Place was maybe half full, I was dining alone, was seated right away, but waited almost ten minutes before a single person came by. Waitress was very polite,... More

My cousin and I needed somewhere filling to eat as we decided to be dare devils on an empty stomach. So, not only was our nerves completely shot we were absolutely hungry and we hoped the restaurant... More

After a long day of water sliding we ate a late supper here. The food and service was great. We shared a combo meal for 2, but it fed 2 adults and 1 child, with leftovers to take with us.

Service people were personable and the ribs, etc were good, as I have come to expect with most Famous Dave's. Had a nice ambiance.

Our kids just love Famous Dave's. We get the family feast. It is plenty of food for our family of four. We always have enough for lunch the next day. The kids think it is cool that it is served in a trash can lid and arrives quickly. The food is good. Remember this BBQ and family style eating, it... More
