We sure loved this restaurant, nothing like good BBQ, but this was not just good, it was great. The cornbread was my husbands favorite!

Famous Dave's is always a reliable place to eat, assuming you like BBQ. I usually stick with the pulled pork, but this time I had the BBQ chicken. I wasn't disappointed. Service was good - their credit card service was out at the time, so they had to go "old school" and and run cards through manually. It didn't seem... More

We have eaten at Famous Dave's about 10 times over the last several years. They recently moved from Branson Landing to the center of town.

Good food for the price. Branson landing is a great place to visit when you are down that way. A lot of shop to look at and the lake is nice to walk around

We went near closing time so things were a bit "off." The catfish was cold and so were the beans. That said, this is still a terrific place. The BBQ and sauces were yummy. The cornbread was heaven. And even if cold and soggy, the catfish tasted great. Our server was the sweetest guy ever. And did I mention the... More

We were disappointed in our BBQ. You are paying a premium for eating on the landing and its not worth it. Try one of the other restaurants on the landing. The food is expensive and the BBQ is very unimpressive. The only thing it had going for it was a waterfront view. On a nice day you could enjoy the... More

Been here a couple of times now in Springfield, Missouri and in Las Vegas, Nevada with the kids. Just average BBQ; nothing to write home to Mom about. I love ribs so last time I ordered a full rack of ribs. Very little meat on the ribs and the end pieces had NONE. I showed this to the Manager (this... More

We took a large group here last winter and it was (almost) warm enough so we ate outside on the deck. We got some gigantic BBQ platters that were served in what looked like trash can lids!
