Top of the Tavern
Ranked #71 of 135 Restaurants in Clemson
Restaurant details
Reviewed 14 August 2016

Years before you could get a license to sell alcohol on Sundays in Clemson, the only way to get around the blue laws was to have a private club. This is why the Top of the Tavern exists. Because now there are other bars that serve on Sunday, the Tavern has become more of a hidden treasure. Because it's a private club, you can smoke there. Also the pool tables are free. There is a membership fee, but it's a whole $1 for a year. They also sell beer to go at reasonable prices. The staff is great, and the atmosphere is very relaxed. This is more of a locals scene and is a nice escape from the rowdy college bars. It's also a great location (right upstairs from Tiger Town Tavern), and you can sit at tables and watch the drunken crowds below. They also have some great old school video games and darts.

Local, dumpy Clemson bar. Great for playing pool after the other bars close on Saturday nights. Cheap beer prices. Usually open late.
