Our hotel recommended this Ribs place and we all experienced an excellent meal. The inside decor was very nice and gave us a comfortable feeling. Service was also very good.

Went here last Friday night, very busy with what seemed like 2 wedding parties, but we were waited on and served timely. Food was wonderful. Liked that they had a good variety of different things to choose from. We've been several times while visiting Knoxville and will return. I do believe the menu is different if you dine outside.

I was a skeptic, considering I was raised on West Tennessee (Memphis) BBQ, but Calhoun’s came through with some of the best ribs I have had in a long time....that is excluding my own :-). The restaurant had a great feel to it and was a great place for dinner out with my wife. We both enjoyed our meals and... More

After a hot evening at one of UT's football camps this hit the spot for three hungry boys and a thirsty man. The local brewery next door at the turkey creek location hit the spot. Very pleased.

First of all, the burgers and sides were delicious. So what was the problem? Service! We went to this restaurant around 7pm during the week. Let's just say our patronage did not seem appreciated. All that the staff at that hour seemed interested in was getting cleaned up and closing for the night. We were treated coolly, it took forever... More

My wife and I discovered Calhoun's almost by accident a year ago. We now stop in each time we are going through Knoxville. The food is delicious. The service has always been very good. There are very generous servings of food. And yes, the next time we are through Knoxville, we do plan to stop again and enjoy that "Taste... More

So, the fried catfish, baked beans and creamed spinich was great. The chicken and ribs were just ok. If you want sweet pies then this will serve you well too. The service was pretty slow, forgot a couple of drinks twice and was just not very sharp, although they were friendly.

Some friends and I gathered at this restaurant for drinks and some "munchies" while we discussed some business. I was pleased when our server said that the restaurant had onion rings. I LOVE onion rings, but not the ones that were delivered to me. The other items on the menu may be excellent, but the onion rings most definitely are... More
