Yummy barbecue in Duluth.

Famous Dave's is located in Duluth's wharf area. This neighborhood is worth a visit and so is Famous Dave's. The food is tasty and the portions are huge.

My wife had a fantastic salad, my granddaughter and youngest grandson had the usual chicken fingers, one grandson had the hamburger while myself and the... More

We love BBQ and Famous Dave's, even though it's a chain, is one of our fav's to eat at. Food is always good, staff good, and prices are not too bad.

The food is of course typical Famous Dave's fare, which I happen to love even if it is a chain! The location is great: in Canal Park, and an easy walk from most locations in Canal Park. We walked from our hotel (Canal Park Lodge). Service was really good, and prompt. We got our food much quicker here than when... More

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.

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.

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.
