We really enjoy Blue Heron’s food and atmosphere, and dine here often. But last night was a huge disappointment. Got there at 6:45 pm, and several tables downstairs were not cleared from previous guests. Asked a staffer to clear our table, she declined saying it...More

We were there on a very busy night but still had great service and didn’t feel rushed. The food was good and appropriately priced. The fried green tomatoes were a little heavy on the breading. The scallops could’ve used another minute searing but the corn...More

We really enjoyed Blue Heron on Friday night. We went early for dinner and sat in the "first come, first served" area downstairs by the bar. We were all happy with the food -- I got the fish special (snapper I think?) Oscar style that...More

There are few very nice restaurants open on Sunday evening in Clemson. Blue Herron hits this market sweet spot perfectly. Caring staff, a terrific manager "Mike", and the food was just what we were looking for! Asked for the upstairs room area - we had...More

Our party of four went to Blue Heron last Tuesday for dinner. All of us are seniors, and unfortunately the South Carolina weather took a turn for the cold. We were seated in a corner of the dining room which was suffering from a total...More

We dined here while visiting our son. With no reservation on a Friday night we were seated in the dining room within 10 minutes- no home game. Our server was very attentive to a food allergy and made sure meals arrived in a timely manner....More

I went here for dinner with 4 couples. We sat upstairs from the bar. It is a very casual layout, but quiet enough to talk, a surprisingly good menu beyond just bar food, very good service, and reasonable price. I recommend it.

I cannot for the life of me understand how the Blue Heron is rated the #2 restaurant in Clemson. Wishing to be fair, we ate here twice. And, our experience both times was consistently lacking. Friendly but clueless waitstaff. They were slow. They did not...More
