The Original Famous Dave’s


UPDATE: It saddens us to say, on Monday November 3 The beautiful Original Famous Dave’s burned down. We don’t know what to say except… we will be back… we will rebuild… and we will continue to smoke great ribs for our customers. Thank you for your love and support.

offers an outstanding northwoods barbeque dining experience on the shores of beautiful Round Lake. Walk in and you’ll see smiles, antiques, collectables, cookbooks, and rustic log architecture.

You’ll get to taste our award winning slow-smoked St. Louis-Style Ribs, Texas Beef Brisket, Country Roasted Chicken, corn bread muffins, coleslaw, campfire beans, and lodge! Our menu includes more than just barbecue. We also feature a variety of garden fresh salads, homemade soup and desserts, and incredible sandwiches. Home of the Best Sunday Brunch in the Northwoods!
