Our authentic BBQ starts in a live-wood smoker stoked with genuine hickory logs. Our pitmasters hand-rub the meats with a custom blend of spices and cook for hours to extract the natural flavors. We source the highest quality meats and trim them up like we’re in a competition and hand-rub them with the freshest seasonings available to create mouthwatering experiences! In addition to our BBQ and grilled meats, our menu features a selection of salads, sandwiches, side items, and made-from-scratch desserts.

    I was so glad to know that Famous Dave's had a new location! The previous location at the Branson Landing was just horrific when trying to find parking and trying to reserve seating for family.

    This experience wasn’t as great as previous ones. My family is from out of state and went to Branson on Fall Break. We go to eat at Famous Dave’s and are told you have to have a reservation. We make a reservation for two nights later and get in ok but once in notice a cash only sign. We have to run outside to an ATM. The food was mediocre but service was lacking. We might just go somewhere else next time.

    Food was very good, we ate out on the patio overlooking the river, it was a beautiful day. Due to the pandemic help was short handed, yet our server did a great job. Was sorry to see that they did not serve any KC Baby back ribs, but the St.Louis ribs were OK, brisket was very good.

    Food was amazing! Service was not... was there for about 30 minutes before we could order food and when told a manager would be by to answer a question we had, the manager didn’t show until the end of the meal. Springfield location was 100x better!

    Food was good. Brisket was very tasty. Fish was a little "fresh" in taste. Had the burnt ends and they were great, just would've expected a little larger portion for $11.

    Food was great. BBQ/rib joint atmosphere. Service was excellent. Portions generous. A little pricey for this kind of establishment. No parking near the restaurant. In the middle of a shopping village. Probably at least .5 mile from parking lot.

    The food selection was quite good, so were the sauces provided on the tables. The food itself in the other hand was quite bland, although a little tender. The side dishes were fine. Went there bc our friend was craving bbq and we saw good reviews. My sister ended up with hair in her mashed potatoes; the incident was dealt with accordingly with the manager so that's a relief. But I probs wouldn't return bc of the bland meat.

    The food was perfect!! However it was very hot in that little room. It was almost as hot as being outside. Our waitress was not very friendly and a little slow on service. I would still recommend for the food!!

    Only issue we had is that our waitress had an emergency and then we were forgotten about waited an hour after ordering for our food and my dad didn’t get his chili that he ordered. But when we got our food it was great.

    Absolutely loved this place! We were visiting the area from Oklahoma and definitely will have to eat here when we go back to Branson. Roberto was our waiter and he was great, very nice, knew what he was doing, he was quick. The sauces that they have at the table are the best! Everything about this place is just great. I definitely recommend!

    The food quality and service has declined from our last visit. The food used to be so fresh and hot, sadly today the food was just okay, definitely nothing to brag about. We had a table of 9 and 4 of the meals came out several minutes before the others. My baked potato was cold when delivered. Sad to say we probably won't be back anytime soon.

    The front of the restaurant was empty and they seated our family of 5 in the back where it was packed. Apparently, either a current or former employee was at the restaurant and the other employees keep stopping by causing a distraction constantly. Along with the fact that the table was full of young guys being loud and Slapping each other on the back! Management should have stepped in and took control of the situation.

    We stopped here for a quick dinner. We were seated right away. the service was quick and he was very personable. Food was good. We lucked up and were there when they had a platter of assorted food for 2. We had enough left over for lunch the next day for both of us!
