Had not been there in years but it was like stepping back in time. Food is very good but oh so over priced. My daughter ordered crab add on to her meal and it turned out to be a $40 addition to an already ridiculous steak price. If you have money to burn and can put up with a surly... More

This place is definitely unique...from the moment you walk thru the door! Love, love, love the bread they bring to the table, it is sooo good!!! I also like their steaks with baked potato..YUMMMM! Service is great, the vibe is really cool, and the food is always tasty. I like this place when I'm in the mood for something different... More

Had lunch today at the quirky Clearman's North Woods Inn. The architecture is part of the 1950s style that was trying to appeal to the Southern California auto culture. It is reminiscent of an Alaskan lodge. The exterior is fun to look at with its fake snow covered roof and the interior take the theme further truly making you feel... More

Love the older place that still allow you to throw peanuts shells or remember your youth. Food is plentiful but not your best cuts of meat. You will never leave here hungry! Enjoy the cheesebread and the two types of salad, with your meals. Take your friend and a doggie bag home!

We've been going to Clearman's for nearly 40 years. Some things don't NEED to change. It's still a moderately priced steakhouse with good/great food. No, it's not a Morton's or Ruth's Chris, but its not priced that way either.

This place has been around since my teens and Im a senior now- The menu is a bit limited, the prices are ok, the bread and salads are legend and the entrees are great. There is a back room which we have used for family reunions and the service is fine where ever you sit.

I've been frequenting this place for decades. I love the salads, rice, and steak. Other entrees don't tend to meet my expectations. But management keeps flip-flopping on whether they serve the full menu in the bar area or not, which is where I sit if Im on my own. They also keep changing whether you can order entrees for take...

I had not been to that place where the roof was always covered in white and the floor was covered with peanut shells since I was a child in the 60s. We met for a family reunion yesterday and I was kind of shocked by the prices. (Avg plate was about $35). The "Waitress" really did not want to indulge... More

This restaurant has been around for a long time. Saw dust on the floor and lot's of noise but the food is good. The prices are ranged so that you can spend as little or as much money as you like. Lot's of food on the plate too - you'll probably take food home. Service is quick and good. I... More
