I was part of a group with advanced reservations on a Thursday night. It wasn't even high tourist season, and yet, we had an incredibly long wait for our food. I admit that there were a lot of people there - which explains the wait - but anytime somebody calls in with a reservation for a group of 10 or... More

This was my first experience with Famous Dave's. I've been told that some people love the place to death. I tried the chopped pork sandwich with slaw and Dave's mac & cheese. They were delicious. Dave's Devil's Spit sauce made everything taste even better. Our wait-person was great.

We had a wonderful meal of brisket and Saint Louis ribs. The corn and cole slaw was very good as was the muffin. Server was friendly and attentive.

A friend and I stopped here for dinner before a show so we told our waiter we were on a time constraint and he was on point with getting us all set up and out the door on time. We ordered the sampler appetizer plater and sides of potato salad, grilled pineapple and fries. It was a lot of food... More

We love Famous Dave's and eat here as often as we can through out the country. In Duluth, they might want to step up their game a bit. There are so many other restaurants that I would recommend before eating here. Which is not normally the case. Just sort of bleh. Wine selection was poor. Meat was a bit fatty.
