Calhoun's is a local chain known for good barbeque, ribs, great sides and very good country style desserts. Service is good and the cost is reasonable.

We had great food and service at Calhoun's. The pulled pork is delicious and the ribs are great. Never any room for dessert. The view is fantastic. They make a killer Mojito!

We continue to return to this Calhoun's for its Superb Personalized Service and meals! Gen Mgr Wing Wong is the Best and is exemplary for the staff who, as our server described him--"Amazing!!"

Great food, especially the buffet! Pulled pork and ribs are top shelf, none better in the area. The service is good too, they take excellent care of you without "hovering" over you.

After the AU/UT football game, we went to Calhoun's to watch the LSU-AL game on one of the several TV's that they had in the room overllooking the lake. The service.. including accomodating our move to different tables .. was excellent. The beer selection was also excellent !...

The BBQ ribs here are the best! The Long Island teas and margharitas are also wonderful. The fully loaded stuffed potatoes,, mmmmm they make a meal theirselves. The Mac and cheese, very good, baked beans, delicious. Corn pudding, not so fond of. Everything else... Great!
