My friends and I ate at Famous Dave's in Times Square on our first day in NY. There were 6 in our party and we did get seated right away (the only positive in the experience).
First off, it took forever for our waiter to finally come over and get our drink order. Then, when he did come, he took two of our drink orders and walked away without taking the other 4 orders. The, when he came back we figured we better order our appetizers before he walked off again. Took one of our appetizer orders and walked off again. I think the issue was, he told us he was deaf in his left ear which made it difficult of him to hear, but I'm not sure what the walking off in the middle of the orders had to do with that.
When we got our acutal meals, the food was cold, but we were so hungry from traveling all day, we ate it. This was the worst Famous Dave's experience ever. Don't let the quick seating fool you, this place was empty for a reason!!
