My husband and I had our rehearsal dinner at Calhouns on December 30, 2016. During what is commonly known as ‘hell week’, the staff and managers at Calhouns were nothing short of friendly and accommodating. We had a reservation for approximately 21 people for 5pm that evening and when we arrived, they were ready to take everyone back within minutes.... More

Calhouns is a great family restaurant, good food, always clean, and always great service! Try the southern chicken salad, all I can say is you better be hungry ( it's a big salad!)

My husband and I are fans. We love the steak Calhoun and smoked chicken. The spinach Maria is my favorite while my husband loves the baked beans. Their craft beer selection is exceptional - they have the best light beer. Our waiter was exceptional!

Real good BBQ food...would definitely recommend the fried pickle as an appetizer. It was my first time trying it & was very good. Had the pull pork, very tasty.

Have eaten here a few times. Always delicious and staff always very friendly and courteous. Sometimes a little bit of a wait but well worth it. Anyway when you're on vacation you don't mind waiting for good food.

Went with a party of 17 and the service was decent and the food didn't take long, they bring different kinds of bread while you wait which was good for tasting and sharing. The ribs were good but I've had better. Nice ambiance and good food for good price.

Thank Lilirock17
