Restaurant Review

The Cheesecake Factory, In its class as a casual, family restaurant, meets the mark in serving diners who come to enjoy good food, in a casual, vibrant setting.

The decor is very attractive with very high ceilings, soft contemporary earth tone colors, soft lighting and a large number of booths and tables.

They also serve alcohol and have an attractive where there is a bar menu available.

The seating and aisle area is spacious, and nearby family's with very young children are not intrusive.

The Cheesecake Factory located in the Freehold Raceway Mall, is one the largest restaurants in the Freehold area.

They offer a huge variety of California style selections with fresh ingredients. Their menu is committed to offering all natural chicken without the use of antibiotic's or growth hormones. Most of the fish on the menu are long line or hook and line caught, and their cooking oils contain 0 Grams of trans-fat.

The Cheesecake Factory serves much more than cheesecake with over 250 items on the menu including; appetizers, pizza, pasta, seafood, steaks, salads, sandwiches and a variety of breakfast selections. For the diet conscious or vegetarian diner, there is a good selection of excellent weight management and vegetarian dishes.

The service is very friendly and attentive.

Be forewarned though, expect large crowds and a long wait, they do not take reservations. Although they are very family and kid friendly, and there are many items on the menu that appeal to kids, there is no children's menu.

Call-in curbside service is available for those too busy to wait in line and eat-in, call ahead and have your meal waiting for you at the curb.

Happy Hour takes place in the bar area Monday – Friday from 4:00PM – 6:00PM.
