We have driven by various Famous Dave outlets during our travels and always said "next time" . This time it was the destination of choice and we weren't let down . Walking in we really felt like we were transported to the Deep South . Both the greeter and the server were very friendly . Two of us had the... More

What a great place. Very friendly people and great wait staff. Seated quickly and served quickly. Excellent menu and a good selection of beers too. The beef brisket with BBQ beans is fabulous. So too the rack of pork with mash potatoes and coleslaw. Great place to go if you want to watch a bit of sport on the huge... More

Since Famous Dave's near home has closed, I've had a hankering for good BBQ. Famous Dave's never disappoints! We had the opportunity to have dinner with my daughter and new son-in-law before back to California. Great place for BBQ!

Before serving several... More

I love this place. We always order the feast which includes a little bit of everything. The ribs, brisket, and corn muffin are my favorites, but everything is really good. I don't mind driving 25 minutes to this place, the only con is that i always end up having too much food :p

We visit here as a party of 13. We call ahead and tell them we are coming and they say it's only a 10 min wait. When we arrive they then are shocked it's a party of 13 and that it would be a 45 min wait. We were ok with that. But the fact the staff did nothing but... More

Twenty minutes to get the drinks to our table. Another fifteen minutes to get our order, and another twenty minutes to get our food. The food was very good. We never saw our waiter again during or meal. Drinks never got refreshed or refilled. It took another thirty minutes to get or check after we were done eating. Three hours... More
