I always eat at a Famous Dave's when I am somewhere there is one. The one in Stapleton (Denver) was so good I ate there three nights in a row. For the one in Rapid City the service was excellent, the staff friendly and helpful but as one reviewer said below the BBQ (brisket) was dry. I will still seek... More

We walked into the place at about 845pm asked if we could sit on bar side. Hostess said yes seat yourself. There were only 4 other tables filled in the place and I saw one table being helped by two different servers but we were not acknowledged even with eye contact. After about 10 minutes we saw a waitress seat... More

Love barbeque! We did the feast for 1 and it fed us both! We have found that most restaurants' portion sizes are generous enough that 1 meal makes 2 "human-sized" meals!

Had a run around with an off night coupon, national push promotion that should have been any easy customer friendly moment that was more work than should have been.

We had just arrived in Rapid City to visit the Black Hills and Mt. Rushmore. We needed someplace to eat that was not far from the hotel. Found Famous Dave's and went relatively early on a Thursday night. We were seated immediately and waitress was very attentive and helpful with the menu. We wanted to eat light and didn't really...

We come here often as we love the food! It's always great, my kids love it here! Service is usually good, but I have had a couple times where our server never came, he apologized saying he didn't know it was his table. Since it's happened more then once they probably need a better means of communication between the hosts... More
