Service Was Awesome And The Food Was Very Good.

My husband and I came in here on 7-4-15, to celebrate the 4th of July. Service was outstanding and the food was pretty tasty. We ordered the full rack of baby back ribs, beans and cole slaw with a side caesar salad. Everything came out hot, fresh and tasty. The corn rolls are amazing!!!! Our meal... read more

Wasn't aware this was a chain, but the reviews were so good, decided this is where we would have dinner. We stopped in around 5pm and there was no waiting and we were seated immediately. The waitress immediately took our drink order and was back to take our order. The restaurant was clean and inviting. The food was terrific! I... More

Excellent food is served promptly by friendly waitresses in a casual environment. We try to avoid "chains" while traveling, but we love Famous Dave's and no longer have one in our hometown.

Great meal! We were there on a Tuesday night and had the Super Tuesday promo meal. It was huge and fed 3 of us completely. We were there at 8 p.m. and they must have been slammed earlier as they ran out of chicken. Their silverware was being brought straight from the dishwasher to the tables. Our server JD did... More

Ribs were too spicy to eat. Staff was very helpful and didn't charge for the ribs. The menu should be a little more clear on how spicy some of the food is.

Both had baby back ribs, very yummy (although not as good as gone smoked but whose is) several sauces very good. Mac and cheese was spicy with jalapeños and was extra yummy. Pineapple steaks were perfect our waiter was knowledgable of menu and sauces. And very friendly, really enjoyed our meal

Our introduction to this Famous Dave's location was having to wait for a table even though half of the restaurant was empty. It was like they didn't have enough staff to accommodate the entire facility. So after about 10 minutes we were seated in the bar area. Our server was nice enough, but she was underage so she couldn't answer... More

The bartender was outstanding, he hooked us up with to go food, which was amazing. We had the caramelized brisket tips for an appetizer while sitting at the bar, they are wonderful. To go, we had the feast for two. Very good food for the price!

My daughter and I tried this place and came away happy. She had a kid's meal (ribs) and enjoyed the taste of the ribs. I had a bit more, the feast for one, and really enjoyed the brisket and ribs. The chicken was less good--it actually seemed a bit undercooked--but overall quite a plate of food that I didn't come... More
