Good Food as always, very attentive and friendly staff. We always visit when in Tennessee vacationing from England it's so novel to see the fish below the outside deck coming up for the nibbles we throw. Always a good experience

The new oak ridge Calhouns is wonderful The staff were very nice and the food is good. I love the spinach with the pulled pork. I recommend if the weather permits to sit on the outdoor patio. Truly a great place to eat and enjoy the moment.

Good food and good service. Love dining out on porch. If you enjoy boat parades this is your place. Right across from marina so in summer you are treated to a boat parade. I like it best in the early evenings. We have dined as family, couple and had a Christmas party here.

Atmosphere at lunch or dinner any season is... More

This has never been my favorite restaurant, but it is probably the best place to arrive by boat and find a slip of the half dozen "boatable" restaurants on Lake Tellico and Lake Loudoun. There are at least a dozen slips for restaurant goers....but with the Tiki Hut and the main restaurant it can be hard to find a slip.... More
