My husband and I were hungry after a day spent in the mountains and it had been years since we had dined at a North Woods Inn. I just love the dark, man cave kind of décor with wood, faux leather and stuffed bear that...More

This is almost and institution in the East San Gabriel Valley. I do not believe I have ever had a bad meal there. It is known for its steaks but I like the fish. The cheese bread is unforgettable.

Haven't been to Clearman's in well over 20 years and after deciding to treat my Dad to a steak dinner, I chose to come here hoping we wouldn't have to wait too long. We arrived at about 4:00 and there were quite a few people...More

I stopped in here for lunch and sure glad I did. The portions are large, even for lunch and the service was pretty good.

The restaurant has one of the smallest menus. It's a single page and there are no appetizers, and only two deserts, both sundaes. We didnot have alcohol or deserts and our bill was $226 for four (including tip) so a little pricey. The food however...More

I grew up new this Clearman's North Woods Inn--it was always the special occasion restaurant. My best friend's grandfather used to play piano in the lounge, when there was a piano. The bar is still there, as is the restaurant, seemingly miles and miles of...More

Unfortunately Northwoods Inn does not accept reservations. It gets very crowded so I recommend if you go at dinner time, be prepared to wait.
