Great restaurant in a college town.

The food is almost always fantastic. To be honest we have had one bad experience but the norm is great food and great service. Ask for Chris as your waiter and you won't be disappointed. He also makes a great Cosmo!!

My husband and I went here last night. We had 630 reservations....seated immediately. Our seats were in a lovely glass enclosed room behind the bar. The food was delicious. I had the Bowden bowl with salmon....wonderful! My husband had the blackened salmon on cheesy grits and it was divine! The bread is warm and fresh with several spreads. Our server... More

As someone who lived in Clemson during the 1960s and '70s, I was really impressed with how far the culinary scene there has progressed. The Blue Heron menu has a number of interesting dishes and the wine selection and service are good. We had a group of 7 and everyone seemed very happy with their food. I had the shrimp... More

The food is quite tasty. There is a good wine list. Our waiter was very nice if a little slow. The sushi is yummy.

Will write a more complete review after I go upstairs to eat someday. The bar is fine. It actually seemed to be kid-friendly which is unusual for a bar. You could get food there - and the wait staff worked really hard as they had to go upstairs to get food to bring down to the bar patrons. It was... More

The sushi is very good here. Probably not the best in the world but it pretty darn good for Clemson/Anderson/Greenville. The other entrees are ok but skip all that and stick with sushi for a regret-free evening.

Worse service ever. Our waitress took care of her other tables but ignored ours the entire time. She never gave us a refill, never brought our bread, and I had to hunt her down for the check. What makes it even worse is the manager didn't do anything! He took my number and said he would call me that night.... More

I'm a local and been here several times. The food is very good. They are set up for being something for everyone. It's just too bad that the service doesn't work. Last night, we came in at 9 for a quick bite downsstairs. 45 minutes after ordering, no food. But the table behind us and the one beside that came... More

This is a class A restaurant. We ordered a salad, risotto and Mahi Mahi. All came out tasting great. Service was excellent too. This is a great choice for family and friends. BTW, even the prices were good!

This place was fine for dinner. Especially considering not much else is open on Sunday for dinner in Clemson. Our salads were crisp and fresh. The halibut special was unfortunately over cooked and served stop grits instead of the advertised mashed potatoes. The grouper was fine. The staff were very nice. The menu is very extensive which always make me... More
