Great BBQ, love the tips (food). Everything we have tried has not disappointed. Try the Bread Pudding, oh yum! The décor is like sitting in a lodge with good food all around. Friendly atmosphere, and you don't feel rushed. All around enjoyable.

very good ribs and chicken BBQ. Try a tall beer with a rack split between the two of you, that is far more than we could eat.

Large portions...go hungry. Also, ask how hot a sauce may be or what's in a side dish so you're not surprised when your mac and cheese arrives with jalapeno pepper bits, or you want to squirt on a sauce which is on your table. (The mac and cheese is not really hot, but not something I anticipated.)

Our server showed very little interest in serving us. Had to ask a different server to get us more water. The brisket was tough and fatty. They did bring us something to replace it, but by then the others at our table had already finished eating

Well, my husband loves the pickles, and he is first in line whenever they are available in Costco in the mega jars. We decided to order the "feast" for two to three people!!! Before bringing the feast our excellent waitress brought us two to go containers stating that we would likely need them....she was correct....next time I would order that... More

Good day. We went to your restaurant based on the good review online. When we came, we were seated immediately. When we were seated and looking at the menu and waiting for our sever, we noticed that the booth on our right and table on our left were being served drinks and entertained by their respective server and no one...

We usually stop at Famous Dave's at least once a year for a quick lunch when we are shopping in Kalispell. This time I had to send the salad back because it looked like it had been sitting around and the lettuce was browning. My husband had the rice soup and sandwich that he said was okay, The portion of... More

Aside from the awesome food that came in large portions, we really loved the restaurant's rustic decor. I would have ordered the decors along with the food if these were on the menu. Service was quick and friendly. We went home with leftovers since the kids could not finish their huge orders.

Have never been to Famous Dave's Barbecue before. The food was great and the selections were numerous. The building was unique, made from hand cut timbers it appears, then varnished, it was very attractive. The waitresses were friendly and knew the menu very well.
