noting.

reraising, no advice, but we generally tend to stay away from mall locations that involve food, corporate chain or otherwise.

There is no separate cheesecake factory allergy menu. I have been there are number of times and surprisingly the wait staff and even the manager were very knowledgeable when it came down to allergies. If you have a peanut allergy or a nut allergy you can almost work around any item on the menu (almost). I have never had any problems myself but just make sure you ask before you order and always confirm when you receive your food as well.

There is a separate cheesecake factory allergen menu but only online. I have never seen anything tagged in the actual restaurant but maybe things have changed.

I have searched for a cheescake factory nut allergy menu online and originally did not find anything allergy specific. Finally I did a lot of digging on the cheesecake factory website and they do have a great section built out just for allergies. If you go to https://www.thecheesecakefactory.com/allergy you can see that they have developed a great allergen menu tool. You can choose from the following allergens:

Eggs
Fish
Gluten
Milk
Peanuts
Shellfish
Soy
Tree Nuts
Wheat

When you choose one or more, their menu will pop up. If the items has a green light next to it, the menu item does not contain the allergen that you chose. A red light says it does. So if you have a peanut allergy or a nut allergy this is a great place to start.

I have always used this guide: https://www.thecheesecakefactory.com/allergy. You can select your allergy from a check box and it is quite helpful.

I have not had many issues in the past. They have a good allergen menu. Now I am only ordering for pickup so I can make sure that they got the order right when I pick it up instead of having it delivered.

I have never had an issue when I have dined in the restaurant because you can be very specific with the waiter and make it clear you have allergies. I do not like to order take out when I cannot talk to anyone.
