For starters, I cook some mean ribs so I will try to avoid comparing what I had in FD with what I cook home. That being said, I was pleasantly surprised by some of their ribs because they were tender and tasty. Unfortunately, others in my group received dry, overcooked ribs. I think they have a problem of consistency and... More

One of us was hungry for a taste of the US, so we stopped by Famous Dave's. Wednesday at 6:30pm and the large restaurant was EMPTY - sad. At first we sat at a booth and waited and waited, no server came, so we moved to the bar. Smart decision, the bartender was very good. Beers are served in a... More

Went here last night for my birthday dinner - have been a few times in the past. Food was great as usual - I love the St Louis ribs, and the Burnt Ends are a must-try! I was disappointed when I tried to use a "50% off one entree" coupon that the Famous Dave's birthday club sent me via e-mail,... More

The food was good. We ate the Feast and the dessert was the pecan pie. However we had to wait too much for everything, even to pay.

We loved the sampler, but the dessert was outstanding. No we're planning on taking friends and relatives. The service (servers; all of them) was jolly and in great moods. They were a lot of fun and we didn't have call them or as for dessert... it was ready, on its own, when we were ready. How nice!
