Clemson SC Bar and Food
I have to be in Clemson for a day soon. Need a place for a couple of beers and a meal. Nothing too fancy, but will have Mrs Pirate along so not a dive either. A Micro brewery or similar would be really good. Can anyone help please?
Have you ever been to Klem(P)sum? (Us UGA fans hold the place very near & dear, yeah right!)
It has been a while but the last time I was there (10 months or so) you had your choice of a couple of fast food joints, a chain steak house, the Esso Club, Tiger Town & a somewhat okay barbecue joint. Besides the university, several motels, & a bunch of business to keep the university kids happy that was about it.
Now, having said that, do a favor for yourself & stop by the creamery for some of the best domestic blue cheese you will ever find. That stuff is wonderful & take some time to visit the South Carolina Botanical Gardens & the historical houses--Fort Hill, &c.
Head south to a little burg called Pendleton (hwy 76 S to business 28) & take some time to tour the historical sites there. The old Farmers' Hall is a halfway decent restaurant--actually they try too hard & tend to be mediocre--and there is a pub in the Pendleton House that has gotten some good local press but I can not vouch for it. Pendleton has a web site but I can not find the link. Good luck & definitely get some blue cheese.
