North Woods Inn

Clearman's has long been a staple in the area, and always lives up to it's reputation. The family style eating is consistently good and plentiful. If you are looking for the same quality and comfort you have always known, it won't disappoint.

I had not eaten at a Clearman's Northwoods inn, in several years. The food was how I remembered it, very good, and large portions. Peanuts and throw your shells on the floor. No room for desert. Went on a Saturday night, many large party s, but our waiter still was able to provide good service for our party of two.

This place is an institution and I have loved eating here since I was a kid 50 years ago. The menu is as it was back then with the unique and tasty salads, cheesy goodness cheese bread and flavorful steaks with the whipped cheese topped baked potato. Great ambiance and moderate price make this a must if you're in the... More

It is a festive place on Friday evenings, with talented one man band, tv's and lots of stuff to look at. Very festive place for family and friends with good food, appreciate the monthly coupon which is why we come in, makes it a sweet deal

The North Woods Inn is always a good spot for a unique experience. Sawdust & peanut shells on the floors, peanuts on the table give this restaurant its own casual atmosphere. The food is very good!

Steak cooked perfect..we ordered porter house steak & lumber jack steak .. enjoyed the cheese whip on potato got side of gravy to taste ..was good. The salad was different but very tasty when mixed together. Only thing instead of rice & potato (starch on starch) veggies would of been nice. We wil be back again.

Long wait for seating and service. Nice Decor. Food was very good. Love the Salad. But, a little too much money for the average tourist. Used to lie in San Gabriel years ago and would eat there alot. Now, however, it just seems to have lost it's original charm.They do have some of the best steaks on the West Coast,... More

North Woods is the type of place that you remember from your early days. It was always a place to celebrate birthdays and special occasions. If one goes back these days, nothing has changed. They still have the best garlic toast. I like the two salads (blue cheese and red cabbage with garlic toast - all you can eat) !... More

I recently stopped for dinner at Clearman's while in town for the Rose bowl. You see I have memories of eating at Clearman's with my parents back in the 70's. When I was a kid this was by far my favorite place to eat and it still is in my top 5. When I knew i was going to be... More

This was our first time at this restaurant. The atmosphere is very nice with rustic items and articles and other interesting artwork are the walls. Although the food was adequate , the portions are large. What made this experience great was the service by our server Steve.
