“Good value for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

I went during lunch and picked 2 choices of meat and a side with cornbread for $9.99, which is really good considering how much meat I got. I would definitely go back.

“Decent Chain BBQ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Went here to avoid the wait at Buffalo Bill's. It's just like any other Famous Dave's with ok BBQ, though the service here was quick and they have a few local beers.

“Higher priced than other Famous Dave's?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We ate dinner here during our recent trip to the Dells. The food was fine (typical Famous Dave's), and the service was good as well. The prices seemed higher than at other Famous Dave's, which is why I'm ranking it a bit lower. It's my pet peeve when chain restaurants jack up their prices due to a touristy location.

We ate around 5:00, and it wasn't busy yet at all.

“Fabulous Daves!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We ate at the downtown location and it was the best meal we had in the Dells. Our 10 year old grandson ate so much he almost made himself sick, and then wanted to go back the next night!

Awesome ribs!! Awesome everything actually - will definitely return the next time we are in the Dells.

“Sunday Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

There are a dizzying array of food choices in this tourist area, however, I give Dave's two thumbs up! Though it is a bit pricey, the quality of the food and service makes this a go-to spot for me when I am in the Dells.
