Our Canal Park Go-To, great lunch deals!

I'm not sure if Canal Park brings us to Famous Dave's or if Famous Dave's brings us to Canal Park.... I think it's the latter. :) We love this location and great BBQ. A treat anytime we're in town. Always good service. We go in the off season when it's quiet. Great lunch deals.

I don't know of a person who doesn't love Famous Dave's. We have been to this location a few times and love it. The atmosphere is a great experience and the food is better. They have a sauce for everyone on their wide variety of meat choices. The ribs are delicious and filling, the brisket was juicy and tender and... More

Had Dave's Revenge hot sauce and it was not only breathtaking, but was fabulous! Sweet tea was great, service was good. Had the traditional wings and ribs. Meal came with two sides with multiple choices.

Went here because our hotel was nearby (The Inn On Lake Superior) and ordered the boneless wings for about $10 I believe and there was a lot of them (I had plenty left over). The wings were so good and the staff were very nice! We will be coming back next time we're in Duluth.

Went there for my birthday and it was a surprise party for me. Yes I was surprised. Most people had ribs or brisket. This was also the first time my 2 grandsons had the chance to eat Dave's ribs. They were both a little hesitant but the youngest one caught on quick. He did a pretty good job of cleaning... More

Every time I am in town I always stop here! It's one of my favorites. My food was amazing and the staff were great as well. It is very reasonably priced and if you love BBQ you will fall in love with this place!

We got to the place shortly before closing. The staff were more then willing to accommodate and did not make us feel like they 'stayed open for us'. We were not rushed and the food was excellent.

This is typical of any Famous Dave's, but when we were there it was mid-afternoon, so very quiet. Our food was what we have had at other Dave's, but had less meat than usual. Our server was very friendly and attentive. We were seated at a booth and the table came to our chins, so we asked to move. That... More
