Famous Dave's to Open New Prototype Store in Minneapolis

Famous Dave's announced the relocation of its Uptown, Minneapolis store, which will open in Q4, 2019. The location, opening at 800 W. Lake Street, Minneapolis MN 55408 will showcase the new prototype; a compact, modern bar and dining area, which is part of the brand's larger strategy to shift its locations to a smaller footprint.

The small setting and bar-centric environment will also feature community tables and will continue to focus on delivery and catering, which was previously a large aspect of the former Uptown location. In addition, the menu will have new food and beverage items including shareable finger foods, handhelds, grab and go options along with new cocktail and non-alcoholic drink options. The new Famous Dave's on Lake Street will also feature free parking for restaurant Guests, a coveted amenity in the Uptown neighborhood.

"The new Minneapolis location is part of an effort to give our customers more of what they want, when they want it and continue to address their needs whether that be dining in our restaurant or enjoying our award-winning BBQ in the comfort of their own homes," says Jeff Crivello, CEO.

After 25 years of being known for its full-service dining and meat-forward BBQ menu, Famous Dave's is evolving key aspects of its brand to continue to meet its customers' needs. The brand recently announced a partnership with Beyond Meat in an effort to continue its leadership in the space, by offering high-quality protein options, which will be on the menu at the Lake Street location.
