This is always a must stop eat for us. I look forward to going in for some of the tastiest ribs around. I eat light that day in anticipation of a FULL rack of these ribs. You could order a half of a rack but that would just leave you saying? Why didn't I get the whole thing? the Spinach... More

we go to Calhouns every time we can. Love the ribs and corn pudding. Love the pigeon forge and gatlinburg locations. Their deserts are great too

Took our sons to eat here and our waitress was awesome! Very nice ambiance and my jack Daniels whiskey sour was superb! Ribs were tasty, but not that tender. My kids burgers were tasty and not overcooked, which was a bonus! Prime rib was very good. We would come again if we're in town for sure.

Went in to ask about wait time. Guy said 30 to 45 minutes, they just closed down one section. It's 7:45. I asked why and he said they were at capacity. At least 6 tables empty. Said we could sit at bar or bar section if we wanted to be seated now. So we go to bar section. Sit there... More

Every time we visit Pigeon Forge, it is a requirement that we return to Calhoun's for barbecue. We ate here twice this vacation. It is always excellent, and would highly recommend to anyone who is a fan of good barbecue and sides.

A very disappointing dining experience. Food was average at best. The floors were filthy. Staff would clean tables by throwing bits and pieces left by previous patrons onto the floor. Appeared that wait staff was overwhelmed and untrained.

Was looking for a place that offered a variety of food for the family and Calhoun's was close to where we were staying. WOW! The staff was helpful and friendly, and the restaurant extremely clean. We got steak and the BBQ, and it was delish!!! They even have local brews on tap, and I loved the IPA! The price is... More

We always spend most of our meals in TN between the Smoky Mountain Brewery, Calhoun's, and Cherokee Grill. Always consistent. LOVE their beer. And their barbecue sauce!
