This place is hard to find in a dark strip mall with little signage. But make sure you find it because the food is outstanding. My server had a few challenges. And there's a section of the restaurant bathed in fluorescent light that reminds me of a high school gym. So find the nicest spot you can, hope your server... More

From warm bread brought to your table to delicious spinach & artichoke dip (appetizer) to the blackened salmon over cheese grits - a wonderful dinner.

We had dinner here because recommended on tripadvisor. We totally enjoyed our meal. Very nice atmosphere in the downstairs bar. Also can enter from the back on the building. We had pasta carbonara and beef stroganoff. Servings were very large and food was excellent. I would highly recommend if in Clemson. Very extensive menu lots of good choices

My husband and I are staying in Clemson for some meetings and decided to try the Blue Heron. Our server, Luca, was very attentive and made us feel especially welcome. I ordered the Mahi special with risotto and it was very good. We would definitely return to this restaurant again!

The fried tomatoes were really good. The sushi was okay, I was expecting better. We had soup as well which was very tasty. Very nice waitress. A little bit of a wait.

This is where college kids go when their parents come to town. It has a lot of tables and a wide variety of dishes. It's expensive but it's also got a creative approach to food. Good ingredients make it. Extensive wine list. Reliable for out of town guests.

Went here for the first time on a Tuesday night with some relatives who were visiting from out of town. Had to wait for a table downstairs at the bar, but great service at the bar. Place was quite busy for a Tuesday night. Waiter did an exceptional job of explaining the specials and making recommendations. Lots of variety in... More

We ordered the crab cakes and lobster bisque as a start to our dining experience. The Bisque was very good. Rich and flavorful, you wanted to make sure you got every drop. The crab cake presentation was very pleasing. The sauce was a strong lemon mayo base which really added that extra pleasing taste. For our entrees we ordered the... More
