Waitress was hard to understand, was seated in new addition and very warm. Food was ok but over priced.

The spinach dip and steak were great. Really good service. My husband thought the ribs were just pretty good but I didn't care for them. Other than that, I'd recommend call ahead seating

We went to Calhoun's for a late lunch and it was fabulous. The lunch special was mountain trout. Perfectly cooked. My wife had the smoked chicken and raved about how good it was. This is not just your regular bar-b-que joint.

Calhoun's was the recommendation of some folks at our hotel, and was a great choice. I was craving some BBQ so I went with the ribs. Too bad they only had baby-backs-would have like to see some spares or St. Louie style. Not sure I...More
