“Decent college bar”

We went on Friday afternoon before game day. Decent crowd and a pretty open layout. They JD a good collection of craft beers. We didn't eat but folks around us were and the food looked good, especially the burgers we saw.

I wanted to give this place a chance. Honestly, I went back twice to be sure I hadn't unintentionally been rude to the bouncer. But he was such a jerk. A truly nasty person. I have money to spend in this bar but will not go back. Customer service matters even to old people in a college town on game day.

Great place for great food, drinks with incredible food! A college town bar that has great food. Thanks for the hospitality when we took my son on his first year at Clemson! Cory and his staff were amazing! Ron Hill

I've only been for lunch, but the food is excellent. Not as many choices as some places, but what they have is very good. They have different specials each day and I haven't had a bad one there.
Their Friday BBQ Quesadilla is excellent, with real pulled pork and good sauce, and homemade pub chips are great. The place is very small, and popular, so you might have trouble finding a seat during prime lunch hours.

There is usually nothing terribly unique or outstanding about college town bars and grills. Comfort and a laid back vibe are cherished over the quality of the offerings. Loose Change exemplifies those characteristics, which is not a slam of the place in any way. It is what it is and it does it quite well. Funky bar decor with a whole ton of junk nailed to every flat surface is run of the mill but is a style that never feels stuffy. Service was actually very good with the wait staff seemingly working as a team to make sure that patrons were well attended. That is a massive leap over other establishments of the same ilk across the country.

As for food, everything was just as expected. Bar food served like good bar food should be served. They had a good selection of ice cold beers on tap and the servers were knowledgeable about the taste and qualities of all of the microbrews, which was nice given the shear number of beers in the world today the vast number of which no one has ever heard of.

Fast, efficient, friendly service, interesting, cold draught beer, and good enough food would have me returning the next time in Clemson. Until then,

Bon appetit!
