Amazing food and service

When we moved here from California we were looking for a good place to eat. This was a great find. We love the food, the atmosphere and the people. They are best known for their ribs my favorite is their steaks. They are always full, expect to wait. The hours are not like other restaurants. Be... read more

When Dennis passed away over a year ago, I expected that the restaurant might close but they have remained open and seem to be as busy as ever,. That's a good thing, The ribs are absolutely wonderful....with fine sides. Dennis when he was still alive and presiding over the restaurant introduced us to Wisconsin potatoes which have Idaho potatoes beat.... More

We had heard from other people that takeout ribs from here were disappointing. That did not fit the impression we have gotten about the food quality as we have eaten here many times but always in the dining area. Well, Oh Dennis! did not disappoint us. We ordered a full rack each along with a baked potato and coleslaw. The... More

Their ribs are phenomenal! If you love ribs, make sure you order the Full slab. You will be yearning for more if you only get the half slab... Service was great, as well. This was my first time and I will for sure be back!

Get there early. Make sure everyone in your party is there as they won't seat you until they are. The ribs and shrimp are to die for. Never had anything else. Most entrées $20+

Very good ribs and fried shrimp as usual but the sauce is different. It's very spicy now to the point I almost couldn't handle it. The shrimp are still delish but smaller. Maybe it was a fluke - will def go again but thought I'd post this.

We now eat there once a month for the last 10 years and the only thing we order is ribs.Only issue is that your eat off plastic plate and... More

My husband and I have gone there a few times and enjoyed everything we ever got. So then we took our family and the experience was just as good. I think the only down side was my bloody Mary that I got. I was disappointed that it wasn't made from scratch.... pre mix ones. Just not good. But we went... More

I have been to O'Dennis's a few times in the past, always enjoyed the food...but in no way impressed with the service!!! Decided to take a friend from out of town here to eat, on a Friday night.... After waiting an hour to be seated, we watched more and more people leaving... By this time, it was 8:45pm, and we... More
