I realize Famous Dave's is a chain and can suffer from what it takes to be a successful franchise, but that being said, my experience at list location was quite delightful.

Had friends in from out of town & decided to get some bbq. It was okay but nothing to get excited about. The sampler platter was disappointing (onion straws were cold, boneless wings were hard, rib tips were dry). The 2 meat platter is a pretty good staple. The pulled chicken salad was okay. The highlight was the Hawaiian flatbread.... More

We have been going to this restaurant every few months since it opened and were quite disappointed on our last visit. In addition to changing the plates and presentations, the food was not nearly as good as it has been in the past. We won't be going back.

Distracted and scarce. Delivered cold appetizers but she never came back for us to ask for replacement. Dropped off tea but only one splenda...none at any of the empty tables around us either. Couple other minor probs but in the end waited 15 minutes after she took half the plates to ask for box and check. Place was an icebox.... More

Stopped in here for a business lunch. Exterior: the exterior is clean and presentable. It had a large parking lot with plenty of empty spaces. Interior: there were several different sections I noticed. To the right of the door, there was a bar area (where we were seated), to the left were several different dining areas with a lot of...

A spacious layout made it enjoyable to allow young kids to just be themselves. The menu had lots of choices for red-meat lovers, salad lovers and finger food for kids. Plate portions were just the right size with a wide choice of sauces for the meat and dressings for the salads. The wait staff were relaxed and friendly, gave us... More

It has been awhile since I have been here to eat. So today I came in for a rack of ribs, had to take home half of the order. The ribs were meaty and very good, the amount of fries and potato salad portions were on the small side in fact you can say the potato salad portion was tiny.... More

We visited the restaurant during non lunch hours on a Saturday. The restaurant was decorated in a cozy, lodge theme. Clean restrooms, huge bar area separate from the main dining room and even patio seating. We chose to sit in the dining room to watch a football game on the large screen tv. Our waiter literally had no affect about... More

Visited FD's for happy hour - missed it by a few minutes but the bartender still fixed us some drinks at the reduced price. She was also our waitress on the outside patio and she was great - friendly, funny and she gave us great service. the food, however, was another story... we come here often and, the last several...
