Calhoun's has good food, but it is the atmosphere that makes this restaurant list worthy. When the weather permits, you can sit outside overlooking the river, and on game day it is the place to be.
Ask for some honey and butter with those biscuits.
Hanging at calhouns on the river on a beautiful day is hard to beat! Their ribs are awesome and I love the beers they brew! Always a favorite place to go in Knoxville
Servers are real hot here
The Servers are REALLY HOT. Excellent service.
You have to have the ribs, best I have ever had!
They have SO many flavors of frozen margaritas.
Excellent BBQ. Much, much better than we get in New Jersey.
The ribs are the best baby backs I've ever had. There's no point in ordering anything else.
Good but doesn't live up to the hype of the "famous" Calhoun's.
Go and have the seasonal wheat beer!!
Get there early on UT Game Days... Go by boat and enjoy the Vol. Navy!
Fried green maters!!!
Calhoun's proudly boasts the best ribs in America- and they're not afraid to throw some of their special BBQ seasoning in their bloody's. Definitely worth trying!
Do yourself a favor. Order the Kickback burger. You're welcome.
Talk about how good the garlic rolls are, so you get to grab the biscuit first!
Ale steaks r top notch here
They give you a big piece of cheesecake, yo!!!
A great place to take the team after a tough soccer match. Nice breeze over the river and great food! We all had fun. The waitress was a little forgetful, but smokin hot so we overlooked it.
Great food and$5 mojitos!
Pulled Pork Sandwich with ALL the BBQ sauce, Cherokee Red Ale, and Banana Pudding. The BEST.
Pretzels and beer cheese
Great food, incredible atmosphere & ask for "Brandon" #bestserver!
Nothing beats calhouns on a nice fall evening
Yes, their ribs are fabulous, but you can't go wrong with the steak Calhoun either. Also, love the 1st come 1st serve area around the bar. Works great for parties of 4 or less.
Cucumber basil martini is awesome. Worth trying for sure.
Ribs are amazing!!!
The baked beans are legit
Delicious corn puddin' - Get at it!
Service has been terrible tonight.
It's a nice place for lunch or dinner, but go to a hole in the wall joint if you want better barbecue.
Great location on the river.... Nice selection of their own micro brews on draft, plus bottles of everything else. Go for the ribs... Some of the best I've had!
Ribs are incredible. Enjoy the location on the river.
Limited menu on the deck. Just eat inside. :(
White chili and naked wings....great!
Full slab. Do it
Ribs are fantastic. If you order a side salad don't fill up on it
We hope you're a Tennessee football fan! Be sure get to here before kickoff for a great place to watch the game.
Great ribs but the spinach maria was the awesomeness.
Meat. It's what's for dinner.
Great view ....Mike Chase is the best proprietor in the restaurant business in Knoxville
Great place to eat and enjoy looking over the water.
Worst service ever. Went 2 patio 2 wait for a table inside and servers everywhere, but not one asked if we needed a drink. Also, after getting a table 35 min later, took 15 mins 2get drinks/bread.
Service was so fast. My food came out within mins and was delish.....
Go in the summer when the band " the shoeshakerz" are there.... they are awesome ... new and old music....
I had the calhoun's trio and everything was amazing. Everyone was right about the ribs. Way better than the BBQ in Ohio.
