Seriously! Always super fast and friendly service. I haven't had a less than perfect meal there yet and I've been there several times! They even have REAL sweet tea! (Like in the south)

There has never been a bad meal and we have tried everything on the menu! The cornbread alone will keep you coming back (as my stomach starts churning writing this review). Great for celebrations or for a quick stop. The staff is always there to please! Beautiful atmosphere.

Me and my family had lunch here at Famous Daves and the food was terrific. My Wife and Son had the ribs and they said it was delicious. My daughter had the tenders kids meal and always loved it, she even got Oreo's with her meal. I had the pulled pork and it was good. We spent $39.00 for all... More

We have had issues with Dave's for awhile and just stopped going. Everything i too salty. I like my ribs naked so I can add the sauce, but it is 50/50 if they get it right. The last time I was in they had taken the sauces off the tables and put them on a bookshelf unit. You had to... More

First off, never mind a lot of the negative reviews of this restaurant. Everything was top-notch from the moment we walked into the place. The service was great and the food was very good. We ordered the Feast for One and rib tips. This was plenty food for two people. So give it a try.

Service was great. Place was empty. The food is very good. I really enjoyed the brisket. The jalapeno mac & cheese has just the right amount of heat. The beer selection is terrible. They need to do something about it. Overall, a good meal.

The food was ok but the service wasn't the best. Some staff were just playing around not very professional. I didn't care for that type of atmosphere.

Honestly I was not impressed with Famous Dave's, the food is very average and when my boyfriend and I were there the place was a mess. We went during the week as we were craving some delicious BBQ meats, ribs, brisket etc; it's very hard to find good BBQ in Mays Landing. As we entered we passed at least 3... More

The ribs served at Famous Dave's are absolutely the best. I go there whenever I'm in the area. The side dishes are great: baked beans, corn-on-the-cob, corn bread, plus the great variety of sauces for all types of tastes. The decoration is warm and cozy as if inside a log cabin in the woods.
