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.

    Gods food and the margaritas were delicious, but he could’ve taken our large trashcan off the table after we were done eating so we could visit for a minute. Plus it was extremely loud in the back where we were located.

    The waiter was great but his frustration with the delays in food coming out were definitely noticed. Ordered the surf and turf and received a Wagyu that was about 60% fat and gristle. The lobster roll was mostly cream cheese. Will not be returning any time soon

    The overall meal and service were great. The only negative were the "buffalo" wings which didn't have much buffalo flavor.

    I was a little surprised that they did not give seating preference to OpenTable reservations and allowed walkins that had been waiting to be seated before our reservation. Food was good and fast enough. The server did a nice job. Our only complaint was about the hostess seating others before our OpenTable reservation.

    Using OpenTable to reserve a spot didn't improve our wait time at all. We waited 25 minutes just like everyone else who walked in and put their name on the list.

    No one was at the front desk when we arrived and waited 10 minutes before we even saw a worker up front. The restaurant wasn’t all that busy and they seemed to have plenty of staff. Once we were seated we waited for another 20 minutes till our waiter came. People who were seated after us were served before we were. Our food arrived late and was cold. We also didn’t realize how expensive everything was. Overall horrible experience and will never go back.

    Just FYI I was told upon arrival that the this isn’t a true “reservation”, rather it was a “you move to the top of a wait list”. We arrived right at our reservation time and had to wait nearly a half hour to be seated.

    Got seated in the bar area. The server has way to much to do and was also the bar tender. Food was cold when it arrived and the brisket very dry. Took almost 30 minutes after I finished my dinner to get the check. Very disappointed in the whole dinning experience. Sorry Daves, but won’t be back anytime soon.

    Waitress was snotty and definitely not customer focused. Multiple issues had to ask for silverware 3 times, one persons ribs came out and they were all fat, instead of just fixing the issue walked away and sent another server over. That person took care of the problem fast. Messed up the checks, had requested two checks and she took 2 orders but everything ended up 9n one check, put her fingers in one persons food as she was removing another item that was wrong. Two sassy salads came out with no meat and she Just blamed the kitchen and left. No water or drink refills, etc. I would give some slack if it had been busy, but it wasn’t. The one bright spot was the manager. When we finally asked for him , he fixed everything quickly. Saw him doing the same at 3 other tables in our section. He was very personable and running to keep the food rolling. I get staffing is difficult right now and everyone is stressed, but there is no excuse for this type of service. If the waitress had at least been hospitable, the night would have been much better. Instead we spent our whole dinner looking for food. We eat at famous Dave’s often while traveling and usually it’s a very good experience.
