My wife and I had dinner at Famous Daves, and had excellent meals. The service was very good, the food came out quickly, and was very tasty. The interior decor provided a nice "down home" atmosphere.

Met a friend here for dinner, even with the pandemic going on the staff went above and beyond to make the experience fun.

It was a busy night in Duluth with waits at every restaurant. I'm gluten free and my daughter is vegetarian so this did not seem like a good option but it certainly was! Our waitress was great even though they were crazy busy and we...had a wonderful meal! I asked for just a chicken breast with grilled pineapple and that was delicious! My daughter felt there were great options for her also! Will definitely come back!More

We ate here on a rainy Thursday evening. It was only okay. We generally love Famous Dave's for a dependable delicious BBQ and the food was adequate. Maybe the last time (before this) we had an extraordinary meal at a different Famous Dave's. Anyway, I'm...not rushing there again.More

When ever we are in Duluth we always stop at Famous Dave's. They great you with a friendly smile and make you feel welcome. We bring our grandkids--they love the food also. Especially the loaded baked potato. We order several things plopp them down in...the middle of the table and everyone shares. Can't wait to go back to Duluth.More
