Good selection of ribs, pork, and fried foods. I liked the cream corn and fried okra. The bread pudding with lemon sauce is absolutely amazing.

Ribs could have been served hotter and just a little over cooked. Other menu items were acceptable. Lots of atmosphere at this waterside restaurant overlooking the marina

Calhoun's has adopted a new we don't really care about the quality of the food anymore attitude. Not sure where it was lost along the way but the ribs aren't near as good as they used to be and the buffet just plain sucks now....More

This is a favorite during summer. The ribs are way better than average. The fellow that runs this restaurant really knows what he's doing; always good food at reasonable prices. People of all ages like this place and being on the water never hurts.

I'm not sure, but I've heard it's very good.
Is there a brunch/buffet on Sundays and at what time does it end?
