Went here with some friends for dinner. We all had the ribs dinner and thought it was great! I would come back here anytime.

Last week we vacationed in Gatlinburg. The trip was wonderful. The first night the hotel recommended Calhoun's as the place you had to eat at. I had the Trio platter and my wife had a rack of ribs. We are from NC and know good BBQ. This was not it. The meat, especially the ribs was so tough you could... More

Located towards the end of the strip and so worth the walk! The steaks were delicious and the staff was friendly.

We had a great experience at Calhoun's. The food was great, but our service was even better. My husband asked for help selecting one of the beers and Adam our waiter was very knowledgeable about the beer - he knew more than anyone at any of the other places we had eaten. His recommendations were very much appreciated and enjoyed.... More

I had seen this place several times but had never gotten a chance to try it. We tried it during our last trip and it was really great for the price. Most restaurants in a tourist town are fairly expensive but this place was much cheaper and still great quality and very friendly staff!

Calhoun's has been a favorite of ours for years, so we went over for a late lunch when we arrived in Gatlinburg today, August 31, 2014. The appetizers, White Chicken Chili & Rocky Top Potato Skins, were wonderful as always. Our main course came, Chicken Tenders & Oriental Chicken Salad, and we dug in. My wife was very happy with...

We were seated immediately; however, it was downhill from that point on. Our waitress was so loud that it sounded like she was yelling at us. The grilled shrimp was tough, & not very flavorful. The rice was bland. The barbecue pork plate was mediocre at best. The only thing that we both enjoyed was the Mac & cheese. We... More

Food was very good and waiter was attentive, friendly and helpful.They are known for ribs, but in-fact, we did not choose ribs. Fish & chips were good, encrusted trout was very good, daughter enjoyed her salad (think it was the Turkey Creek salad). We were seated quickly and the restaurant had the perfect ambiance for us - casual and nice.... More

When my husband and I travel to Gatlinburg, we always eat at Calhoun's. The food is always delicious and service is great. I enjoy eating the "Ale steak" which has a delicious flavor and is tender. I had mashed potatoes and Spinach Maria as my sides. Both were wonderful. My husband had their barbeque for the first time and said... More
