Loved this one! We were visiting the area for a Mastercraft Factory Tour and were looking for a unique place to eat. This definitely fit the bill! Good food, friendly faces....on the water!!

We were hoping to come via our boat. Decided not to as rain was forcasted. Never had a drop. Anyway, we met our good friends and had a great dinner. Nothing like good drinks,good food and lots of laughs. We like eating in the bar area as the view is beautiful.

We love to eat Calhouns. It's my husbands and my favorite place. We like any of the locations but do like to sit out on the deck when it's cooler outside. We love the ale steak garlic rolls and salads!

Calhoun's announces that they have award-winning BBQ ribs. That is quite a stretch. I've eaten there many times and have yet to eat any "award winning" ribs. If you're going to Calhoun's for BBQ ribs you may want to look elsewhere. The food is OK and the view from the deck is nice.

I liked the cocktails we had on the patio overlooking the marina. I had the barbeque trio and found it okay at best. I believe the waitstaff needs training. It was hard to order additional libations, wrong food plates came to the table and the restrooms were dirty

The service was okay as was the food; nothing special. Lots of families and a bit noisy for my taste but the view on the balcony would be nice in warmer weather.

Our friends took us to this Calhoun's by the dam. The views of all the boats was surpassed by the quality of the food here. Our friends always take us here for meals when we come visit. They eat here all the time. Our meals were excellent and the service was splendid......

I have eaten at this restaurant several times but lately the food has not been great. The ribs I had on this visit were very disappointing. They tasted as if they had been in the refrigerator for days. I've had better ribs in many other area restaurants. In addition, our food arrived at the table only lukewarm and the server... More

Really enjoyed our meal. Good service and good food and good drinks. The spinach side dish was delish! As was the pork chops!
