Calhoun Corners Restaurant, built in 1893 with local hand made brick, served as a civic and social center for the community of Calhoun, SC. It served as the original site of Fort Hill Presbyterian Church in 1895 and was then operated until 1957 as a general store by Norman Boggs. Following a renovation in 1974, the building was renamed Calhoun Corners, and finally became Calhoun Corners Restaurant in 1979.

Calhoun Corners Restaurant operated successfully until a fire in the early morning hours on November 1, 1997. With the Corontzes brothers’ and Olson family’s combined efforts, reconstruction plans were immediately pursued preserving everything possible from the original structure. The careful blending of the new construction to accentuate the preserved portions was completed, and Calhoun Corners Restaurant and Bar proudly reopened its doors in December 1998.

Calhoun Corners Restaurant  is quietly located one block off Highway 123 at 103 Clemson Street in Clemson, SC, near the Clemson University campus. Across the train tracks next door is  the original Amtrak station, which still operates and  is also home to the Clemson Chamber of Commerce and Train Museum.

The courtyard garden entrance at Calhoun Corners Restaurant lies under the shade of one of the state’s oldest Post Oak trees and is a favorite sitting spot for customers before or after dinner, especially for photos. Come enjoy the ambience Calhoun Corners has to offer for your next Clemson dining experience.
