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

I liked the food and the ambience of the place. The price of food was cheaper than here in the UK and the tastes of different steaks and meat preparations are so palatable. I liked the corn bread/ muffin, something new to me. Imagining the food we had makes me drool. I wish there is Famous Dave's in the UK.

We went for early dinner with 4 adults and a teenager. We had the brisket meal and wings. The brisket was so so good! They have several BBQ sauces on the table for you to try. It's a lot of fun as well as delicious. Service was pretty poor. Our waitress had to be asked to refill drinks and she... More
