Good meal

I enjoyed the ribs and all the sauces. The service was great and we got our meal really fast. We have eaten in other Famous Dave's in the past. This spot is just as good as the others were. Will est there again.

Love eating at Famous Daves when we travel. This Famous Daves was great, very clean fast service and right on the main strip. If you enjoy hot sauces make sure you ask for Wilbur's Revenge Sauce it's not in the table. Rib tips and beef brisket was done perfect and so were the sides. Lots of great beers on tap... More

We went here a couple of weeks ago, after walking for a whille. Its a great place to eat. They play amazing music, food is really good, and service is great! We ate the Big Slab, me and a friend, and we ate it all! The waiter was really nice to us. Cornbread is really good, and ribs are amazing!... More

We were hungry after arriving Wisconsin Dells. We just want to find a place to eat. We stopped in Famous Dave. I guess it was holiday season plus late in the afternoon. There were only very few customers. We had been at other Famous Dave's many times. We decided this time we were going to order individual sandwiches. The waiter... More

We went with friends and tried the sampler platter. It was more than enough for 4 of us to eat. We had good service and good food. Worth it to go.

We have visited this location many times while visiting the Dells. This past trip was no exception. We visited the restaurant on a Friday afternoon around 1pm for a late lunch. The server was great - very friendly and fast service. The food was served very hot, fresh & fast. Great BBQ! Very clean and well maintained compared to other... More

Visited around 8:30 in the evening...I wasn't really hungry but hubby was. I opted to pick off of his plate (ate a few fries) and then we ordered banana pudding. Oh my! I wasn't prepared for the size but at $5.99 I was happy to see we definitely got our money's worth. (See my picture!) Our server did everything but... More

I ordered take out since I wanted to take it back to my motel room. My first clue should have been when there was only one waitress and she was trying to do it all. There was two people working in the kitchen and I had to wait a long time just to order my food. Right before my meal... More
