Famous Dave's used to be a stand-by of ours for dining out. We frequented the Dave's in Fairfax, VA, and once we moved to Annapolis we were delighted to find one off West St. This Annapolis area Dave's isn't as good as the Fairfax one, though.
We've tried dining-in and carrying-out at the Annapolis restaurant, and carrying-out was definitely the better way to go. The meal was served hot, service was pleasant (all you have to do is pay the cashier) and time spent waiting for the meal was relatively minimal. However, when we ate at the restaurant, we had the same number of persons eating with us, but the service and wait were significantly less acceptable. In fact, we ended up with a poor experience as far as service goes for the dining-in. My advice: go ahead and order on the phone, pick it up and eat at home.
It's not a particularly kid-friendly place, either. We have two little ones - they ended up walking around the outside of the restaurant while we waited.
On the up side, the Bar-B-Que was delicious. :)
