The food was excellent and good value for money. Best part is its only 2 minutes from the hotel and you don't have to venture out onto the main roads.

No dislike, like it all. The bartender is great and it is very well managed. The service is freindly and fast. Love Famous Daves sauce.

We went toFamous Dave's last weekend with my family, and we had a really nice dinner. Despite the crowded restaurant, we got in without a wait, and that was almost 6:00 PM, so that was great.

Famous Dave's does a really nice job of almost everything on their menu. I normally order the pulled pork or the BBQd salmon. This time, however, I got the full slab of ribs, which were out-of-this-world good. Nice, smokey meat with the dry rub, coated with the BBQ sauce and then slow-grilled in the pit for hours. It was to die for...and I had almost half the rack left over for the next day's lunch, as their portions are huge. My daughter had the BBQd chicken, which she loved, and which she normally doesn't "attack" the way she did here. We also all love the corn muffins, which are also heavenly.

The only thing we could have asked for better on this trip was our table. There were only three of us, but they seated us at this HUGE round table that had a light fixture hanging down at head-level...good to clong your noggin on if you weren't looking.

The service was great, as usual, and the restaurant was its normal vibrant self, with lots going on and everyone having a great time. I will always enjoy going back here.

When we arrived on a busy Saturday PM, we were told it would be a 30-40 minute wait. We decided to chance it. Ten minutes later we were diving into a great dinner! Excellant corn bread!

Food was excellent. Service - one of my worst dining experiences ever. We believe when dining with children, their needs should be met first. Ie) their drinks should come and be refilled first, their meals should come out before the adults. One of our kids waited 10 min before their food came. Another 15 min for a drink refill. REALLY? Our friends were asked AFTER us for food/drinks/refills, etc and of course theirs came first. Same server. Hubby went back another day, better service, but not great.
