If you have ever eaten a Famous Dave's, this is a good place to stop for dinner. My friend and I asked to be seated outside, which overlooked the Marina. It was so beautiful. You could see the boats coming in and out, plus the breeze off the harbor was very cooling. Our waitress was VERY attentive and the food was very good. It is located just outside of Cedar Point, so once leaving the park, be sure to get your hand stamped so you can enter back in. We made our way over there about 5 pm and was seated immediately. Upon leaving 2 hours later, the wait was 60 minutes.

We stopped in late after a day in the park. Most of us ordered ribs and they were delicious. Good portions. The 1/2 chicken is a great alternative instead of ribs. Fun atmosphere, excellent value and nice view of the boats on the water.

This is a great restaurant. The location is the best part about it. When you walk out from eating on a beautiful summer night, you can hear the coasters flying by. You can see Millennium Force's giant lift hill. We went here the night before our first day at the park and it was a great experience!!!

When traveling to Cedar Point, we always make a point to eat at Famous Dave's. They are consistently excellent with some of the best ribs we have ever had!

The food was good but the prices a little high. The value was great given you're a captive audience in an amusement park. One of the best places we found to eat while at Cedar Point. Just need to gauge the crowd and try to go during off peak hours or the wait can be long.
