The last meal we had at Calhoun's in Lenoir City left us feeling queasy. There were flies all over the window at our booth. We killed 7 before our food arrived. My husband's catfish had a hair in it. When we sent it back our server apologized and said she would send the manager over. We did not ask for... More

Husband and I hadn't been to Calhoun's in a while mostly because the last few visits we hadn't enjoyed the food/service like we previously had....decided to give it a try again recently and were both very impressed with our meal. The chicken finger salad was delicious and much improved from the last time I had ordered it.....too much to eat... More

BBQ pork plate - bland, tough, and generally unappetizing. Only condiment was tasteless BBQ sauce. House beer - on a par with Bud Light and other non-flavorful beers. Service - average, nothing special

All these years I never knew this location only has a lunch buffet on Wednesdays and Fridays only 11 to 2. $12 per person. Ribs, sirloin, fried catfish, chicken tenders, Plus all of their side items such as spinach Maria, Fried okra and baked beans. Also for dessert they had fabulous bread pudding and cookies. I was so full when... More

The food is not consistent. The prime rib is very thin and not tasty. Prices are high for the quantity. Sevierville location was the worst restaurant ever. Not a place I would recommend or plan to visit again. Very dissatisfied.

We go all summer long once a week. We love to sit out and eat and listen to the band. Food is good. Known for the ribs. The cole slaw is really good too. If you are in Lenoir City it is the place to go. Enjoy~

I love good BBQ but rarely find it. This place has good BBQ if you like a smokey base flavor in the meats. I've had better and definitely worse. But I also had the wings. On this visit. Absolutely delish. They have a wet sauce they toss them in that is just unique and genuinely tasty. Sweet and a little... More

Great place to unwind and enjoy not only the atmosphere and food but the servers are so personable. One in particular is Kelly. We always try to sit in her area and she is the sweetest most efficient server I have ever had. Even in the winter time this place is so entertaining from the boats that have decorated for... More
