We took the kids and grandkids to the mall for the afternoon and stopped for dinner. It was difficult to get out of the parking lot when we left because there are no traffic lights but that is the only negative thing I have to say. The Ribs are fantastic. You are given different choices of sauces on the table... More

We stopped in on a Saturday night. It wasn't that busy, which kind of alarmed me. However, we were greeted and seated instantly. Cait (our waitress) was extremely helpful and pleasant. Food was delicious. No complaints.

I stopped by for lunch while in the area. I normally get the brisket but I was looking for something along the lines of a lunch item. I really didn't expect much from the burger since they specialize in BBQ. I was wrong, the burger was perfect, smoky, tangy and sweet. The only problem I could barely finish it. The... More

I am not usually a chain restaurant kind of person, but Famous Daves I make an exception for. We got a sampler and the burnt ends got our attention. Next time we will just order them, as they were really tender and good. Service is always good for us, and the Sweet and Sassy sauce is our favorite anywhere.

Everyone was happy with their food except me. They liked their ribs and pulled pork sandwich. The corn bread muffins are really good. I ordered the steak which was about 80 pct inedible due to a gristle running thru the entire piece. I couldn't even cut thru it. I finally gave up fighting it and ate my sides. $85 for... More

Took a client to FD for his birthday dinner. 6PM on a Monday and the place was empty, but service was less than attentive. We order the All-American feast and the meats were so-so, the portions were less than I expected for the price, the fries were cold, the corn over-boiled. The coleslaw was the best part. My client; who... More

Lunch was great having the meat combo, wings and brisket with baked beans and corn bread. Reminds you of a family cook out with non of the work. Got to stop by for the feast.

We had an extremely good meal today at Famous Dave's. The ribs and sides were delicious. The ribs while cooked extremely well and falling off the bone lacked the size that we were used to. They were a little on the thin side but still tasted great! We ate in the bar and the server was also the bartender. She... More

I've made several visits to Famous Dave's in Grandville, MI. Their food is fantastic, the atmosphere is fun, and the staff members are very personable. Out of all the restaurants in Grandville, Famous Dave's is our first choice.
