We haven't been to Famous Daves for quite awhile and went with another couple tonight. All of us loved the food and the nice additions to the menu. The service was great too! I had the best salmon I have ever had!

Ate here late Saturday afternoon. The service was extremely friendly and the food was very good as well. I had the rib tips and brisket. While the rib tips were a bit overdone they were good. The brisket was excellent.
