My wife and I decided to have Dave's the other day on a whim. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and had about a 10 minute wait. We were sat at a clean table then things went awry. We asked our waitress for a minute more to peruse the menu and we didn't see her again for 20 minutes. Luckily a waitress in an adjacent section noticed we were just sitting there and came over. She apologized for her coworkers mistake and told us we would be comped dessert. We were impressed with her sincerity and awareness of the tables around her. Shortly after our original waitress stopped by and did something impressive. She gave an honest explanation of what happened and took responsibility for her oversight. This was refreshing to say the least. Our food was expedited and was hot and delicious. Our desserts were tasty as well. Well done Dave's and the two waitresses for their awareness and honesty.

We've been to all the trendy rib joints and still think Dave's is the best. Quality food at a reasonable price.

Well first off we got sat in the bar and we have 3 children. Then we ordered with whom I think was the bar tender. When the food runner or whim ever brought our food, we told her we were missing a kids meal. She looked at us and shrugged her shoulders, and didnt even tell our server. When our server at least 5 mins later did come over she said how is everything and we had not even touched our food, cause we eat as a family. We had to ask for my fries, my daughters meal, the sides of ranch that we had already ordered, refills on our drinks, and the muffins that we didn't get. Once she got us all of the missing things, asked us kinda rudely if we needed anything else, as if we had messed up. Then to top thing off gave us the wrong bill that was $10 more than ours, once I bright it to ER attention we didn't order a feast or the other things in the bill. We usually go to westland FD, and will continue to go to that one cause we have never had any problems there!

The rib tips are to die for. Love the wings and the rich and sassy sauce. The best corn muffin ever. The Wilbur beans are a must try.

This is a typical Famous Daves, fulfilling the brand promise of the chain well. Food was good, and as we were a family group, we decided to try the All American Combo so that everyone could have a little of everything. Food and service were fine. Price at Famous Dave's seems a bit high to me for what you get in terms of food quality and atmosphere, so we don't go there often.
