Great food and service

We were very hungry and all the restaurants in the Dells had long waiting lines except this place. Someone used their head when they designed it and made it very large with two floors. We were promptly seated and served. I tried the lemon chicken and it was fantastic. Would very much like to try it... read more

Having lived in Austin, Texas for a few years I am perhaps pretty spoiled to really top notch BBQ. If however you just got to have a BBQ fix and live in the middle of Wisconsin, Famous Dave's will do in a pinch. The portions were hearty and the flavor OK - The burnt ends however are not the real... More

They give you so much food, that we always order the Feast for 2 and it feeds the four of us. (Two adults and two 12 year old boys). That may change in the years to come but for now, we still have a few items left over after a meal here. Lots of different BBQ sauces the try. We... More

We loved the BBQ and the atmosphere was fun. We bought some extra BBQ sauce for home because it was so good! Loved being able to share with the entire family!

We thought you couldn't go wrong with Famous Dave's. Wrong! Portions were small and the the meat seemed like it had been sitting around awhile. It is a small restaurant so it's very crowded and hard to find a room for a slightly larger group of people.

We are frequent guests of Famous Daves and are never disappointed. Our waitress was great. Food was quick and delicious. The décor is fun to look at also.

We ate at Famous Dave's in the Dells last night. First time I had been here and the food was delicious. Our waiter was very friendly. I had the cedar plank salmon with red skin mashed potatoes and mac and cheese. The only thing negative I can say is that the portions were kind of small for what we paid.... More

We've been before, but not this Dells downtown location. The food was just as good as we've come to expect. They did run out of Merlot, but had other options.

Nice happy and friendly staff, even at the end of the night! We just want a quick bite at the end of a busy fun day and even at the end of their night we were greeted with friendly staff and our food was served good and hot! Never been to the downtown location before but we definitely will be... More
