After a long day of travel we were hoping that someone could deliver and Dave's BBQ really delivered. Not only getting it to us FAST but excellent food.

We stopped in for supper, the wait staff was nice and friendly and very quick to serve us and bring refills without even asking. I had a salad; was stuffed and couldn't even finish it. My husband had a sandwich plate and left very stuffed as well.

OK, its not bad, but you came up here for this? I suggest you go to explicitly Duluthian places when you come. Makes sense?

Always have great experience at Famous Dave's and we there for our anniversary. Food was ordered and came out quick. And for a special treat, we ordered a half dozen of corn bread muffins to take home

We had good food and good service here. Had a bbq brisket sandwich and it was full of flavor. Lots of meat, too much to finish. Son loved his chicken so that is always good. Would return again.

The atmosphere and service are always great here. Sometimes I find the food to be a little mediocre.

We headed there for dinner before seeing James Taylor at the arena nearby. The food was good but it got very busy in there and our food was on the cold side. Seeing as there was an event nearby that evening there should have been more staff. Our waitress was overworked.

We love this place, come every time when in Duluth. Love the mashed potatoes and beans! This time around tho the ribs were extremely fatty and hardly no meat for such a high price meal. I was disappointed only for the meat issue. The brownie was amazing too! Great service, and love being able to head over to the arcade... More
