Good date night option

On a double date and we split the dinner for two between four people. We order two sides in addition and it worked out great. The service was polite and the place was too busy we couldn't get a seat. It wasn't too noisy either. There were many people with families and just a good atmosphere. Good... read more

My husband and I came here for our anniversary. The staff was friendly and helpful especially since we have not been before. They give large portions it is a bit pricy so we will only be visiting for special occasions. Overall we had a great experience.

Food was good and quantity was above average. Enjoyed the feast for two. There was enough for 3 or 4 people. Service was quick and polite. If you want a reasonably price BBQ meal in Layton this is the place to go. Located near many hotels and stores.

We visited your restaurants last night and walked away with the feeling that we will never return again. We were greeted friendly and our first impression of the waitress was a good one. But then after we ordered we waited an unusual amount of time and never heard from the waitress again. Finally we asked for our sons drink and... More

Went with a big group of people, service was good and friendly, food was plentiful and tasty. I had enough to be full that night and lunch for the next 2 days! Good value and great food.

The food is always good at Famous Dave's. The ambience at this one was a little off. I think they were heading for a remodel, so the furnishings seemed kind of tatty and worn. But the food was great!

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
