Stopped in for Happy Hour at the bar area. Sarah our Bartender was great and really knew a lot of the customers coming in. Nice to see a personal touch. Ordered the nachos with brisket (special price during Happy Hour). Large portion and very tasty with lots of brisket. There's a large dining room in addition to the bar with... More

Pulled pork melts in your mouth. No need for silverware! Great service. Reasonable prices. I have been here a few times and never have been disappointed. All the staff always seems very friendly and happy with their job. I am going to attribute that to a good group of managers whom I have never met.

I had a good solo lunch on Friday, 07-15-16, at Famous Dave's on Hwy 16, Onalaska, WI. Clean, dim, rustic atmosphere, comfortable booth. Golf was playing on the muted TV. Accessibility is moderate: one handicap parking spot, no door buttons, two sets of doors to get in, and you have to pull inward to open the restroom door. Restroom clean,... More

I was in La Crosse for a business trip, and came across Famous Daves. As my wife hates BBQ I figured it was the perfect time to indulge. I ordered for takeout, and was very pleasantly surprised. They easily have one of the best takeout systems. A take out room is well equipped with take out items. The food is... More

My family, friends, and I eat here often and they never disappoint! Great food, cool interior, and amazing service! And very inexpensive, which a lot of places with a fun theme like theirs can be wildly over priced. Toddlers, kids, and teens will enjoy their time as well! They even have cute toys for the little ones! Great experience all... More

Great food and very pleasant place to eat. Not loud like some of the Famous Dave's. Food is always good and help is very pleasant.

We stop here often enough when we visit La Crosse and this visit was no exception. We were greeted and seated right away. Our waitress brought our drink order out right away as well. Food was quick to arrive and nice and hot. I love the grilled pineapple and BBQ chicken. I am SO glad they went back to the... More

Came from out of state to take my daughter out for her birthday. Food was great. Beer was cold. After all was eaten during the main course it was time for dessert. She had a complimentary dessert choice and she chose bread pudding. Shortly thereafter our waiter, Brandon, appeared with a jumbo sparkler fountain firework shooting pretty high positioned right...

My S/O and I typically choose to go out to eat later in the evening, between 7 and 9pm. As a server myself, I know what it's like to be just THIS close to closing, tired, and just want to go home. As hard as it is, we try not to let it reflect in our faces. We arrived 30... More

It had been a long time since we had dined at a Famous Dave's anywhere. I was less than impressed. In fact if it hadn't been for the adorable baby at the next table the evening would have been a total disappointment. It seemed like it took forever for a waitstaff person to greet us. This guy was suave but... More
