Our server was Kiana. She was incredibly personable and was great to our party. With willingness to converse with us when coming to the table, ultimately she added this establishment's great atmosphere.

Calhoun's on the River does not take reservations on Game Day. Please remember also, there is a parking charge which is refunded if you move your car before kickoff.
