    Food isn't fantastic, and choices on the menu are limited here. However the staff works really hard to make sure that the food you order is safe to eat. Made a mistake and ordered something that had an oil my husband couldn't eat, they immediately removed the plate without us even asking and helped him order something that was safe for all his allergies. We were able to eat lunch without him getting sick.

    Well if you are going for Ribs forget it. Their naturally gf sauce is produced in a facility that processes wheat. So I ordered their shrimp which was overcooked and rubbery. Could not have rice that went with shrimp so substituted a baked potato. They charged a dollar extra for a small amount of sour cream and chives.

    Our waitress was very knowledgeable about how the foods were prepared, which were gluten free and which to avoid. The menu had astericks by items that could be prepared gluten free. My daughter and I split the prime rib, which was delicious! Nice atmosphere, pleasant dinner, delicious food!

    They do have a GF but very limited selections. We did not choose to eat there.

    The menu was tiny there were literally three things on the menu (super expensive). We waited an hour to be seated because the buzzer was "broken", service was terrible. Wine was good.

    GF menu. Celiac friendly, no cross contamination. Enjoyed shrimp skewers, mashed potatoes, baked apples, and coleslaw. Apples were the only seasoned and flavorful item. It was good for something hot and different, but probably won't be back. Slow service.

    Other restaurants in Gatlinburg recommended eating at Calhoun's. They had a separate gluten free menu and was knowledgeable. We will go back if we travel to Gatlinburg again.

    Gluten-free menu small but any restaurant that has one I appreciate. I ordered steak and it was very good and cooked to order. Side salad is mostly iceberg I wouldn't get that next time. I wish they had more sides to choose from I would gladly return. We had a great time a great service.

    My husband ordered from the gluten free menu and still got sick. It could have been our waiter, but I blame the restaurant for not properly educating it's staff on making sure they write gluten free when they offer a gluten fee menu.

    separate GF menu, service was just alright. Menu says bacon is not GF, ordered loaded potato without the bacon, but they loaded it on my salad. Returned the salad, when it was brought back, they put the same salad dressing cup with bacon still on the side of it in the salad.

    Totally unaware & educated about allergies. They don't have a separate gluten free menu and there are about half a dozen things marked as gluten free, no appetizers or desserts, barely any sides and drinks aren't marked. Our waiter was very kind and tried to be helpful with my order but the kitchen apparently was terrible. My steak was almost raw in the middle and I asked for med. well but the most ridiculous part was I asked for steamed broccoli with no butter because of a dairy allergy and they brought out raw broccoli with butter smeared all over the top, which our waiter and the kitchen didn't catch. Then someone in the kitchen brought out cooked broccoli, apologized, and explained that they "washed the butter off then steamed so it should be totally ok for you now"... gross. There was a bbq sauce thumb print on my plate (nothing I ordered had sauce) that I didn't see until half way through my meal and most of the bottom of my baked potato was covered in some kind of sauce - major cross contamination issue with this and the butter being washed off the broccoli, not to mention just gross. Also both my water and drink glass had good stock to the outside. For those in need of an allergy aware safe place this is not it. However my boyfriend who does not have any allergies said his meal was good.

    We went here for brunch. If you Are gluten free your only options are eggs, grits and bacon. My husband and two sons really enjoyed their food. My food was really good too; it just came out in very small portions since they were all technically sides. Drinks were great. I had a spritz and you only need one to get your day going. The only reason I’m giving it four stars is due to service. We ordered an extra side of Mac and cheese and I ordered another side of grits that arrived at our table when we were paying our bill. It looked like a cool spot I’d want to go back to for drinks minus the kids.

    The staff was very unaware of gluten sensitive or celiacs. They had very limited options. Do not recommend. In same complex, go to Smokey Mountain Brewery. Several options, burgers with buns, pizza and I had philly steak with cheese. Delicious!

    On Wednesday and Friday, choice is only buffet. They offered to see if a piece of grilled chicken and a salad could be made but their knowledge level of gluten free was not comforting. For someone with Celiacs, I could not take the chance. Maybe it is better other days.

    After 3 attempts at getting a salad gluten free, I gave up. I didn't eat at all because the salad kept coming back with croutons, breaded chicken, etc.

    Very small gluten free menu. No bread, and they seem to fry their bacon so that was off limits for burger toppings. Ended up just risking it and had their naked wings. Yes they were fried. Pretty good though.

    Spent a week in the Pigeon Forge area and used this app to help me find places to eat. Calhouns was worst meal I had during the trip. Limited GF options, staff seemed clueless, and I got the smallest, dryest, and possible the most expensive piece of grilled chicken ever.

    Poor service and limited gluten free options. I was brought a salad with croutons and other gluten toppings twice before receiving a plain salad.
