I have messaged as well as emaile, with no reply...

We visited the Neyland Drive location tonight (Saturday the 8th), for a work Christmas party. We were greeted and seated promptly at our reserved time of 5:00pm. We were designated two waitresses, Brittany L (according to the ticket) and another unknown female. My family ordered drinks and an appetizer, as we waited on another set of guests to arrive. After some waiting (at 5:42), we decided to go ahead and order food, and thats where our "service" ended. The other guests arrived and the waitresses took their order but never checked on the existing guests. After 20 minutes without a water or bar drink refill, I asked another waitress where our servers had gone. When there was still no offer of drink refills, I approached the front dest, asking for a manager. A man, who did not give his name, followed me to our table of 13 guests and proceeded to refill NUMEROUS empty drinks. Our waitresses finally came by and said our food should be out shortly. Never once was there an apology from the wait staff or management. We waited.. and waited.. and waited some more. Three times we were told that our food was about to come out. Over an hour after we ordered, the food finally arrived at the table- COLD. My steak was cold. My shrimp was cold and dry. My girlfriend's steak was cold. Several other guests' food was also not up to par. By this point, the waitresses knew that I was severely unsatisfied. So they asked the other half of the table if everything was ok, without checking with the 7 on my end. My girlfriend asked for butter for her steak twice, as well as cheese for her broccoli. The waitress told her to take the steak off and she would take the plate back to have cheese put on the broccoli. The problem is that there was no other plate for my girlfriend's steak. Where was she to put her steak? We finally just placed it on my plate because the waitress was of no help. There were numerous other issues with other guests' meals that I will not go into at this time. Given the poor condition of my meal, I ate two cold/dry shrimp and three bites of my steak before I handed it back to the waitress. She never asked what the issue was or if it was ok. I just sent back a $20 meal that wasn't eaten because it wasn't fit to be eaten! My girlfriend's steak was also not fit to be eaten but, since we weren't getting any feedback from the staff, she opted to just take it home and heat it up later. This was a horrific visit to your establishment. To make it worse, it was supposed to be a time of celebration for the work Christmas party. Whoever the management, wait staff and owners of this company are, you should be ashamed to allow patrons to have such an experience. Never have I been given service or food this poorly at such a well known establishment. Let alone with no apology or acknowledgement of the unsatisfactory conditions. I can guarantee that we will not be back to this location, that we will spread the word of our horrific experience and that I will continue to reach out until this issue is addressed. This entire ordeal is completely unacceptable.

Calhoun's On The River

I had the Fish and Chips. No complaints about the fish or the fries. The food was delivered nice and hot. This was perfect.
My wife had the salad, and that was also very nice.
I especially enjoyed the view from our table - it was amazing to get to see the river and all that goes with that.

I had the fresh squeezed lemonade, and it was too watered down. It's $3 for the 1st one, and $1 for the refill. I initially planned on a second one, but declined after having the first one. I'd expect more lemon in my lemonade.

One area that Calhoun's on the River could work on is their service. I don't know if they are running short on people or what. When we waited five or so minutes to be seated, in the lobby filled with people, I assumed that the place must be at capacity. Not really - it was not more than 30% occupied at 11:30am on a Friday.

I'd go 5 star if either the lemonade had flavor or the service was standard. Everything else was great.
My friend and I plus our 2 dogs recently had lunch at Calhoun's on the River during a day trip to Knoxville from Asheville. I had looked at the online menu prior to leaving to decide where to eat. Because we had our dogs, we sat on the lovely patio overlooking the river. The view is stunning. After being given menus we were shocked to learn that the patio menu is far more limited than inside seating. Our server Blade, who was exceptional, explained that they had a smaller kitchen outside so their menu was only a small portion of the inside menu. He said it was the owner's policy! He also said we weren't the first to be shocked at this policy and in fact many customers had actually walk out because of it. I have been eating outside with my various dogs for longer than I can remember and I have NEVER been told I couldn't have access to the restaurant's full menu. This has to be the stupidest policy I have ever heard. In the end, Blade took great care of us, and the food we ordered was good. So Blade gets 5 stars, the food gets 4 and the owner gets ZERO!!!! Until this changes we won't be back. I can only conclude that the owner doesn't really need the business, so why go there again.
Maybe it's just the atmosphere with it being on the river and all, but I swear this is the best Calhoun's. Everything was perfectly delicious. Service was great. The brisket chili was a delightfully, scrumptious surprise. The old faithful ribs were perfect. The shrimp on a skewer was slightly over cooked. Great experience and great views.
We stopped here on our way home from vacation. Beautiful location, good food and great service. My husband and I shared a meal and there was more than enough. But our favorite part (besides the view) was the kids meals. They were inexpensive and came in a cute car packaging. Great unique touch!
Great food and great service. And on Tuesday you can hear Pruitt talk about why his Vols haven't made any new plays or won more than one game. Also, it's on the river and you can feed the ducks. There's also the river walk which is really nice to take a stroll on around sunset.
