“Average, service poor!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Food was okay, not terrible but not great either. Service was not very good either. We will not be going back, with all the places to eat on the strip, when the food is average and service is poor there is no reason to!

“Try the hickory smoked prime rib”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

absolutely mouthwatering with a hint of smoked hickory ... We opted to try a different restaurant rather than coming back to Calhouns later in the week. We should have come back to be treated as guests rather than be served screaming insults and chewy ribs at another establishment. Next time, we'll come twice to Calhouns.

“Ya gotta try the hickory smoked prime rib.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Mouth watering yummy goodness. We had the option of trying another restaurant or coming back to Calhouns. We opted on the other restaurant. Next time, We're coming back here to be served like guests before we get yelled at and insulted at Dick's.

“A very good place in Gatlinburg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

We decided to stop here during the trip up and down the strip of Gatlinburg (which we're not overly impressed with >>> kinda the Myrtle Beach of the mountains) for lunch. I had chicken white chili and fried green tomatoes while my fiancé had chicken tortilla soup and a BBQ sandwich! Both soups were excellent esp on a blustery damp day! The fried green tomatoes were very good but the sauce didn't add much too it (a honey mustard with paprika) like I'm used to. The BBQ was really VERY good!! The service was excellent and the large open fireplace in the restaurant was quite nice!

I'd certainly eat here again but I understand there's a location in Pigeon Forge and that might be a good option to avoid the traffic!
