Good Food, Great Service

When we arrived on a Wednesday evening, we were seated immediately. Being on a low carbohydrate diet, I found the menu to be limited as almost every item was either breaded or basted in Bar-B-Que sauce. I was disappointed that they did not offer a dry rub option for their ribs. I had the Pork... read more

We got to Calhoun's late at night 10:06 and were seated and taken care of just as if we were there in the middle of dinner time. Our waitress was helpful and polite my meal the grilled pork chop was excellent. There were no refills on the strawberry lemonade that was a bummer but the waitress told us up front.... More

My husband and I stopped here for lunch. My husband ordered a cheese burger and I ordered nachos. The waiter brought us our food and left to go to another table. We had no silverware or ketchup on our table. So we had to wait till we could get his attention. Food was good at first until I got a... More

There was 9 in our party and we were seated quickly. The restaurant seems to be set up in a way that allows for bigger parties. I got the 1/2 chicken over rice and it was excellent!! Another perk is the parking. You can park in the lot behind the restaurant free of charge if you present a receipt. It... More

We ordered ribs and prime rib. Both were perfectly prepared and wonderful. Side dishes as well were excellent. Freshly brewed beer and ales were superb! Service as well was fast and staff friendly. Make time to visit on your trip to Gatlinburg!

Calhoun's menu sounds like a great place to come for dinner. We took a party of 10. Service was ok as was the food. I do not recommend the beer cheese. Coming from Kentucky that has the finest beer cheese, this was more like beer cheese soup and was probably made with Velveeta. It was ok, but not what we... More

Excellent prime rib!!! Wonderful smoky crust, and done to perfection. Husband had a salad, so huge even he couldn't finish it off. Service left a bit to be desired, but this was atypical of previous visits to this establishment.

Although there was a lot of people coming in at the time we arrived, we had great wait staff, great food, and we loved the stone fireplace near our table. The serving sizes were quite plentiful as well.
