After driving past many of the dozens of restaurants in Turkey Creek, we decided to try Calhoun's based on its welcoming appearance. During the ten minute wait for a table (we thought it would be worse at 7 on Sunday night during the AFC playoff game) we ordered drinks from the bar. My martini was perfect, but the house red...

We have dined at Calhouns often and are never disappointed. Excellent food, good service. Each time we have been part of a large group and waiters have always been very accomodating. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

On every monitor at every server station in the restaurant is the slogan, "Why would we ever tell a customer NO?" However, many servers either can't read or haven't internalized what the ownership of this restaurant is trying to convey.

We love the entire group of Copper Cellar restaurants and love spending money with local businesses. This time around we were pretty disappointed. We had reservations and when our party of 7 arrived they did not have a table for us and wanted to seat us in a booth, we would not fit. After a short wait they pulled two... More

Food is always great, can't go wrong with anything on the menu! One tip is to ask for a side of Cheddar Cheese Dressing with your bread basket. Use it to dip your bread and prepare to have your mind blown! Wings are amazing as well if you like a sweet & spicy sauce (they call it "Thunder Road Sauce").

We enjoy eating at Calhoun's on the River. Very pretty during daylight and especially nice at night with the lights shining on the water. The food is consistently good. Some of our favorites are the trio platter, breaded chicken tenders, prime rib (tender & cooked to perfection), and of course the bar-b-que (pulled and the ribs). Great appetizers are the... More
