We chose Calhoun’s based on prior visits but would think twice about returning after this one. Our family of four (3adults, 2 children) arrived and were sat quickly and waited a while for service. Once our waitress arrived she was sweet and friendly but talked way tooo much. She placed our order and drinks came quickly then things went downhill. Refills were far and few between and after a sweltering TN day we we needed water. A manager came to our table with the wrong orders and then we waited for what seemed to be a long time for our waitress to come by. She came to the table with the wings for the first 2 people but not their fries. About 5 minutes went by and the 3rd persons food was delivered and we asked about the fries. She said they were just getting started and would be out shortly. The 4th plate was delivered about 8 minutes after that along with 1 order of fries. We don’t know what happened to the other order of fries and we’re almost done with our meals so didn’t really care. We arrived around 630pm on a Wednesday night and it wasn’t busy at all. Food was good but we noticed many other guests were there just as long and having similar issues. Not sure what was going on but didn’t leave a positive note with us.

Ordered a huge family take out meal, 100$ to be exact on June 23rd. Menu is totally misleading we ordered BBQ chicken what we got or a box of plain very small grilled tenders three bottles of barbecue sauce and 10 stale buns said that it came with baked beans and coleslaw we did not get that we did get our sides of mac & cheese and mashed potatoes. We place the order at 5:30 we told them we would pick it up at 6:45 we arrived at 6:45 our order was not ready we had to wait until 720 we ask if maybe we could get a discount we didn’t even get an apology or a discount this is the place we always visited when we come to the Smokies we will never go there again they have definitely lost our business so disappointed.

Of all the meals we had there, the prime rib was the best we have had anywhere. It was awesome. Our waiter was exceptional.

Visited for dinner on a Thursday night the wait was minimal (about 15 minutes). Our waiter was quick and made sure our drinks were always refilled. We had the fried pickles for an appetizer and they were just OK, lot's of breading and not much pickle. Our meals on the other hand were fantastic. My daughter had the Southern Salad it was amazing and the biggest salad I had ever seen. My husband had the trio which is good if you want to sample a variety of meets. I had the smoked chicken and it was very good as well. They also brought out a basket of various breads. The portions were huge and we had plenty of leftovers.
