Calhoun's on the River

Calhoun's on the River in Knoxville has a Tennessee tradition of great southern food and a wonderful ambience. Situated on the north bank of Fort Loudon Lake, the restaurant is  part of  "Volunteer Landing, " a mile-long stretch along Neyland Drive with a walk along the river, historical signage,  and family activities. Located just a short distance from the University of Tennessee campus, Neyland Stadium, and Thompson Boling Arena, Calhoun's is a popular gathering place before and after the game, for fans of both teams. Especially colorful is the docking of the "Vol Navy," comprised of fans who arrive by boat.

Famous for its barbeque, catfish, grilled steaks, fried chicken, and seafood, Calhoun's is a great restaurant for the family, as well as for football fans and business meetings. Catering and meeting facilities are available.
