We love Famous Dave's in our family, but we didn't like how this restaurant was set up. You order your food cafeteria style, no real wait staff.

I went for lunch and was behind pleased. The food was hot, fresh and arrived quickly. I ordered wings, salad and that yummy corn muffin that they cooked to perfection. I didn't have room for dessert, but I was tempted!

Slow service, but good food. Restaurant was clean, menu was standard fare with a few fish selections. Portions were large and did not have room for desert.

I love any chance to dine at Famous Dave's, so when visiting Minnesota recently we got the opportunity to have dinner here. My friends and I have long dined at various location Famous Dave's and the consistent quality is always great. This location lived up to that tradition of excellent food and atmosphere. The rich, smoky flavor of their meaty... More

Just stopped in, did not know of this chain of restaurants. But will keep a look out for. The ribs are cooked perfect. The burger was fantastic, great barbeque flavor. The restaurant is simple, clean and comfortable. You feel like you are out back at barbeque.

Famous dave's is NEVER a disappointment. Portions are large enough to enjoy them a '2nd day'. Just wish my favorite desert, bread pudding, ('gold standard for anyone else's) wasn't so expensive....how to choose? ribs?? vs bread pudding'?? then I saw that the portion size was smaller than I remembered, so glad I didn't order it

A friend of mine and I had lunch at Famous Dave's-Roseville. We arrived at 1100 hrs and placed our order at the counter attended by some very friendly people. I ordered the Rib N Rib combo and my friend had the country style chicken. Orders were served at the table by a very friendly server followed by several visits thereafter... More

I always get their beef brisket, so I can't comment on other items, though people I go with always seem to like what they order. I love the beef brisket and rich and sassy sauce. Good baked beans, typical potato salad, but good. Wait staff is nice, though they do want to tell you the "Famous Dave story" or "have... More
