We went to Calhoun's for a dinner date. We was seated quickly and the waiter was very attentive and professional. I ordered the Ale Steak. The steak was cooked to my liking and how I ordered. I was worried about the marinate due to not liking mustard. This steak is on point! It was tender even cooked medium well. The... More

This is our first visit here in many years. The restaurant hasn't changed a bit, so not sure if this is a good thing or not. Menu is the same, as is the decor. The food and service was good, nothing great. Our visit was in the off season, so not sure if this was a factor or not.

This has been our "go to" place for years every time we visit! Everyone is so nice and the food is amazing! Sit near the bar and ask for Luis and Lizzy, they are super sweet and helpful :) order the chicken wings with thunder road sauce. Best we've ever had. thanks again for another great visit!

We had a party of 7.. 4 adults, two 13 year olds and a 12 year old. Our food portions were perfectly plenty! Juan was our server who was running around crazy and was still very attentive with a smile on his face! Not something you see often these days! Mark from moonshiners was dining there also and made my... More

The place was nice and the waiter was wonderful. But I was really looking forward to eating ribs and, well, they were very dry. Maybe they were having a bad night!

We recently spent our son's birthday in Gatlinburg, it was our first time ever going. Most of the restaurants were great. We tried eating at Calhoun's, excited to try the ribs. Unfortunately, we were seated in the worst possible location, a booth directly behind a large table set for 10. No one ever came to greet us or take a... More

I got a salad and the portion was huge. It was pretty good, but I wish there had been an option for a half size because I didn't need the whole amount.

We went with the server-recommended pork Chops and weren't disappointed. They were delicious! The craft beer was also very satisfing.
