    Sides, salads are good to very good. Apps are good but not very foodie oriented and more greasy bar food. BBQ (all 3) and chicken are just too dry and overdone. This food seems better with events and catering.

    The service was great. Our waitress was lovely and management even stopped by to check on our table. But the food was bland and did not taste good. I felt like we paid too much for the lack of flavor. But it was Christmas and getting someone to show up to work was a lot so we didn't complain.

    We were so disappointed with our dining experience at Calhoun’s on Bearden Hill. On Christmas Eve you expect a wonderful dinner and atmosphere, but it was any but. We felt so rushed as if we were holding them up. We had 7:45pm reservation and only stayed about an hour. They stopped serving beer and wine half way through our dinner without telling us (we only got one drink). Finally 20 minutes later the server was able to get me another glass of wine but failed to bring the rest of our party another drink. The salmon was very dry and tasted like an overcooked frozen product. The staff were loud and pretty much acted like we were not there as they were cleaning the floors and rushing to get out. We will not be back.

    Had Thanksgiving dinner at Calhoun's yesterday! I love that they offer a real turkey and dressing meal along with a piece of pumpkin cheesecake for a very reasonable price. Tasty food and no cooking or cleanup required. Will do again next year!

    Started with wine being served in a dirty glass. Sent that back. Sat down at 6:30. Appetizers didn’t come out until 7:15 after being told the kitchen was backed up. We had ordered our dinner at the same time. By 745 I went to the manager. At 750 our server told us our dinner was 2 minutes away. At 8:00 it was served in shifts. All the food was cold, dry and not edible. When the manager came over to us he said “I was thrown to the wolves”. Completely inappropriate. Do not go!

    Obviously understaffed. Waitstaff tried but given too much to handle so service was poor. Had to ask for silverware more than once. Food was subpar and certainly not worth the cost. Most definitely will not eat again at this location.

    Our server was fantastic! However, it took a long time to get our food and the restaurant was not busy at all. The fountain drinks did not taste good. The ratio of soda water and syrup was off it seemed. The food was okay. But my Hickory BBQ Burger was disappointing. There was no bbq on yet. The fries were great though. The Key Lime Pie was not good. It was stale and obviously had been frozen. But the Banana Pudding was good. So, our experience was just okay. Definitely not what one would expect from Calhoun’s. But, again, the server was had was excellent!

    I’m happy we dined here. It’s quite a few notches above a Texas Roadhouse. The bread basket was great and the steaks were cooked perfectly. I’m so annoyed when they’re over cooked and this place got it right.

    It was "fine" but we won't make a point to come back. Quality of food was ok but tasted mass produced or packaged. Our server was completely out of it and unfriendly even after I tried to joke some. We made reservations but were told we'd have to sit in bar area anyway.
