The Calhouns's in Gatlinburg has great atmosphere and is always busy. The ribs are the best around and are meaty and flavorful. The spinach artichoke dip is a great starter.

Food is always great, can't go wrong with anything on the menu! One tip is to ask for a side of Cheddar Cheese Dressing with your bread basket. Use it to dip your bread and prepare to have your mind blown! Wings are amazing as well if you like a sweet & spicy sauce (they call it "Thunder Road Sauce").

We enjoy eating at Calhoun's on the River. Very pretty during daylight and especially nice at night with the lights shining on the water. The food is consistently good. Some of our favorites are the trio platter, breaded chicken tenders, prime rib (tender & cooked to perfection), and of course the bar-b-que (pulled and the ribs). Great appetizers are the... More

Mackenzie was the server for our table of 10 and she was awesome! Very attentive. Food came quickly. Biscuits just out of the oven were delicious. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Will definitely be back!

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
