I was looking for a restaurant to host a couples wedding shower, so checked with the Calhouns at Turkey Creek in Knoxville, which has a separate banquet room. I was pleased by the variety of options available, and selected a family style luncheon for our party of 18. I thought it was very reasonably priced, and a relatively low minimum... More

Went here with friends from area. Had prime rib and it had no flavor and had lots of chewy parts you couldn't swallow, I would think for $23 that it would have been better. I had the green beans and they were horrible, mashed potatoes were good and salad was good. I guess I just ordered the wrong think because... More

Hope this is the right location. Great and cheap bloody Mary. Loved the fried green tomatoes. Sandwiches were okay. Sides were very good beans and corn pudding.

Calhouns is a casual restaurant serving BBQ items and beer from their brewery next door. We were not really hungry so my wife ordered white chili and a frozen margarita while I had fish and chips with a AP pale ale. The food did not knock off our socks, but it was ok. I was told that their ribs are... More

I know that they are both owned by the same company, but the hostess' at Calhouns are very rude. We had a party of 10 come in today and ask for a table. They told us at first that it would only be a moment. Then they came back and said it would take some more time. 45 minutes later... More

This was my first time to Knoxville and my friends told me I had to try Calhoun's. I was not disappointed. We were greeted by very friendly folks when we came in, our server was great at her job and our food was delicious. This place was incredibly busy on a Friday night but seemed to run like a well...
