We have been to Calhoun's in Gatlinburg several times and have never been disappointed! The wings are among the best I've had and the ribs are fantastic as well. It is always busy, but the service is up to the challenge. Portions are plentiful and we always end up taking some of our meal home. They don't take reservations, but... More

The service was good but the food was just average and very overrated and overpriced. They claim to have the best ribs in America. Ah NO! They were good but no where near the best ribs we've had. The portions could have been a little bigger for the price they charged. Probably wouldn't go back there are just to many... More

I had seen good reviews on line and sought out this restaurant on a recent trip to Gatlinburg to celebrate my husband's and my birthday. The service was good and the pretzel appetizer with the mustard sauce was very good. My husband got the chicken salad sandwich with fries and I got the prime rib sandwich with steamed broccoli.

We had a very good experience here. The food was great, and so was the service. The BBQ sauce has more of a vinegar flavor to it than I'm used to, but it was still good. The pretzel appetizer was delicious!

The food was amazing, the service was great. We walked right in with no wait on a Friday night. I had the pulled pork platter. The smoked pulled pork was some of the best BBQ I've had ever. The mac and cheese is amazing and so is the col slaw.. My husband had the kicker burger. He also agreed it... More

I took my wife to this restaurant while in town visiting and was expecting a pretty decent meal based off their 4 star rating but could not have been further from the truth. My wife and I both ordered the filet minion (all other steaks are marinated in olive oil, mustard and something else that sounded nasty) and thought that... More

One of our usual stops in Gatlinburg. It is the same company that owns the Brewhouse so expect similar menus and beverages. There is nothing really fancy about this place and it doesn't come cheap, but there is a lot of room, a comfortable feel to it, good parking, and your family can eat a big meal after a long... More

Me and my husband LOVE steak a lot. We're very hungry and just picked the first restaurant we can find a parking, but surprisingly the best steak we ate in Gatlinburg. Our steaks are perfectly cooked (medium well). Their bread was awesome, Our waitress was very very good, (Sorry I forgot her name) Very good experience, we will come back!!

We had our heart set on pizza at The Brewery but when we were faced with an hour wait at 8:00 p.m. we opted for Calhoun's. I must admit my hopes were not too high as I thought it would just be your typical mass produced food establishment but much to my surprise we all enjoyed our food very much.... More
