We were a party of 6 adults and 3 got the triple play! Ribs, chicken tenders and pulled pork. 2 of us got the steaks and 1 the ribs. Everything was delish and my son couldn't stop raving about the ribs! He said they really were award winning! Would have gone back if we had stayed longer. Definite revisit next time though!

Excellent ribs, best around. We live in Ohio. Wish there was one here. Well actually if there were I might not weigh 120 lbs. Seriously, though we base our vacations around when we can go to this place. I wish they could ship those ribs in dry ice. Great service, Great food. :-)

Ate there for lunch yesterday and overall a good experience. I wanted to try the Alaskan salmon in spite of the fairly high price for a lunch portion, but was not so happy with the taste. Of course Sockeye Alaskan has a different taste from Atlantic salmon and a different look, but there was some type of seasoning on the fish or either it was just not good that I had to ask for something different. I never like dealing with management over such petty issues, but the manager was not so bad and although a bit defensive about the quality of the Alaskan salmon freshness, he was good about taking care of me and letting me chose another item (Chicken cordon blue sandwich - very good!), and even new added sides, so I was overall impressed with that. Also, the view there is great and the bartender could not have been better, and was nice to everyone there, going out of his way to mention things to customers to help them out. I would definitely give it another try later, but maybe not for the Alaskan salmon.

Had heard and seen much hype regarding Calhoun's award-winning BBQ. Gatlinburg is a tough, competitive BBQ market, and I found Calhoun's product to fall in the middle of the pack. I was disappointed that neither brisket nor sausage were offered. My pulled pork was very average; side dishes of slaw and mac - n - cheese were very good. Calhoun's Wet Wings were the best item that we ordered. Service was good, seating was quick. Unfortunately, the BBQ didn't match the hype.
