“Great Location, Great Food”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

Calhouns is right on the strip of downtown Gatlinburg. It has wonderful smoked prime rib on Fridays and Saturdays, great bbq and ribs, wonderful Cherokee Ale pork chops, and a large selection of delicious sides. The breads are biscuits, corn muffins, and garlic rolls. The salads are also very good!

“Food and Service was Great”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

Ate there three different times. Had pulled pork, ribs, and Prime Rib. All three experiences were great and I wanted to try something different each time to see if the food was consistently good. I was not disappointed. Our waitress, Kim, was absolutely fabulous, and the other two waiters were great too but I can't remember their names. Prices were good and portions were good. The spinach maria is something that everyone should try - if you like spinach. Just go, relax and enjoy and remember you are on vacation in an area where southern cooking and BBQ are a way of life. Congrats Kim on your upcoming wedding.

“Very Poor Food with Good Service and Beer”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

Visited on 4/11/12 around 4:30pm, seated immediately. Moderately high prices but: Ribs - tough, dry and not much meat; Grilled shrimp - small and fishy tasting; Filet mignon - small (thinner slice than typical, maybe 3/4" thick) and tough; Wings - very little meat. Good staff, nice atmosphere and good beers from their affiliate Smoky Mtn Brewery salvaged the 2 star rating.
