“Nice break in the day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

My wife and I visited Calhoun's after a nice hiking venture in the park. We got in immediately, had great service, and enjoyed their premises-brewed beer. I especially like the Appalachian Ale, which is a nicely hopped pale, good enough for hop-head. My wife enjoyed their white sangria. Servings were very large, and we were both so full that we never even had room for dinner.

“EXCELLENT ribs!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

The best ribs in Gatlinburg, and probably the cutest waitstaff (and very friendly!) Icy cold Corona. GREAT twice baked potatoes.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

When in Gatlinburg, we always eat at Calhouns at least once. The steaks and BBQ are the best. IMHO, the steaks are the best in Gatlinburg at any price. The prices are very reasonable. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Next time you are in Gatlinburg, try it. You will like it!

“Good fish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is right on the main drag, and was very enjoyable. I had fried fish, and my husband had chicken. Both meals were very good, as was the service.

“Lots of Options”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We like to come here with a group, when visiting, because there are lots of options on the menu, the atmosphere is nice, and the service is excellent. We have eaten here frequently since 2000 and the food is always good. One thing-if you don't like the table where you are seated-request a change. If you see an open table you want-ask for it. Some areas are more attractive, in my opinion, than others. Also, go early or later & avoid the peak meal time.
