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

After a long day on our feet, it was nice to grab some Famous Daves and head out to our hotel for a much needed meal and some rest. As always, Dave's did not disappoint for value and taste. They made sure to load us up on napkins and condiments!

The 3 of us went there twice within a week in August. On Sunday August 10 my husband ordered full slab of ribs and I ordered beef brisket. Food was amazing as always at Famous Dave's! We returned on Thursday August 14 and ordered the same dishes and what a waste of money and dinner that was! Ribs were over-spiced... More

We have been to this restaurant before and enjoyed it. This time our dinner was really average. The hostess was not friendly, the waitress acted like she was bored and doing us a favor waiting on us. The food was good. I enjoyed the catfish and my son liked the ribs. They gave us some chips before our food came... More
