The food sucks, honestly I never really eat there. I just pickup a slice of cheesecake. They have this encyclopedia menu of never-ending menu options - but the reality is they have a ton of options because they all are just mediocre.

Both Adam's Peanut Butter cup and the Reese's peanut butter cup cakes are both awesome.

Crispy brussel sprouts ($9)

Don't be fooled by it's size.
It's fluff.
It's mostly loose brussel sprout leaves :(

Will try the peanut butter cheesecake because of your recommendation

The one I don't order? (sorry) ;)

I won't go so far as to say the food sucks but I will say it's bland-ish corporate-American pre-cooked/packaged fare at its finest. The single term I would use to describe it would most likely be "meh".

When my ex and I used to visit her parents in Flori-duh we would always eat there at least once... it was the old folks favorite place! (most of the food is senior-citizen friendly)

Man, have not eaten there in 20 years. National chain restaurants are crap.

Still got a nostalgia for some fast food places, but chain restaurants are a commitment and not worth it.

I've only been there once, and I remember nothing about it. The prevailing sentiment here sounds about right. A chain restaurant that tastes like Sysco; same as all the other chain restaurants. Get whatever. It'll be inoffensive, uninteresting, and you won't be hungry when you leave.

Yeah if you have lots of mom & pop options or small localized chains started by an individual - why go to a national chain? I guess if you don't have those options, it is what it is. I think the only decent chain I've been to recently was a Texas Roadhouse. It was decent. Definitely better than a Cheesecake factory.

Reese's.
I'm assuming that's a dollop of peanut butter on top?

Before lockdown their food was decent. After lockdown things degraded a lot. Their bread used to be good, I loved that black sweet bread but cant recall the name. I like most of their food years ago. Now, not anything. Not even the fuckin cheesecake.
