Years ago, we tried going to this place multiple times. Our problem had been numerous, from the endless flies, which almost seemed staged to give you a feeling at being at an outside BBQ? But, during one of the visits, we found a wire brush bristle in the food. Apparently it came from a wire brush used to clean the... More

I have eaten in a Famous Dave's in New Jersey, and this restaurant offered a slightly different menu, but the same high quality, delicious food. I ordered a roasted chicken dinner, which came with a choice of 2 sides and a complimentary basked of freshly made potato chips. The portions were so large that I ate my leftovers for supper....

We ate here recently with our 10-year-old twins. They both had the chopped chicken children's meal and both ate everything. We enjoyed the meal and the service was excellent. Had no wait to go in and my children were amused by the decor. Would recommend for anyone who likes bbq food.

Famous Dave's that was located in Richmond, VA went out of business a few years ago and we were surprised and happy to find this location which was near our hotel. The Cedar Salmon was delicious and mashed potatoes superb. Emily C was our server and she was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable regarding the menu. She recommended the Bread Pudding... More

The atmosphere was pleasant, a little loud but not no bad. Our waitress was very attentive to our needs. The manager ( I think she was the manager ) even came over to our table and asked if we were enjoying our meal. The food was so good. My husband and I got the feast 2 or 3 people and... More

The food tasted great and the service was quick. The only issue was the bar did not have any Captain Morgan Rum and no Sailor Jerry. The only 2 brands I drink. The bartender was great and improvised by making me a fruity drink - which was very good. Just seemed odd the bar wasn't better stocked. Not sure who... More

I've eaten here previously just after they opened, but the experience was so much better this time around, as was the food.
