A huge portion of great tasting food is considered to be the norm at Clearman�s North Woods Inn of Larada. Come early and enjoy happy hour with friends and colleagues. This is a place where you can have your favorite drink, complemented well with any of a dozen appetizers on the menu. This includes onion rings, chicken wings and much more.
At Clearman�s North Woods Inn, the customer is in control. Order a juicy T-bone steak grilled to your exact specifications.

For the seafood lovers out there, Clearman�s North Woods Inn offers several fresh catches, including fish of the day and lobster tail.
Food and service is always excellent. Love both of their salads (letttuce with blue cheese & red cabbage). Can't get enough of the cheese bread. A fun place to go with friends. You can munch on peanuts and throw the shells on the floor. Our kids grew up going there and have fond memories.
I just wish I lived closer so I could dine here more. Great food, great service, great atmosphere.
Hostess, Erica, was amazing. We sat in the bar which was a mistake because our server was not very attentive. Seemed very routine. Food is always excellent & on point so we'll always come back! Please don't change anything.
We loved that we could get a reservation on " Open Table" first time we didn't have to wait !
I had been looking forward to eating after hearing so much about the peanut shells on the floor and the woodsy ambiance. What a huge letdown!! First there were three in our party and we were seated not in a booth or table in the well lit warm conducive to having a nice dining experience instead area. We were instead seated in the land of the lost ( back of the house). Were it was dark and became increasingly colder as we ate. Now here's the kicker one of my party was celebrating a birthday and I had mentioned it to my sever "Don" he said he would take care of it. Well he didn't !! He either forgot or just blew it off because they wanted to close that section of the house. As we left we walked through the well lit warm very lively dining area that I imagined we would experience, instead we were in the land of the lost.
Thought this place would be a great steakhouse based on the amount of cars we see there every weekend. Overall staff was courteous and friendly except our server. She never smiled, didn't explain the menu or food preparation and when. We asked how the ribs were prepared, she said sarcastically "In the oven." She obviously didn't want to be there and seemed to not know she was in the service field.
Now for the food, seems overpriced for the quality. I would have expected higher quality than a country diner for my $35 meal. There were 3 of us in our party, each ordered steak, 2 medium rare one medium we'll, all 3 came rare.
Very disappointed. Rather go to the Ranch in Anaheim and spend a few more dollars on my meal for better service and quality .
I hadn't eaten at a Northwoods Inn since Belmont Shore probably 15 years ago. We had a great experience before heading to the La Mirada Theater for a performance. We we definitely be back!
One of the best steakhouses in SoCal. All the food is great and professional service always. A must try.
Northwoods inn is always a treat. The steaks are amazing in every way imaginable. Plus, you get to eat all of the peanuts you can stomach.
Janine our waitress was on her JOB. She didn't skip a beat. Very friendly, remembers all of her orders and placed everything in front of the right person who had order it. We never had to ask for anything because she kept up with asking us first and bringing items that we wanted without having to ask. Impeccable service by Janine. We will definitely ask for her every time we come to Northwoods Inn
3 adults and 4 kids = wonderful dining experience. Thanks
One of a kind menu, with the best endless salad and cheese bread on the planet. Entrees are very well prepared and very "tasty"... Great service and bar.
The best ever garlic butter cheese bread..and 2 kinds of salad that compliment it perfectly!
North Woods Inn is a more rustic Clearman's restaurant, (the other local one being the fine-dining Steak and Stein in Pico Rivera). That said the food is just as good and the service is timely without being intrusive. Reasonably priced wines to pair with wonderful steaks and of course the famous Clearman's Cheese Bread (can't get enough).
While this is a popular eating establishment, the food was not that good. Would not go back.
Love, love, love Northwood's Inn. It is the go-to restaurant for special occasions. Go every year for my birthday and my husband's birthday. Since we live a distance away, that is about all we can do each year. If we were closer, we would be there more often.
If you've never been, don't be afraid to try their cheese butter. Get extra and put on your steak! YUM!
Been coming here for 20+ years. My steak was not how I asked it to be prepared. I asked for Medium Well and it came out Medium Rare. When it came back out, it was burned to a crisp (Well Done). Everything else was great, but unfortunately for the cost, the meat needs to be prepared correctly.
My partner and I were looking for a nice pre-show dinner before a show at the La Mirada theater. We made reservations for 2 were seated at a table for 8 in a family section. Server was borderline rude. Food was ok but on par with Outback or other chain steakhouses that charge 25% less. All in all a very awkward, mediocre dinner. We won't be back.
Northwoods Inn is a classic family favorite. The ambience is a unique blend of hunting lodge and grandma's house. We all love being able to throw the peanut shells on the floor. The host and server were both great. The food is consistent. It is expensive for what it is - average, not-so-healthy American fare. But you are paying for the whole experience, and you always end up with enough leftovers for another entire meal.
Enjoyable Family Reunion - we had relatives visit from Back East
They were staying up in Santa Monica - we drove from San Diego
Another relative drove from the valley.
