Family style lunch.

8 of us had lunch here, family style and for the cost we all had a real good meal. Chicken, ribs, brisket and enough to feed everyone with all the sides included. It was good.

I had take out here and the order was hosed!!! Even though the error was corrected (after discovering it at home and driving back) the policy is to go over the order and the young lady at the counter was "too busy" for that. There was one other person in the take out area?!?!?!?

Our last family outing here two weeks ago was pleasant, but by no means the best experience we've had here. Although service was attentive, we thought the prices had gone up but not the quality. The menu is mostly comprised of southern style dishes, like cajun catfish and all kinds of BBQ ribs, with a variety of extra sauces on... More

I love Famous Dave's Bbq. I like the variety of the different sauces and all the different side choices. The atmosphere is always friendly and clean!

We used to have Famous Dave's in Muskegon, but it went under a few years ago for reasons I can't understand and has been replaced by an overpriced Japanese steakhouse with staff who barely speak English. I am thankful this restaurant in Grandville remains. At 4 PM on a Saturday, we had no wait at all and the place was... More

I eat at famous faves approximately every 3 months with either my friends or family members. Saturday evenings are fairly busy, but when you have patrons waiting with multiple tables open, this leaves and undesirable experience. But, the waitress made up the poor service by attending to our demanding needs. The September visit was just one abno Mao data point... More

The flavor of the ribs was all right but no better than I've had anywhere else. The ribs were tough enough that you had to saw the dinky stip of meat from the massive bone. It was food but not good enough to make another trip and the service was take the order after a long wait, bring the food... More
