Calhoun's serves up one of the best lunch buffets around. Fried okra, catfish, chicken tenders, ribs, pulled pork and prime rib , sides such as mac and cheese, green beans, potatoes, etc. Rolls, corn muffins, soup, salad bar and dessert ! You can't beat it....More

Ribs could have been served hotter and just a little over cooked. Other menu items were acceptable. Lots of atmosphere at this waterside restaurant overlooking the marina

Calhoun's has adopted a new we don't really care about the quality of the food anymore attitude. Not sure where it was lost along the way but the ribs aren't near as good as they used to be and the buffet just plain sucks now....More

This is a favorite during summer. The ribs are way better than average. The fellow that runs this restaurant really knows what he's doing; always good food at reasonable prices. People of all ages like this place and being on the water never hurts.

Calhoun's in Lenoir City is on the water. They have the best tasting ribs. They have other items but we always get the ribs. Their Spinach Maria is a good side dish, as it the Corn Pudding.
