“Disappointing Experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

We head over to Clearview each time we are up North. This time we had a disappointing experience. They do not take reservations. We sent two members of our party of nine ahead to put our name in. Apparently, just before the balance of the group arrived the table was given away, so we had a 15 minute wait. Our group was split into two tables. Our daughter's fish was fraught with bones (the waitress said "it's fish, so you have to expect that" and her fiancé's fish was undercooked. She did not reappear in a timely fashion for it to be sent back. Given the many other dining options, not sure we'll be back.

“Fantastic food every time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

Everything we have ever had has been delicious, people and waitresses so friendly and helpful. Every bite is great, tried half the items on the menu, never miss going here when we are in the area. I usually have chicken or steak and always awesome, my husband loves all of the fish dishes. Great salad before meal.

“Classic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

Our wait for a table was spent in the roomy bar that was noisy and friendly. The drinks were excellent when we finally caught the attention of the bar tender.

I ordered the pork medallions wrapped in bacon and my wife ordered the pork rib eye. We both felt the pork was some of the best we ever had. High marks were also given by other members of orour group for the broasted chicken and scampi encrusted chicken. The prime rib was a disappointment, tougher than it should have been. The tableside service was excellent and made up for the bar experience.

Bottom line we had a nice time and will return.

“Awesome!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Had one of the best dinners of our weeks stay!! Saturday night prime was the best ever! Had a few old-fashioneds at the bar after a small wait, good conversation with other guests at the bar. Love the way the bar is comfy and cozy as well as the dining room. Service was excellent and everyone was so friendly. My wife had the chicken marsala and is ruined from ever ordering it anywhere else! Has a tasty cream sauce. Can't wait to come back this Fall.

“OK dining experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

Our group of 6 had dinner at the Clearview during peak tourist season, mid-July. I've been here before for their fish fry, and it was great. On this visit we ordered off the menu, and while some of the people in our party said their dinner was good, myself and one other person had the Mango shrimp, which had record-high sodium with it's spicy rub. It was so salty, and the shrimp was over cooked to near rubber. My friend ordered the garlic mashed potatoes which were good, but the wild rice medley was sticky, overcooked and salty - Uncle Ben's rice would have been better. When we asked about the dessert menu, I inquired as to whether they made their own desserts, to which the server responded "we have them brought in" - so I asked, "like from a local bakery or from Sysco", and she said "Sysco". We appreciated the honesty, but a homemade dessert at a supper club would have been a great offering.
