I found the place to be fair. A lot of food was served for decent price. I was Disappointed with the beans which tasted like vinegar. The fries were hot and corn muffin was good. I ate the pulled chicken which was good, but it came with sauce on it, which I would have preferred plain so I could pick... More

I really like this Famous Dave's. Great ambiance, good service, friendly staff. While this is a chain restaurant, this location shines. I eat here about once every couple months and have had several great experiences. I highly recommend and can't wait to go back.

Great food! It is on the pricier side but so worth it for all the food you get! Lots of grilled and barbecue. So worth the date night here. Some alcohol served here not sure on prices though.

Their salmon is the best. It simply melts in your mouth and the BBQ is a great addition. The grilled pineapple spears are so unique and juicy. I'm not a fan of the decor or noise but it's a great place to eat.

My wife have eaten lunch here several times in 2015 and 2016. Food is always good and waitresses friendly. We will continue to eat lunch here in the future. I like the ability to sample all the different sauces.
