Had to go twice during our visit since we can't find many Famous Dave's any more. Love the atmosphere, corn muffins and burnt ends. Wait staff is always great, clean restaurant and bathrooms and reasonably priced.

We decided to have a barbecue night and hadn't tried Famous Daves in awhile. They didn't disappoint. We had brisket and wings. Both were top notch. Seating in the bar was faster and the service was top notch. We'll be going back.
