Got the Hickory Smoked Beef Brisket sandwich which was very good. Large sandwich. The BBQ sauce they serve with it was a bit too bitter for my liking. I subbed in the Calhoun's famous sauce they keep on the table, which was a bit sweeter and to my liking. But overall, I loved the feel of the restaurant and surroundings.... More

Calhouns ribs are a smoky delight! My husband & I split a full rack of ribs platter for lunch. The smoke grilled flavor and the right amount of sauce made it easy to devour the tender, meaty ribs. The platter came with slaw and 1 side and a basket of assorted bread/muffins. The fries were hot and crispy and well... More

Better than any roadhouse for steak and ribs. Very busy recommend if going to reserve ahead. Totally worth it!

Based on the reviews, we were looking forward to a dinner at Calhoun's and were very glad we did stop here. Staff were friendly, the menu was comprehensive and the atmosphere was family friendly. Calhoun's is known for their ribs and that's what we ordered. The ribs were delicious as were the side dishes. Would definitely recommend and suggest planning... More

Our hotel recommended Calhoun's and it was within walking distance. We shared a meal of 2 grilled pork chops and got another side. We were stuffed and the chops were delicious. Will eat here again if in the area.

Came in for lunch had the Ale Steak which is a sirloin with garlic butter and cooked with Cherokee Red Ale. As we know sirloin is not the most tender cut but this was good. The flavor was great. Over all I would get again, as usual. The Spinach Maria was wow! The mashed potatoes were good but nothing to... More

Many great reviews and a full parking lot....this HAS to be the place to go......that was our thinking, and those two things, crowds and reviews seldom let you down. But unfortunately this time it did. For my taste several of the steakhouse chains do a better rack of ribs, heck even I do a better rack of ribs at home... More

We decided to try this restaurant because of the great reviews.. To be honest, no one in our party of 6 was overly impressed. The service was good, the waiter was friendly, but the food was average. The macaroni and cheese was decent but my ribs were tough. We come to the Pigeon Forge area every year and will not... More
