We attempted to dine there today but it was a series of disappointments. The hostess tried to seat us at a table in a dark room next to the restroom. When asked if we could sit on the other table next to the window, She fussed and said it is closed. Over 70% of the restaurant was empty at 1:00... More

If you are looking for Bar B Q this is the place to be. Order the trash can lid and you won't be disappointed. This meal is served in an actual trash can lid filled with corn on the cob, brisket, chicken, ribs, bowl of baked beans with a surprisingly good amount of meat cooked in the beans, cole slaw...

The food is great barbecue, and vegetables great too. The meat and chicken is moist and tasty. The sauce comes in different flavor to suit your taste. The meals are pricey ,but great food

Typical of Famous Dave's, the food and service was great. I had the Catfish dinner and enjoyed it very much. The fish was tender and it was battered and fried just right. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. I would certainly recommend this location.

I have enjoyed barbecue from dozens of places including Famous Dave's on numerous occasions. However, my most recent experience with them will be my last. My food was barely warm, and my order was incorrect. Problem is, once I got my food, I didn't see a server or manager for close to 20 minutes. My wife's food was not hot... More

Wow, I could not disagree more with some of the negative reviews on this site -- Famous Dave's BBQ was well worth the visit. The smell alone was worth the trip and gave that real southern feel. The pulled-pork was outstanding, and by no means "smoked too long" (is there is such a thing?) and fries were outrageously tasteful and... More

Famous Daves BBQ is not what I would call traditional BBQ. It is cooked too long and the "falling off the bone" certainly won't win you any trophy's at the BBQ cookoffs. The best part is the sauce and it is a bit sweet for my taste.

When traveling, I try to eat healthy and Famous Dave's gives me a delicious option. The cedar plank salmon with broccoli and grilled pineapple is tasty and healthy. It is my go-to choice. With a glass of crisp white wine, I know I will enjoy my food when all around me others are eating BBQ.

We are a large family so we always order to-go from here. The servers in the To-go area are always nice and pay "special" attention to my kids when I bring them. Sometimes we only order the corn bread because it's that good. My husband loves the 1/2 chicken.
