Nice Family Dinner.

We went with our family, food was good. Not amazing. We were right next to a large party and it was super loud, which was annoying. Our server was super busy but on his game. I wish I could remember his name, because he did a really great job. Average price. Average meal. Would go back.

We had dinner at Calhoun's in Gatlinburg. I had ribs and my husband had brisket. The bbq was excellent, as were the side dishes. Our server was very friendly and promptly refilled our drinks. Dinner was served quickly. We would definitely return to Calhoun's.

One night of our stay, we had dinner at Calhoun's. We had talked about a steak all afternoon and had every intent to eat steak for dinner.

We had dinner at Calhoun's after a recommendation from a relative that loves it. We both ordered the ribs, which were flavorful but dry. The BBQ beans are a little spicy to my liking. The bread was served in the beginning and was my favorite part as it had 2 yummy rolls, 1 biscuit, an apple wheat muffin and a... More

We walked across from our hotel to eat one evening as it looked like rain and we didn't not want to go to far. My mother and I both were pleased with the food and the service was very good. My Mom says she definitely recommends the catfish!!

After reading several great things on this site, we were excited to try out Calhoun's. Unfortunately, the food was just a little underwhelming. The good: potato skins, catfish, and chicken tenders. Free parking. Attentive server. The bad: The ribs... Overcooked and dry. The sides... Too salty. Just ok!
