Food was average. Service was sub par ( not attentive, missing items,charged for item not provided). Ribs were tasty, but that's about it.

Tonight my husband and I had dinner at Calhoun's and we both decided to have ribs instead of steak like we usually do. They ribs were great and so was the spinach Maria. The food came out fast and was very good. Our server Travis was great and made sure that we were well taken care of while we were... More

We came here as it was reasonably recommended on trip advisor. The food was average, nothing special and there was nothing stand out that would make me recommend this to anyone else.

They do not take reservations, but they do call ahead seating. I called at 5:00 pm for our call ahead seating in 1/2 hour and was told we could not be seated until 8:30.

We were in Gatlinburg for the day, needed some lunch. Too hot to walk through whole "honky-tonk" main drag so we found this place open. Waitress was pleasant, food was good.

Stopped for lunch in the middle of the shine/beer/wine tastings. Nice atmosphere, food is pretty tasty and priced ok for the area. Their sign outside said "Best Ribs in America", they're good and all, but would not say "best".

Having tried a number of restaurants in Gatlenburg we liked the look of Calhouns. However it is a large restaurant and the service was at best average. The food followed this trend and was fairly average. We both ordered the ribs, and they were at best overcooked, and at worst burned.

Thank GerryUK1947
