Good family spot

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

Spent a pleasant evening in the large bar area overlooking the marina. Very good service. The ribs, while a little overdone were delicious, as was the Helles beer produced by Calhouns. On other occasions I've enjoyed the white been chilli & corn muffins with honey for lunch.

We have eaten there for years, prefer to sit in the bar and have a good view of the lake and the marina. Service is good and so is the food. Best known for their BBQ, half price appetizers on Wednesday. Good oysters too when from the right area.
