Calhoun's is one of our must go to places when we come down to Gatlinburg, which is usually once or twice a year. I get the meal that comes with the pulled pork, chicken tenders, and ribs. My husband gets the ribs. And then we share. The mac n cheese is good, the corn puddin is good. I don't care... More

the wait staff is the best we have encountered in Pigeon forge this week. the steak and shrimp was very good. the steak cooked to order the shrimp wood fired was a little dry / over cooked. the mashed potatoes were also a little dry. the Tennessee Corn Puddin’ was very good. a fine meal.

We liked the variety at Calhoun's. It had good salads and seemed to be clean and well run. Our waitress was real sweet and attentive. We'd go again.

When we gather the family here from across the country Calhoun's is a local restaurant all vote to visit. It's impeccably clean with beautiful decor. The food is good and consistent. The "ale"dishes never dissapoint!

We always eat here when we come to Pigeon Forge, the food & service are always great. I always get the BBQ steak and my husband always gets the ribs. Their barbecue sauce is the best! I love their cheesecakes as well, but anyone with nut allergies needs to be careful since the crust for their cheesecake is made with... More

If you are looking for good food this is the place! We arrived on Friday night and were extremely hungry. We had a short wait, but it was worth it. The food was very good and the atmosphere was excellent. We will come here again!

Our family visited on a Friday night. Our service was great, and the food was very nice. I do believe it was a little more expensive than it should have been. The bread offered choices, which we really liked. My preference was the biscuits. I had the prime rib, which was great! If you like smoky flavor, this is your... More

I love the Calhouns in Gatlinburg but not this one so much. Service was kinda slow. Steak was WAY undercooked. I ordered it medium and it was charred on one side and almost raw on the other. My son ordered a burger and he couldn't eat it said it tasted burnt. Told the waitress and she apologized but no offer... More

The ribs were the best I have tasted in a long time. They were lightly charred, but the meat stayed moist making the meat tender, providing excellent flavor.
