Good Bar-B-Que! Calhoun's has been consistently good in both food and service. Whether it's for lunch, dinner, or just a cocktail and snack, I am never disappointed here. Greg was my server this visit, and couldn't have been better. My Blackberry Mojito was a bit heavy on the mint, but that was my only complaint. Always a pleasure to eat... More

Food wasn't bad but service could have been better. We never got any refills on our drinks but the servers did come by to check on us from time to time. The room we sat in only had 2 servers who shared responsibility of all the tables. Just not too impressed with everything as a whole. Don't get me wrong,... More

We had the pleasure of dining here on our vacation & LOVED IT!! If you are a ribs lover, you must try the ribs. Great sauce, fall off the bone tenderness! My husband had the chicken and it was delicious! If you are in Gatlinburg this is a MUST place to eat!!

A varied menu with lots of choices. The service was great, and our dinners were so, so good. This is a great choice for dinner.

If you masked your eyes and only saw the food, you couldn't tell this place from similar places like Ruby Tuesday, Applebee's, etc. Just nothing special. Similar food and pricing. Service was very good. Parking in their lot is free with a receipt. Otherwise, it is $7 so if you decide to eat there, don't change your mind after parking.

Ate at Calhoun's twice during the past week. Called ahead on Monday to ask if food contains MSG since I am highly allergic and was referred to a manager. After talking with me, he suggested that I ask for him (Glenn) when I arrived and he would double check what I ordered but didn't think any of food contained MSG.... More

She had the trout. Gotta get trout in G'burg. Butterflied, lightly crusted, perfectly done. The home run was the BBQ trio. Usually, a pitmaster can perfect one meat, or one form, but this was a trio of pork ribs, chopped oinker, and chicken tenders worthy of the name. Excellent smoke, good moisture, rib collagen was tender, but still popped.

I had the potato skin appetizer which is a must imo. They have pulled pork and cheese on them with a sweet bbq sauce. For my meal I got the ale steak which was cooked perfect. I got mashed potatoes and corn pudding with it. I was absolutely stuffed so no dessert. I've been to Calhouns on numerous occasions and... More
