I used TripAdvisor to find a restaurant to go to for a group of friends vacationing together. I picked Calhoun's based on the reviews and menu options. The food was good, the wait staff we had was great. I had issues with management. I made reservations 1-2 weeks beforehand for 17 people. When we arrived they, had it down for... More

Seventeen of us ate at Calhoun's on a Thursday night. We were seated immediately and had excellent food. Our waiter did a great job, and our glasses were always full. The ribs were excellent, as were the salads and the corn pudding (although, not real sweet as I had expected.) The atmosphere was comfortable and inviting. All of our orders... More

We enjoyed lunch at Calhoun's the week of Thanksgiving. My wife and I had eaten there a few years ago and we were very unhappy with our meal. To our surprise, we enjoyed one of the best meals of our stay while in the Smokey Mountain's. My children enjoyed their meal as well and that is saying a lot. We... More

The food is great. I particularly like the Wednesday Night Special of Beef Brisket. Yum Yum! My wife really loves the Oriental Salad. The prices are reasonable and the service and atmosphere are just fine. We look forward to eating at Calhouns every time in Gatlinburg.

While on the Parkway in Gatlinburg, we decided to eat at Calhoun's I wanted a nice burger and my wife a grilled chicken salad in a comfortable restaurant and we were not disappointed.

Our group of 13 made reservations in advance for Thanksgiving day and enjoyed a traditional Thanksgiving feast with Smoke Turkey, Cornbread Dressing, and all the other fixings. It also came with Pumpkin Cheesecake which was so delicious. The meal was beyond our expectations and the service was top notch. Highly recommend!

Calhouns is a must go place when in Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg. The ribs are my favorite and the coleslaw is a great pairing. My daughter got the grilled shrimp on skewers and they were amazing as well. Definitely will go back again and again.

To be honest, the ribs were good, but not amazing. My wife ordered the sirloin and I thought it was fantastic. We had a very sweet waitress and the manager came over to check about our experience which was nice

Calhoun's has always been our regular stop when we eat out in Gatlinburg. Service is good and their prices are fair. Portion sizes are large and plenty with everything we have ever ordered. I had their appetizer Prime Rib Quesadilla at $10, I had to search for the Prime Rib! It was overspiced and had very little meat in it.... More

First time to dine here and I was not disappointed with the food, price and service. The pork rib barbeque was sooooo goood. Their fish and chips is extraordinarily good. We will surely dine there again.
