This is one of my family's favorite places to eat, whenever anyone comes to visit they insist we take them here. It has great food, with a wide verity of sides and very friendly staff.

I have eaten at this eating place several times over the years and am always pleased with the food flavor and and menu selection. They also serve very cold beer and other beverages to the customers. The menu has a great selection of sandwiches, salads, side dishes and appetizers.

Coming from Texas where we are spoiled for BBQ choices, our meal here was pretty average. Not bad but not extraordinary. We came in late in the evening so that did not help and that likely caused the brisket to be on the dry overdone side. Ribs were better. Still we did not go hungry!

We were in town for one night and got a recommendation from our hotel concierge that Famous Dave's is our best option. We were staying across the street, so we gave it a shot. Never had better BBQ baked beans! They were fantastic, asked for an extra side. The BBQ chicken was juicy and hot. Our waitress was very attentive... More

I did not find this to my liking but other people may love this experience. It is a chain and I have never eaten at the others; thus I have nothing to compare it with. It was too messy and the noise level was too much for me. The food was o.k. but again I went because the other people... More

I love going to Famous Dave's but was very disappointed this trip. The music was too loud. I asked them if they could turn it down and they did, but as we ate we noticed the volume starting to climb. This was an early dinner, About 4pm, so not many people were in the restaurant. The music was very intrusive.... More

If you love barbecue, then this is a great place to eat. Plenty of food and at a good price. It seems this is a western food and barbecue seems to be the favorite food for this part of the country.

Stopped in while visiting from PA. Lunch I'm vieit. Food was great. No wait for table. Less than half full dining area yet waiter not as attentive as should be let alone with no lunch crowd. Had to ask and then wait for lemonade refill, had to wait for check, had to wait for change. Food came timely and warm... More

Sat us right by the door, it's 14 below... Waitress was great! That's where the praise ends. Beef brisket was dry and tough. They think everything needs spice. Even the grilled pineapple had "Cajun seasoning." (Which we asked them to leave off and they didn't.)

Perhaps best for true meat lovers. Not great for those who don't want big slabs of beef. Heavy, artery clogging options mostly. Typical chain type restaurant with nothing unique. Several nice places to try in the Bozeman area which are way better. Skip a visit to Dave.
