Nice setting! The atmosphere was definitely western and great. But our beef brisket was dry. I did expect the food to be better. The service was good.

Famous Daves does not have "gluten free options" if you ask, but they will help with gluten intolerant choices. They brought out an allergy information sheet and we're knowledgable about the choices. The food was tasty and the service prompt and friendly.

Our server was very attentive and helpful. Even though our party included little ones and we were more interested in catching up than eating, the experience was a very pleasant one. On this visit as on every visit, the food portions are more than adequate.

My server made sure I had everything I needed (extra napkins, wetwipes, plasticware, etc). She also threw in an... More

We got to the Lexington Inn and Suites, and saw that there was a BBQ place just across the street, so said "guess we should try it". It was great, the waitress was more than helpful and the food great. She gave us a chance to taste the different sauces and even gave us a free bottle to take home.... More

This is one of the better Famous Dave's that I have been at. The service is always good. The place is clean every time we go here. The food is very good. Pricey but good. My wife and I will sometimes get the Feast for Two and have enough for 3 meals.

Service was excellent. Made sure we were taken care of but not to the point of being pushy. BBQ was good with a variety of sauce options. Price is reasonable. Good selection of sides and they were good as well.
