Dropped in for dinner on the way back from an afternoon of shopping. Meal was fantastic as usual, great atmosphere about the place and the smells of cooking just make your mouth water. Will be back across in a few days towards the end of our holiday for our final visit of the year

Just had the most amazing meal, brisket, chopped pork, chicken tenders and a platter were ordered between us and none of us were disappointed. Brilliant service by Breanna, and drinks at 241 rounded off a fantastic meal. Will definitely be back.

Had a starter, that was a mistake as we couldn't eat all of the feast for two. The ribs and brisket were excellent! A pity were only here for one night as we would certainly go back.

Wasn't disappointed. Had the ribs and the brisket combo with mashed, beans and corn muffin. Mrs Wakey had salmon. Both very good. Some of the best BBQ Ive ever had. Reds back in Leeds UK could learn a thing or two from here! Was a little worried to see that ribs were of the spare and not baby back variety-... More

My husband had been wanting to try this place for ever. So we went there one night and when we walked in the door I thought to myself "hey this is going to be some great food since they have all these trophies up front" so they sat us down and we were SHOCKED on how expensive the food was... More

I joined a group of 15 friends for dinner on July 4th weekend. We had a private room and were assigned 2 servers. They were quick to get us our first drink order and gave us just enough time to review menu and began taking orders. The food came in a reasonable time frame and almost everyone was pleased. My...

I had impromptu company for Fouth of July and decided to check out Famous Daves for take out. I ordered the Feast for Two that included ribs, chicken, brisket, and an assortment of sides. Called about 4 hours ahead of time to place my order. First off, the customer service was superb from the time that I placed my order... More

Famous Dave's was recommended to us while visiting Fort Myers and being BBQ fans we were not disappointed. Couldn't decide on what to have so my wife and I split one of the platters and had a little of everything. Tender brisket, fall off the bone spareribs, chopped pork, perfectly cooked chicken. Just the right amount of sweet and smoke.... More
