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 both had the pulled pork with cole slaw, fries etc. Food was very good, service quick and located downtown Dells so you can walk off your dessert!

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

Food was good and large portions. Gave it three stars only because it was nothing special in ambiance and wait staff was not very attentive. Average pricing. We were seated upstairs and when my husband ordered a glass of wine I watched as the waitress went into the small bus room (where they keep glasses, napkins, etc.) and pulled one... More

We always have Famous Daves so food was great as always. Made us sit upstairs which I was not thrilled with. Waiter was a little unattentive.
