Host was uncommunicative. He didn't speak to us at all, just grabbed menus and headed for a booth. the child with us was afraid of the fishing gear on the wall. The host just turned and left. We were seated near the door and couldn't help seeing that the host was on his phone constantly, only putting it in his... More

We went to Famous Dave's after we attended the Notre Dame - Rice game. The waitress was outstanding, and the food was good. A fun place to have dinner with a group.

Dave's accommodated seven of us quite easily for dinner on Father's Day. The server was efficient and the food was what you would expect from the restaurant. No problems, no issues. We would return if we're in the area.

We stopped by here around 4pm. Got great service and good food. The mother in law said the coleslaw wasn't great. But everything else was as expected.

Our family ate at Famous Dave's in Mishawaka on Saturday, April 13. We were very excited to go but left disappointed. I ordered my ribs without sauce and they were served cold (not even warm) and my husband ordered his regular and said they were hot. His bloody mary was served with a lot of ice in it and he...

With all the hype of the place, it didn't do itself justice. The servers were friendly. I asked for mayo on the side for my burger multiple times and it was never brought out to me. The food the people next to us got looked and smelled way better than what we ordered. So it could depend on what you... More

Very nice restaurant, I love their catfish and cornbread. I have had their ribs a few times, once they were so tough I couldn't eat them. They promptly bought out more. The baskets are a good deal.

We ordered takeout. The sandwich was delicious! I ordered a burnt end sandwich. Very tender and flavorful. The french fries were hot and scrumptious. Great service. A do-over is definitely in the works!
