Went with 4 kids. Chose cuz it had root beer floats and I thought the kids would like the food. It was ok. The menu looked like many iterations of the exact same thing... one type of meat or another with BBQ flavoring. Everything was extremely salty. Waitress didn't ask how I wanted my burger cooked but it wound up... More

I was disappointed in this "Famous Dave's". I had bragged at how great Famous Daves was based on the Madison restaurant. No pig noses or bibs here (for one thing) which always adds to the experience. The ribs were great! The service was lacking (and they weren't even busy at lunchtime).

Famous Dave's restaurants never disappoint from the service to the wonderful barbecue. Service was fast and waiter was great. Love their BBQ comb meals are the way to go so you can sample a few different things.

I happened to be in the Dells for a meeting and took my Wife and Daughter in order to make a one day getaway out of the trip. After my meeting, we hit downtown Dells looking for a place to eat. On the way, we checked the navigation system for Restaurants and found several, but every one we drove up... More

My husband and I had dinner here on Saturday. It was very busy but is a large place and we were seated immediately. Waitress was very promt and efficient. It took a while to get our food but it was a fun wait. The staff kept my husband's coffee cup filled which made him very happy, as it was already... More

Every time we come to the dells, we eat here. It's one of those places where no matter what you order from the menu, you know you are going to be full and happy after. The cornbread is a great compliment to the tray full of barbeque sauces they have ready for you to try, each one is great or... More

We had a group of 11 and it was busy! Super fast and accurate service. Friendliness from all staff. Food was atypical of Famous Daves...never been a big fan but went with the group.

Me and family visited the one in downtown Wisconsin Dells we had the American Family Feast which was about 76$ dollars. It fed 3 adults and 1 child. It was so much food and it was AMAZING. It was worth every penny. We did not get any drinks. The server was very nice as well. Overall it was a wonderful... More
