Foursquare Tips

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • They have SO many flavors of frozen margaritas.
  • Fried green maters!!!
  • Excellent BBQ. Much, much better than we get in New Jersey.
  • Good but doesn't live up to the hype of the "famous" Calhoun's.
  • Go and have the seasonal wheat beer!!
  • 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.
  • Get there early on UT Game Days... Go by boat and enjoy the Vol. Navy!
  • 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.
  • 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!
