The service was very good and I always appreciate a waiter who is willing to provide their opinion on what they and other patrons like and don't like as much. I find that at this restaurant from more than one person.

We went to Famous Dave's for the first time. They explained the menu and what they like to eat they let us taste all the bbq sauces so we knew what we were ordering. They even gave us a bottle of bbq sauce. I will stop at that one again when we are in the area.

Ordered about 5pm on a Saturday. Called it in. Order taker seemed to be having some trouble, but read back of order was correct. Food (Cheeseburger, ribs, and two desserts) was ready on time. Had to request utensils. Got back to the hotel room and discovered that the burger was not well done as requested, was not ketchup as requested... More

Eat here in a Monday night. The food was Excellent. I recommend the 'burnt ends'. First time I've had them and it won't be the last. Our server was prompt friendly and attentive without being overly so. Gave some great beer recommendations and even offered a small free sample to see if we liked it. Great place to eat.

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
