Went for lunch after seeing Famous Dave's products sold at home. Average food & service. Can't say I'd go back.

This was my first time at any Famous Dave's, and I was thrilled upon walking in the door. I love a beautiful lodge, and that's exactly what they had in mind. Right down to the seat cushions, light fixtures, huge rock fireplace, art work, vaulted ceilings and knotty pine walls it is classy rustic. My daughter who is a steak... More

On a return trip from the Deep South (February 2016) my wife and I decided to check out famous Dave's again. The first time around the service was top notch, and in my opinion the food was above average(Uncharacteristic for a chain restaurant). Second time around,eight months later, same scenario. Outstanding service, and superior food.(Again uncharacteristic for a chain restaurant)... More

The whole meal here was fantastic. The ST Louis style ribs, pecan brussel sprouts , and mac and cheese were all delicious! This was our favourite meal in Kalispell.

Although this is a chain restaurant, we've found the quality can vary widely. This Famous Dave's won't disappoint. Pleasant staff, good food at each visit.

Went for a day trip to Kalispell MT for a bit of shopping and stopped at Famous Dave's Barbecue and we're very glad we did! Generous portions with a great down home feel with baked beans, corn bread muffins, garlic mashed potatoes and coleslaw as well as delicious BBQ'd ribs. Can't wait to return!

Just stopped in because if it's convenient location. First visit to Famous Dave's. Oh my goodness...it was lip-licking' good stuff!! Great service and great food. The Burnt Ends appetizer was a meal-in-itself. After that, couldn't finish the 6 St. Louis rib dinner. Still licking my lips after I've left the restaurant and will absolutely be a repeat customer.

We came here being recommended by some family members while visiting Montana, we were a table of ten, the waitress serving was brilliant, pleasant and nothing was too much bother, we ordered the all American feast which when arrived was delicious! Well worth buying when going with large groups! Would definitely come back here if visited again!

Famous Daves BBQ Kalispelle Montana is a rustic chain restaurant with a pub on one side and a restaurant on the other. With a log cabin feel, outdoor and hunting decor makes for a Montana experience. I had the Cheeseburger with famous fries which was perfectly done and tasty. My wife had the Pulled chicken sandwich with pecan roasted Brussels... More

We have eaten at over Famous Dave's before although the first time here. The location is convenient off of highway 93. The building is relatively new and looks good inside and out. There's an outdoor sitting area with a fireplace which would be fun on a cool evening. Our food was great, the drinks cold and the service was very... More
