We went to the movies next door and stopped for dinner. I had salmon which was over cooked and very dry! Hard to eat. My wife had a salad which had browned on the edges and had a terrible taste to it! Our server did a good job but for some reason they decided to clean the floor under the... More

The food was really good with enormous portions. The service was excellent, Matt was our waiter and he more than met our every need without needing to be asked. I had Calhoun's Trio, Baby back ribs, chicken tenders, hickory smoked pork all of which was very good.

Thank you to MATT for your awesome service. It was a great two year for us, and my hot wings were stellar. Your attentiveness was appreciated, and there is very much to be said for a server who keeps your glass full. We'll definitely come back and ask for you.

This is the best of all the Calhoun's locations. The atmosphere can go either dressy or casual. If you're lucky you will get Britney as a waitress. She is friendly, fun, timely and attentive. I lucked out had her as a waitress both here and at the river location and remembered her by the great service experience. Food is solid... More

Our server was friendly to all her tables except for us. It took forever to get my box and my to go order. My friends rice was cold. All in all we won't be back. A server should be friendly to everyone not just the ones that look like they will tip better. When my friend said her rice was... More

Matt is awesome! Attention was #1 priority. Food was great! Crab Bisque, Salmon, and Corn pudding are the best! We will be going back.

As expected masses of fried and BBQ foods. Fried onion rings were good. One of our party made the mistake of ordering Salmon...not the place to do that. Was very bad and was taken off the tab. Waitress was average. Very much like the other chains in this area of suburban Knoxville .Patrons were mostly families with children.

Stopped in for lunch about 2:00pm on Saturday 12/12/2015 with a family of 4. We ordered three of the Calhoun's Trios and a full slab dinner. I hate to be one to complain BUT the ribs on all the dinners were so dry no one could eat them. They were the consistency of jerky. I mentioned it to our hostess... More

We stopped here after nine on a Saturday night because it was near to our hotel. It was just what we were looking for and not too crowded even though this was a home football game night. The server was very helpful and nice though probably tired. Fish and Chips were tasty and my wife's dinner salad was well put... More
