Waitress was so rude. Rolled her eyes when my husband asked for a sample of beer. Lots of flies! Ick! Food was ok. I was shocked to see a line forming as we left. I would never go back!

Smokin' Dave' is an awesome experience. Great food and excellent service. Good micro brew selection was a bonus. The food was served in big portions and was delicious!

Everytime we visit Estes Park we eat at Smokin Daves. Excellent food and service. It's a little pricey but it is well worth it.

This was our fourth time back to Smokin' Dave's in the last three years, and we haven't been disappointed yet. The BBQ is excellent; moist, flavorful, melt in your mouth good.

We dined at Smokin Dave's one evening, the food was great but the service was below average. Our server never inquired if we needed refills, additional items and she was not very personable.

The food was well worth the wait. Tried the brisket & baked beans and wasn't disappointed in the least! Wanted to lick the dish....!

We did not have a reservation, but had no problem getting in a little after the main lunch rush. If you can do a late lunch / early dinner I think you would be fine. I checked the website, but did not see an email address... More

There are a lot of options which might be gluten-free, but you would have to ask to make sure.
