I had my wedding reception at Calhoun's on the River. They did a fantastic job and everything was great! I came in multiple times before the wedding. They were always polite and accommodating and could meet with me whenever I needed. They don't assign any specific person to your event, but I was surprised at how seemlessly I could transition from talking with one person to the next. Everything still went perfectly without one specific person helping me. The food an service was fantastic. My husband and I are big on craft beer, so it was great to have in house craft brews able to provide. They also had good wine options to serve. Everyone was so helpful leading up and especially at my reception. I am a detail person and was worried I was getting too specific and picky but they delivered on everything I asked to a t. I didn't have any stress over whether things were going how they were supposed to. I can't stress enough how easy they were to work with! Also our reception was in the evening so we had an amazing view of the river with the Henley Street bridge lit up. It was a great backdrop for pictures! Also, they were the best value I could find for the high quality they have. I compared several comparable venues with broken down venue, food, alcohol, linens, etc. costs. They came out as the best value (especially because there was no cost for the space rental itself) and there were no unexpected last minute charges.

Our reception was held at Calhoun's banquet center in Gatlinburg, TN. This place was absolutely perfect. I had a lot of contact with Patricia who was a huge asset to my wedding planning. We live in Ohio and had no way of going to TN to go around and pick out vendors and other places and Patricia was my go to person for suggestions on a DJ and baker. She was spot on with both! Enormous help for an out of state bride!
-The location was absolutely beautiful. It is a nice little location in the middle of Gatlinburg, but you feel like you are in a secluded venue with beautiful woods for the backdrop.
-The food was exceptional. ALL my guests stated that it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. They were even able to customize the menu for my guests that were vegetarian and my 2 vegan guests. They went beyond the extra mile to meet my requests. My sister who is a vegan states that she was thrilled that they were able to make something so delicious for them when they usually have nothing they can eat at weddings.
-They were all so amazing that it made my wedding go so smooth. The staff were amazing and Patricia made everything so much easier on my part! I cannot express how perfect they made my reception. I am just so thankful!

Loved everyone who helped with my May wedding! Phillip was so very nice and accommodating to work with. Relieved a lot of my stress over the wedding day details! The food was amazing, the atmosphere was amazing and we couldn't have been happier that we chose Calhoun's on the River as our reception site. Our guests loved it too! Only downside was that parking was very, very limited so we had to circle the parking lot a few times to wait for someone to leave. All in all, it was a fabulous experience!

Calhoun's was great! We went with their heavy hors d'oeuvres menu (I believe it was called the City Lights menu?) and it was a huge hit with our guests. There were enough food options to keep everyone happy and to act as a meal without being too filling. It was also very reasonably priced. They provided linens for the serving tables (which saved us from having to rent them) and for only $1 more per plate they cut and served our cakes. My favorite part: they packaged the leftovers for us to take home instead of throwing everything away. I highly recommend them!

We used Calhouns on the River as our caterer for our rehearsal dinner. We had about 75 people at an outdoor venue. Calhouns did an excellent job. They exceeded our expectations in all areas. The food tasted wonderful and was well prepared. The service was excellent, and we got to take home a lot of left overs. They did a tremendous job. I will use them again and I definitely recommend them for catering needs.

Grand daughter's wedding (8/23/2014) Beef kabobs, grilled chicken, spinach maria, rolls were terrific. I didn't try the green beans, or mashed potatoes. The mac-n-cheese was blandand chewy, not very much flavor. I would recommend Calhoun's for another catering job, with maybe a few different side options (keep the spinach).
