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.

Slow seating, slow wait staff, and slow bar service all on a night with maybe 40 customers in the whole place. It seemed the limited staff on hand were not working together and were not sure of who was doing what. We had reservations for four people at 6pm. Took until almost 8:30 to get out of there and they actually close early at 8pm no doubt due to the lack of employees. All that being said, the food quality had not suffered at all. It was excellent, just took forever to get it. Very sad, we like FD and hope as time goes on they can get past this, perhaps a new manager would organize the limited staff resources better?

Rene was an amazing server! Hands down best service we have ever had anywhere, she was very on it with drinks and food! Didn’t even have to ask for refills. She was awesome, great food and drinks also!

I had made reservations through OpenTable to meet a friend for lunch here on May 3, 2021. Much to my surprise the restaurant parking lot was empty. I thought maybe we had beaten the lunch rush, but then when I looked at the notice on the door, it said they were closed due to safety issues. I wished that I would have known that before driving down there for my lunch meeting. Next time I will need to call instead of using OpenTable. I found out the next day that the restaurant had a tarp all around it, so I am assuming it was being fumigated.

The food has gotten very mediocre. This was one of our favorite places before the pandemic; now I doubt we will return. The pulled chicken had a lot of fat, which had not happened before. The rest of our meal was acceptable, but not at the level it used to be.

A sad comedown for what was once a fabulous experience.

They kind of rip you off if you want to add a salad to your meal. Also the food was terrible. It was cold and the ribs were incredibly fatty. Green beans had zero flavor. The only part that was decent was the cornbread.

Food was great (St. Louis ribs and salmon dishes) as was the excellent service by Ashley and Jess. And the bread pudding was the best. We appreciate that they are observing all state - mandated COVID protocols. Will definitely be back soon.

The kitchen had poor communication with server. 20 minutes after we ordered the kitchen said they were out of the item we all selected. After making new selections we were then reinformed that they did have the item. Very confusing. We didn’t receive our corn muffins until we were almost finished with dinner. We usually have a great experience here so we were surprised to have these problems

Been going to this location for a few years. We always get the all American feast. This time I was not as happy with our barbecue. The ribs were not as good. And the brisket was terrible. It’s usually my favorite. I am afraid I may not return.

My wife makes the best ribs I've ever had but this was the best restaurant ribs I've had out... much better than Lucille's. The service was excellent, I had ordered some burn butt and our waitress's name was "Ash" funny.

Servers wore their face masks Over their mouths but not over their noses which made them useless. I had the only server that wore his correctly protecting us to its fullest. Had we had a different server we would have left. I will not return without calling first to find out if masks are being worn correctly.

Social distancing, for the most part, was very nice although there is a walkway that is pretty close to the tables that looks more like a hallway so it is hard to social distance fully with people leaving and needing to walk right next to your table to leave. It was very clean and paper menus were very smart as well.

Even though the state officially allowed restaurants to open the 9th, Famous Dave's chose to remain closed till Monday the 11th.
Yet somehow OpenTable through the Famous Dave's website allowed me to make a reservation anyway.

We arrived about 15 minutes before our reservation, and were seated immediately.
Our waitress was a little over zealous, in that she appeared to be rushing our order's.
We asked her to slow down a little as we were not in a hurry, and the restaurant was
not overly busy while we were there. ONCE WE SPOKE WITH HER ABOUT NOT BEING
RUSHED.... SHE WAS EXCELLENT AND SERVICE WAS GREAT.
