Some Clemson options

Christine | May 14, 200511:08 PM

Hey folks, I've read the posts about Clemson eating options and thought I'd offer up a few favorites. Clemson doesn't have a lot of choices, but there are some nice funky choices there if you want. And yes, we are rural.

TAPAS: Sole, Victoria Square on College Avenue. A nice evening experience. A eclectic menu and a good wine list. Casual, relaxed atmosphere.

PIZZA: Mellow Mushroom. Yeah, I know, Mellow Mushroom is a franchise but the building is really cool. It's in an old house on 93 (c 1920) that became a dilapidated frat house. They took it over and it's quite unusual.

BAR: Two choices. Nick's has a limited bar and lunch menu, but a terrific beer selection. They have about 10 beers on tap (Bass, Guiness, Killians) and countless others in bottles, which is impressive for a place with about 1600 square feet. Esther is a true beer connisseur.

Tiger Town Tavern is good for lunch and makes an excellent honey mustard. Ask for extra.

HIGH DINING: Yes, forget it. We're a small college town! If you're looking for this, then yes, go to Atlanta or Greenville.

OTHER: Another favorite of mine is Acropolis restaurant. The atmosphere is not great ... v small with heavy wooden tables and possibly mismatched chairs, TV playing in the corner, owner probably watching a soccer game. But the gyro is very good.

Also mentioned was Split Creek Farm in Pendleton for their goat cheese. They also make a terrific fudge out of their goat milk that is not to be missed. It can be ordered online. Get the peanut butter.
