We love stopping at Famous Dave's to eat in the afternoon after a morning of jet skiing on Lake Erie. The docking is free for a jet-ski and they wonderful outdoor seating. The food is always great, my favorite being the Famous Dave's salad with shredded beef. We have not ever went by car, so not sure about the Cedar... More

Eat there while at cedar point. The food was great and they came to the table to ask if the first time there. If it is they will bring to the table a taste of all of the different BBQ Sauces that they have and the difference in them. All the sauces are on the tables labeled. They give you... More

Going to Cedar Point and love BBQ, go to Famous Dave's! If you're there on a busy day, call them and see if you can reserve seats for your party. It is expensive but it's worth it. They have different sauces for your fries, wings, burgers, chicken, and much more. There is two other sauces they don't put out because... More

It is nice to have a place to relax outside of the park, and to have a nice view of the Marina and water. However, charging 7.99 for a loaded potato (no meat, just cheese and sour cream), and 24.99 for a meat combo platter, with 4 ribs and 4 thin slices of brisqit is not worth it. The meat... More

We stayed at Cedar Point resorts for 3 nights over Labor Day weekend. We generally eat dinner at either TGI Friday's, or Chickie and Petes (formerly the Gameday Grille). We happened to be near the marina entrance after riding the blue streak, and decided to check out Famous Daves. This restaurant is located in the marina, basically on a pier/boat... More

asking no fewer than three different managers to check to be sure the busers to check on it between customers. I have had cold food served and partially cooked chicken. When I had them cater for a large group ($2000), they were over 30 min late, 15 min after guests had been seated. There is a brand new McKenzie's Resturant... More

Been going to Famous Dave's at Cedar point nearly every time since 2008 and every time it has been well worth it. This time in October 2014 really stood out. The food was probably the best cooked I have ever had at a Famous Dave's. Service was extremely fast probably only waited 3 or 4 minutes for food after ordering... More

We're just back from a Halloweekend at Cedar Point and had dinner at Famous Dave's. The food was very good but the place was packed so our wait on a Saturday evening was 1 1/4 hr.
