That said, restaurants may operate on holiday schedules with reduced hours during ‘open’ holidays, and some locations will open late and/or close early. It’s still a good idea to check whether your nearest location is following similar hours before heading there to get a turkey dinner or whatever your favorite Cheesecake Factory meal may be.

You can check with your nearest location by going directly to the Cheesecake Factory website, which has a function that allows you to search for individual restaurants by zip code, city or state. Hours can vary by location.
