After a long day of driving we were looking for a good meal in a comfortable setting. Famous Dave's was all that and more! Our food was great, the catfish was fantastic! Our server was great and the whole dining experience was prefect ending to a long day! We will definitely be stopping here our next time through this area.

We came to Dave's as this is one of my boyfriend's favorite restaurants. Today, they were having free meals for veterans. He is a veteran too. He enjoyed his meal so much. Our waitress, Maureen was wonderful. Once again, we enjoyed our visit. Thanks to Dave's for providing free meals to veterans.

Ribs were not fall off the bone tender but good with the rich and sassy sauce. The pulled pork was even better with the sweet and zesty sauce. Fries and... More

Although it's not THE BEST BBQ out there, it's good and fills a belly to contentment and even happiness. I am a burnt ends fanatic and theirs is definitely tasty. Their Nachos are... More

I hadn't been in several years. The first time the place WOWED me this time not so much. The portions less, service less, thus LESS satisfaction
