We stopped here for a late night dinner on a Friday night. There was no wait which is why we picked it to be honest. The ribs were good, a little dry but they give you extra sauce so no worries. I had the hand breaded chicken strips and they were awesome! Try the apple bread and the corn pudding...trust... More

Friday evening at Calhoun's is one of our favorite dining experiences in Knoxville. However, our visit tonight was a letdown. Service was barely average, poor really, and we hope not to experience that on next visit. Food was great as one of dined on their Smokehouse Salad with Cheddar Cheese dressing and to be honest, this may very well be... More

After dining at the river location of Calhoun's, didn't anticipate dining here, but a different group and different night and here we were. The other location is scenic and nice outdoor spot, but did not have the best keel on food. This location is the opposite story. The bar and restaurant area is more typical of this type of restaurant,... More

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.
