Great ribs

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... read 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.

We asked the clerk at the front desk at the Holiday Inn Express for a recommendation of restaurant for ribs and he said Calhoun's ribs were highly rated. It was only a mile or so from the hotel and we were surprised to find that it's a large, chain restaurant. Our server was excellent and the ribs were really good.... More

We were driving home from Myrtle Beach to Illinois and this place was recommended by a family member. Lorianna or ?, thank you for the... More

This was the worst service ever I have ever had. There were only three people sitting in the bar area the restirant was not busy at all. The hostess asked if we wanted to sit in the bar area so we decided we would due to the TVs. The high top tables were all dirty so we sat at the... More
