    We liked restaurant a lot. Great service. However, for being known for barbecue ribs, they were terrible. Way too dry and overcooked. The ends appetizer was delicious.

    We arrived at our reservation time and we were immediately seated. Our server was a well groomed, very pleasant young man. Our Server was knowledgeable and and gave us menus and also An Easter menu, he explained the specials on the Easter Menu. He then took our drink order and when he brought the drinks back he asked if there was any questions about the menu. When our server brought the food everything was well prepared and delicious. Our server did stop by several times to see if we needed anything. As I stated at the beginning everything was very good and left nothing to be desired. All of the employees made this a Fantastic Easter Meal. To make things happen this way takes team work and it is obvious this Calhoun’s employees work well together. We have eaten at most all other Calhoun’s in the area but this was the first time for the Turkey Creek Calhoun’s and we definitely will be coming back. Thank You

    Really rather disappointing. Very slow service. The restaurant was very noisy and communication with members of our small table was nearly impossible. The waitstaff were undertrained and overwhelmed. The food was subpar. The restaurant does offer gluten free options, but our server was not very knowledgeable. The manager came to our table to offer some clarification, which reduced food choices even more. We ordered a few appetizers, the potato skins were good, but the shrimp skewers were overcooked, chewy and without flavor. When the main courses finally arrived, some of the plates were dry and overcooked, while other family members received items that were still frozen. In the past , I have enjoyed good meals at other Calhoun's locations, but we did not enjoy this experience. I do not plan to return to the Turkey Creek location.

    It would have been a more pleasant experience if there had not been a large dog in the dining area. It didn’t not have on a service dog vest. I had to tell the gentleman to pull his dog back because it was getting in front of our booth. As we were leaving my husband noticed that the dog had his head and front paws in the other gentleman’s lap and was licking the table. I don’t think that leads to a very sanitary environment.

    While the service was good. The food was poor. I got the prime rib and shrimp. The prime rib was fatty and overcooked. The shrimp were burnt and inedible. My wife's ribs were dry and not very flavorful. Will not return.

    Christmas night so it was chaotic and hostess seemed inexperienced. It took 25 minutes to get us seated. However when we were seated it was to a large corner booth which was perfect with grand children. Nick, our server was great. The bar was slow so he brought water and a basket of assorted rolls. He handled a spilled glass of wine calmly and kept the children happy with Shirley Temple’s when the food was slow. The food was pretty good but the kitchen ran out of several entrees and also several desserts despite the fact that our reservation was for 5:15. I have no idea what they fed later customers! Still, despite the shortcomings, we all were fed and had a good time. Management and staff are still not up to pre pandemic level of service but that seems to be common. I appreciated that fact that they one a few restaurants open on Christmas Day.

    We understand it was Christmas. Our server was absolutely great and we enjoyed our meal! We were upset with the management on the flow of Christmas Day. We had reservations for 4:15. Showed up at 4 and were not seated to after 5 because the kitchen was backed up with to go orders and only one person working the front desk.

    No complaints about the quality of the food. However, they ran out of certain dishes early in the day. Even with a reservation, there was a small delay is being seated. In addition the restaurant was very cold (understand that the temperatures outside was unseasonable frigid).

    Calhoun’s turkey and dressing meal was surprisingly better than expected. My husband and I ordered the turkey and our son chose the half slab of ribs, broccoli and fries. He really should have ordered a full slab since he is a big eater. We all enjoyed our meal. Turkey Creek Calhoun’s was colder than I remember—had to keep coat on while eating.

    Over all it was a wonderful evening. We were disappointed with the booth seating, as we had 5 guests and it was very tight. The other issue was they did last call at 7:45. Since we got seated at 7:15, that was a little annoying. The hostess should have informed us when we first got seated. Our server did a great job and meals were delicious.

    Ordered off of their daily special menu and selected their BBQ trio that included a 1/3 rack of ribs, three slices of brisket and a healthy serving of pulled pork plus a side of roasted butternut squash. The brisket and squash were very good. The pulled pork was fair. The 1/3 rack of ribs were severly overcooked and hidden in a thick layer of BBQ sauce. Their jalapeño margarita was superb!! Otherwise, the meal was disappointing.
