Love Calhoun's atmosphere and food. Always good and fast friendly service. The way southern food should be.

We had a birthday party here. The food was typical "southern" food: fried chicken, creamed corn, cole slaw, baked beans, cinnamon apples...and you could pick either corn bread muffins, or a biscuit, but you couldn't have both. Go with the biscuit. Overall, our kids barely touched the food and we ended up making them hotdogs later that night.

The staff was very accommodating but the food was nothing special. My husband ordered the hickory smoked pulled pork sandwich and it was just a plain dry sandwich. I ordered the wings which were decent but nothing spectacular. My sister and nieces got the Oriental salad which they said was good. It's a big restaurant and able to accommodate big... More

We dined at Calhoun's last October and made a return visit on this trip to Gatlinburg. We were seated promptly and had a great server who got us drinks right away. My wife and I each ordered the 7 ounce "Ale" steak that comes with 2 sides. We shared a salad with the honey vinaigrette dressing, yummy. The steaks were... More

I had ribs, corn pudding and bakes beans. It was so good! and I was so happy that cornbread was served with all meals! Service was great. There was a wait, but there was also a wait for everything else around there. Glad we chose this place!

This was our first visit to Calhoun's in Pigeon Forge and we were not disappointed. They tout the best ribs in America and given to each their own taste, we could not agree more. My wife and I both got the half rack of ribs. They were prepared perfectly, meat that fell off the bone, the sauce was very tasty... More
