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

If you like hickory smoked ribs this is your place. Great taste, large portion and the service was excellent. They could use a better beer selection and the wine is high priced, but if it's vacation money it is not so bad.

This was a very nice, friendly restaurant to eat at. The food was good, well presented and good size portions. The staff was exceptional. You could see that they either trained or just genuinely wanted to see all our needs were met.

We usually try to eat at Calhoun's in Pigeon Forge every time we visit the Smokies. It has become one of our favorite restaurants in the area. It's very roomy; you don't feel crowded no matter where you sit and the place just has a nice ambiance. The wait staff has always been pleasant, prompt, and attentive. On different occasions... More

Being a local, I have eaten here before... but it was definitely the worst this time. I had the grilled chicken cordon blue sandwich... The smell of it as our waitress put the plate down was horrible. I know the smell was because they haven't cleaned their grill in too long. My bacon and chicken had thick black slime on... More

Overpriced for us. Service was good. Salads were good. Have had better ribs though. Very pricy though. Could reduce their menu costs and would have better crowds, vacationers are what keep them going.
