Good BBQ!

The three of us were in the mood for BBQ and thought this would do the trick. We were right. We all ordered the pulled pork and were beyond satisfied. I ordered mine with fruit and potato salad, they were both very good. On the table are a variety of sauces designed to cater to individual taste. I... read more

We have been to this chain many times in many different states and the Montana branch certainly did not disappoint. We went there for dinner last Sunday evening and our food was exceptionally tasty fresh and well prepared, highly recommend this restaurant if you like barbecue

First stop in Kalispell as recommended by friends. Let's start with service. Friendly, helpful and not phased by dietary restrictions. The service alone is enough to recommend the lounge. I had the catfish fingers (soy friendly), great flavours and would recommend sticking with the lunch portions as they are plentiful. Rest of table would recommend the rib tipsy do brisket.... More

This restaurant has a wonderful location that made it easy for us to get in and out of. The restaurant was very clean and the service was great. Our food was amazing and we were in and out quiet quickly.

Excellent food, hot fresh and very delicious. The prices were fair and the portions were good size so much so that I saw... More

I've had the pleasure of dining at Famous Daves several times when hungry for great BBQ. The food is always good, great service and they are always busy. If your hungry for great BBQ., be sure to give Famous Daves a try. They cater also. Might want to think about allowing them to Cater your next event to make it... More

Famous Dave's must be famous for something other than barbeque, because theirs just isn't very good. Have been there multiple times and left disappointed every time. It's not even on my radar anymore.

The restaurant is nicely decorated, you would expect better food. Mt wife's chicken dinner arrived after a considerable wait burnt absolutely black and dried to the consistency of a boot-sole. The waitress agreed that it was inedible and replaced it after another long wait in which I had finished eating my meal. My wife was fuming by the time we... More

I'm told Famous Dave's is a chain, but I'd never think so! We had pulled pork with all of the fixings. Seriously good grub! Absolutely nothing to complain about. Good, fresh food. Great service, friendly folks. I cannot wait to go back.
