Canal Park Famous Dave's closing Monday, will reopen Nov. 1 in Hermantown
The barbeque restaurant will focus more on local customers with its move.
DULUTH — Famous Dave's in Duluth will close its Canal Park location Monday, pack up and move up the hill to Hermantown.
The barbecue restaurant, currently at 355 S. Lake Ave., is set to reopen Nov. 1 at 4135 Richard Ave. near Sam's Club.
As the News Tribune reported in July, the Canal Park restaurant is nearing the end of its lease and decided to move to focus on local, instead of tourist, customers.
"When an opportunity presented itself to relocate the restaurant to a new location that would be even more accessible for local Duluth residents, owner and operator Greg Toon eagerly said yes," the restaurant said in a news release Friday.
The barbeque chain opened its Canal Park location in 2002.
The first Famous Dave's opened in 1994 in Hayward, Wisconsin and grew into a nationwide, publicly-traded chain.
