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.

This restaurant is under-rated and you can usually find a table any time of the day. The staff are friendly and attentive and the food is good, not fancy but very good. The hamburgers are great! Only downside is they do not have a bar so you have to settle for some basic bottled beers and don't even consider wine.... More

The meat here is cooked with great heart. Never had a bad item here even. Cook was personally trained with Dave Anderson and is good as the old original Famous Dave's in Hayward, WI. Now that the Hayward FD is gone, this is your next best choice.

I had the lunch BBQ shredded chicken sandwich topped with coleslaw it was delicious....had to use a knife and fork because it was so big. The fries were thick cut, hot and... More
