I'd first like to point out the incredible customer service at this restaurant. We have been there several times in recent months, and are always blown away by the customer service - from the friendly host staff to the attentive servers. Host staff and/or management will drop by your table, ask if you're enjoying your meal, and ask to clear... More

Been to Famous Dave's many times since it's close to where we live. It is a casual "down home" atmosphere. Tried another BBQ place in Maple Grove but wasn't as good as Dave's. The sauce is good and there are other choices at the table if you want it spicier. You can also order without the sauce if you don't... More

This is a chain restaurant that specializes in ribs. The ribs are very good....from a midwest perspective that might nor truly appreciate the finer points of BBQ. I have been to several Famous Dave's locations, and they are all pretty much the same...and all pretty dependable in the quality of service and food. They feature several local craft beers, which...

Warm and inviting restaurant on a cold night. Good steak and ribs. Go for the pecan pie. Chatty TMI waitress was annoyingly nosey and loud.

Dave's has recently began offering 3 different styles of Flat Iron Steak. We ordered one of them this evening. It was excellent. We each got the "Savory Flat Iron" which is topped with a garlic butter and comes with loaded garlic mashed potatoes and Texas Toast. What a wonderful meal! The steak came exactly as we ordered it - rare... More

We visit Maple Grove several times a year and Famous Dave's is a must visit! Had dinner there last night and per usual it was great. We like their regular ribs and ask for middles as we don't like the crusty ends. They are more than happy to accommodate us. We split a half slab and with the 2 sides... More

I eat at FD a couple times a mouth. Today's visit was the first time to order a burger. It was very good. I had the Jacked and Stacked medium well. It was a perfectly cooked burger patty with Texas brisket mixed in and topped with a huge load of fried onion stings. The bun was soft and grilled. I... More

We love Famous Daves. It's a hit with family members too. We meet brother-in-law and his wife for dinner often. Super ribs, chicken, brisket, sausages and even have cat fish. Not usually found in midwest restaurants and it's excellent. Very reasonable lunch menu. A large verity of BBQ sauces and they have the best baked beans in the world.

We were in town to visit relatives and had heard good things about Famous Dave's so tried this one because it was the closest. My aunt and I had the ribs and my wife and cousin had the brisket. There was more grizzle than meat on the ribs and the brisket was tough and chewy. The cornbread and beans were... More
