This was my first time to eat at Famous Dave's. I had received plenty of recommendations from friends and so while in Clarksville, IN I made sure I gave it a try. The ambience of the restaurant was exactly what one would expect from a southern BBQ restaurant. It was better than they had raved about! The service was fantastic!... More

Came here on 4th of July with a group on 6. Wait wasn't too long. After we got seated it took 3 different people to get our drinks. Not bar drinks either, just tea & waters. 40 min to get our food delivered. Lastly we waited 30 min to get our bill! No apologizes just rude service. Definitely terrible.

Our whole family enjoyed their meal from ribs to catfish. They offered something for everyone. If you like BBQ this is the place for you.

The casual atmosphere at Famous Dave's is good and the wait staff wears shirts with catchy slogans on them, so it's fun, but one word sums up the food for me - mediocre. Especially considering there is a top-notch, award-winning BBQ joint about a mile away. Famous Dave's strikes me as being a chain store - the food fits that... More

This is one of our go-to stops when we are in the area. This time we placed a to-go order and took it back to the hotel. The food was hot and delicious as always. When I placed the order, I had forgotten to make a substitution. They gladly make it for me once I got there to pick up.... More

All four of our party really enjoyed our lunch today. We all ordered different meals, and it was yummy! I had Brisket & Rib Tips, hubby had feast for 1, one friend had ribs, and the other brisket. The macaroni with jalapenos was fantastic, coleslaw great, corn on cob, beans, potato salad all good. Cornbread too sweet for our taste,... More

My hubby, kiddos, & I ate here Saturday afternoon and we really liked the food. Here's my summary: FOOD:They have the BEST catfish ever! The corn muffins, corn on the cob, french fries, burnt ends, & ribs were all very good. My only 2 food complaints were: the mac n cheese had corn in it...lots of corn...and the mashed potatoes...
