  • Cheesecake Factory: The interia looks like the TARDIS

    by AliceInHerDress Written Jul 10, 2006

    I went there a couple of years ago. as others have said it was quite busy and I noticed there was a lot of people with young children in there. The vanilla cheescake was excellent. I still remember what I had two years on, so it must have been good. It is at the base of the John Hancock Building - the big black one with the X's. Have a trip up there as well, much less crowded than Sears Tower.

    As an aside, for all of you British readers the interia puts you in mind of the TARDIS.

  • Cheesecake Factory: Dying to Eat at Cheesecake Factory on Michigan Ave

    by msnuggie Written Feb 18, 2009

    The Cheesecake Factory in Chicago is a chain restaurant but we really love it! The service is good and the prices aren't bad. The only problem with this on Michigan Avenue is that it's PACKED. It's always at least an hour to an hour and a half wait.

    My tip is this.

    It's a little known FACT that you can walk right into the bar area, get a table without waiting and order from the full menu. We do this every single time we go in Chicago. People perceive it as more of a waiting area so tables open up fast. The last 2 times in Chicago, we've walked right in, gotten a table in the bar area (which incidentally is no different than the restaurant area) and eaten and been out within an hour and a half. Depending on how fast we wanted to go.

    Favorite Dish: I'll eat anything, most things I've tried are great.

  • The Cheesecake Factory: Great place for a midnight sweet tooth

    by cranecafe Written Mar 23, 2008

    Went to see a show at the Watertower Theater with our high school band and wandered over here for an after dinner treat. The staff was very accomodating of our large group and kept our tab on one bill even though our tables were scattered throughout the joint. Our waiters were great. Treated our kids as adults and had fun conversing with them.

    Favorite Dish: Cheesecake - any kind you can imagine.

    The Cheesecake Factory: Really awesome design and food!

    by frenchmoxie Written Aug 13, 2004

    So many types of cheesecakes to choose from! A slice is expensive though, around $6 a piece. They serve dinner food that is also very yummy! I got the grilled cheese, but wanted to get the Asian Veg. Stir-Fry. Be sure to make reservations ahead of time. The wait for us was around 45 minutes.

    Favorite Dish: Desserts!

    The Cheesecake Factory: Good Food In Amazing Décor

    by greencard Updated Oct 7, 2002
    See? Dreamy!

    The Cheesecake Factory in Chicago is located on the bottom of the Hancock Building. The interior of the restaurant is just dreamy -- it really makes me feel like I'm dining inside a mushroom. The ceiling, the columns, the walls are so bulbous and esoteric.

    Favorite Dish: Cheesecake, obviously! There are a million kinds, and you can have them shipped home.

    The 'Cheesecake Factory' in the basement and the bar on the 95th floor of the Hancock Tower offer great food and drinks.
