So when it comes to everyone's birthday they get to choose a restaurant for their birthday dinner. So Famous Dave's was the choice. We arrived for early dinner with a party of 4. There was probably about 4 other tables of people already seated and about 4 employees standing around the hostess stand. We were seated fairly quickly. Our server... More

Nice atmosphere, high ceiling, comfortable booths for families.Several of us ordered the burgers and one ordered the pork on a bun and we all enjoyed our meals. The sweet corn and the fries were served hot and were very tasty. Make sure to ask for your burger well done if you don't like it served pink or on the rare... More

The food is always good and the specialty drinks are amazing. My only complaint is that the place could use a good cleaning. But the food and drinks are definitely good enough to bring me back.

The food but the service is awful slow. Waited to be seated at the front for five minutes and they were very slow. The flow is outstanding though. I would go back because the food is so good

All food was very good we had the ribs and one meat combo. Ribs, Brisket, Mac N Cheese, Potato Salad, Corn Muffin was our meal. The meats were very good, with good smoke flavoring, everyone raved about the mac n cheese cause it had a kick with jalapeno pepper in it, all loved the corn muffins. Delivery was timely. All...

Friendly helpful server. Our first time to a Famous Dave's. Brisket was a little on the dry side. Chicken & ribs were better. Good sauces and cold drinks. It was nice to be able to watch the NFL on the TVs too.

Enjoyed our evening...good value, relaxed dining. Our server was quite pleasant. Food was good, great slaw and great corn bread! We liked the fact that the servings were a reasonable size and not over sized. Felt good leaving lol. Good for families and a fun night out.
