Great Meal!

Stop by here for lunch with my family. Everyone loved their meal and the service was above and beyond any we had experience in a while. Highly recommended. Reasonably priced. We will definitely be back next time we are in the area.

Love Calhouns. As always, the food was delicious and prepared wonderfully. I had the Alaskan Salmon and my spouse had the ale sirloin.

He was the best server we have ever had! He was very attentive and even had a drink remade when it wasn't quite right, no questions asked. We had a long day and came in toward the end of William's shift, but you wouldn't know it. He was very friendly, hospitable, and personalized the experience... which made the great food... More

First off we were very excited to try this restaurant while being in town. When we first walked into the door the short African American women hostess seemed as if she hated her job and wasn't very pleasant at all. Didn't even smile. Our waitress Tyler was very nice and talkative at first until we had a handful of questions... More

Service was good. Food was okay. I have ate at other Calhoun locations that the food was much better. We only had appetizers and drinks. The shrimp appetizer was dry and overcooked. Fried grren tomatoes were okay.

Thank you for your review of our restaurant. Guest feedback is a very important tool in maintaining the high standards that have been set by the Calhouns brand over many years.

We always enjoy dinner at Calhoun's when we visit The Smokies. The ribs and Ale steak are phenomenal. The service is great, and we are always seated promptly. Well worth a try.

We had a party of 13 in our group. Another group of about 10 sat at another table not far from us in the same room. At both tables everyone was complaining about being cold; some even with sweaters on. We ask our server to turn the air conditioner down, that we were cold. As he rushed out the door... More
