The 3 of us went there twice within a week in August. On Sunday August 10 my husband ordered full slab of ribs and I ordered beef brisket. Food was amazing as always at Famous Dave's! We returned on Thursday August 14 and ordered the same dishes and what a waste of money and dinner that was! Ribs were over-spiced... More

We have been to this restaurant before and enjoyed it. This time our dinner was really average. The hostess was not friendly, the waitress acted like she was bored and doing us a favor waiting on us. The food was good. I enjoyed the catfish and my son liked the ribs. They gave us some chips before our food came... More

This place is expensive no matter where it's located but since this is the Dells they figure why not mark them up even more. Once your in, your not walking out right? While I've never had a bad meal at a Famous Dave's, I have had better value elsewhere.

I'm sure there's many but this is a great place to eat. Place was packed and we ate upstairs. Good food, good portions and good service. One of the best places for ribs I've ever been to.

We always have a good time at any famous Dave's we go to and this one was no exception. The service was great, staff was friendly and attentive. Food came out in a timely manour and even thought it was very busy we didn't have to wait long to be seated.

At 3:00 pretty slow but staff spent more time in back rather than serving. Had to ask for someone to take our order, for silverware, asked 3 times including a mgr (who forgot) to turn on ball game on TV. Hate to see what's it like when busy . Good food though.

I have enjoyed Famous Dave's at more than one location and have never been disappointed! We tend to always do one of the "feasts" to enjoy the variety it offers and always end up with a huge doggie bag. Their food is just awesome, especially for a barbeque lover like me and the pricing is affordable. Perfect restaurant choice for... More
