Good BBQ Casual Dining

Had dinner here tonight for something casual. Impressed by the range of BBQ meals which are flavorsome and the serves are very generous. The mixed bbq plates are especially good value.

Dinner at Famous Dave's was fun and the food was delicious. We ate in the lounge and our waitress was great and amusing. She took great care of us and watching her with the rest of her "charges" showed how good at her job she is. The food was good, the bill was reasonable, and the beers were chilled. The... More

Good food and great service. Didn't wait long for a table for seven. I would defiantly return. It was a little too cold inside with the a/c though.

We ordered lunch in dispatch from Famous Dave's a few day's ago and it was just so so.The beef was too fatty, but the pork ribs were really good. I also like their spicy mac and cheese.

Love this place. Ribs aren't overcooked and the rub is so good they don't really need any sauce! But if you do like sauce they have a great assortment and you have them right at your table to try. Excellent sides too!!!

I live in Kalispell and have only eaten here once. They had a c rating so just because of that I was hesitant. My husband and I went there for dinner. We ordered the bbq meal for two. It was chicken, brisquit, pulled pork, ribs, corn on the cob, biscuits and coleslaw and beans. The beans were really good and... More

Decent stop for BBQ. I stop here frequently. It never "knocks my socks off", but I always go back. Friendly staff.

When you combine great service, cold beers and quality ribs you'll get me to come back every time. Visited this place three times in a week on a recent visit to the area. Always sat at the bar...always received great service...enjoyed a good array of quality beers...tried three different kinds of ribs and fixings and liked all of it. I'll... More

My husband and I ordered one appetizer, a cup of soup and full rack of ribs to share, but that was a little too much for us. The food was good, and we enjoyed it. What we paid was about right for what we got. Service was a little slow. Also it was confusing for us to find the actual... More
