Great Place for Barbeque!

Loved Famous Dave's! This is a smaller venue than the one in Baraboo, but it's got character and the food is phenomenal. Great sandwich options for lunch. Filled me up for the better part of the day. The kids menu is definitely a great option! Can't beat the Oreo cookie as a small dessert... read 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.

Be cautious of the time your going. Extremely crowded around dinner. Over crowded. Felt like other tables were in our bubble. Prices were a little high but you do get a lot of food. Expect to spend some money and time here.

I am a BBQ lover so this franchise is always a stop for me. The service was OK but was busy as well. The food was well prepared and I love the sauce offerings they have. If you are not sure where to go this place will take care of any appetite.

After staying at the Kalahari, my family ate lunch at Famous Dave's. We sat on the second floor. My daughter enjoyed the "pig hat" menu/coloring sheet she received, and had no complaints about her food! However, we ordered her meal from the kids' menu, and despite it being listed, she was offered no drink, nor did she received the Oreo... More

In the mood for good smoked food. This is the place got the combination which is served on top of a garbage can lid. Got ribs chicken pork and brisket. The corn muffins tasted great.
