I went with my family. The food is good, we like everything that we ate. But paying $50.00 for two adults and 2 small kids with out alcoholic drink it's too much.

Squished into crowded area with crying kids even though the rest of the place was empty. We've eaten at lots of Famous Daves and usually enjoy them but this time no one in our party thought their food tasted right. We left four half-eaten plates, feeling disappointed and $50 poorer.

Great service and extensive menu with very helpful allergy menu. I'm Coeliac and usually struggle with BBQ grill places with lots of sauces and breaded deep fried foods but I opted for grilled chicken with corn on the cob and broccoli and it was all so tasty succulent and fresh.

We stopped going to the chain restaurants in wisconsin dells because they have all been a big disapointment. We love to go to the local other places but ended up at famous daves today. We were very pleasantly surprised with it. The service was lacking a bit, but the food made up for it.

My husband LOVES ribs. Famous Daves is famous for ribs. Well, he said they were good enough but not GREAT. It satisfied the hankering to go to Daves, we don't have to go again for a long time. I had Dave's famous hamburger. I felt the same way he did... good, not great.

I was staying at a nearby hotel and placed an order over the phone for a carry-out. When I got there to pick up my order I inspected it before I left. It was a good thing I did because I ordered spareribs with burnt ends and they only gave me the ribs. There seemed to be a language barrier... More

On pair with all other Famous Dave's restaurants. Dinner on a Friday evening and was surprised it wasn't more crowded. Guess the summer crowd will be different. Sat at the bar. Very interesting design. Lots of old interesting things to check out. Food was very good. Staff are college kids mostly from other countries and the ones I encountered, weren't... More

The food was excellent, and the staff couldn't have been more friendly. The Brisket and ribs were great. The corn bread and mac and cheese yummy.

We came in with a group of 9 and no reservation, but they got us in right away. There were several large groups there. We got two garbage can lids of food. It was perfect.

We went here for dinner last night as a group of 12. The food was great and the service was stellar. Highly recommend this place as family friendly and won't break the bank either!

We're passionate about BBQ-and honored that BBQ lovers from coast to coast continue to select us as America's best. Authentic BBQ starts in a live-wood smoker stoked with genuine hickory logs. Our pitmasters hand-rub the meats with a custom blend of spices and cook for hours to extract the natural flavors.
We source the highest quality meats and trim them up like we're in a competition.
