What a grand dining experience. We were greeted right away by the hostess. We sat indoors with the view of the Tennessee River.Just a wonderful view. My husband and I traveled with our two children from Asheville, NC. We had the grilled chicken sandwiches. Delicious!...More

Great experience! Cassidy was a delight. The beer was ice cold and the fresh bread was hot. I had house salad with the garlic peppercorn dressing my favorite it was the perfect start to my meal. Very satisfied.

My family is difficult to deal with and she handled perfectly. Even after sent back meals and multiple extra requests she was very friendly. Her hard work and patience deserves a wonderful parking pass to support her fellow Vols. Please give it to her

Calhoun's on the river has the best bartender/server around, Jackie..... She's quick and efficient. The deck is the best place to sit and enjoy food and drinks.

You can sit out on the deck or have a quiet drink inside at the bar... It's your choice!

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.
