This is almost and institution in the East San Gabriel Valley. I do not believe I have ever had a bad meal there. It is known for its steaks but I like the fish. The cheese bread is unforgettable.

I stopped in here for lunch and sure glad I did. The portions are large, even for lunch and the service was pretty good.

I grew up new this Clearman's North Woods Inn--it was always the special occasion restaurant. My best friend's grandfather used to play piano in the lounge, when there was a piano. The bar is still there, as is the restaurant, seemingly miles and miles of...More

I particularly like the scallops and red cabbage salad - those are my favorites. The rest of my family can always find choices they are happy with. Sometimes it is hard not to fill up on the peanuts. The cheese butter is good. Service has...More

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