Stop in at lunch on Wednesday or Friday for the buffet. Lots of selection. This is where my family goes to celebrate special occasions. We enjoy the food and the view, as it is right on the lake.

We came by boat on a summer holiday. We had family in from out of town. My wife suggested that we eat at Calhoun's. I was worried about how crowded it would be. It was very crowded, we did find a dock to tie up with little problem and were seated in short order. Our food came out a little... More

Shrimp were overcooked, very tough. Ribs on the dry side, tolerable if drowned in bbq sauce. Nothing at all outstanding about this place.

Date Visited: Saturday, August 23, 2014 Pros: Great view, good food Cons: A little expensive I have eaten here before but its been quite a while.

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
