After shopping finding Famous Dave's was amazing. We could have shared one meal as there was so much food. It was great. Filled us up for the ride home.

We got the family feast to - go and all of it was wonderful. Corn is not the same as Iowa fresh sweet corn but kids still chowed it down. All the meat had great flavor and was so tender. I've had Famous Daves elsewhere before but this seemed by far the best and I wish I could get it... More

We ordered some rib ends and chicken to go. The rib ends were horrible. We do not recommend them. I couldn't even eat them. The chicken was good although the flavor hd a little too much of the fake smoke taste. We would try the place again but order differently.

We ate at the Lake Delton Location in October and were disappointed after eating Ribs in Memphis,Tenn they were tough and chewey. The Price was on the high side for what you get, there are other places that offer ribs that are better in quality and price. They don't come close to Rib places in Memphis or St. Louis.

The place is so beautifully decorated -- all those great old signs in there. And the pulled chicken is outstanding! Only have Wilbur's Revenge hot sauce if you like the hottest-hottest sauce.

The food at famous daves was overpriced for the quality of the food we received. There were 4 adults in our party and all of our BBQ was dry. It was my first time ever eating at Famous Daves and will probably be my last.

Garbage can lid was outstanding. Ribs and brisket were the best I've ever had from a Famous Daves. Outstanding service, very quick turnaround.

My family and I stopped in to grab some lunch and were very disappointed. Service was prompt, and somewhat attentive. Unfortunately my husbands potato soup was the only edible food we received. I had st loius style ribs ( very fatty and very dry), corn on the cob (was overcooked, unbuttered), mashed potatos, and a side of grilled pineapple (... More

Had lunch at the location in town and wasn't as good as we hoped it would be. Had several selections of barbeque - ribs, pork, chicken and brisket and everything was cooked well but nothing stood out. Service was slow and overall we were underwhelmed.

After a pleasant boat ride down the Wisconsin River, we decided we better find a place to eat. Being it was after Labor Day, not a lot of places keep their doors open for the small, wandering groups that are still out vacationing. We found that was not the case here! We were met promptly at the door and escorted... More
