    We had an amazing experience, from the inviting ambience, attentiveness of the staff, and last but not least the food. The food presentation and taste were outstanding. The filet was cooked perfectly!

    Given the price, I expected a much better quality meal. The steak just wasn't the same quality that I have had at other high end steakhouses.

    This is the BEST place to eat in Clemson. We love everything about it. Our server Indis ( I’m not sure that’s the correct spelling ) was wonderful but we’ve never had a bad experience there with anyone or anything ! The food is consistently outstanding. Reservations are a must - even on weeknights. We can’t wait to come back.

    We celebrated my wife’s birthday at Rick Erwin’s. We’ve been multiple times to various RE and we really enjoy the Clemson location the best. Call it the “Clemson Effect” or whatever you like but there is a difference. From the moment you walk in it just feels different. A warm smile greets you as soon as you come in. I’m assuming some of these employees are Clemson students but they are always sweet, inviting, and attentive. I believe our hostess was “Kenna”. She welcomed us and asked for our name. As soon as I told her she smiled brightly and wished my wife a happy birthday. That alone meant the world to us that the hostess took the time to note that it was her birthday on the reservation. Then the manager, Liam, walked up and welcomed us and also wished my wife a happy birthday. You already know that the experience is going to be spectacular when details like this are taken care of. We were sat in a booth and there was a card signed by the staff with more birthday wishes. We settled in and our waitress, Courtney, greeted us with southern charm and an attitude that assured us that we were going to have a great dining experience. And this young lady could sell ketchup to an Eskimo wearing white gloves because if she mentioned it, we ordered it. The drinks that were on special for that night - gottem’! The buffalo cauliflower appetizer - yes ma’am! And we don’t even like spicy, but it was delicious! My wife took advantage of the 3 course special and I literally ordered the steak Courtney mentioned (wet aged ribeye) and the lobster tail. My wife’s entree portion was a small filet and it is so consistently good that she simply doesn’t waver from ordering it. I’ve never ordered the wet aged ribeye and let me tell you, it was phenomenal. Cooked perfectly and so flavorful that I savored every bite. With a lobster tail and mac & cheese, my meal was fantastic. So, when in Clemson, go to RE and enjoy the hospitality and the atmosphere of exquisite dining in a small town!

    Dinner and dessert took forever to arrive and my dish was warm at best. The short rib was tasty but very tough and dry. But because we waited so long for our dinner to be served I did not send it back.

    The manager was extremely kind in trying to make everything right but our meal was awful. From 2 of our dinners having their medium rare steaks served raw in the middle, to the mashed potatoes being over salted and inedible, to the brussel sprouts being extra salty it was a very disappointing meal. Even after sending the meat back twice it still wasn’t right - chewy and overall fatty. The best thing were the rolls and the truffle fries but all in all a very disappointing meal.

    We had a short wait for our reserved table but no big deal. Once seated we ordered drinks and water, appetizers. We enjoyed the fried green tomatoes very much. They brought out rolls & we received our salads. We did not get offered refills on our water until we already had our main dish. We did not get offered a water jug until dessert was served. Besides that the food was great

    We are fairly new to the area, and are trying different restaurants. RErwin’s has already become our “go-to” place for a nice night out. The food, and especially the service never disappoint. A special shout out to Emerson, who has been our server twice now.

    This is my third time coming to this location. I wanted to come back and celebrate my birthday. This first trip visits were amazing and seamless experience. Last night was different, when we first arrived it went great but as the night went on it started going down hill. Drinks were not refilled, we had to wait a while for a sweet tea refill. Our steaks took longer to come and unfortunately the steaks were not as tender as the visits before. The waiter seems rushed and confused. It was disappointing since we were celebrating my birthday and felt neglected towards the end of our visit. Rick Erwin’s is one of our favorite restaurants to attend on date night or celebrations. I hope it will be better next time.

    We were here last Thursday and the food was phenomenal. We went back Saturday and it was great, but not phenomenal. The exact same dish didn’t taste the same. One of our meals was comped. It was weird. Been here many times and it’s always exquisite. I am being ultra critical since RE’s has such high standards.
