Never disappoints

Always good, both food and service, Never had anything that disappointed the taste buds. This trip more of the same. Awesome pork chop and spinach Maria with a side salad to die for. Will return for sure!

I got the Ale Steak and it was delicious! I also recommend the pomegranate margaritas. Great location, very clean and actually reasonably priced. We had Kate as our server and she did a GREAT job!

After a day of not so good food choices (traveling 400 miles, first day of vacation...) I had my heart set on some type of salad. So I ordered the Southern Chicken Salad and was I glad I did. It was huge, with 5 breaded, fried chicken tenders as well as 4 fried onion rings on top. If I were... More

Wonderful environment, great barbeque, and lots of choices. Servers are knowledgeable. I found the cole slaw and the beans to be some of the best I have tasted.

The kids meal menu has soooo many activities on it that waiting a bit for our food was no biggie because the kids were occupied. The hubs and I split an order of pulled pork nachos (pork was amazing, the rest of it was ok. I prefer my cheese melted into my nachos rather than cheese sauce) and a salad... More

I wrote a lengthy review after our last visit but wanted to update a bit. We had such a good experience last time, we wanted to return to see if it was just as good, or the last time was just a lucky experience. I am happy to report, it was just as good. I had the ribs again (loved... More

Calhoun's has the best ribs I and my family have EVER had. You can buy their sauce and they have won many national competitions. When you have a restaurant that has over 200 seats, don't expect to be served in 10 minutes, But the service was excellent and the servers have always been great. My family has been their several...

Great place to eat. Environment is enjoyable and Josh is the best waiter. The Ale steak is melt in your mouth good and Pretzel appetizer.
