If you're nearby a Cheesecake Factory, and it's late, then go for it. But if it's time for dinner, then expect on waiting for a very long time. Every time I've gone to the one in Sherman Oaks, the line takes forever, and the bar is very competitive. The food just isn't worth it. There's so much stuff on the menu that I can't decide on what to eat, and then I always just order whatever at the last second, and I'm never really satisfied with it.
