The restaurant is on the marina and sits right on the water! Fantastic view. Try the Fried Green Tomatoes! They are great!

We came by boat with some friends to enjoy a nice late afternoon lunch. We were very disappointed in the service and professionalism of the staff. Our server was more interested in hanging out by the bar and socializing with all the other servers than taking care of guests. We had to ask for silverware, plates, refils etc. I went... More

We enjoy going to Calhoun's on the lake for the buffet they have on Fridays. It is expensive but we do this as an occasional treat. The buffet is stocked with several meats and a number of vegetables. There is a salad area with lettuce salads and pasta salads and even fruit. They offer only one or two kinds of... More

We vacationed in Lenoir City for my husbands family reunion and one to the day's all decided to go to Calhoun's as and night out! The service was excellent and food was out and fresh! Family friendly and the outdoor dining is a special treat on the lake.

We have eaten here several times and continue to go back because we like the informality and the view over the marina. We went on a busy Thursday night right before July 4. The service was very slow. This was even before the 100 guests who were eating in the covered porch. We were never offered water refills or other... More

Poor bar management by only staffing bar with two bartenders, and one was very inexperienced and overwhelmed with the little bit of traffic they saw. Should have know there was an issue when there were open seats and tables at the outside Tiki Bar, but I thought I'd try getting a drink before heading to the fireworks. When I approached... More

Great scenic location adjacent to a marina on the lake. There for lunch...my mom and I split a combo platter since the portions were very generous. Nice waiter, but not busy. Pulled pork good, ribs just OK...Tenn. restaurant chain that I might try again...

Had a great early supper with my favorite guy. We arrived before the restaurant re-opened for the evening but the staff were awesome. They offered to set us up with drinks until they were ready for supper guests. We sat out on the deck overlooking the water and fed the fish and just enjoyed each others' company. The waiter kept...

We ate there last week. My wife and I split a full rack of ribs. The portion was large and there was plenty of meat on the bones. The problem was that they were over cooked. Very dry. I was not impressed with the bar-b-que sauce either. The meal was just ...ok. I'll give this place another shot in the... More

We had a large group and the restaurant never dropped the ball. Good food, great water ambience, the staff was a-tentative and very accommodating with changes and special requests. There is good reason why reviewers have rated Calhouns #2 in Lenoir City. Rascal Pants and Sweetie
