Loved the unique side dishes, including the corn pudding, & the creamed spinach. Fresh breads were also very good. Kids menu with more variety than the usual chicken nuggets/hamburger/macaroni & chess options. They brag about their barbecue, but it was just ok, nothing spectacular. We ate at Calhoun's twice during our 5 day stay. Easy walking distance from the Inn... More

I always avoided this place because of past reviews and I couldn't have been so wrong. This place was awesome. In the busiest time during the Car Show at 6pm on Friday night waited 10 minutes. The place was packed. We had a great server. Food was awesome and reasonable. The bread was awesome. Food came quickly but they didn't... More

My lovely bride and I enjoyed more food than we should eat, but we ate it all! Pork plate is half a plate of pork, plus sides. Half rack of ribs is half the pig, well maybe not but a huge portion. The mac-n-cheese is awesome as is the corn pudding. The ambience is comfortable and upscale. Our waitress was... More

We were there on a Sunday, mid day. They had a smoked prime rib special that was excellent. I have never had a bad meal at any of the Calhoun's locations

Stopped here on a whim - it wasn't one of the places we checked out in advance of our vacation. I am glad that we stopped in. I had the sampler (chicken tenders, ribs, pulled pork) with baked beans, and I added an additional side of their mac and cheese - and I am glad that I did. It tasted... More

This is the first visit of more to come. The service was really good & prompt. The BBQ ribs were nice & tender & really good. We were there during the rod run so it was a busy time but we didn't have to wait to be seated & our food was not long in coming.

Having lived in Knoxville for 10 years, I am no stranger to Calhoun's. I absolutely love their BBQ and usually make at least 2 or 3 visits every year when we come down. They even have great chicken tenders, catfish and a MUST HAVE Tennessee Corn Pudding. Don't ever pass up a trip to a Calhoun's. This trip I had... More
