The cheese curds were great and so was the bbq. Would love to be back when I'm in Bozeman.The grilled pineapple was very unique and delicious!

Review №2

Yummy tasty baked beans area must! I got a large platter with half a chicken which I drenched in their fabulous barbecue sauces. Also they have some very good french fries but certainly the baked beans are a must order. My server was also the bartender and she suggested a local brew, Harvest Moon, and after three of those I must say good call. She was very attentive & constantly checking back with me so I give her a full five stars. The food overall ... well deserved four stars in my book and I would never hesitate to return to this restaurant again!

Review №3

I got the free Veteran's Day pork sandwich. Thank you for your generosity. That was the best pork sandwich I've had in years! The beans were also excellent. When COVID is over, I'll be coming back.

Review №4

My wives and I love it here! Amazing food and nice staff too! They let us in with 30 minutes left until closing, thank you!

Review №5

The restaurant was super clean. Tracy my server was fantastic! The food was good and the pickles were delicious

Review №6

Visit my parents from California and a visit to this wonderful establishment is always a must! Meat is tender sauces delicious and they even accomodated a birthday song for my sister on her Bday even though its not a corporate thing like other places! Awesome staff, delicious food what else do u need? Keep it up!

Review №7

Friendly staff, delicious foods, beautiful lodge atmosphere! Our family make a point of sharing a family feast from a garbage can lid every time we're in a town with a Famous Daves. I'm sure the other foods are equally delicious because people at other tables are happily dining their choices. If you enjoy barbecue, you'll enjoy Dave's.

Review №8

Ordered a 2 meat dinner combo to-go. Got the rib tips, burnt buttz, coleslaw, and mac n cheese. Everything tasted great. Good portions too. Burnt buttz were absolutely delicious. Cant give 5 stars because they left out the corn muffin i wanted to try :/

Review №9

Great service. The food was just OK. I had the Devil Spit burger but I wasn't very impressed. Maybe I should have tried their award winning ribs. Maybe next time.

Review №10

My food was $23, and so dry i could not pull the ribs apart. The corn on the cob was old and wrinkly. Broccoli was cold. Only warm good thing was the corn bread muffin. So disappointed.

Review №11

Loved it. The ribs were just amazing. Service was very friendly and the food came almost instantly.

Review №12

I had a discount through doordash for a pickup order and they gave me half of the food you would normally get if you were to sit down and order at the restaurant more than likely because i used a discount. They forgot all the sauces that go with what I ordered. I love famous daves food but definitely don't order through doordash. Disappointed is an understatement

Review №13

Did take out. Good service and online ordering was easy. Food was pretty good, not great..

Review №14

Food was excellent, as usual. The service was substandard though. Forgot to bring the tea immediately, no follow-up after delivering the food, and had to chase the waiter to pay the bill.

Review №15

I don't normally write bad reviews but our experience here was so terrible I think it needs to be written about. My family of 5 with three kids were seated and did not see a waitress for 25 minutes and with seeing the waitress my husband had to ask for someone to come see us. The waitress came did not apologize for the wait and did not come ask if we needed refills. We asked to substitute some food out she did not offer to comp and to top it off the ribs we received were Cold. Sad to say my first and last experience at Famous Daves.

Review №16

Wow! Great barbecue! My wife and I stopped here while traveling through and we were really impressed by the food, as well as the place. Interior design is pretty awesome too. We ordered the Feast for 2 and had extra for snack later. Too bad there isn't one of these closer to where we live, but we will be keeping this restaurant in mind when we are on the road.

Review №17

Amazing food, fantastic service. Was absolutely delicious.

Review №18

Great bartender, wonderful food and great atmosphere. Can't wait to go back.

Review №19

Great food great atmosphere. Very pleasant with inside seating.

Review №20

As full-time RVers we enjoy trying restaurants in different cities. As Texans we always miss good BBQ when we are gone from Texas. We discovered this chain a year ago in Missoula and were excited to find one here. The brisket wasn't as good as I remembered but it was good. But the sides were amazing! I definitely look forward to eating at this chain again!

Review №21

Postmates is not a customer friendly application. Do not order your food through Google, people. Please take it from a Soldier moving his family cross country. Don't trust Google to understand what is local. They told me this restaurant was local and it is 16 hours away. $67 spent for nothing and unlikely to get anything for it. Postmates doesn't afford the opportunity to cancel an order. Clicking cancel order does nothing. There is no confirmation of cancellation.

Review №22

Why would I call in a half hour ahead to order only to show up and wait another half hour? The guy on the phone told me it would be ready so that was bs. Doesn't make sense to me.

Review №23

Ordered through door dash, never got my food. Said not their problem. Ask to speak to a manager. Said he was not there. Wow!! All I wanted was to purchase food for delivery. $150.00 worth. No one cared .never got a call

Review №24

Ordered from door dash. Super disappointed when I got my food. Not only was the brisket sandwich tiny, it was incredibly dry and did not add the cheese like I requested. It was also kinda carelessly thrown into the Take-out box so half the brisket was off the bun. Mac and cheese was alright but gone in two bites. Rice in soup was too crunchy. Cheesecake was good

Review №25

The baby back ribs good with a sauce that wasn't too spicy.

Review №26

Great food. Nice enough staff. BBQ sauces are the best. Texas Pit, Devil's spit and Georgia mustard my favorites. Had chopped pork sandwich, Wilbur beans and slaw. Great flavor.

Review №27

This place tastes so amazing! The to go staff is always on point and super nice!

Review №28

Get the beer sampler. The huckleberry is fabulous. I could eat those bison burgers everyday

Review №29

I had the BBQ chicken, with green beans, and salad. The side salad was great. Our waiter Chad was awesome, and the chicken was very good. Over all a great experience.

Review №30

Excellent friendly waitress and the food was wonderful. this was my first visit to Dave's but it's certainly won't be my last.

Review №31

Friendly environment and great food. 5 stars all around

Review №32

Burnt Butz, pecan Brussel sprouts and Jenny Lake lager...yummy. Great service.

Review №33

Friendly staff, delicious food, great beer selection, fast service!

Review №34

BEST RIBES EVER!!! I loved the food there, the service was excellent! I will definitely visit again soon! If I could I would give this restaurant 7 stars! It was also very comfortable there! See you agian soon Famous Dave's!

Review №35

Loved it. We came here after a terrible experience at Ted's Montana Grill and were really happy with the delicious food, great service and prices!

Review №36

First time at a Famous Dave's. Because it's a BBQ restaurant, I thought there would be a decent gluten-free selection. They did have a gf menu, which is cool, but it was really limited. Only 3 gf sauces, no gf bun for sandwiches, and no ribs. My son ordered a steak off the gf menu, but they were out of those and baked potatoes. (I know Covid is messing with supply chains and meat processing, but still a bummer when there aren't many gf options to begin with.) My food, pictured, was reasonably good. The brussel sprout flavor was particularly good.

Review №37

We ordered to go and we didn't enjoy any of our food. It was Super cold for one thing and bland. My sausage tasted like bad meat. I couldn't even eat it I was scared I was going to get sick. My beans tasted just liked canned baked beans but super over cooked and hard . I feel like it was a Big waste of money honestly

Review №38

Great place with friendly staff and quick service. The food portions are really big and reasonable for the prices. Fast wifi is an awesome perk! Was a little turned off by the deer antler lamps - while they looked pretty, I felt uncomfortable. That's just me though!

Review №39

Nice atmosphere, good food but small portions. Over-priced for the portions.

Review №40

Burnt butt sandwich never disappoints! I had great service and good grub

Review №41

The bomb ...great food... good serviceu

Review №42

I ordered dinner at FD's online for pickup. It was supposed to be ready at 7:25. I finally received my order at 8:00 PM. There were quite a few people waiting a long time for their orders. Apparently, they were short staffed in their kitchen. The shortage of staff made them close their dining room early. The manager should done something to make it right with the customers.

Review №43

The food is excellent as well as the service. I would leave five stars but the portion size on my two meat lunch special was a little too small compared to the price I paid. The quarter chicken was tiny and the brisket slices were half the size I'm used to getting at other BBQ places. My total which was right at $20 is a little too much for lunch when I ordered off the lunch menu. on the picture you can see the size of the chicken quarter. That's a cornbread muffin to the right.

Review №44

Decently quick service for a BBQ joint. One of the better FD's I have been into: very clean and great portion size.

Review №45

An hour and.15 minutes to get food while there were 4 tables tops. When food arrived it was burnt, dry and very little meat on ribs. Jalapeno sausage was so dry even the cheese inside was crumbly. The cornbread muffin was very good. Husband got the brisket, only one slice, the top one, was somewhat moist, all the slices under were so dry, could barely eat it. Potato salad was like mashed, and flavorless. Our son had the burger and it was good. If you don't mind waiting over an hour for food that was not good, go ahead and eat here.

Review №46

I online ordered here almost two weeks ago and didn't receive half my order after paying a good amount for the meals. Not only was half my meal missing but the other half was one of the worst meals I had ever received. The Buffalo chicken salad had burnt full chicken strips on top not even diced and was missing most ingredients.. once I called the manager and let him know, he offered a full refund on the meal and said if I didn't receive it in 4 to 7 business days then to call back. So after calling again they explained I had to call postmates to get my refund once I did that they explained that Famous Daves had to give them a merchant support report and they had never received one. At the point i am so fed up with all the lies and terrible food here I recommend never coming here.... i never even got my refund back at all at the end of the day.

Review №47

It was alright ribs were cooked alittle to much but overall great service and good food.

Review №48

BBQ is very good and the service top notch. A must stop every time I'm in Bozeman. Check em out.

Review №49

This place and the food are as good as ever, and the staff is very friendly. Especially now, if you feel like going out for a sit-down dinner, please give Dave's a shot so that all the employees there know their work is appreciated and their jobs are secure.

Review №50

Very good food...never did get condiments that we requested though, so that is why they get a 4.

Review №51

Fast. Good price. Excellent BBQ

Review №52

Good for great service

Review №53

Good place and good food. Some of the pricey meals are smaller portions though.

Review №54

Ordered take-out and our food was poorly cooked. Ribs were burnt with barely any edible meat on them. Our baked potatoes were so overcooked that they were hard. My order was wrong and ended up getting chicken strips instead of BBQ pulled chicken. For the amount of money we spent I'm very unsatisfied especially for our first Famous Dave's experience. On a plus side I loved the coleslaw, beans and cornbread! Oh and the yummy ranch!!

Review №55

Great Food. Ample portions. Their corn bread is awesome and much better than Marie Callendar's.Love the decor. We were there before Christmas and every employee had a stocking hung up. So cute.

Review №56

Walked in and was told we would not be served for over 20 minutes because the kitchen was to far behind

Review №57

Ordered a door dash, they gave us no broccoli with my brisket sandwich, which was dry. Also, the tacos are horrible, the meat was mainly fat and way to much coleslaw. There was no sauce or onions on them. I would say I got about 5 ounces of fries, this was an awful experience.

Review №58

The food was totally delicious the atmosphere was wonderful. Very nice service.

Review №59

Service was great, food was fine, very clean lots of food and beer options. Great options and menu for kids

Review №60

I am always impressed when the manager is willing to take the time to be certain you can eat safely at their restaurant. While I had a positive experience at Famous Dave's BBQ. I think others with me were not so impressed. My food was excellent and brought out as I ordered it, as was all the orders, but some were not impressed with the portion verses the price. The taste of the food was great especially with the customizable sauces. Altogether still a great place to eat.

Review №61

I've had the pickles before, but never knew there was a restaurant. I saw this on the map while travelling and said... yes I must try this. The pickles are awesome and are the only ones I use for bbq's, and the food is also fantastic. I had the "Devils Spit" burger. Cooked perfectly and delicious! Recommended if you like spicy bbq sauce.

Review №62

Excellent food with excellent service!

Review №63

Great food, great service, relaxed atmosphere.

Review №64

I love Famous Dave's. It is a chain, but still find the food tasty. My favorite by far is the burnt ends sandwich. The staff are always friendly. A selection of sauces for your barbecue. Love the sweet tea. A good selection of side items. I would not necessarily put Jalapeno in the potato salad, but still good.

Review №65

Amazing beans and cornbread!! I'd have just a meal with it....the brisket was great, not the best but good and the ribs were slightly dry but had awesome flavor. We will definitely make a pit stop here when we visit the area again. I'm a huge bbq fan and have had some of the best down south. Other then slightly dry the meat is bomb and you can't pass up the cornbread and beans.

Review №66

Brisket was salty, and I am ine who usually uses allot of salt.Bread had good flavor (better than brisket)The young man at the to go counter was kind and attentive.

Review №67

Always love eating here. Staff is always friendly and the food is always good.

Review №68

Fast service, gluten free menu available, big portions, decent prices. Oh and the food tastes good.

Review №69

Always delicious, good service, nice atmosphere and COLD BEER!

Review №70

Even this far away from Kansas City, the food and service was EXCELLENT !! Always great at Famous Dave's !!

Review №71

Great food but usually have great service also. Today we were there and the waitress wrote my husbands order wrong. She fixed it but instead if fixing the receipt she just added the part left out which he ordered a 2 meat order but got charged for a 1 meat with an extra meat order which raised the price. When we told her about it she said that's how she had to do it. Usually with a mistake like this MOST places would give a discount at least but no. We have have been going to this place for over 9 years and have never had bad service before. Think we might need a new place or new management.

Review №72

Very delicious, friendly staff and clean. Plenty of food!

Review №73

Would give zero stars if I could. Ordered the Texas brisket sandwhich with jalapeño Mac cheese. The brisket was extremely dry. I understand that brisket is supposed to be dry but no sauce was added at all! Had to add ranch as I had no access to barbecue sauce ! Jalapeño Mac n cheese extremely disappointment served cold . Mac n cheese should not be served cold! Talked to manager and told them the situation and was not willing to help at all as I ordered through DoorDash and she told me it was DoorDash fault. Terrible customer service! Manager and brisket both are a complete joke ! I Will never return ! Terrible food ! Waste of money !! Paid $14 for a poor sandwich and cold Mac n cheese come on ! Only come if you like cold fatty brisket with no taste and likes to place blame on delivery drivers ! Please train your cooks on how to make brisket as recipe was very bad,and work on customer service

Review №74

Does not enforce mask wearing and social distancing. Food lukewarm.

Review №75

Excellent food and service. Outstanding BBQ. Thanks.

Review №76

Like maybe dont completely trust me I'm only 14 but this place is honestly great my family is Hispanic and I'm part Hispanic and I loved it they have from sweet all the way to spicy (I'm bad with spicy food) and you overall have a fun family time. We've come back here multiple times

Review №77

Awesome awesome food! The St Louis ribs are crazy good. Highly recommended.

Review №78

Great waitress and food!

Review №79

Portions were small,out of quite a few things on the menu

Review №80

Great barbecue and some of the best burnt ends around. I was excited to eat here since my famous Dave's went out of business in my hometown. The wait staff was great and the food was delivered fast. I like the various selections of barbecue sauce. And wait staff and food is very fast considering there were two buses there as well. I will definitely come back the next time I am in town.

Review №81

Great food waitress!

Review №82

Large portions, real good Bbq., cool place!

Review №83

Great bar bq and great service

Review №84

Overall good but not great. Some of the meat was a little dry but tasty. The service was great and very nice. It was reasonably priced.

Review №85

The rib tips were delicious! Very tender and so good! I especially loved the cornbread muffin!!

Review №86

Never had a bad meal here. The 1/2 baby's with the Memphis rub were spot on. The only little gripe would be the meager portion of fries served. But maybe I just had a big appetite.

Review №87

Great staff. Cooks do a great job. Very amazing experience. If you ever have a chance to speak with the GM, hes a great man.

Review №88

Ordered through door dash. Our chicken strips were way over priced for 4 tiny pieces, one side was forgotten and the caesar salad lettuce was old and gross. We spent way to much money here for it to be this disappointing.

Review №89

Not my fave bbq but good portions and fair prices. Also great staff.

Review №90

Fun atmosphere, great tasting food at a good price point.

Review №91

Great food, sadly no whiskey, I really do not understand this Montana liquor law.

Review №92

Great food we enjoyed it thank you

Review №93

For some reason my review didn't go through so retype lol. This place was awesome. The staff was kind and friendly, I don't remember the waitress we had but I don't think our cups didn't make it to a 1/4 full. The food was seasoned very well and wasn't just drowned in sauce like most BBQ places tend to do. Prices are good, portion sizes are big. I recommend this place to everyone who ask where's a good place to eat. Keep up the good work!!!!

Review №94

Great place for family's, large portions, and tasty food with great staff!

Review №95

Kind of spicy but, it was super good and I'm glad I went. I did love all the different barbecue sauces they had to offer.

Review №96

Amazing ribs and cornbread. We got the platter for 2 and were not disappointed.

Review №97

Absolutely delightful restaurant in which to eat! The food is prepared well and served hot. Excellent waiter and waitress service!

Review №98

Great service! Great food!
