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

I have been coming to this place since it opened more that 50 years ago. The food is still very good and the service is great. Tonight we had Kenneth who has been here 26 years and he was great.

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

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
