Went to Dave's for lunch. It was ok. Nothing great.

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... read 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.

My wife and I came for a Saturday night dinner. While we've also had good luck here, tonight's meal was exceptional. We both had the St. Louis Ribs and they were *wonderful*. Just done perfectly. For sides we both had the Wilbur beans. For the 2nd side, my wife has the coleslaw while I had the fries. Once again, really... More

I wrote an earlier review of Famous Dave's expressing my disappointment in their service and food from a previous visit. We have since visited the same Famous Dave's and had a very different experience. My husband and I returned without our children in February and had a delightful dinner. When we were seated I shared with our waitress that our... More

We've eaten at Famous Dave's in Stillwater, MN and Hayward, WI countless times and to be fair, perhaps I should have written a review after a better experience. Our family (and three extra extended family members, for a total of eight) dined at Famous Dave's last night. The restaurant was quiet, only a few other parties were seated. Even so,... More

I love Famous Daves BBQ! My favorite item on the menu is the beef brisket, it is very flavorful and melts in your mouth :) the prices here are good for a filling meal. Typically I get 2 meats, 2 sides and corn bread for about $15. The drinks are free refills and they have a full bar for adult... More

I am curious if all Famous Daves are the same. The staff here are nice, but the food looks messy and nothing is as it is depicted in their ads. The rib tips are chunks of very fatty and oily pork. Maybe we will try another Famous Daves and compare.

How do you beat Famous Dave's? Great food, menu and atmosphere. I love the corn muffins. Pulled pork is hard to beat. Never pass up an opportunity to go to Famous Dave's
