The food was very good and the portions were large. I ordered the add on dinner salad and it was larger than I expected and had a variety of items I would not expect in a dinner salad. There was no wait time but we did arrive after peak dinner hours - I believe there would be a wait otherwise.

If bar-b-que is your thing, this is a great place to have it. I loved that they had several different sauces on the table to try out. The menu was quite extensive, catering to small appetites as well as the over the top huge portions. One of my companions ordered a dessert. You could have fed and army with it.

All the Famous Dave's have closed in Texas so when we were visiting out daughter in LA we had to take advantage of the situation. The BBQ is excellent as we remembered. The BBQ chicken is outstanding and love their sauces.

I've been to many Famous Dave's and love them. I did take out this time as we were staying close at the Dock Side Bed and Breakfast. We received our meal quicker than if we had waited for a table. We were given a ton of sauces and condiments to go and everything with smiles.

I had my comments removed on their Facebook page as they obviously do not wish the awful service from the girl on reception highlighted We asked for a table for two and was told it would be about 20 minutes and to wait at the bar which was fine with us but when we asked about 40 minutes later when...

The food was DELICIOUS as always we were happy, then the bill came and it was tallied incorrectly, so... More

Found this located by my hotel, familiar with this chain as they are all over Minnesota. Had a great bartender that never let me go dry and he loved his job and it showed.

I normally do not rate chain restaurants, as they normally do not change much from one to another. However, this particular Famous Dave's had very dry and flavorless Texas brisket in the "sampler" meal for two. I assume that they expect the diners to use their various sauces, which are decent, but nothing that I would take home. As far... More
