We went on a Monday evening not to crowded. They sat us at a table and I felt a draft and ask to be moved and they did so with no problem. The food was great and the service was great also. The kids menu was good too. Didn't have to wait long for the food to come.

My wife and young boys and I came to the dells for a weekend getaway. I love famous Dave's from where we live and we thought this one was cool being down town. We stood outside waiting for a table for 15 mins while the three hostess agreed over where they could seat us. They then agreed about how they thought the waiters would be mad because they just sat some one else and how they couldn't ask another because he was having a bad day. There was easily 7 to 10 tables open and we didn't understand why we couldn't even just get in and they made us feel like we were a huge burden to them. We ended up just walking away and eating elsewhere

We were in Wisconsin Dells over the Memorial Weekend and so most eating-places were full. However, we managed to get a really good table for two at Famous Dave's and were served by Marcela who made us feel very welcome. We ordered a delicious Georgia Pork which was also very filling. The only issue was that my partner did not get his cornbread muffin as we were told they were still making them and by the time they were ready he had eaten most of his meal so the waitress cordially offered a free ice-cream dessert to compensate for the lack of cornbread muffin. Perhaps the place could do with more servers although Marcela was doing an excellent job serving multiple tables and most of them with large groups. This Famous Dave's at Wisconsin Dells has a great ambience and is ideally situated right on the "strip". We will definitely be going back again the next time we are in Wisconsin Dells.

If you want ribs DO Not go here. Only reason we went there was because Paul Bunyons was closed. This meal was worst I have had in years. Got so sick I thought about going to ER. Not sure where they get their ribs from but they are terrible. The prices are outrageous. With tip it was almost $50 for 2 people on this awful meal. Take my word for it. If you want ribs go to Paul Bunyons. They are open for ribs Mon, Wed and Sat. Not sure why they were closed yesterday. Also they are cheaper and all you can eat.
