Great food, friendly service

The food at Famous Dave's in Kalispell has never disappointed us - the service was fast and friendly. We sat at the bar and were not too impressed with a customer two seats down from us who kept watching Facebook and YouTube videos at full blast on his phone. We thought the bartender should have... read more

They have the best BBQ in Western Montana and Northern Idaho. Always busy so you may have to wait but it's worth it.

First off, if you go to a chain restaraunt expecting everything that they serve you to be incredibly inspired, then you are misguided. This place is a good example of good food, with excellent service that you can count on. Good to be in the lounge with your buddies, or in the dinning room if you need a larger table... More

Enjoy your meal in a beautiful facility that has huge dining room(s) and cozy bar. We enjoy the ambience of the sports bar area.

We go out of our way to find Famous Dave's BBQ in the Great Northwest, this time, Kalispel, Montana. DH had the brisket sandwich which came with hot links and fries and I had the Georgia pulled pork sandwich which came with fries and hell-fire pickles. Always great service by the local college age servers.

We enjoyed dinner here several nights while we were in Kalispell. The brisket and chicken were both delicious, and the craft brew selection was excellent. They even had some winter brews for a seasonal selection. Service was very good, both for dining in and take-out. We did both. Typical wait time for take-out was 20 minutes, so we called in... More

The best thing about a restaurant should NOT be its decor. It is still lodge-like and inviting but the service and food were very poor the day we went. The waitress was very uninspired, just putting in time for a paycheck I'd say. Other tables were waiting around for their checks and beginning to roll their eyes. All of our... More

The St. Louis spare ribs were delicious! Also had the baked beans and garlic mashed potatoes. So delicious! Good southern food in Montana!

Nothing really to get excited about. It's just ok...but the real disappointment for me is the Mac and Cheese. Who puts jalapenos in Mac & Cheese?! Don't get me wrong, I like spicy food...but not when it's supposed to be comfort food such as Mac & Cheese. The BBQ is just ok...nothing to write home about. They have so much... More
