  1. Siam Royal Thai is good but a very plain setting.There are no Indian options.

    The Blue Heron is pretty good.

    There is suprisingly few good dining options in Clemson.

      What type of food does the Blue Heron serve?

      1. re: Barbarella

        Traditional american, pastas, seafood, and a sushi bar.I know it sounds scary trying to do too many things, but it all is executed pretty well.Its a good place to just go with a nightly special.Its owned by two brothers,Tim runs the front of the house and take very good care of his guests.

        I suspect your will think the atmospere and menu a little dated however.

            Don't be afraid of the mention of kareoke(sp), the bar is downstairs and most of the older diners don't even know its there.

            The Blue Heron is a quality place,but Clemson has become a retirement destination so expect more over 60's than college kids.

            I don't know how they do it,but they deliver an outstanding steak for twenty bucks.

            When we were there last weekend, the wife and I both said "why don't we come here more".We are in our 50's if it matters.
