Reviewed 24 April 2013

I love Famous Daves and my family does too. The one here in Minneapolis is consistent with the others. The food is good and great portions. The staff is nice too!

“Great chow, great experience, great staff”
Reviewed 23 April 2013

My wife and two adult sons were there last Friday and were impressed with the service, including the various waiters and other employees we had contact with. We ordered the Family Feast for four and ended up taking quite a bit home - it truly is a feast and could easily serve 6 adults!

The atmosphere was great, floor area and restrooms were clean and the waiter was there every 5 minutes checking to see if we needed anything.

We will definitely be going back, hopefully when the band is playing!

The only knock is a lack of nearby parking. There is a parking ramp next door but it cost us $9 for a <3 hour stay.

“Good music, killer brunch!”
Reviewed 19 April 2013

The only thing better than Famous Dave's barbecue is Famous Dave's barbecue and live music. This is a great blues club and a fun place to get together with friends. You MUST try the Sunday brunch. Awesome!

“Ya gotta love this place”
Reviewed 26 February 2013

Maybe it's a "guy thing," but I love Famous Dave's. My wife's so-so on it. Back in the day, there was no place like Rudolph's for great ribs in Minneapolis. Dave's took away that crown the minute it was opened. Sure, it's crowded and noisy, and you have to wait forever to get seated. But the food -- and the multiple sauces at each table -- are SOOO worth it.
