The Cheesecake Factory Restaurant Review

: While The Cheesecake Factory is undoubtedly kitschy with its fairy-tale-esque décor, there is something rather charming about this nationwide chain. It’s a family dining destination through and through with a something-for-everyone menu: a variety of pizzas, burgers and fried macaroni and cheese are sure to please the kids, while those with a more experienced palate can enjoy dishes such as chicken Marsala with mushrooms, shrimp scampi, steak Diane or a seared tuna tataki salad. Cheesecake is the obvious dessert choice; it’s selecting just one that’s the problem. Our vote goes to the peanut butter cup fudge ripple or chocolate chip cookie dough.
