OUR STORY

When you sit in 1801 Grille – made from the very bricks that once belonged on USC’s original horseshoe wall – you sit among centuries of university traditions and camaraderie. Quite a few new traditions are born here, too: Thursday happy hours that become sacred ritual; game-night burgers that turn into good-luck charms; the families who send a freshman to college with a good meal who return to celebrate family weekends and, in a flash, graduation. 

 

Plenty changes beyond these walls. But inside, 1801 Grille offers the comfort of your favorite meals – crafted with care and prepared with high-quality ingredients – to enjoy with your favorite people. And what tradition could be better than that?

History of University of South Carolina

The University of South Carolina in Columbia was founded in 1801. Originally known as South Carolina College, it was established as part of an effort to unite South Carolinians in the wake of the American Revolutionary War. The institution struggled through the years following the Civil War, undergoing many changes to its student population and curriculum and even closing its doors in 1877. Although the University faced great difficulties in the ensuing decades, it persevered. And, in the ‘60s and ‘70s, student enrollment skyrocketed. The University underwent a period of rapid growth which continued for many years, making it one of the most well-respected research universities in the South today.
