Stayed at Stoney Creek Inn and Famous Dave's is right around the corner. My husband and I ate there for lunch. Food was excellent. Service wonderful. If you want a great BBQ and great atmosphere you have to eat here.

“Good, busy night.”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

We were a group of 8 that walked over from our hotel. The restaurant was very busy. We were seated upstairs. There was a wedding party there also, which kept the servers running. The service was slow, but pleasant. We ordered an appetizer, which we didn't get. We told the waitress, she brought it anyway at no charge. We ordered the "garbage" can lid dinner. It was excellent, except the ribs were quite tough this time, we were not able to eat them. We did clean up the rest of it, though! Overall, average to good experience at Famous Daves, we would eat there again.

“Great meal for big group”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Walked over to the restaurant from our hotel.. We wanted to watch the end of a football game so they made an area in the bar for us so all 7 of us could sit together. Waitress was great, always on top of things, very friendly and provided great service. The food as usual at a Dave's was outstanding and the atmosphere is great... Great location great food great service. You can't ask for more than that

“Good BBQ great location.”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

For a franchise operation this is very good BBQ at decent prices. I have been to several Famous Daves throughout the midwest and I would say this is right at the top of the list. Good service, free parking and have always had good food and usually end up taking some home. Tastes just as good the next day!

“Great Atmosphere, Great Food”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Famous Dave's is a BBQ joint with sort of a 50's gasoline/service station decor that demands to entertain you while you wait for your meal and while you eat it. The atmosphere is half the reason to go; the other half is the food, which is simply great BBQ, with a few other items available if BBQ does not do it for you. My wife and I had a wonderful meal that included soup, salad, and a main course with pulled pork. It was ALL good!
