The Cheesecake Factory is loved for its vast menu and indulgent dessert lineup. With options spanning from salads to large plates and steaks, it seems only logical that there must be a few healthier Cheesecake Factory options, right?

Perennially, The Cheesecake Factory ranks in the Top 3 Highest Calorie restaurants, as ranked by the Center for Science in the Public Interest and Eat This, Not That.
Keep in mind that, while The Cheesecake Factory is notoriously high-Calorie, it doesn’t mean that there aren’t options available!
