A letter

From Rick Erwin

Where guests feel at home and locals feel like family.

I have been a fan of Clemson athletics since I was a child, however, more than sports- I have loved Clemson, South Carolina. I’ve known for a long time that I wanted to replicate what our customers have grown to love about our Greenville restaurants, and create a similar (and unique) restaurant in Clemson. I wanted to create an atmosphere where locals felt like family and traveling guests felt at home.
While our restaurants have been known for the best steaks and seafood, you’ll also find a menu that is a reflection of southern tradition and upscale favorites. It would be our pleasure and honor to host you either to celebrate a Tiger win, your next special night out, or drinks with friends in the bar!

Our Guests!

“We celebrated our Anniversary last night and everyone was so kind and friendly! They made our night special by seating us in a cozy booth and even made us an anniversary card signed by the staff. Thank you all for that special touch! Now about the wonderful food. We both had the Surf & Turf which was outstanding and the chocolate cake with ice was hit! Thank you all again for the very personable service and delicious meal!!”

“Whenever you are in the Clemson area, you need to make it a must to go and dine @ Rick Erwins…you will not be disappointed. The area they are located in, Patrick Square, is a very nice location. You have got to spoil yourself with this fine dining establishment.”
