Salmon was superb, even my spouse who hates fish tried it and loved it. Pineapple slices were excellent, fries awesome. Cedar plank salmon platter. This place is always great with bbq meat that comes right off the bone. Must try if you haven't. Price was fair, waitress friendly.

Yes, I agree the food is good. The brisket is great. The ribs good too. The BBQ chicken is very tasty. You can get the big platter of food to share. It comes with a sampling of meats and way more carbs than necessary. Dave's gets really, really noisy. When the place gets lots of large parties, it gets so... More

You can fill up on the rib tip appetizer alone. But, why stop there when there's so much to tasty tender juicy ribs to taste alone w/ 6 different sauce to try. Only draw back was the side of Mac & cheese. It was lacking that certain crunchy & bacon bite to it.

Great food. Great service. Expect it to be a bit noisy and if you go at popular hours you will wait...which is normal.

My husbands work had Famous Dave's cater the company party and it was sooooo good. I tasted the chicken and brisket and ribs, all super good. The cornbread was also good, my son's favorite.
