NOVI, Mich. (WJBK) -

The wait is finally over. On Tuesday, The Cheesecake Factory officially opened the doors to its first location in Michigan.

Diners lined up outside the Twelve Oaks Mall location prior to the 11 a.m. opening. Officials say the 8,400 square-foot dining room holds around 220 people, plus another 60 on the patio.

The Cheesecake Factory founder, David Overton, is a Detroit native. "Having grown up in Detroit and watched my parents start their cheesecake business here in the 1950s, opening a Cheesecake Factory at Twelve Oaks feels like a true homecoming," said Overton.

Besides its namesake dessert, the restaurant features a full menu with more than 250 items. "Whatever America's hungry for, it's on the Cheesecake menu," said Alethea Rowe, marketing director for The Cheesecake Factory.

Diners should know reservations are not accepted and there is no call-ahead seating.
