We went to Famous Dave's for the first time. They explained the menu and what they like to eat they let us taste all the bbq sauces so we knew what we were ordering. They even gave us a bottle of bbq sauce. I will stop at that one again when we are in the area.

Ordered about 5pm on a Saturday. Called it in. Order taker seemed to be having some trouble, but read back of order was correct. Food (Cheeseburger, ribs, and two desserts) was ready on time. Had to request utensils. Got back to the hotel room and discovered that the burger was not well done as requested, was not ketchup as requested and was not a cheeseburger as requested. (We paid for a cheeseburger). Nevertheless my son declared the burger and brownie dessert delicious so I've upped the rating from poor to average. We did not make an attempt to contact anyone about the mistake. Too tired once we got to the room.

Eat here in a Monday night. The food was Excellent. I recommend the 'burnt ends'. First time I've had them and it won't be the last. Our server was prompt friendly and attentive without being overly so. Gave some great beer recommendations and even offered a small free sample to see if we liked it. Great place to eat.

I'd first like to point out the incredible customer service at this restaurant. We have been there several times in recent months, and are always blown away by the customer service - from the friendly host staff to the attentive servers. Host staff and/or management will drop by your table, ask if you're enjoying your meal, and ask to clear any dishes. The food is always delicious, the cocktails are incredible, and the Hot Fudge Kahlua Brownie dessert is to die for (if you have room)!

Been to Famous Dave's many times since it's close to where we live. It is a casual "down home" atmosphere. Tried another BBQ place in Maple Grove but wasn't as good as Dave's. The sauce is good and there are other choices at the table if you want it spicier. You can also order without the sauce if you don't like the sauce or prefer to add your own. The Memphis rub is excellent. Also available is chicken, soups, salads and appetizers. I feel it's a bit pricey but one way to save money is to buy the feast platter for two or for four if you have 2 or more in your party. The feast includes ribs, chicken, pulled pork, cole slaw, beans, corn on the cob, and cornbread so a something for every one. Our wait people have always been friendly. And it is easily accessible from the hotels around the area.
