The service is slow, the food is nothing special, and the wait staff is uninformed. We came here one night, not in a huge hurry, but certainly not expecting to wait as long as we did. There were only two people in my party and we were there for almost 90 minutes. I ordered the catfish dinner. I asked the... More

We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. We have always been served hot food that cooked to perfection. We've alway found the staff friendly and the go out of their way to keep you satisfied. I love their salmon that is cooked on a plank of wood. We will return on a regular basis. Les Talbot

Don't let the reviews fool you. This is not great BBQ. It is completely average. I am just too accustomed to Texas BBQ. So this is a spot I will not be back to. The locals seem to love it and the sauce was really good. Just not worth it for me. Service has always been great the 3 times... More

I loved the food here. First time experience and would definitely return. We had the combo so the brisket and ribs were our choice. The corn muffins were delicious and the mash to die for. Service was excellent.

We ate at this restaurant 3 times when we stayed at the hotel next door. We ate different things every time. From their burgers, to their rib tips, to the appetizers, and even dessert, it was great food. And the service was always very pleasant. We ate 2 of the times as take out and the food stayed hot or... More

I took a client here recently and the food was very good and so was the service. I would recommend this restaurant. As it was a business meeting we stayed quite a while and they didn't seem irritated by that as some restaurants do.

We've been to a Famous Dave's before: we know what we can expect as far as menu choices and general food quality. Yet, each restaurant comes with its own unique circumstances. Here, the awful service taints any other points that might be in this place's favor. The place was not that busy, and they seemed to be adequately staffed. We... More
