Good food at a fair price

This Famous Dave's carries on the tradition of getting a quality meal at a good price. Service was very good and accommodating for large groups. Management of the property does a great job in keeping the place looking good and the staff trained properly

Had a party of 8, were told our wait would be 15-20 minutes. After over 1/2 hour went to convey frustration with many other smaller groups being seated before us. Be forewarned, this Maple Grove facility does NOT support more than one group of 7 or more. So after waiting all the time and having many others seated before us,... More

Amazing baked beans! This was our first experience at this restaurant chain. The waitress was amazing. She helped us out with food choices. For a chain type of restaurant it had really good food. It was nice seeing some spice (heat) being added to food. Plus there was a great selection of BBQ and hot sauces. If you're a first... More

This was just an average FD location. I have been to other FD locations that were better. Food was just average.

Visiting the area we decided we wanted to try some BBQ and one of my friends said that he had Famous Dave in El Paso, Texas, and was good, and this one was only a mile from our hotel. Saw all kinds of trophies on display which made me even more anxious to dig in being from Texas originally and... More

We were there to celebrate mother's day. We arrived earlier than dinner time. Even then we were told the waiting time for a table of 6 would be about 45 mins. Somehow, the queue moved faster than expected and we were seated after about 30 minutes. This is one of our family's favourite restaurants. For such an occasion we were... More

I've been eating at this restaurant off and on for over a decade. Only recently would I consider the service and food good again. I recommend this restaurant for a good, casual, and relatively inexpensive meal.

The food is very good here, service is very quick, waiter/waitress are very nice. Nice atmosphere, not too loud, but not a fine dining experience. Definitely an excellent family restaurant.

We had gone out to eat for Mother's Day. We were told the wait would be about 35 minutes, which we understood. We were the first of the large parties (5 or more) to want seating. After about 30 minutes, two other 5 people parties who came in after us were seated before ours. When we asked about our names... More
