There was a party six and we all had ribs. They were tender, meaty and the sauce was excellent. If you don't pick the spinach as your side dish, you are making a mistake. The Mac and cheese comes in a close second.

We had a group of 9 that decided last minute to find some BBQ before departing Gatlinburg the next day. Called at 5 and got a 7:30 reservation! Arrived a little early and table was ready on time despite a packed house on a Friday night. We had a mix of appetizers and entrees. Skins, shrimp and wings as starters.... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a hotel employee where we were staying. I prefer to eat in a locally owned place rather than a chain. We were not disappointed in the service or the food. Hamburgers are freshly ground and grilled and very juicy. They served an assortment of rolls and biscuits while were waiting for our food,... More

We had an awesome server! The food was so good and the price was great. I had the fish and my husband had the grilled shrimp and the meal was delicious. We had the pale ale with our meal. Could not believe the price when we got the bill.

We were a party of 6 adults and 3 got the triple play! Ribs, chicken tenders and pulled pork. 2 of us got the steaks and 1 the ribs. Everything was delish and my son couldn't stop raving about the ribs! He said they really were award winning! Would have gone back if we had stayed longer. Definite revisit next... More

Excellent ribs, best around. We live in Ohio. Wish there was one here. Well actually if there were I might not weigh 120 lbs. Seriously, though we base our vacations around when we can go to this place. I wish they could ship those ribs in dry ice. Great service, Great food. :-)

Ate there for lunch yesterday and overall a good experience. I wanted to try the Alaskan salmon in spite of the fairly high price for a lunch portion, but was not so happy with the taste. Of course Sockeye Alaskan has a different taste from Atlantic salmon and a different look, but there was some type of seasoning on the... More

Had heard and seen much hype regarding Calhoun's award-winning BBQ. Gatlinburg is a tough, competitive BBQ market, and I found Calhoun's product to fall in the middle of the pack. I was disappointed that neither brisket nor sausage were offered. My pulled pork was very average; side dishes of slaw and mac - n - cheese were very good. Calhoun's... More

Excellent 1/2lb burgers, generous side of fries. Service was slow on a slow day (Wednesday afternoon lunch). I like all meals to be served at once; our meals were not. Good flavors, on-the-strip location, expect to pay $10 for a burger with fries.
