Has lost the luster

Been coming here off and on for years, always made it a point to stop in for at least one meal while visiting SoCal after I didn't live there anymore. Maybe the bar and expectations have been raised a little to high now. Quality and portion size seemed a little off on last visit. Service as... read more

This was first time at North Woods Inn. I wanted to try it after driving by it on the highway and noticing the log cabin with the snow on the roof. The inside also has nice theming. I knew from other reviews that they served large portions so I skipped the apetizer. Every entree comes with two types of salad... More

Many years ago, I visited Clearman's frequently. Revisited them last week and was very disappointing. Service was fine, fries were fine, saw-dust on the floor was fine, hamburger was dry and without taste. Will be a while before I visit again

The atmosphere is quaint log cabin. The cedar shavings and peanut shells add to the informal setting. Large TV's on the walls, dim lighting, needed a flashlight to read the menu. Menu was decent, dinners a bit pricy. Had the pastrami dip sandwich on rye, it was good. The little salad had a tasty house dressing. The rice was either... More

This is an old tired outdated restaurant whose menu was really great 20 years ago. Time for a change. The salads were soaked in salad dressing or maybe swimming is a better word! They offer a steak or fried chicken with 2 sides. Our server was pushing the baked potato so we ordered it only to discover it comes with... More

Celebrating with the family (total of 8 people) we were seated quickly which was nice and was able to order relatively fast. The salad was great but once the food arrived from hamburgers to steak. We were all disappointed with the quality. For the price you pay and having been known for the good steak it's a shame you have... More

When you enter, you will be astounded by the theming. There are bear traps and skins and taxidermy animals everywhere. But the strangest thing was the peanut shells that COVERED the floor. However, the food was very good especially the prime rib dip.

It was just okay, for the prices not the best. We had a gift bag with us for our anniversary and the server never asked are you celebrating anything with us tonight? She was really just phoning it in that day. The scallops were broiled and really over cooked.

First off, this is a somewhat unique place to visit and eat at. As you can read from other reviews, this is a restaurant one goes for an experience and then the food. That said, the food is not to be dismissed either. While not truly fine dining, the cost does comes close to being comparable to some fine dinning... More

Enjoyed the peanut shells on the floor and rustic interior. Large portions, very good meat. Only downside was we were in a big room in the back and it was noisy, so hard to hear each other at the table.
