Myself and 2 colleges went to Famous Dave's for dinner. They passed with flying colours again. Great food and drinks at an amazing price. Thank you Jenny for great service.

We had dinner here on a Friday evening, arriving early enough to be seated right away. There are many TVs up on the walls showing mostly sports, which is pretty typical for BBQ joints around here. Our server was friendly and was able to accommodate our request to split dinners. We had a combination of pulled pork, chicken and ribs,... More

We always have a good experience at Famous Dave's. I have to be gluten free and they are always very informed about what I can and cannot have. This is a tremendous help, since finding safe gluten free can be a problem. We are always happy with our servers and whatever food we try is pretty tasty.

We don't have a Famous Dave's where we're from, in Ohio. Discovered it. Loved it. Love good BBQ. Hubby and I got some to go, since they were about to close when we walked in, and picnicked outside. The next day, we picked up our daughter and her friend and all went to another location in Westland, and ate dinner... More

This used to be one of my favorites but since the last year that they removed the pecan pie from their dessert menu I assumed it would be one of my last visits. This year I was there and the food (taste and presentation) was lower quality than other years. They need to really work on bring this restaurant to... More

Besides the fact that the food was TO DIE FOR the caterers were terrific. Yvonne and Rick were on focus! They served, made sure food was stocked, set up and cleaned up, communicated, and circulated to pick up plates and make sure everyone was taken care of. It was a birthday celebration and Dave's made it possible for everyone to... More

For a them style restaurant it does things tastefully and offers delicious food and cold refreshments too that are welcome. Service is fast and efficient and... More

This is a great restaurant for BBQ, and Blue's type music (in the background) if that's your thing. All of the BBQ here is good especially St. Louis style ribs. Catfish fillets also real good. Order the Wilbur beans - you won't be sorry. Salmon Pate for an appetizer is outstanding. Servers are all pretty good and all of the... More
