“Dependable good quality meal”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

The night we drove to the dells we ate at Famous Daves since we knew what to expect. The meal didn't disappoint. The servers were very busy so the service was a tad slow but everyone apoligized. If you've ever been to Famous Daves somewhere else this place won't disappoint.

“BBQ is Always Good!”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Like the one closer to Kalahara.The portions seem better.The one downtown is good too.But the portions seem smaller.Always good.Try the bbq nachos for an appatizer.The 2 person nachos are big enough for 2 adults and 2 kids.Everything is on the menu is good for the value.

“yum”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

The Dells area has two Famous Dave's and both are great. The downtown location is a little older and smaller but serves the same great food. I waited less than 5 minutes for my food at my most recent visit. A bit pricey but worth it.

“It was alright!”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Not nearly as good as in TN. No specials but that is probably because it is a resort area. That was a big disappointment when we took the family there.

“Consistently Good”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

For a chain, this one's a keeper. Ribs, corn, and all the fixins and good portions. Nice for families with kids.
