Unsanitary, Poor Quality, Over Priced – UNSANITARY: Tables smelled like they wiped them with a wet dog. Menu's were nasty. Waitress was scratching her butt then serving customers.Restroom was urine soaked.
FOOD: Food was served luke warm to cold. Flavor was lacking.
ATMOSPHERE: Noisy and crowded.
SERVICE: Slow and unresponsive
BOTTOM LINE: Don't waste your money. This place is definitely not worth it.
New Favorite Restaraunt – My sister and I went her for dinner while we were in Tampa. It was 10:15 when we got there, I believe they close at 11. They still treated us as if we had all the time in the world. Our waiter was very bubbly and helpful. He gave great recommendations on drinks and cheesecake choices. The entres were fantastic as well as the cheesecake. We will definitely be coming back in the near future. (:
Decadent cheesecakes and classic American cuisine makes this a popular chain. – In Short
Faux-rustic finishes and colorful light fixtures abound at this almost always crowded chain. The thick-as-a-book menu features Americanized versions of worldly cuisines--Mexican, Vietnamese, Italian, Thai--but succeeds best with American classics. Burgers are a good choice, especially the ""Roadside Sliders,"" mini burgers served as appetizers. The myriad cheesecakes are over-the-top in concept and decadence. You'll leave full, with leftovers.
Good food and desert menu. – I was surprised to find that I enjoyed this restaurant. I am not someone who enjoys deserts, so going to a place named after a desert did not excite me. But the menu is large and filled with so many interesting foods that I had a hard time picking just one main course. When I did I found the food to be very good and the service was great. My date did pick a good desert and the little bite I took of that was good (just not my thing).
More than 30 varieties of the signature dessert make up only a part of this chain restaurant's gigantic international menu. – In Short
Oddball architecture--curving surfaces and colorful light fixtures--and thick-as-a-book menus distinguish this restaurant from other eateries. The encyclopedic menu spans the globe with enormous American interpretations of dishes like pad thai, shrimp tacos, miso salmon, pasta Milanese and a slate of appetizers, sandwiches, entrees and desserts too extensive to list. The namesake cheesecakes, ranging from original to peanut-butter-cup-fudge ripple, are over the top in both concept and decadence.
