I do not see what all the fuss is about. Out of all of the Mellow Mushrooms that I have been to, this one has the least amount of beers on tap/bottled. The ONLY beers that I found unique to this mellow mushroom were the following: RJ Rockers Buckwheat, RJ Rockers Honey Amber Ale, RJ Rockers Bell Ringer DIPA, Purple Haze. There are 9 beers on tap total, and the above 4 are the most unique. Other than these, Stella, Sam, Blue Moon, and two others that were obviously forgettable.

The service was outstanding, and the pizza delicious as usual, however to only have 9 beers on tap (5 of which are common) should not produce a high BA rating in my opinion

Selection is pretty poor, only a few beers on Tap and bottles are CRAZY expensive. During our most recent trip I was served a Bud instead of the Hop Devil that I ordered, when confronted the waitress said that's what you ordered, and since I took a 'Sip' its mine now. The Mgmt couldn't care less what happened. Oh, And I had to pay for the hop devil too at $4.00 for a draft that I didint get.

Also the food during my few trips here have totally sucked too, the pizza is always burnt, and the subs are usually pretty meh.

The only reason this place is still open is its proximity to Clemson's campus and the Student apartments. Do yourself a favor, go downtown.

Made the mistake of trying to stop in here once right after a home game, never made that mistake again, actually could not even get in that day. But I did manage to make it back out there outside of season. Nice place, looked like a house to be honest. I was impressed with the seating outside, as it was very nice out and that is where I chose to eat. Selection was decent at best, the others around the southeast are much better, and being a college town I would have thought it would be better. Lots of locals, even some of the Western North Carolina brews I seldom see in my area, French Broad and Foothills, which was very nice to see. But other then that not really anything special. The bottle selection was forgettable. The food was great, however the service was very slow and did not seem to know much about the brew. Overall though the place was decent, I would even attempt it during a game, but outside of that seemed pretty decent.

Nice atmosphere. Old 2-story house with large holes cut in the second story floor. Outside seating on the porch and patio as well. Parking at this place can be a pain. Very small lot, with a lot of "will I get towed here?" parking not far away.

Above average selection for South Carolina standards. A few locals, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, and some others. They seem to want to have a decent beer menu.

Excellent food... mostly pizza and subs. Service has always been pretty good when I've been.

One of the better bets in town if you're looking for good food AND beer.

Edit: Beer selection update: Last visit they had many brews from RJ Rockers (SC), as well as French Broad (NC).

The place has a really nice outside. It looks like a misplaced colonial style house with a parking lot. When you walk inside, the ceilings are cut out to reveal upstairs which is decorated as if it were intended to be a house and as if you couldn't see through the second story floors.

The service is pretty good. This place seems to draw most of the hippies from Clemson so they're overly friendly and they seem to be a tightly knit group of servers.

The selection is decent at best. They have locals (Terrapin, Highland, Thomas Creek) and some imports that you could buy in most grocery stores. It's not bad but it's not great.

The pies are great. These guys toss great pizzas and like most MMs they will use good toppings like spinach or pretty much what you want.

The beers are pretty cheap here. This is certainly one of the better stops in Clemson as it has pretty good beers with less crowds as it isn't downtown and very friendly service. Overall this is one of the better stops in Clemson, SC.
