Nice place to relax and enjoy a meal!

Really good food! Service is better than average, but a little slow for me....... Still I give them a Very Good + rating.

Love this place as it is always packed with great wait staff and amazing barbeque! Went there twice and had the same dish, pork plate with coleslaw and the best corn pudding - great corn muffins and bisquits too! Sister had the ribs and said that they were excellent. Wine list great and margaritas even better! Second time tried the... More

Dined here with family while in town visiting parents. It had been awhile between our previous visit (wife and I dined at the river location) 10 years ago. Visit was on a Saturday afternoon. We had no wait. Service was fine. Our food could have been warmer temperature-wise. Came close to sending back my fries but they were not all... More

We were passing through on our way north and our hotel clerk recommended Calhoun's. The ribs were very meaty and the sauce was very good. My only complaint was they were a little dry on the outside from grilling. The baked potato was very good and the Cole slaw was awesome. Some of the best we have had. The portions... More

Smoked pork was very good however the sauce wasn't my favorite. I had my hopes up for the beer cheese dip since I love a good beer cheese soup. It was ok but not something I would order again. We were seated in the bar area (not be request) and the service there was mediocre. Overall a good visit and... More

Great bbq. My husband and I both had the pulled pork plate. Good portions. Food was reasonably priced. Biscuits and cornbread were yummy! The mac'n'cheese was delicious. We enjoyed our meal so much, we took a bottle of sauce home with us. Our server Mikayla was enthusiastic and very accommodating. Would definitely go back!

Ten of us frequently go to the movies and then out to dinner. After our recent great experience at the Turkey Creek Calhouns, we may always go to this restaurant after the movie. Accidently (web site error) I had made reservations at a different Calhouns. Our hostess, the manager, and our waitress treated us like royalty, prepared the meeting room,... More

My wife and I average visiting 2-3 times per week and find it to be the complete package. Food, service and value are great. Features a comfortable sports bar as well. Barbequed short ribs and fresh salmon are staples. Tasty soups and burgers as well.the wine list is adequate but not extensive.
