Slow paced meal with limited service. Students are gone on break and there was little business that night. Food was delivered we didn't order. Right food finally came. Did enjoy the food we ordered.

Awful experience! Had hair in salad and a bottle cap in salad dressing. Manager said she would comp the meal and still tried charging me half of the meal.

This is very good Famous Dave's. They know how to move people in and out, the wait wasn't long and we were there on a Friday night, but it was busy. The food was good, and this one even had some good specials, which is rare for a Famous Dave's.

We lost our Famous Dave's in Topeka because of poor management. Recently while visiting Manhattan, I wanted the sweet water catfish fingers. The manager at this Famous Dave's in Manhattan must be hitting all the marks because the host was very polite and friendly, our server was very attentive and the food was definitely good. This Famous Dave's is a... More

This place has wonderful BBQ and even better people! Their drinks are also surprisingly very good! We try to go here at least once or twice a month! Would recommend to just about anyone!

Famous Dave's has very good food with generous portions whether you dine in or pick up a take out order. I like to eat their food monthly if I can. Some menu changes have been pleasant surprises, such as fish and chips which were tasty and of the just right consistency. However, I miss some items that have been removed... More

Tough ribs, cold mashed potatoes, cold beans, and cold mac-n-cheese. Poor slow service. Pass this place up and find something better. We have been to several Famous Dave's all over the United States and this one was very poor, pass it up and find something better.

2 meat combos all around the table. Server kept glasses full. Food was hot and plentiful. We ate for under $30 plus tip. Lots of to go boxes for cooler and car trip home! Awesome dinner choices!

Famous Daves is a place you wanna go to if you dont care about getting messy. They have little wipes amd napkins at the tables. Even a hand washing sink out in the dining area so you dont have to go all the way to the bathroom to just wash hands and mouth. The food is great and so is... More
