Every trip to Branson should include a trip to Famous Dave's. Try to save room for the bread pudding, it's delicious!

This is the best BBQ in Branson. Love everything I've tried. The BBQ nachos are excellent as is the BBQ chicken. Nice family spot. Good food and amazing view of the lake and Parakeet Petes zip line over the lake.

We love this restaurant. The burnt ends are the best. Great happy hour with 1/2 price apps. Pitcher of beer only$5.50! We had a great time. Didn't need supper after the filling appetizers! Will definitely be back.

Our food was fantastic, but our server was over the top. He made sure we had everything we needed, kept our drinks coming, he was friendly and just made it a fantastic night

just like any other chain i feel other venues in Branson are better take a cruise to eureka springs, Arkansas and look for the giant pink pig at bubbas, not to mention Eureka Springs is worth the drive! i have visited Eureka & Branson well over 100 times! 15 times since feb 12 my grandsons birthday who lives there

We stopped while shopping at the Landing for a beer and appetizer. Good cold beer and when we got the bill the appetizer was half price. Nice service and we had a little more shopping money. Will be back.

I would love to say I had the best barbeque ribs; however this was not the case. They were tough and the sauce was just OK. The bake potato was perfect; the highlight of my meal. The server was polite and friendly. Perfect barbeque is Dana's in Branson; & Branson West.

This location of famous daves is great. It's located in the Branson regional airport in Hollister, MO. The food is always good. And the service is usually fast since they are used to getting people on their planes quickly. There is a bar, and a limited menu. But limited doesn't mean bad. Let's just say they quite smartly took their... More

We enjoyed the outdoor seating on the river - beautiful scenic views while we enjoyed some great BBQ - I will warn you - there is music playing all the time outside - 80's Rock and then some easy listening music. So if the music will bother you - go inside and enjoy a great meal ;)
