Cheesecake Factory's new Clearwater location will open this fall

Start thinking about your order now.


Clearwater's Westfield Countryside mall announced The Cheesecake Factory's plans to open a location in between JCPenney and Macy’s by this fall.

“We are thrilled to kick off the new year announcing the addition of The Cheesecake Factory,” Westfield Countryside said in a release. “As our community grows, we aim to continually cater to our guests with this delicious restaurant that will bring such delight to individuals and families alike.”

If you’ve never been to a Cheesecake Factory, God bless you. The restaurant chain offers a wide variety of American-style cuisine and over 50 desserts, including 35 different varieties of cheesecake. So make sure whoever you’re dining with isn’t indecisive, or it might make for a long night.

The Clearwater Cheesecake Factory will have imported limestone floors, custom wood columns, hand-painted murals and contemporary décor. Future date night destination vibes.

Until then, you can slide by one of the three other Cheesecake Factory locations in Florida, with locations in Tampa, Brandon and Sarasota. The Cheesecake Factory joins other Westfield restaurants like BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse and P.F. Chang's China Bistro, besides the loaded food court vendors.

Westfield Countryside mall is located at 27001 U.S. Highway 19 N. Suite 1039, Clearwater.
