“Crowded but nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Tables are a little close together, but that's no doubt due to the overhead of being in that center. Food was good, service was great and if you want to get a more open feeling when dining eat outside on the patio.

“Family visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

The smell of smoky meat outside is enticing. But the place is a bit old and tired inside. Service was good, and he described each accompanying sauce for us, as it seems to be what there famous for too. Ribs where good but a bit too much like fast food for me! Much nicer restaurants around.

“This Famous Dave's is WONDERFUL!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

When it comes to Famous Dave's they are all different...This one is really, really good! From the start our waitress Stacy was on top of all of our needs. The food was fresh, fast and HOT. If you are in the area I recommend this restaaurant for the whole family. There were 2 birthday parties going on the the whole place joined in singing HAPPY BIRTHDAY. I also recommend buying their pickles....YUMMM. Just like my Grandma Ippen use to make.
