A group of 10 went to lunch here, the table was ready in our own room, and the server had no problem with separate checks. 2nd time our group has eaten here, and always are served at the same time. Bills always correct. The food is delicious and generous portions - I took home baby back ribs for dinner.

The food was great. We ordered BBQ tacos and a feast for 2. The feast for 2 was enough for my 2 sons (17 &10) and myself. My wife also picked out of it. We had some to bring home as well. The service was OK but not great. She was friendly just not great. I would absolutely eat here... More

Good chain restaurant bbq with lots to eat, definitely won't go away hungry. Just a laid-back family style restaurant for BBQ.

We've ordered a lot of different things on their menu and I can't think of 1 think that's not really tasty. From the briskek to the chicken all is tasty. The corn muffins are really good. We always had good service

Service was seriously lacking and bordering unfriendly. They were busy, but seemed frustrated about it. Food was not that great as well.I ordered the ribs and fries basket; didn't know it was going to come all shoved in a little basket with my fries on the bottom cover in gooey Bar-B-Que sauce too.

Famous Dave's in Hermitage TN offers one of the most tasty, juicy and tender rib eye steaks rivaling any high end steak house in Nashville. They only offer it on the weekends and my wife and I have never been disappointed. The Baby back ribs are also especially good and full of the delicious barbeque taste Famous Dave's is famous...

We order to go from here more than once a month. I love good barbecue, and for a chain, this is amazing! My favorite is the burnt ends, but my husband always enjoys (and I always steal) the brisket, and the ribs are delightful.

We have visited several Famous Dave's during our summer RV travels. This location could do better to meet the corporate average. The baby back ribs and pulled pork were both dried out. Service was good as usual.

As always, great service and wonderful food! The cornbread is sweet and delicious and their ribs are awesome! We never experienced bad customer service. The wait staff are courteous and friendly.
