About Us

Irv and MikeIrv Harrington and Mike McHenry opened Sardi’s Den in 1995; it quickly became a favorite among Clemson students, staff, alumni, locals and tourists alike and is one of the longest running traditions in the area. Shortly after opening we began offering catering services, featuring our signature Tailgating “To-Go” packages which are popular with both Clemson sports fans and residents throughout the entire county.
Sardi’s Den has become a local and beloved institution for good reason: exceptional and distinctive food served in a casual and welcoming atmosphere. Our ribs, made from a secret recipe, have been described as having “the perfect combination of hickory smoke, sweetness and spice” with a “tender but meaty texture.” The remainder of our menu has drawn rave reviews as well, with diners calling Sardi’s Den burgers the best they’ve ever eaten and “coma-inducing.”

The Original Sardi's DenOur business model is not only a restaurant and lounge that the locals keep coming back to, but a destination eatery for tourists as well. Sardi’s Den is a well-known rib joint, in the best definition of the word, but also a place where customers can enjoy exceptional seafood, barbeque, burgers, wings, salads, steaks, chicken and more among friends; creating the entire dining experience customers are looking for.

The Sardi’s Den formula has stood the test of time and can be recreated in your community through our comprehensive franchising program.
