Absolutely delicious. I had the steak and shrimp combo. Shrimp was bland but that steak OMG!!! Cooked and seasoned perfectly. My husband hand the BBQ chicken and enjoyed it just as much. Best dinner we've had out in a long time.

Calhoun's is a reliable place to dine! This is a step down from the Cherokee Grill, but is open for lunch Monday through Friday...while Cherokee Grill is not. We enjoy the specialty beers and soup and salads in this location! A bit loud, but service is great!!!

The service was friendly and the restaurant had a nice atmosphere! There was no waiting to be seated! The food was just okay! I like my steaks rare and that usually doesn't affect the texture but the steak I had was a little chewy! The spinach Maria was very good!
