His places to BBQ famously. I stopped here because I saw them listed on TripAdvisor and hadn't been to one of their restaurants for a while. I'm glad I did - it was perfect. Maybe they do BBQ even better here in Montana. I had the half-order of baby back ribs, with sweet corn and coleslaw. It was messy (four... More

This is one of my favorite places in Kalispell. Always good food and you never go away hungry. There is plenty of selection on the menu. It can definitely get busy in the summer as people know it is a great place. You can often grab a place in the bar and skip the wait. A table in the bar... More

My family was always a fan of Famous Dave's. Their cornbread muffins were a hit and so was the citrus salmon! We mostly ordered takeout because the ambiance wasn't our cup of tea. You should visit Famous Dave's at least once in your life!

Went with family to this Bbq restaurant. Food was average but service was good. I felt quality was lacking compared to other Bbq restaurants

Famous Dave's had some pretty good barbecue, but perhaps a bit overcooked for my taste. Sitting at the bar for dinner had us chatting with a very personable bar tender and getting some insight on the local community.

The special barbeque available here is very flexible to your own preferences. Not only can you choose the type of sauce on menu items (like ribs) but you can use one of five different sauces available on the table to spice up (or down) your burger. This is their signature "uniqueness" and not seen at very many other restaurants I've... More

Stopped in here after a day on the trails in Glacier. Wanted bbq so we succumbed in a chain restaurant. Would go there again in a heartbeat. Fast seating. Good server. Great tasting food. One of us had a combo plate while the other had pulled pork. Zero complaints. Zero.
