This is yet another great Calhoun's location. My wife and I went there recently on a Thursday night after Christmas Shopping for drinks. The service was great and the food and drinks were top shelf. We have eaten at multiple locations in Knoxville, Gatlinburg and Lenoir City and this is newest and better locations. We would highly recommend this location... More

BBQ steak is delicious. If you like BBQ and steak, it's heavenly. And strawberry shortcake in season, will keep you coming back for more.

Ate here this weekend. My husband loves their cat fish. He says it is better than he has eaten anywhere !! I eat their fish sandwich, which I find delicious, and the onion rings are fantastic. Will definitely be going back.

Had dinner with friends on a Friday night. Seated quickly. Our server was very friendly and attentive. I would recommend the ale steak or the ribs, both are great. We will definitely be back.

The food was great, but when we were finished with our meal we asked for two to go containers for our food, because I had taken two bites of mine. I didn't notice, but the waitress took my plate. When she returned, I asked if she had thrown away my plate. She said that I had handed her my plate... More

Decent food and the prices are okay. They claim to have "The Best Ribs in America". Ah, that would be "NO". Not even close. Their ribs are good but I have had better in many, many places. I have had worse but they should not make a claim that bold unless they can at least come close to backing it... More

Like the ribs and sandwiches, also enjoy salad bar. Easy to find and get to. They have a drive thru which I used a lot, makes it handy to take dinner back to cabin.

Went because of the photos on here. Bread was so hard we couldn't eat it. We waited a long time to be greeted at the door. The food overall was just average at best, and it was the smallest menu I've ever seen.
