This is twice that I had a salad that tasted rotten and could not eat it, I always get the side salad everywhere I go..... simply don't here! I ordered the beef rib platter, dry burnt and mostly fat, way disappointed for a $35 dinner. Options: go anywhere else!

Although we went right at shift change and it took them a while to get to us, it was worth the wait.

I went here for dinner last night and got the feast for one. It was delicious and speedy! The staff was friendly and attentive and I really appreciated it. The food was a bit on the high side but it was well worth it in my opinion. I would go again!

In the past, always had wonderful food and service at Famous Dave's.... however, I'm not sure if it was just the last couple of times, new cooks, management, or what??? , but our experiences were quite different. The hamburger meat in the children meals were "soaked" in grease; used so much of the roll of paper trying to blot grease... More

My family and I love going to Famous Dave's for lunch or dinner. Be prepared to bring a big appetite, because portions are very generous, I always walk out with my "Doggie bag". The atmosphere reminds me of and makes me feel like I am somewhere in Tennessee or Kentucky, the music and decor makes you for forget you are... More

I took my daughter and son in law there for dinner and the service was excellent. The waitress heard that I collect magnets and tried to get one for me. The food as always was very good.

The food was very tasty and good size portions in a plate. It is a perfect place to take the family or kids. The waiters and host were friendly. I was surprised how fast the food came out. Plenty of left overs to take home for the next day!
