“EXCELLENT pizza!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014

We love eating here when we visit Bemidji! Have never had a bad pizza! Parking is a little scarce, but the pizza is worth finding a place to park!

“Pizza made by an Olympic Curling Champion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

We found this Pizza establishment after the 2006 Turin Olympics, learning Pete Fenson had a Pizza Place in Bemidji, MN. We decided to try it and have never regretted this decision. Great pizza. Lots of varieties and have never been disappointed with any of the pizza I have chosen. Lots of choices.

“Love this Place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2013

Dave's is a few hours away from our home but we try to make it up there once or twice a year. The Italian Combo on traditional crust is usually the choice. We first heard of Dave's during the 2006 Winter Olympics when Pete Fenson was interviewed about the curling team (they won bronze that year!). They kept asking him about his pizza place in Bemidji. Well off we went to try it out. It is not "upscale" it is just a fun little place in a neighborhood with great pizza.

Don't forget to stop and see Paul Bunyon and Babe the Blue Ox when you are done eating! They are over by the lake:)

“Entirely Overrated!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2013

Beware, this is completely over-hyped. Either there are no other good restaurants in Bemidji or Dave has a bunch of friends writing reviews on his behalf. We dined at Dave's last night based on these recommendations and the food was mediocre at best. The pizza crust was nothing special, and the cheese was overcooked, almost like the oven was too hot. Service was lacking as well. Overall - would never visit here again. Don't believe these recommendations.

“Revisiting after 15 years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2013

I went to BSU. Dave's pizza was always the best and it still is. I visited with an old professor and he brought the pizza from Dave's. It brought back good memories.
