Awesome Food

Great quality food in this restaurant! Simply delicious fair with a great selection to choose from. Obviously a popular venue as it was very busy, notwithstanding this, the service was fast and efficient. Definitely worthwhile a visit if you're in the area.

After having loved Famous Daves in the past, we were sorely disappointed this visit. I am partial to the burnt tip sandwich; did not realize their recipe had changed to "jerky" and borderline I edible. It could not have been a "favorite" if I had not had it often in the past... Don't let the name fool you. The Mac... More

We had a big group of about a dozen people here for lunch today--- and we all enjoyed our meals. Service was VERY slow, unfortunately, but it was Saturday about 1 pm at their peak. Quality food and decent prices for good old fashioned barbeque!

Excellant!!! Took my sisters and niece here for their first experience at a Famous Dave's. The waiter, Braiden, was great! They couldn't say enough about the tender, delicious meat and good food. We shared the Bread Pudding and brownie dessert (had to try them both) and as Braiden said, the bread pudding was outstanding!!! Thank you again Famous Dave's. This... More

Talk about a turn around. We ate at Famous Dave's when they first opened up in Billings and they just couldn't get anything right, service bad, food poorly prepared, staff very unfriendly and not comfortable with the menu. I swore we would never eat there again. Just so happened my men's group had a dinner there and the food was... More

Speedy and friendly service. The food was really good! The brisket was not as good as what we've had in the past but otherwise we were very pleased.
