It was our first time to Famous Dave BBQ - the food was very good and the service was great. I was worried because my son can't have meat, pork, or chicken - they did have a fish or vegetable option for him. Everyone left happy.

We visited Famous Dave's a couple of years ago and we were very happy about going there again when we planned our trip. We were not disappointed in the least. Our server Ericka,was super friendly and efficient. The manager bought out some wings for us to sample. We sat on the patio as it was a very gorgeous evening. Our... More

After leaving IHOP for lack of service we came to Famous Daves. The greeter was a very friendly young man. Our server was ok. And the food was fine.

Famous Dave's is a chain so you know what to expect no matter which one you go to. Food was good, served quickly and staff was attentive. Wish they would bring back the cooked sliced apples.

What an awesome experience... With short notice, they secured an area for our softball team and parents. Food was great and the service was phenomenal. From the smallest of requests to the large orders, the staff delivered top rated service. Our team actually yelled "Outstanding" just before leaving... We will return!
