“Ooh you gotta try that corn puddin'!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

We had ribs and pulled pork with cinnamon apples, corn puddin', and baked beans. The ribs were smokey and wonderfully tender. The pulled pork was flavorful and melt in your mouth tender....a must try for this place. Cinnamon apples were good too. Beans were more like BBQ beans to me than baked beans. Had a little sweet flavor, but made with pintos..may be just a regional difference. NOW, the corn puddin'......it was sweet and airy and light and absolutely delicious. Another MUST! We would definitely go again!

“What a treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

We ate dinner here our last evening in Gatlinburg, and what a treat! I had the trout which was such a treat, as we live in Wisconsin and don't often see it on menus here; my husband had the ribs. Our waitress Loren was as good as they get. Atmosphere is pleasant. Top notch exprience.

Nice downtown location. Food is always above average and a good value. The ribs and salads are always a good choice.

“Great Atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

We have eaten at Calhoun's for many years. We stayed in Gatlinburg so ate at the Calhoun's in Gatlinburg. My husband and I ordered the ribs as we always do. They just didn't seem as good as they have been in the past. The atmosphere is wonderful and the service was excellent! I believe there are better places now for barbequed ribs.

“Always the standard”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

We eat here at least once and sometimes more every trip we make here. The food and staff are always top notch. Love the spinach maria as a side.
