Famous Dave's in December

Seated quickly at a booth that held 6 for just two people. Waitress was quick to respond and drinks and food ordered quickly. All came to the table just as fast and plentiful in it's proportions. We enjoyed the experience and wold return again.

Visited twice on our trip and had 2 excellent meals with prompt and friendly service. The Feast for 2 on Tuesday's is fabulous and great value. Will definitely be back on our next visit to Saginaw.

When we got out of the car I knew this food would be good. The barbecue smell in the air was amazing. Our food was very good and service was amazing. Enjoyed our dining experience. The food was priced reasonably and I even forced myself to get the banana pudding for desert. That was the best part of the whole... More

We did a retirement party here - and they set us up in our own room. Staff was helpful in arrangements ahead of time and service during party. Already knew the barbecue would be delicious - and it was. Set up large group with multiple trash can lid combination platters.

I went to Famous Dave's in Saginaw on my birthday this year and liked the food. This was during the lunch hour and the crowd wasn't too bad and the food was really good.

Our meal was really good we'll go back for sure. The service was good and the place was clean. Meat was fresh not frozen.

Seems very crowded & rushed. Expensive. But food is good. I wouldn't mind trying it again to see if it is different.

The hubby loves his barbecue so we stopped here while in town. We got take out which might be why we waited about 30 minutes for our food. Fortunately the food was good. Prices average but food not! Worth the wait.

Went on a Monday night around 6 PM. Not busy at all. Seated immediately, in a booth, after requesting one. Service was very attentive, but gave us time to check out the menu thoroughly and digest our food before dessert. I ordered a chicken dish, and DH had ribs. Loved the ribs and chicken, the potatoes and Mac -N- Cheese... More

Until we have been stopping once a week for a month. And all we can say is FANTASTIC! Great food, great service, decent prices. It's a wonderful change. Food always hot and smoking good. A well rounded menu is also very nice. It's also very nice to see a manager going around making sure that your meal is okay. Start... More
