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.

I've been going to this restaurant since I was a kid and believe me, that was a long time ago. Consistently excellent food and service! Love the cheese bread too!!

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

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.
