Good Food and Good Service

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.

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
