Each and everytime I have gone to the CCF it has been what I expect, and more. Living all over the US, including Europe, this location provides great food and service and more. I am not a townie or from Columbus originally. Some

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.

Pros: lots of hype

Cons: no substance to the hype

Although the cheesecake is okay, the food is very overpriced and mediocre. Service is slow. I can't understand the attraction.

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.

Pros: Great cheesecake, large menu

Cons: Expensive, loud, average food, long wait

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.

Pros: Huge Portions, Friendly staff, 40+ desserts, endless choices,

Cons: Tables are pretty close together in some areas, can get loud at times.

.

Wait is way to long on the weekends most times up to 3 hours
waiting area is way to small
but the food is great

Cons: waiting, waiting area

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 was very impressed with the level of service at the Cheesecake Factory. When we sat down with our 1 year old and 3 year old, the hostess brought each child their own plate of "appetizers" with sliced bananas and bread just for them. It was nice to keep them busy for a little while we decided on their ENORMOUS menu. They have 3 or 4 pages of appetizers just to start. And, of course, you have to save room for one piece of their 30 some kinds of cheesecake. It is rather expensive. We paid $80 for our 2 entrees, 2 cheesecakes, and an appetizer pizza for our 3 year old. They don't have a children's menu, but they will size orders for children.

PROS: Enormous food selection; wonderful service for families with kids
CONS: Really expensive.

The food here is delicious. The service here is great! And to talk about the cheescake, every flavor you might even think about eating, wonderful cheeescake. I think the food is worth a little bit higher priced. The wait is always like 3hrs but atleast you can walk around. I highly recommend this place.

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!

The Cheesecake Factory might have a long wait to be seated but then you won't mind once you've ejoyed one of their delicious cheesecake creations, of which there are many.
With one of the largest menus I've ever seen, you could go there every day for a month and order something new each time.

I can't believe this restaurant is even in the Family Friendly category. With no Children's Menu and hour plus waits, I wouldn't even consider going back with my children.

My fiance and I have always been intrigued by the sheer numbers that eat at the Cheesecake Factory at Easton. The first time we ate there we disliked it, but dismissed it thinking we just picked the wrong meals. The second time, the meal was okay, so we thought maybe we were getting close to experiencing what the crowds come here for. The third time, the meal again was tasteless and overpriced, but the avocado egg rolls were pretty good. And finally today, we went back to try the egg rolls again, and to give it another shot. The meals were both tasteless, and the avacado egg rolls didn't live up to our memories. I honestly can't tell you why all the people come here, maybe they all think that someone knows something they don't.

I remember any time I used to visit Chicago I would make it a point to visit the Cheesecake Factory, and thought how great it would be to have on in Columbus. Now, I am happy that they still get the same crowds they did when they first opened. I don't understand people complaining about waiting 2 hours for a seat. If you want fast food, go to McDonald's. There are plenty of other stores within walking distance to pass the time. It's worth the wait! I have never met a person who could eat a whole dinner and cheesecake in one sitting. The servings are huge and the food is good! There is no better cheesecake in Columbus. This is on a short list of restaurants to take visitors to Columbus.

Search no more... this menu is absolu! Brunch is escpecially fabulous. They serve a diverse menu until 2 p.m. which has you craving the Lox Onions and Eggs all week long. They recently switched up their french toast and no longer deep fry the servings, but they offer them now with banana's, strawberries, pecans and chocolate syrup (for the sweet tooth). Mimosa's and Bellini's are fabulous and if I could recommend a drink (that I have only been able to dind here in Columbus) is the Strawberry Martini!!

This place offers such a huge variety of food from pastas to chicken, steaks, seafood, burgers, salads, etc... and the portions are often ridiculously large. Many people do not finish their meal and much is wasted. While the food is good enough to fill the stomach, I have yet to have a meal here where I have been truly happy with the taste. If you want an enormous plate of average food, this is your joint. Simply put, quantity over quality.
