There is a lot of booze in this place, I love going in here after work, just to chill out and have a cold one. I have to spread the word about this place.

I love the raspberry ice cream in here. They also have some amazing flavors too. This place is just amazing and fun, very warm and welcoming.

I like this Cheesecake Factory location for when I'm already at the Cambridgeside Galleria doing my shopping and then need a hearty lunch/dinner. I'd say this is definitely the more casual location (sorry, but I think the Cambridgeside Galleria is really dingy/ghetto) so I'd prefer to come here for lunch rather than dinner. Their best lunches, imo, are their sandwich collection. Specifically, my favorite sandwich there of all is the Navajo - "Warm Fry-Bread Stuffed with Grilled Chicken, Avocado, Lettuce, Tomato, Red Onion and Mayonnaise" is what they have on their Website, but I ask for no mayo, and it comes served with french fries or a green salad (as most if not all of their sandwich selections do). But the best part about any Cheesecake Factory is that they have a good selection of yummy appetizers and cocktails, but both options are pretty pricey for your standard chain food/drinks. I'd just recommending coming here with a decent sized group to share a couple of appetizers and save money :)

Cons: Definitely not my favorite Cheesecake Fact.

This was one of the best dining experiences I've had in the past few months, and the best part was I didn't even have to walk into the restaurant. I placed my order on Foodler roughly an hour before I normally eat dinner and by the time my meal showed up (about 45 minutes) I was ready for some delicious food.

Let me start by saying that the Roadside Sliders are incredible. Rarely will I order something as conventional as a cheeseburger when I order from a restaurant that has a ton more to offer, but after the first bite I was completely hooked. They're basically mini-burgers that you can finish in about 4 or 5 bites (1 or 2 if you're REALLY hungry). They were so flavorful I had to order another batch the following week. Top it off with a slice of Peanut Butter Cheesecake and you'll be one happy customer. An excellent choice for any occasion.

Over $50. for LUNCH for two people is beyond rediculous. The food wasn't good, either. Their cheesecake wasn't true cheesecake, it was mousse made to look like cheesecake. I wouldn't go there again!!

Just do it... Everything is great, the portions are super, prices are right, good service and a huge menu. Might wait a while to get seated.

Ive never had a negative experience here once I got past the long wait. The servers were friendly, the portions great and the desserts..wow. If you dont have room, get one to go. The three different kinds of chocolate cake are to die for.

Tons of variety so going in a group is never a problem- every one will find something they like.

Yes, if you go on a weekend or in the evening, chances are it will be crowded. Have a drink at the bar and relax. Just dont go if you are in a hurry to get in and out.

Pros: Dessert, Portions, Choices

Cons: Wait time

Went on a Sunday, July 17th (my birthday!) was seated immediately but we went rather late in the evening. Service was outstanding... server was attentive and had a great personality. Food was delicious I had the chicken and biscuits (wasn't as good as the one I have had in San Francisco but still pretty good) I noticed they didn't give me many chicken breast but a LOT of gravy and potatoes. BF ordered the Jambalaya, sante fe salad and the turkey club is what we all had NO ONE could finish their entrees, but for the most part everyone was pleased with their dinner.

Pros: Service, food portions, variety of menu

Cons: no reservations, wait can be long

I went to the Cheesecake Factory in Cambridgeside Gallery and found the service to be horrible. We asked for their largest dish, they said no one finished the Chicken and Biscuit. Unfortunatly after getting it we found the reason. The chickens was really poor quality and made us very unhappy.

This is not to call this place bad. Though the service can be shabby at times. The rest of the food is great. The cheesecake is good though the variety can make it great or overwhealming depending on the person.

Price however really can damage a College Student's budget. Beware of the high prices. With drinks a big meal can easily hit 20 bucks a person before dessert. Though it is enjoyable.

The selection itself is a good reason to go. You can get Thai, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, burgers and steaks under one roof.

This cheescake Factory does not accept reservation, but instead tall you that you will be called in 20 minutes and they end up calling you in 2 hours! By the time you are seated your cravings have gone bazaar!
Overall the restaurant is great, they give you plenty of food, and not to mention the desserts are AWSOME! What kills it is the waiting and no reservations!

The time I went there, the service was good. However; it was so loud in the restaurant that you could not hear your own conversations. Overcrowded and not comparable to the one in Prudential. Seats are squished which makes an impression you eat at a foodcourt.

Everything on the menu is very yummy. Each person in your party must get a different type of cheese cake and everyone shares! Try the Martini's, they're great too!

The menu is huge... really huge. It has way too much to choose from. At the end of the meal, get the cheese cake, whatever one, they're all good, every single one of them.

Cheesecake does a great job in presentation and very large portions, great variety and comfortable environment. The food tastes above average to good and is good value for what you pay for. However all the food is saturated with butter and extremely rich with fat. If you aren't concerned with weight, calories, digestion you will love it.

Cheesecake factory has great good... and the cheesecake.. well..... it's the best I've every tasted... and believe most would agree... and of course, there is every flavor imaginable.... a little bit of a wait for a seat most of the time, but well worth it!

I am from San Francisco, but I was poking around the "Best of" list for some other cities and how a goofy CHAIN restarurant with lousy food can be voted in as one of Boston's Top Ten restaurants is beyond me. I suspect a scam!

Cheesecake Factory ( Chestnut Hill Location) is pretty good. I work right next to one so we get take out for lunch and it's A LOT of food. Huge portions. I wouldn't go out to dinner there with friends, maybe it's because I just think of it as a take out place now. When it first opened I really liked it but now they kind of just slop everything on the plate. It is a bit pricey for a chain but you do get a lot of food. The bar is fun and the ambiance is nice. There is always an hour wait in the evening and the cheesecake is too die for. It is pretty consistent comfort food.Oh. and GREAT BRUNCH on Sunday

I've always had a pretty good meal at the Cheesecake factory. I recomend the salads, the salmon, fish tacos and of course save room for cheesecake. Reasonable prices for a pretty hearty meal.
