John Clearman wanted to open a restaurant where his friends and family would enjoy good times and great meals. If he were here now, he’d be pleased to know that many, many families have enjoyed those memorable moments at his namesake restaurants including the popular Clearman’s North Woods Inn in San Gabriel.
His vision in 1958 of the woodsy atmosphere of a snow-toped hunting lodge is still being appreciated today and is such a draw that San Gabriel Valley families plan all of their special occasion meals there. Originally located in Monrovia, the restaurant was moved due to the 210 freeway construction in 1966 to San Gabriel.
Eventually, two more North Woods restaurants, the Steak ‘n’ Stein and The Galley were added to the Clearman’s family of restaurants.
Warm in the winter and a cool retreat in the summer, the environment is ‘log cabin timeless’ with an interior just as unique as the exterior. Diners enjoy the beautiful leaded glass windows, antique chandeliers and old-time paintings. But, it’s not stuffy. Fun and peanut shells on the floor are encouraged.
What families really come for are the lumber-jack sized portions, from ample appetizers to enormous salads, dinner entrées and finally, yummy desserts.
Few can resist seconds of the famous Cheese Bread either. The lunch and dinner menu is full of top quality steaks, lots of seafood choices like lobster tail and jumbo shrimp, roasted chicken, and so much more. The lunch sandwiches and sides are huge as well. It’s a great place for your next office party or client lunch.
Mr. Clearman would definitely approve of the cocktail hour bites that draw sports fans wanting a family room atmosphere in which to watch their favorite teams play.
Enjoy your next great meal at Clearman’s North Woods Inn. We have three locations in San Gabriel, Covina and La Mirada. For more details, visit www.clearmans.com.
