The great thing about Cheesecake is the hours - its the only place open at 11pm in this burgh. Darn it!!!!

It's kind of sad. Cheesecake Facory was one of the only reasonably-priced restaurants with a full-size menu in the Brentwood area. I will miss it.

Agree that it's one of the few reasonably priced restaurants in the neighborhood, but they are more of a nuisance than a benefit to residents that live close to the restaurant. For now, I'll rejoice in the simply pleasure of having ample parking on my street. Hopefully the next restaurant to fill the spot will offer their employees garage parking elsewhere so we can finally get our street back.

I'll miss this place so nice to have a full menu, open late, affordable . I am walking distance as well and I really didn't mind their mice employees parking on "our" street. That's just the way it goes I'll will miss it :(

I agree this place was awesome. Great food nice atmosphere great menu and very reasonable. Always seemed busy can't understand why they would allow there lease to expire. Guess it's greed on the part of the owners of the property. If that's the case I hope they have a long wait for a new tenant . Greed is killing this country. Well we will miss you cheese cake !!! Ron

Ron, I love how you surmise that the landlord is greedy with ZERO information. Do you know the average retail rental rate per square foot in Brentwood? Do you know what Cheesecake factory was paying? Maybe the Restaurant wasn't making enough and the company choose not to lose money on that space? You say Greed is killing our country, really, I think it is the result of a "crisis of culture", a culture in which it is perfectly acceptable to spend money on luxuries and vices while refusing to take care of one's self. It is a culture based on the irresponsible credo that "I can do whatever I want to because someone else will always take care of me." This was not the type of culture that made our country great, and certainly not the type of culture that will make our country rebound from where we currently are. We are in for a rude awakening in this country and the longer we wait to deal with entitlements and entitlement programs the more everyone is going to have to give up in their lives, get ready because in the next decade this country is going to feel pain it has never felt before.

I was shocked to hear this. I think this must say bad things about the local economy. I'm a little scared, actually. I think our political leaders and anti business climate has done more damage than we know and it will takes years if ever for things to turn around. If I didn't have family in Texas I'd be in trouble.

@ Brentwood Resident #9 It's a restaurant closing. The election and all the vitriol that goes with it should move on as well. The fight is over, you guys lost. You Republicans are so transparent and so easily riled. News flash! Ron know's about as much of this closing as you do of running the country. Relax and concentrate on runnIng your life instead of telling everyone else how to run theirs. PUTZ!
