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...

They were awesome! We had pulled pork, chicken, brisket, baked potatoes, mac and cheese, coleslaw, corn muffins, brownies and bread pudding. I hope they catered... 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

I wanted to have some BBQ for lunch and read the reviews of places in the area. However, after I read the mixed reviews for most of the nearby places I was uncertain which place to try. I ended up at Famous Dave's and I'm glad that I did. The place was fairly crowded inside (which was a good sign)... More

Famous Dave's is one of my families favorite places to eat at, but unfortunately where we live now, we do not have one around us, so we were very excited that while on our way home from FGCU, we found one! The food was exceptional! I ordered the two meat combo with BBQ chicken and ribs. The chicken was done... More
