Calhouns has a few locations in Knoxville area and are most known for their BBQ (all forms), but their menu actually has a good variety of dishes that offers something for most anybody. We had catfish and pork chops, which were done right. For desserts, we had key lime pie and pumpkin cheesecake, both rich and packed with fresh flavors.... More

This is s very nice family restaurant. The food is good but the ribs, spinach Maria and White Bean Chili are especially good. Calhouns is a nice place to go with family to relax and have a nice meal together.

Calhoun's is a local chain with 4-5 local sites, all well managed and hygienically run. Dray (no spelling error) was an excellent waiter who attended our every need, and even recognized us from our visit there about 10 days ago. Try their $5.50 Monday burger days, although their beef brisket (sandwich or meal) is also great. Hard to believe that... More

Calhoun's is one of our favorite restaurants. We frequent all of their locations! Tonight's meal at Calhoun's Turkey Creek was a great way to tie up the weekend. The food was superb, as always. Service was excellent! The manager, Jason, and our server made us feel like family and we can't wait to return.

In town for Tennessee homecoming. It was our first time at this location. We chose to take one of the tables in the bar area so we could keep check on the scores as we sipped our drinks. The beer selections are limted as they are committed to marketing from a local brewery that is actually adjacent to the resturant...the... More

We were in the restaurant around 8pm after driving 7 hours. Our waitress was great and attentive. She recommended the prime rib which my husband loved. I got the ribs and they were good as well. My kids got the burgers and they were BLAND and I would not recommend. We did tell our waitress and she offered free dessert... More

We came in for brunch and were given the option of their normal menu after stating we had never been here. I personally had the BBQ trio with spinach Maria and Tennessee corn puddin'. The spinach Maria was very different, but amazing. The corn puddin was the best I've had. The entire experience was a 5 star. Our waitress Alexis... More

Had a great brunch at Calhoun's Turkey Creek. Food was unique and tasty. The food looked good and tasted better but deserved more care in presentation to really soar. Alexa was just adorable as our server. So friendly and helpful. Will definitely frequent this place!
