Our Favorite Restaurants
Updated: Jan 1, 2020
1. The Village Bakery and Cafe: This bakery is home to the cutest tiger paw cookies (perfect for a Clemson game day or graduation party)! We love their delicious breakfast, lunch and coffee! Have you tried their fresh bread yet? The best part is it's located just down the road from Liberty Hall on Main Street in Pendleton.
2. 1826 Bistro: Who knew brussels sprouts could taste so good?! Sit out in the center of Pendleton's historic square and enjoy great wine, ambiance and cuisine for lunch or dinner.
3. Mama Rae's Ice Cream Shoppe: The perfect spot to satisfy your sweet tooth on Main Street. After your dinner at 1826, walk across the street to this sweet ice cream parlor. Mama Rae's features Hershey's ice cream and deliciously creative sundaes. We can't recommend it enough!
4. The Smokin' Pig: Home of Clemson's (and ESPN College Game Day's!) favorite barbecue right here in Pendleton! Only open Thursday, Friday and Saturday, this is a must do if you're visiting. Enjoy corn hole and campfires while you wait for your table.
