“Could be great if Staff were better trained and friendly”
Review of Famous Dave's

Famous Dave's
Ranked #221 of 864 Restaurants in Fort Myers
Cuisines: Barbecue

Poor management as usually too many staff on a shift meaning when tips are split the staff is suffering. Manager must not know what is going on with scheduling and training. Food is good but comes out way too slow. Beer is good and cold. Someone needs to infuse personality into the place as a sports bar/ BBQ is supposed to be about friendliness. If they don't change this whole attitude the place will go out of biz which is a shame as could be great.

Besides having excellent bar-b-que, Dave's has fantastic burgers!! Just about the best around. The coleslaw is great too.

I love their St Louis style ribs. My husband likes their chicken and the pulled pork is really good. The beans are also delicious. Will return to this restaurant for sure.

We had a terrific BBQ brisket lunch. Large portions and lots of sides. Our waitress was friendly but she was stretched with a lot of tables so our drinks were emptied part of the time. If you like BBQ, I recommend Famous Dave's!

I am glad this location opened up. Great BBQ - you must try. The meal I ordered was good and gave you an incredible amount of food for the cost. A great value. Kid friendly also.
