The food was great and our server was on the ball. We always had our drinks full and food came out fast. The food was great , just the bill was a little high.

We arrived about 15 minutes before their posted closing time. There was a line but because we only had two in our party we were seated within minutes of our arrival. The restaurant and bar were packed. Our server was very friendly and professional. The only thing she missed was an appetizer that we ordered but were never charged for... More

Very few restaurants were open Christmas Day. Calhoun's was jumping - half-hour waits for a table, but service, smiles, and food were wonderful. Love that place. Good experience every visit!

Let me start by saying this place might be my favorite restaurant ever. We visit the area 3 times a year and eat here every trip....sometimes twice. I love it...never had a bad experience and recommend it to everyone I know that will be in the area. So that said, you could imagine how excited we were to eat dinner... More

Calhoun's is a "must stop" each time we visit Gatlinburg. Whether it's ribs, fish, chicken or pork, there isn't a bad dish on the menu. Staff are always friendly and helpful, and make each visit a great experience. Enjoy YOUR dinner!

Arrived at 5:15 pm, Christmas day for dinner. Told the wait estimated at 45 minutes to one hour. Seated after waiting only 30 minutes! Our server Josh was amazing. The place was hopping, but Josh not only provided exemplary service, he kept us constantly apprised of our orders' status. Husband had the smoked prime rib, I had trout, and adult... More

We ate here for lunch on Christmas Eve. Place was not busy so we had our choice where to sit so we sat near the fireplace where we could see out the window on main drag in Gatlinburg. I had the half rack of ribs and it was the largest half rack I ever had. They were good not the... More

Had a party of 7. Ordered 1/2 slab, full slab, smoked chicken, loaded potato, chicken tenders, and grilled shrimp. The ribs lacked favor and the half smoked chicken was very dry with a crispy wing. Everything else was good but nothing special. Service was friendly.

Went here for lunch and I had the fried trout. It was really good!! Lightly battered and nicely fried. It was very good and some of the best trout I had while in Gatlinburg.

My mother and I were visiting town for a few days in the off season and wanted to find a good place to eat lunch. We asked a cashier in one of the shops where we should go and she sent us down the road to Calhoun's. By far the best recommendation we've ever taken! We happened to be the... More
