Coming into Rochester hungry and late and Dave's being next to our hotel, we decided to give this place a try. We looked in vain for something healthy on the menu, but the closest we could come was catfish fingers with a side of brocolli (served very salty). The menu is full of food like ribs and briskets, all with... More

I came here with my high school aged daughter. This is the first Dave's I have been to with regular table service, usually you just put your numbered pig on the table and someone brings the food. Well, that was fine anyway. Our waitress was superb, very friendly and really made us feel like we were in the south, which... More

We've eaten here more than once, on business to Rochester. Though they are seemingly always busy, the service is very friendly, and the food is really good. We share the platter sampler for two, and it has all the goodies for a fine feast, with leftovers to take with you. We especially like brisket -- it's awesome.

We have eaten at Famous Dave's near our hometown and it was so awful we never went back but recently had Famous Dave's at the Mall of America and thought Wow this is awesome and figured it was awesome because it was a flagship store. But we travel to Rochester to go to the Mayo Clinic and have eaten lots... More

We have been up for medical care at the Mayo a number of times. We always make sure to eat here during our visit. The food is excellent every time!! The barbecue, ribs, and barbecue nachos are favorites. If you are ever in Rochester, enjoy a meal here!!
