Delicious!

The staff was fast and friendly and the food was awesome. The children's chicken tenders were definitely worth the price of the kids meal. We will definitely return next time we're in the Dells.

We visited on a Monday night, so it wasn't very busy and we were seated right away. The waitstaff was fantastic, making sure my toddler had stuff to keep busy and that we were comfortably situated with the baby. After dinner, I thought I had left my wallet (I didn't, it had fallen on the floor of the car) and... More

I never had a corn so tasteless, the beef over cooked, bbq ribs were not good, I've been in other locations and this time we were unsatisfied with the service, the place was empty and I had to go find the waitress to pay the check to find her sitting in chair playing on her phone. Very disappointed!!!

Stopped here when we first got to town for our weekend get away. Service was excellent and the food was very good. Ordered the sampler for 17.00 and the Big Slab for $25.0 to split between two people. We had enough for dinner and lunch the next day. Would recommend. Good sound reliable food and service.

Used them for a Friday night grooms diner at Devils Lake Park. She was on time,.(a Mgr, can't remember her name, pretty blonde from Romania?) who delivered helped us with table cloths and setting up stuff that wasn't even her job. Food was excellent and a big hit with everyone. Again, we couldn't have asked for better help. Thank you... More

This was my first visit to a Famous Dave's in a very long time and I wasn't that excited. I opted for the soup and salad lunch and the potato soup was very tasty and the fresh garden salad was large and had a lot of fixings on it - so overall I was satisfied with my meal choice. But... More

I had the BBQ chicken and it was moist fall off the bone good. The sauces were not the typical that i'm used to coming from the midwest. I also had the mac n cheese. It has jalapenos in it. yum.

After shopping finding Famous Dave's was amazing. We could have shared one meal as there was so much food. It was great. Filled us up for the ride home.
