I've actually eaten here a few time before this experience, but every trip produced a happy customer. I had the two-meat BBQ platter and it was delicious as usual. I can always count on a good meal when stopping at Famous Dave's in Kalispell. The service was also wonderful with a super fast and friendly waitress that kept our drinks... More

I ate there while traveling for a business meeting. The food and service was very good. The baby back ribs were delicious. I would definitely eat there again. The prices are reasonable, and you get a lot of food.

Delicious ribs--St. Louis style and burnt ends. Broccoli was cooked perfectly (who knew broccoli would be exciting at a BBQ place). Excellent service. Had to go back next day for more.

A casual, fun atmosphere. Not for the serious gourmet types, but great for the family. Pretty good ribs (and other Western style dishes) and lemonade.

I've eaten at this restaurant several times and the thing that always impresses me is that it is consistently good. Nothing amazing mind you, but comfortable food. I had the smoked and grilled ribeye last night with 2 sides of mac and cheese. Perfectly cooked and seasoned. It comes with friend onion strings and 2 sides. I almost always get... More

We liked Famous Dave's so much that we ate there three times during our days in Kalispell. Famous Dave's is a superb go-to place because it is open late and will serve you a meal as late as 10:00 or 11:00 depending on the night of the week. Given NW Montana's late evening sunset in the Summer--I think the generous... More

Went here expecting some top notch "Q" but left a little disappointed. DW had the pulled pork sandwich and the meat was fatty and salty. The fries seemd to be fresh cut, but could have stayed in the frier another 2 or 3 minutes. They were kinda wimpy. I tried the brisket, and while it wasn't terrible, I've had much... More

We really enjoyed checking out Dave's infamous BBQ sauces... Devils Spit is pretty good but if you want something that will really set your mouth on fire you need to try Wilbur's revenge. It's not on the menu so you gotta ask for it. The service was super friendly and quick and they certainly cook some awesome ribs and steak.... More

Tasty back ribs, good portion, full slab was enough for the wife & I to share. Friendly, efficient staff, reasonable price.

We had dinner at Famous Daves twice while staying in the area. Charming rustic atmosphere. The servers were helpful and easy to find. The St Louis ribs were the best I have had. Try them with grilled pineapple!
