The BBQ was okay and the sides were okay but not the best I have ever had. I guess they don't really smoke there meats for a long time, but the place was packed so i guess the folks in Knoxville like it, not bad but I wasn't blown away. The location is outstanding though right on the river and they do have a deck outside where you can hang out and watch the river roll by. Real nice location nd pretty good parking.

Calhoun's on the River is a good place to take your out of town guests. You can rely on good food and with the river just outside the window, it is a great ambiance as well.

If you're looking for great southern style ribs and a warm friendly atmosphere this is the place for you. Prices are reasonable and the service is great.

It was very crowded due to the George Strait concert, but we waited it out and had a very nice dinner. Even made the concert on time thanks to the taxi driver.
