Bakery
“Half bakery and half restaurant! We love this place for everything they offer. They are only open for breakfast and lunch. We highly suggest the Sunday brunch but you might need to get there early!”

Restaurant
“Mac's offers homemade hamburgers, beer-battered onion rings, milkshakes and sweet tea. The short order-style bar has been open since 1956 and diners from all over keep coming back. "USA Today Travel" named Mac's Drive-In one of the 51 Great Burger Joints in the country. To say that it's one of Clemson's most famous eateries is an uderstatement. It's an icon and the place for good burgers and good conversations.”
