Atlanta Restaurant Reviews

REVIEW: The Cheesecake Factory: Perimeter Mall, Atlanta GA

IMG_0746A longstanding restaurant on the Atlanta food scene is the Cheesecake Factory with its locations spread throughout Atlanta. This nationwide chain is renowned for its good food, great service and its long lines. Fortunately, Melanie and I made a preemptive strike just before 5pm on a steamy Saturday night and avoided any wait, which is virtually unheard of. We were however, seated right near the wait station which made foodie pictures awkward.

The inside of the restaurant is really very cool, decorated in a Mediterranean-like atmosphere. We must have come just at the right time, because there were few tables available.

We were pleased to find that they even had a separate menu, labeled “Skinnylicious”, that had a wide variety of meals under 590 calories. Melanie chose one of the salads and I chose the Spicy Chicken Tacos. We started out with Crab Cake Bites and they were OUT OF THIS WORLD. A few more and a small salad would have made a great meal on their own. We also tried the Fried Zucchini. The zucchini was prepared splendidly and we couldn’t finish the ample quantity served for fear of ruining our dinner.

The entreés did not disappoint either as Melanie could not finish her salad and she enjoyed both the ranch and bleu cheese dressings. I really liked the kick in the Spicy Chicken Tacos but I really didn’t care for tortilla shells that seemed greasy and not strong enough to hold the more than ample serving of chicken it contained.

No meal at The Cheesecake Factory, can be considered complete without cheesecake of course. The sheer variety will make one gasp and you’ll soon realize that many people are just thinking “I’ll have one of each”. Wouldn’t it be fun to just have a tasting bar for cheesecake? Well, the size of just ONE piece of cheesecake is astonishing. It’s really enough to share and still have some to take home for the next day or a delicious midnight snack.

If you’re headed to any of the five Atlanta Cheesecake Factory locations, especially on the weekend, arrive at some crazy non-normal-eating-time or be prepared to wait for 45 minutes MINIMUM. Guten appetit!

    It’s February 19, 2017 My husband’s birthday ,so because he loves cheesecake factory chicken and shrimp gumbo of course that’s where we ended up .what a nightmare from the very start.i gave the hostess our name, she gives me a light thingy , and tells me it’s going to be 10 to 15 minute wait no problem . About 10 minutes later the buzzer goes off ,we go to the front and the lady tells us to wait to be seated everybody is being seated that came up after us so I’m like OK what’s going on, why did our buzzer go off for us to come up to the front and just watch everyone else be seated. There’s no apology or anything . so the people that work for your company they act like they are paying us to come in and patronize your company instead of us paying you for a Service . What a nightmare ,but it doesn’t end there, we are finally taken to our table , to be greeted with dirty dishes and silverware , I then asked to speak to the manager , after about 15 minutes,he Came over and apologized , Whom also acted as if he was paying us to come here instead of us paying for a service. What a nightmare . Oh and that’s not all I ordered a kale salad with dressing on the side , when my salad arrived had salad dressing all . So here’s my husband having his birthday meal by himself because by this time I’m over it ,what a nightmare . What a waste of Sunday time . But lesson learned never again. It’s just not like it used to be when I was a hostess or waitress . People used to care about the customers . Thank you for the horrible experience .D.Mccall
