Clearman's warm and rustic atmosphere is most relaxing and comfortable. And the food is beyond excellent. Come hungry, because the servings are huge. This steak house is better than the extremely high priced competitors, and will always be our favorite! You won't be disappointed.

North Woods is wonderful! Never had a bad meal there.My only complaint is they are pricey! Had lobster here and it is always excellent. Better than seafood restaurants. Yummy steaks, too!

I always eat here when I am in the area. This place is,a classic. The 2 salads that come with dinners are to die for as is their famous cheese bread. Good selection of steaks and seafood served with a huge baked potato with cheese sauce. Service is top knotch. A good place to reconnect with old friends or family... More

As usual Our service was excellent! The waiting area is old school where you could order beverages and eat peanuts and throw the shells on the floor. We always opt for the all you can eat salad and cheesy bread. The ladies and some of the guys like the cabbage salad, I go for the green salad with the house... More

Delicious food, especially the salads and cheese bread (unlimited), and a cosy setting. By paying 8 dollars extra we were able to share a plate, which was the perfect amount for the two of us since the steak also came with a big baked potato filled with butter and delicious rice. And the service was very good as well!

This place never gets old...EVER. The exterior resembles a snow top covered mountain restaurant. When you walk inside, lots a fun fake tiffany lamps, red... More

Always packed there but this is just my personal opinion. I think a lot of people think "big" means "good." The cheese bread and cabbage are stales of this restaurant but it just doesn't justify the price to me. There's nothing special about the steak preparation. Ambiance is a plus. But, they probably don't what I think because they're constantly... More

I have been eating at Northwoods since I was a child back in the 1960's. The food is amazingly good and you get large portions. The steaks, halibut, lobster, scallops are sooooo good. Everything is really good. I've never had a bad meal there. The salads, red and green are the best. The cheese bread is to die for. You... More
