We ate here while staying at one of the Cedar Point hotels, the food was great and service was friendly. Would eat here again.

My first time at this establishment. Came just before closing but still had fantastic service & food! Everything was delicious, including the potato salad & cornbread which we all know, everybody can't make! I soooo wish they had one of these in Atlanta! I'd be big as a side of pig! But OMG, the gnats! Lordy! We had to fight... More

Fun. Great sassy server named Debbie. Went for dinner after two long days at Cedar Point. Longing for sit down restaurant with silverware and glasses. Dave's provided that and more. Food good. Service attentive and timely. Short 5 min walk from park near Valravn entrance. So much better than options in park. Strongly recommend.

Always good food! We like to play with all the sauces. The only downside to this location is the $$$$$ price! You pay amusement park prices! We try to save money by ordering water to drink and sharing the family "trash can lid". Great service!

Very good food but pricy. Service was OK. Atmosphere was noisy. Took a shuttle from our hotel (Free) to get there.

Around dinner time we decided to stop by Famous Daves for first time to take small break from cedar point. It was probably our best meal near cedar point since most food inside the park is your typical amusement park food. The St Louis Ribs were great and the service was quick. We also had dessert which was average ,... More

Ribs are awesome. Great place to have a paleo lunch or dinner. Get the ribs naked and you can choose to experiment with the different sauces (or not). Water view is lovely. Fantastic lunch at Cedar Point.

Very good food. If you leave hungry it ain't no body's fault but your own! Great service and great location. I wish they would have had a place to buy their products in the restaurant though.
