“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Excellent food, service, prices and free dessert keep us coming back. Whether it's jammed pack or a light crowd, the service is quick and excellent.

“Over priced for below average food/staff”

The food was very Bland and lacked season and was very chewy and tuff, the drinks were watered down, and our waitress who was a older lady seemed to ignore us,and got our order wrong twice

“Lots of food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

it's ok, meat has a "gas" after taste, it's too bad, cause otherwise it would be great. The sides are pretty good, good comfort food.

“uninspired”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

we visited famous dave's last night, we had been to smokin dave's in colorado and thought they be similar. but in name only were they the same, the appetizer came out about the same time as our meal, and they were not busy yet. my pulled put sandwich was more bread than pork and the 2 lonely ribs on my plate were dry and over cooked. the desert was called a brownie, but was more cake like and dry, if it were not for the 2 small scoops of ice cream and some whipped cream, you would have needed a half gallon of milk to get it down.
They had a very limited draft beer selection.
on a positive note the service was good and the waiter was attentive to our needs.
WOULD NOT rush back

“reliable and always great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

We eat at Famous Daves in NY at least once a month. So when we go on the road we count on Dave's......The food is always deliciuos and the menu will make every person in your group happy, there is always something for everyone. The Cajun Style atmoshere is fun and comfortable. You can dress well or show up right off your boat, they never make you feel out of place!! The wait staff was friendly and we were served quickly and correctly.
