Famous Dave's has something for everyone -- ribs, brisket, pork, etc. Most meals come with 2 sides and corn bread. Go for a combo where you can get two different meats. I had ribs and brisket and both were very tasty - moist, flavorful meat. Five or six sauces to choose from and a good beer selection on draft. Lots... More

We have been twice to Kalispell and we have gone to Famous Dave's both times and we just love it! Their family meal, served with a bit of everything, is just delicious! The brisket and corn bread are our favourites!

We had lunch there and it was fantastic. Famous Tina did a great job waiting on us. The food was great. Had a couple of bad visits a while back, but the issues seem to have been resolved. Great news because their BBQ is fantastic. One of my favorite stops in Kalispell (and any place else that has a Famous... More

We loved this restaurant!! The service was great, and the food was too!! There were gluten free options available, which was needed in our group. We enjoyed this place and would definitely go back!!!

We chose this restaurant because it ranked highly on Trip Advisor (for dinner), but were quite disappointed. The portions were small, food not very tasty and some of the condiments so spicy that they killed our taste buds after the first bite. I am sure there are better choices than this one

We went here for dinner during our stay in Kalispell this past weekend. The food was absolutely amazing! The brisket and the roast chicken were probably the best ones we have ever had, but unfortunately, the food itself, did not make up for the poor, indifferent service. Our server did not check back on us often. It took forever for... More

Awesome service and great good... You won't leave hungry or disappointed. The selection of BBQ sauces at the table was really interesting and flavourful. The interior decor was extremely tasteful and in keeping with the location. Would recommend it for everyone.

Had just arrived in Kalispell and found Famous Dave's. Had never experienced this franchise (none in Atlanta) and found this to be a fantastic choice for dinner. Food was excellent and the service was tremendous. Would definitely return when in the area again.

The title says it all, the ribs were "melt in your mouth" and the BBQ pork was to die for. The only problem us tourists had, was the damn GP:S could not find the place. But once we were there the 30 minute wait was worth it. The server went out of her way to ensure the whole experience was... More
