...
After that, choosing something was a challenge - so many things sounded potentially pleasing.
However, after making my choice, I found that the entree wasn't even available... they were ""out"" of the hamburger I'd requested. I choose a shrimp sandwich, which was average.
I then shared a piece of cheesecake with my wife.
The lunch was about double what I would normally pay for a meal... more than I'd normally pay for a supper. The restraunt was noisy.
The staff was relatively attentive.
I will be going again, to see if perhaps I just hit a bad day for the kitchen.

I don't know how hard it is to please some people, but I have been to many nice restaurants around Columbus and I can definitely say that the Cheesecake Factory is at the top of my list of places to go. They have great appetizers, main courses and fabulous desserts. I have been to the Cheesecake Factory over 10 times with many different people and none of us have ever left disappointed. And you have to try the Georgia Peach while you are waiting for your table around the bar. The only complaints, longs waits and not a big enough bar area. It's worth the wait so go and enjoy!!

I never thought I'd say a restaurant had too many options until I came to the Cheesecake Factory. The menu is almost too vast (as are the portions!); while the food I've tried has always been average to above av, this isn't a restaurant that is ""known"" for a certain special dish or two, and I find that I would prefer that. Instead, you're hit with such variety, that deciding can sometimes be impossible. Why have so many mediocre choices when you can have a choice between a few spectacular dishes?
The cheesecake though - that's well worth the trip. Go for dessert!
