The Cheesecake Factory Restaurant Review

: Location, location, location. The lower level of the John Hancock Center could not be a better place for this sprawling fairy-tale-esque dining destination, which is part of a nationwide chain. Of course, a catchall this big has to have a large menu --- here, it’s almost a novel --- to cover every manner of diner and taste preference. From a dozen-plus burgers to steaks, chops and seafood, it does just that. There’s even a Greek-inspired farro salad, white bean hummus and soy-ginger-laced ahi tartare. For the price, most of it passes muster. Needless to say, there are the countless cheesecakes --- from red velvet to peanut butter cup-fudge ripple --- to top things off.
