After coming to this restaurant most of my life, my husband suggested it for lunch. A waitress came to take our drink order and fill us in on specials for the day. For $20. you get a mini lobster tail and steak (mini Surf n Turf) It came with both salads, two pieces of delicious bread and it was delicious!... More

I have been to this restaurant many dozens of times and finally found a lousy meal. The Pepper steak wasn't worth the $10 +. The bun was stale, cheese laid in bottom was ok but no sauce/juice of any kind made for a very small,dry sandwich. Meat was fine, what there was of it, a few peppers and onions. Ordered... More

I have heard this restaurant is the highest grossing restaurant in Southern California. And they get super busy. The bar is huge and you can expect to wait an hour to having drinks. The steaks are extraordinary. They are gigantic. You can easily share a steak between two people. Two types of salads are mixed at your table: a lettuce... More

Although there is quite a large menu at Clearman's, it is in fact quite limited in reality...Steak, steak, hamburgers, and more steak. The food is relatively basic, with quantity being the important issue...quality does not enter the equation. Salads and so forth are complimentary, but Clearman's is not cheap. Our meal for 5 adults came to nigh on $350 before... More

The North Woods Inn has been around since the '60s and the food keeps bringing people back. I think this was the original Clearman's restaurant that spawned the chain. No matter what you order, it's great. Peanut shells on the floor and a real stuffed grizzly bear from times long gone - the atmosphere makes it good for business or... More

We had reservations. They were 10 minutes late seating us which wasn't too bad but it was late. The food is good, plentiful, and a decent value. Our waiter was overworked. He did a good job of staying on top of it but he had to many table and no help. I don't know why a bus boy didn't remove... More

The building is like an old lodge/lumberjack dining hall with fake snow on the roof. They have some nice animal amounts, even has the sawdust and peanuts on the floor. Cute but oh so 1960s trying to be a destination and charge like you are a captive tourist. Prices were high for the quality, 9 oz sirloin "lumberjack steak" withe... More

We are at the front room and ordered their happy hour specials. That's the way to go. Their garlic cheese bread is yummy. I like their red cabbage salad with their blue cheese salad. Red cabbage is tangy.

My husband worked here 49 years ago. Loved everything about Clearman's then and now! We visited on a Saturday evening and were seated immediately. The interior was pristine and exactly as it was all those years ago. Wood beams, beautiful wooden tables and chairs. Lots of red leather brining a warm and inviting ambiance. We were pleased to see the... More
