“Super nice staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014 via mobile

We ate here for lunch. We ordered ribs and pulled pork. The meat was good but we weren't impressed with sauce. They need a variety of sauces. The waitress was excellent, but I can say I've had better BBQ.

“Great food even if it is loud.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

My family has been coming to Gatlinburg for 3 years and Calhouns is always a must. We love the soft pretzels with the beer cheese. However, you must try the Ale steak or smoked chicken. The spinach Maria is to die for. If you are in the area, Calhouns is a must.

“Great Ribs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014

The barbecue ribs were some of the best ribs I have ever eaten. I have been to three different Calhoun's and have been pleased with each one.

“Comparable to Cherokee Grill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

We are regular visitors to Cherokee Grill and love the prosperity steak there. We decided to give Calhoun's a try this time also, and were glad we did. I had the Ale Steak and grilled shrimp, which was excellent. The steak was actually very similar to the prosperity at Cherokee, and perfectly prepared. The shrimp were great as well. Others in our party had BBQ ribs and really liked them. Service was excellent. The atmosphere is slightly less formal feeling than Cherokee. Highly recommended.

“Everything was great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

We spent the new year dinner there!
The fireplace was very nice, the atmosphere was very ad hoc for this celebration.
The waitress attended was very helpful and the service can be in spanish lenguage without problems! The food was great and delicious.
The only bad point is that we waited 2 hours for a table. But it was normal, was new year dinner time! Y want return to there but when not is Holiday! Hehe
