Consistently Excellent

Although, at times, the wait staff quality can vary (they are mostly Clemson students), the quality of the dining experience has been for us consistently excellent. We've dined there maybe 40 times in the last 16 years we've lived in the upstate. We've never had a bad meal. Although it can be a... read more

I went to Clemson for couple days and definitively was the best dinner I had on town. Is a nice place with amazing big windows. I had a filet mignon and is on the list of one the best I ever had.

The filet mignon was excellent! This place also had the best she crab soup I've ever had. Being from up north, I do not get a chance to eat she crab soup very often so this was a true delight. My only slight complaint would be the noise factor, as it was extremely loud during my dinner with my girlfriend.

Staying locally in Clemson, while on a mini-road trip, we sought local advice on Restaurants and were directed here, with the caveat that “it was a bit more expensive than …XYZ….but you’ll like it and you won’t be disappointed”. How right they were. Finding it was more tricky than expected as it appears to be on a different street to... More

The food was amazingly good. The atmosphere was fun and cozy. The spicy grits appetizer was SPICY! I did notice that the woodwork near our table was covered in dust.

You will not be disappointed if you order the filet mignon. Calhoun Corners has always prepared this cut perfectly!!! The restaurant atmosphere is conducive to dining for business or pleasure.

Atmosphere on a winter's night was lovely - with candles and white tablecloths. Summer on the patio nice, too.

Great food! I had the twin filets and my daughter had pork loin..food was not your average..there was a unique and tasty twist. If visiting Clemson…or want to take your kid/wife/girlfriend etc. someplace special…this is it!

Having never had before, it was awesome! Very flavorful and very creamy. A co-worker, who has grown up on shrimp and grits in the South also said it was very, very good. Others had the tenderloin and the duck and we were all very happy and full when leaving. Would definitely go back. Tip: there's parking immediately to the left... More
