My wife and I love Calhouns in Gatlinburg. We have been eating there reguarly since 1998. The food is always great. We especially like the Ribs and the Prime. My wife thought the fried trout was excellent however I guess they needed to remove it from the menu along with that fantastic cheese cake. Neither of us needed the calories anyway. The spinach maria is excellent along with a really well made salad. I see some complaints about service but we haven't had that problem and any complaint about the food like a bad potato was taken care of promptly. I have had my team members at work their several times and they handle large groups very well. Excellent view of the mountain, parkway and lift from the bar. Great Place to go. I would love to see the old menu back.
There are better places to eat and where service is ten times better. My wife and I and some friends have eaten there, and was not happy with it. Took forever to get a refill on drinks, and the place wasn't even that busy, food, was cold in 2 minutes and didn't have much taste to it. I would not recommend this place to my worst enemy.
Spent the weekend in Gatlinburg and ate dinner at Calhouns on Friday evening. Was torn between a steak filet or the ale marinated sirloin. I chose the sirloin and it was FANTASTIC. That and baked apples all washed down with one of their crafted beers. What a meal. We had a young Russian man as our server and the service was above reproach. We are so looking forward to going back.
We go to Gatlinburg a couple of times a year and I start thinking about their prime rib a week before we go. The Prime rib is great, the service is great, the mountain trout is exceptional (husband's favorite), and the corn pudding is out of this world. So make this a place to eat in Gatlinburg. If you have to wait, it is worth it.. Yummy!!!
I've eaten here twice & both times wasn't great. The first time I went I got a hamburger & was sick all night. Their food just isn't that good. My friends got married in Gatlinburg & Calhoun's catered. They were late getting there, didn't apologize about being late & the food was cold. They didn't even offer to give them a credit or discount!
