The Cheesecake Factory Restaurant Review

: The spiral-bound menu is your first hint: whatever you’ve a mind to eat, you’ll probably find it here. Page after page details a universe of possibilities, from chicken samosas and mini corn dogs to Portofino pizza to steak Diane to jambalaya pasta to…well, you get the idea. Beware: The portions are humongous. But the food is fresh and generally well prepared. If you’re in the mood for cheesecake --- and there are more than 35 from which to choose --- consider starting with dessert or you’ll never get there. This place’s cheery vibe and knockout view of the Inner Harbor draw a horde of visitors; prepare for a wait. Other locations.
