This place was way over priced and the food was not of an edible quality. So disappointed because I have done 3 hour road trips to eat at there Manchester NH location!! Go a cross the street to Dallas. Better prices and food for the buck!

I come here EVERY TIME I'm in NYC. Their sticky wings and massive cocktails are the BEST! I've been here quite a few times and NEVER have an issue.

A bit grubby (filthy sticky drinks menus), average service, all a bit half hearted. Food - OK-ish. With so many other options nearby - why put up with this? One of the two restrooms (unisex) was out of soap!

I didnt manage to get there in the evening but had a lunch of BBQ chopped pork sandwich with slaw and fries. Really tasy and didnt break the bank. Would certainly recommend.

In the heart of theatre land Daves offers a great selection of goodies to get you messy! We were there at happy hour and the drink deals are great value. Ribs and burgers are well cooked and tasty. Service was good but not over fast.

We ate here on a Sunday night. Our waitress was not very friendly, they were out of a lot of menu choices, and the food was terrible! If this restaurant wasn't located in Times Square it would never survive! The Mac and Cheese looked like it had been sitting out for days and it was hardly warm when it arrived.... More

I have been to many Famous Dave's all over the country, but this was not a good choice for lunch. Service was slow, ribs were great, but broccoli side was not fresh or hot. I should have tried something more New York, but I went with a known chain and I was surprised by the food and service.
