“Confidence Renewed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

I had had several mediocre experiences at Famous Dave's in other locations in the past. Last night I wanted ribs so I tried Famous Dave's again. I am happy to report that this Famous Dave's has their act together. The service was prompt. The food was hot and as advertised. No complaints here.

“Excellent food. Great price!!!!! Helpful staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

We recently visited the dells during automotion 2013. It's is a very busy weekend. However we only waited 15 minutes on a Saturday night with a party of 9. The food has great prices and the service was quick. Our server "famous Greg" was awesome. We highly recommend this place. Their lunch specials are an even better deal.

“Great Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We ate at Famous Dave's a few days ago and loved the food. I really like the chopped pork and the onions strings are great. The waitress was really nice and the service was spot on. We ate at the new place closer to the freeway and enjoyed everything about it.

“Food not good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

The food was not toogood, cold potatoes, cold corn, and items they forgot to bring out with the meal. Also the services was poor, she was new, and we tried to understand but things got worst. The manager, was nice and made things a little better but taking off a little from our bill and apologized. She was nice and we really appreciated, but we had not enjoyed our dinner.
