Amazing service and food! Trying to eat a decent meal with children under 5, is often difficult. The staff at Calhoun's were more than accomadating and there was something on the menu for all ages and taste buds! It is a must to when we are in the Smokies!

We have found that Calhoun's is our go to restaurant for lunch and supper. Their menu covers all tastes. The service is always on point, the servers professional and pleasant. The food is delicious and we have always enjoyed each meal. We were in Gatlinburg for Thanksgiving one year and Calhoun's offered a magnificent Thanksgiving supper. We love the atmosphere... More

My wife and I revisited Calhoun's during our winter trip to Gatlinburg. The service and food has been wonderful during our past visits and I looked forward to again having the mouthwatering Prime Rib once again. Since we were really hungry after our drive from Louisville, KY, we went to Calhoun's around 3:00 to eat. Prime Rib was not ready... More

Both my husband & I had the beef brisket and okra. Both were awesome. I think they only have okra on Wed not sure about days for brisket, but worth asking for those days of the week. Waiter was so attentive and pleasant. Overall a great lunch. Have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. This from a... More

We came here on Thanksgiving Day. Our waiter was really nice and did a good job of keeping our glasses full. The ribs were awesome! The sauce on it was great! We ordered a bottle to go! Good experience and will be back when in the area!

Outstanding flavor, soooo juicy and tender. We almost ordered extra to go. We saw the chef come out to talk to patrons at another table. They have a... More

This was our third visit and we'll be back next time we're in Pigeon Forge. Our server was attentive and food was fabulous! I had BBQ somewhere else recently so I had the chicken fingers with mac and cheese and salad- all delicious. Took dessert to go!

We have a vacation home in Gatlinburg so we are in the area on a monthly basis. We eat dinner out every night during our visits. Calhoun's used to be on our list of go-to restaurants. We have been disappointed in our recent experiences. We went for dinner the last Sunday in January. They were out of our favorite menu... More

Thank you for your review of your recent dining experience with us. We are very glad to hear that you really enjoyed the service you received so much. On the other hand, we are definitely dismayed to hear how little you enjoyed your meals. I love the pork chops too, and apparently lots of other folks did that weekend too... More
