Fun place to stop when on the road or out shopping.

Like this place when we have a little extra cash. It's now suppose to be a high priced place, but it is someplace we can't afford to go weekly as what is good, their ribs, cost a bit more for their ambiance than one might expect. Still a nice place to go every other month or so.

The service is fast and staff is attentive. One of my favorites is the b-b-q nachos with the brisket.

We ordered the All-American BBQ Feast and Rib Combo for 4 kids (9-20) and 3 adults. Only leftovers were some cole slaw and a couple ribs. Everybody enjoyed their meal.

Went in this afternoon for a late lunch. One table of people and one guy sitting at the bar. I sat at the bar, the bartender was making a drink for the table. I sat there for five minutes and she never even looked at me. But when her friend walked in she said hi to her right away and... More

We were seated almost immediately when we walked through the door. The restaurant is a tad noisy but tolerable. Food was delivered piping hot and drinks were refilled as needed. Service was great!

Famous Dave's use to be a great place to go. It is still pretty good but the food just isn't as good as was a few years ago. I have noticed the trend at other Famous Dave's restaurants too.

I had a Man Sandwich, brisket and sausage, with cole slaw. $10.99. Nothing great. The meat was greasy and kind of chewy. Lots of little pieces that fell out of the bun. The sausage didn't taste like much. The slaw was good. I also had a Pepsi for $2.49. So Lunch plus tip was expensive. The waitress did a fine... More

Seriously, true barbeque snobs like me usually wouldn't take the time on a place like this, but after going here for the second time, thought it was worthy. First off, order a cold one and spend a few minutes looking at all the kitschy stuff all over the place...VERY Minnesota! Second off, it's my brother and sister in law's favorite... More

Had lunch at Famous Daves. Rib tips were cold. Refrigerator cold. Told waitress about it. Took my whole dinner and microwaved the whole thing. Never going back. If you want good BBQ, go to Bayport BBQ

Famous Daves is our favorite BBQ restaurant. Great smoky flavor to the meat if you like that sort of thing. Good variety of sauces from mild to hot. Good "North Woods Cabin" atmosphere and service.
