This place has some of the best steaks ever. Their baked potatoes are like a small football. The cheese bread is awsome. Love eating here. The service and atmosphere is excellent.

We have been coming to the Clearman's restaurant for over forty years. I love the blue cheese and cabbage salads. The steaks are perfect, the cheese bread is mouth watering and you eat peanuts and throw the shells on the floor.

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