    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.

        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.
