The food at this place was delicious and fulfilling! Top notch, the service was a little slow but it wasn't busy in the place when we first arrived, but it did pick up some while we were sitting in, definitely two thumbs up for the food

My husband ordered the smoked pork sandwich and it was very dried out. I got the"burger" which was supposed to be beef brisket but was just a hamburger with onion rings. Was good but not what I thought I was getting. Sides just okay

We just stopped here before and the food has always been good and the ribs were great. This time I was not impressed, the ribs were tough and overly spiced (think hot). The side dishes were still very good ( with the exception of the broccoli seemed overcooked) especially the corn bread muffins.

At first we were sure our experience was going to be negative -- we were seated right next to a birthday party of literally at least forty people, and thus could barely hear each other talk. And since he/she was attending to the party table, we didn't get any service for at least fifteen minutes. My spouse politely asked if... More

Loaded baked potato soup was fantastic. Service was attentive and friendly. Kids. Menu is also good. We went right after the lunch crowd ended, so it was not super crowded

We dined in on a Saturday night. Our waiter was training a new employee both servers were friendly and well informed. This was the best food I've ever had at a Famous Daves and I've eaten at a few different ones. The other one in the dells located by the hotels, is not as good as this one. This was... More

Great food and good service. We try to go when there isn't a lunch or dinner rush;service will go faster! Look for a coupon in one of the Dells many magazines, which are usually found in the entry way.

I usually don't expect much at a chain bbq restaurant. This was excellent. The service was good the bbq was excellent. I have enjoyed bbq at restaurants around the country and this has to rank among the best. We had 11 people with us and everyone enjoyed their food.
