“Great Service-Food Quality Lacking”
Review of Famous Dave's

Famous Dave's
Ranked #22 of 92 Restaurants in Grandville
Cuisines: Barbecue
Restaurant details
Reviewed 10 July 2018

The restaurant was not very busy for a Sunday noon. Our waiter was only on the job 2 days but was excellent. The pulled pork sandwich was very fatty and not very good. Fries were way over salted. The 1/2 chicken was dry. Will try it again but on a different day and time as this place has a fairly good reputation for good food.

We stopped for a late lunch at Famous Dave's. Cute decor and friendly service. The mashed potatoes were good and the brisket and pulled pork that were ordered were also good, but not exceptional. We have experienced much higher quality and better tasting barbecue in the Holland-Zeeland area.

The casual atmosphere is quirky yet at the same time old-time southern familiar. Hands down the BEST BBQ around.
Server's always upbeat and even the side dishes, including the large Corn Muffins are so good!

We were shopping at Rivertown Mall and decided to get something to eat. The Famous Dave's in our area closed so thought it would be nice to go there to get something. Our server Brandon was pleasant, cheerful and very helpful. We decided to share the Appetizer Sampler and split it as he had told us what all was in it. It was more than enough for two and delicious - a good choice.

We've had pretty good take out, but dining in was not so great. In a town with tons of local craft brews, they had nothing except chain stuff. Really a shame. No veggies that aren't bad for you either. But the BBQ is pretty decent.
