“Comparable to Cherokee Grill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

We are regular visitors to Cherokee Grill and love the prosperity steak there. We decided to give Calhoun's a try this time also, and were glad we did. I had the Ale Steak and grilled shrimp, which was excellent. The steak was actually very similar to the prosperity at Cherokee, and perfectly prepared. The shrimp were great as well. Others in our party had BBQ ribs and really liked them. Service was excellent. The atmosphere is slightly less formal feeling than Cherokee. Highly recommended.

“Everything was great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

We spent the new year dinner there!
The fireplace was very nice, the atmosphere was very ad hoc for this celebration.
The waitress attended was very helpful and the service can be in spanish lenguage without problems! The food was great and delicious.
The only bad point is that we waited 2 hours for a table. But it was normal, was new year dinner time! Y want return to there but when not is Holiday! Hehe

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

My wife and I had friends from Nashville and they told us that Calhoun's was a good southern BBQ. I order some pulled pork and asked the waiter if they had hot bbq sauce. He told me they only one type ( Not Spicy Hot). I was disappointed. The bones restaurant up the road in Gatlinburg had way better pulled pork flavor. I thought Calhouns was very bland and kinds burnt pulled pork. Portions were small. We haven't tried there ribs.

I would not recommend wasting you taste buds on there pulled pork. The restaurant atmosphere was nice.

“Great place to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

We eat here every time we visit Gatlinburg. We have never been disappointed in the food or the service. I wish they offered a pick 2 or 3 appetizer assortment for sharing. We had ribs, catfish and chicken tenders. All were very good.

“Pretty good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

Food was pretty good. Not the best ribs like they claim. It probably would not be a place I would return to
