We had dinner here last week with 50 of our closest friends, celebrating on several levels. Here for a dedication ceremony at Southern Wesleyan University and a birthday. Food and service was excellent. I had a steak and my wife had the shrimp and grits. Both were perfect and tasty. Would recommend this restaurant when in Clemson.

The Blue Heron is our go to restaurant for any business dinner. The food is reliable excellent. We always order sushi as an appetizer and it is always fresh and tasty.My husband loves the shrimp and grits and I always order a steak which is tender and flavorful.

I had a geat risotto, nicely prepared (but I still can't figure why they added carots and Broccholies) and we shared sushi as an appetizers and we really enjoyed our meal. It's really a nice place where I would recommand you to stop by.

First time here and totally impressed. I advise reservations. The regular menu on their website had my attention but the chef's specials are over the top. I had the New York strip with potatos gratin porchini mushrooms, grilled asparagus with a port wine demi glace..fantasic we will be back

A truly amazing dinning experience! Our server Mathew was knowledgable, attentive, and fun. The food was exceptional - with the beautiful presentation only surpassed by the amazing flavor combination. Definitely one of the best meals I've had anywhere! And a welcoming and casual atmosphere. Highly recommend.

For it's great rating, I was expecting much more. This is more a local bar than fine-dining. I thought food was OK, ambiance sorta fair. Service was good though. Nothing to write home about. It was very average.

Clemson has a few nicer restaurants and this is one that shouldn't be ignored! Great sushi but also great steak and pasta dishes. I ordered the spinach pasta and it was great! Vegetarian options!

Didn't expect a group of four to try filet every which way at a place with Sushi in the title, but they cooked fantastic filet mignon to order for each of us perfectly. The wait staff was a little on the inexperienced side (college kids - what do you expect?), but the bartender knew how to mix proper drinks with... More

We walked in without a reservation on a basketball game night. They sat us downstairs. Was a little leary until we got the food. I had a NY Strip with crab meet topping. Best I have had in a long time. Others had the filet and salmon and all was wonderful. Calamari appetizer was very good and the service downstairs... More
