Good Grub

The food at Famous Dave's was very good, but the place that we ate at was located on the main strip where the shops are, and the dinning area was just too cramped.

We went to the one near GWL. The food was just ok and the waiter we had forgot all about us once we placed our orders.

We had barbecue at Famous Dave's. It was good. The service was fine. Everything felt average. Price was probably average for sit down restaurants in the dells. I probably wouldn't go there again, but it was still okay.

Making a Pilgrimage to Famous Dave's was always on our "To-do" list whenever we're in the DELLS. And, teh fact our hotel was within whiff-distance, we could hardly wait. Instead of placing our order(in-store) we grabbed a menu and order from the Hotel- BIG MISTAKE! I could not believe Famous Dave's pulled 1-of the oldest tricks in the books with... More

It's BBQ. GREAT BBQ! Really great BBQ! My family and I loved everything we ate here, and we ate a whole lot! The service was a bit spotty, and the dining room is LOUD! Not a place to go to have a quiet, relaxing meal, but if you want some killer BBQ, Famous Dave's never disappoints and this location has... More

It was our 1st night here in the dells. We drove 8 hours from Michigan and we were starving.My husband ordered Ribs and they were tough like they were cooked really fast. We wait about a 1/2 hour for our food. I got a Barbecue Nacho with the so called Texas Brisket, I am from Texas and it sure wasn't... More

Get the Sampler Platter (Slab of Ribs, WHole Chicken, Brisket or Pulled pork, with Fries, Slaw and Beans)with an extra side of either the Brisket or the Pulled pork. Will set you back about $100 with drinks. Eat to your hearts content that night, secure in the knowledge that you will have delicious leftovers for at least the next 2-3... More

First time here. $$ Had an awesome waiter and was able to get seated right away... it filled up fast. Kids enjoyed their food loved the different BBQ sauce available at each table and even to go ones available in the "lobby". Hours later my husband was still raving about his smoky flavor in his ribs. We will be back.
