We always look for a locally owned restaurant when travelling. Calhoun's is in a unique setting right a the river. We enjoyed our table on the deck but were disappointed with the service. The appetizers were really good. We found the pork to be dry.

Calhoun's on the River does not take reservations on Game Day. Please remember also, there is a parking charge which is refunded if you move your car before kickoff.
