Located on Lake Hartwell and within Clemson's newest luxury hotel and resort, Traditions on the Lake offers travelers and locals New Southern American cuisine with a classic twist using fresh locally-sourced ingredients. Legendary Clemson football coach Frank Howard believed in giving 110% to the game. We uphold those very same time-honored Clemson traditions with every dish we serve.
That's why on our menu, you'll find free-range, grass-fed, antibiotic- and hormone-free meats, organically grown produce, and house-made pasta. Because some things are best done the old-fashioned way. The grand indoor fireplace and outdoor lakeside patio are two perfect places to enjoy a cocktail or order dessert with friends and family. The orange-onyx backlit bartop adds to the upscale ambiance and invites guests to choose from a wide selection of beer, wine, and spirits.
