I used to be so exited to come to Famous Daves. I live in North Carolina and we don't have one there, so every time i come down to Wisconsin i insist on coming here. It has been my favorite place to eat but this year all of my ribs were pure fat, my french fries were cold, dry, and... More

The ambiance is great and the food is really good. This visit was the only visit we ever had to send anything back. My daughter ordered ribs and they were all fat. We complained to our really nice waitress and 5 minutes later the manager came by with a new plate of ribs for her. Good food, great service and... More

We came in hungry and left stuffed times two. The waitress was quick and friendly. She did forget one item that was ordered and lied about it by saying we had to wait until new soup was cooked, even though the next table got theirs. But regardless, the food was excellent and everything was perfect, (except for the minor forgotten... More

I have tried a few of Famous Dave's around the USA and most were pretty good to average. But this one in the Dell's was run a little different. The food did not taste like other other Famous Dave. The service was fair but by no means great. I think it may of been the time of year I ate... More

I have always wanted to try this place as I love their barbeque sauce. We ordered the Burnt Ends appetizer as this is always our favorite part of the ribs at home. These were not good. For the price it was a small portion, maybe 9 pieces the size of half dollars. The meat had a HEAVILY smoked flavor. A... More

The food is great at this chain, but the prices, while not ridiculous are not family friendly. We had chicken and ribs and all was good. The variety of sauces make it fun.

We went on a Monday evening not to crowded. They sat us at a table and I felt a draft and ask to be moved and they did so with no problem. The food was great and the service was great also. The kids menu was good too. Didn't have to wait long for the food to come.

My wife and young boys and I came to the dells for a weekend getaway. I love famous Dave's from where we live and we thought this one was cool being down town. We stood outside waiting for a table for 15 mins while the three hostess agreed over where they could seat us. They then agreed about how they... More
