This is our 2nd visit to eat there, the food and service was great. We had dinner for 2, portions are huge. Go hungry and relax while watching the game or just visit, can't wait to go back!

This was on the pricey side to feed a family dinner while traveling. Our waitress was fantastic, service was quick, food was as expected and tasty. We've been to many famous Daves restaurants, and this one was more cozy and classy than the ones we've...More

We occasionally go to famous daves, and usually it's pretty good food (excellent cornbread muffins!). We're kind of picky about BBQ since we're from the south.... but it's pretty good considering it's a BBQ chain! Always clean and friendly staff!
