Catering

Famous Dave's catered an office luncheon a couple weeks ago, and it was delivered on time and hot (which is very important). Everyone enjoyed the food (especially the brisket).

I have gone to this location in Cool Springs three times to entertain clients that requested BBQ and it was convenient. This is my last trip and I can never recommend this location again. ,,,,, We sat on the patio and for some reason they would keep turning the fans off and acted aggravated when we requested them on.

If you are looking for BBQ, the Nashville area has much better options, including Jack's BBQ and Memphis-based Corky's.  Famous Dave's could be great, but the service was lacking.  Dirty fingerprints on the glass of the front door and a waiter who did the minimum possible are likely reasons why the restaurant wasn't too busy during mealtime.  The waiter's explanation...

We've been to Famous Dave's several times and have always enjoyed the meal. The food is good and the portions more than ample. If you have a group, there is a front room that has a private table.

Very limited selection of beer. My ribs were dry wifes brisket was dry too. Food tasted ok good smoke flavor just dryed out. Service was real slow waitress seemed aloof. The free cornbread muffins were pretty good though.

made a stop over on our way to Florida & decided to get BBQ. after all we were in TN. We ate at Famous Dave's & it was delicious. We not only loved the BBQ, but the sides were great too. The service was friendly & helpful as well.

Southern food served with southern hospitality. Enough food to feed an army with each serving. Super delicious. Service was great, quick, helpful and appreciated.

This was our first time at Famous Dave's, but I guarantee it will not be our last! Did some research on BBQ places and decided on FD's. From the moment we set foot in the place we were impressed. Decor, even down to the table decorations were impressive. Our server spent time going over the menu with us and was... More
