Ate here twice. Sat at the bar. Josh Wells served us there on our final night. Great service and very pleasant talk to. Made drink suggestions and always made sure we had what we needed. He made all his customers feel welcome. They brew beer next door at the Smokey Mountain Brewery and serve it in... read more

We visited Calhoun's on a Wednesday early evening (arrived before 6PM). While our wait for a table was very short, every other phase of dinner was incredibly slow. We waited about 45 minutes for delivery of our dinner. We were so disappointed with the meal. I had the hickory smoked chicken (1/2 chicken) which was a very small portion and... More

Calhoun's is always good no matter which location you visit. We hit the Gatlinburg location for lunch. My wife had the baked potato and I had the pulled pork sandwich. It's all good. Try it.

Our waiter was amazing. He was very attentive to our needs. The brisket and chicken salad were great. Hot rolls were to die for and barbecue sauce was awesome. We will be back

We went here with a group of 10 plus children needing high chairs. Although they don't take reservations, they do take call a heads and we were seated all together right away! Since we had all just had BBQ we each ordered either apps, burgers or something else on the menu. The pretzels and cheese were delish! So were the... More

This was by far, one of the best meals we have eaten anywhere in our travels. We both had prime rib and it was tender, great flavor and not fatty. The server was very attentive and friendly. You can smell the awesome aroma coming from the restaurant from outside and it makes you really want to go inside. The prices... More

The wait was much shorted than the hostess originally projected. Loved the variety in the menu. The service was excellent and the food was top quality.

My wife and I had our evening meal there tonight and were very satisfied. Steak was prepared just as ordered as well as the house salad requested with extra onions. We left there full and satisfied. Friendly and informative waiter. Highly recommended!
