Rode the Harley to Annapolis to get some cigars. After smoking one in the lounge we went for lunch at Famous Dave's. I've dined at other Famous Daves, but they don't compare to the service and time it takes to get your food. The chow is excellent and the wait staff are outstanding. Highly recommended.

This place is a joke. Order the two meat entrée. The amount of meat was small - not even noticeable on a plain white piece of bread. The meat was dry - probably day old or longer.The sides we also in super small containers. The good thing was the selection of draft beers. Will not return.

We went to Famous Dave's for a late lunch/early dinner. We were met by the manager who held the door and welcomed us. We were seated in a nice quiet section. We ordered the Onion Strings as an appetizer. They were a little greasy, but we ate them anyway because they were so yummy. The remoulade sauce was a nice... More

Stopped by Famous Dave's in Annapolis for lunch on a Saturday and I am glad we did! Upon entering the establishment we observed the Hostess and servers were wearing a casual uniform embroidered the FAMOUS DAVE'S on the chest. All the staff we observed were wearing name tags. We were immediately pleasantly greeted by a hostess who allowed Holly, our... More

I ordered the ribs. They were awful. Too dry tough, and BBQ sauce masked the flavor. How did they get to be famous? I don't think they care about the customers experience. I did not get any value for the price I paid.

We decided to eat at Famous Dave's because it was close to our hotel. The outside of the restaurant was nice, but I was really impressed with the inside. It was very spacious and had a welcoming atmosphere. There was great music playing the entire time we were there. And there were several flat screen tvs mounted on the walls... More

We went on a Friday evening and were seated right away. Our server Shane was extremely pleasant. The food came out very quickly after ordering. I believe it only took 4-5 minutes to arrive. Everything tasted good. My only complaint is the my sandwich could have been a little warmer. It was not worth worrying about. The brownie dessert was... More

I think I've eaten at Dave's somewhere in tidewater Virginia. This was spur-of-the-moment on the way back from a meeting, and excellent. I had the brisket platter which was wonderful, and I loved the additional corn-on-the-cob. Also loved the Fire-n-Ice "moonshine" cocktail.
