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.

When we come up to Gatlinburg, we make it a point to eat at Calhoun's twice! They have the BEST potato skins with pulled BBQ pork on them...you really can't get any better than that appetizer. The Ale Steak is our main course...it's so flavorful and cooked to perfection every time. Our service has been excellent every year but our... More

Best steak I've had in a long time. I asked for medium well and I got it. Even the baked potato tasted better than a regular baked potato. 5 stars for sure.

We always eat here when we are in town. Love the pretzel bites or the BBQ stuffed potato skins. Staff is helpful and friendly.

Had the trio and she had the teriyaki chicken.... Nothing really stood out about Calhoun's just reminded me of a decent chain restaurant but great service
