“Glass in my glass”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

Four of us went in for the "best ribs in America", and honestly, those were fantastic. Unfortunately, my first sip of my tea I sucked up a sharp piece of broken glass. When I showed the Glass that I lucky caught before swallowing, she said "oh". She brought me a new glass but nothing else was done. The prices were a little unreasonable for the food overall.

I am saddened to hear of this. I want to apologize for your bad experience. A glass shard is not something we take lightly, and had I been informed I could have better resolved the situation. I'm glad you enjoyed the food, however. If you have any other specifics about your visit you would like to share,please feel free to contact me at jchristian@calhouns.com.

“Yummy Valentine's Day Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I were in Gatlinburg for the Valentines week. On Valentines Day we decided to look for a good BBQ restaurant. We asked around, read the reviews, and were pointed to Calhoun's. my husband ordered the BBQ ribs and I ordered the pork chop. All of the BBQ are smoked and the pork chop was marinated in olive oil and spices. This is the best pork chop I have ever eaten; the chop was boneless, no fat on the edge, and was grilled perfectly which gave it a delicious taste. I love key lime pie and they make theirs homemade YUM! All and all this was a excellent restaurant with homemade food, great service, and a country ambiance for a reasonable cost. I lf we ever travel here again, we will eat at Calhoun's!

“Best ribs in America?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Best ribs in Gatlinburg maybe, but I wouldn't say in America. I've had better elsewhere. Don't get me wrong, the ribs are good and the pulled pork and the baked beans. My wife also loved the cole slaw. The value was pretty good and the service was great. It's a good all-around eatery but not the best in America.

“Great despite being close to some of the most tasteless tourist trap (Pigeon Forge) I have encountered”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Great ribs and other barbecue and excellently prepared sides. The service was friendly, personal and well timed. Great beers (although the Porter could have been a little heavier). Liked it so much we returned when we noticed a Happy Hour the next day and the wings and dips, service and beers were still super.
