Clearman's Northwoods Inn of Covina

Postby Lynxwiler » Sun Apr 18, 2004 6:53 pm

Tonight was my first Northwoods Inn experience and it was wonderful! Everything was fried or greasy or covered in cheese or butter -- my potato was covered in cheese-butter! Even the vegetables were fattening. How have I missed this for so long?

If you have not been, you must go. Sure the exterior is coated in dirty faux snow, but the expansive interior is delightful. Sawdust and peanut shells on the floor were an unexpected novelty as was the piano bar and nudie paintings on every wall.

Vegetarians may have a hard time trying to create a meal at the Northwoods Inn, but at the very least you should stop by for a drink.

I hope the Clearman's restaurants stick around a little longer.

540 North Azusa Ave, Covina

earlier on here. The Clermans at Huntington and Rosemead is staying but the shopping center around it is coming down.
Their red cabbage salad is great.
Only theirs and the cole slaw from the Woodville Inn (?) in Kansas are the best (none of the drippy KFC stuff!!)

I was recently at the Northwoods Inn on Rosemead, and in the waiting room is a drawing of the Kohl's store that's going to replace Clearman's Village (and uglify Northwoods Inn). The drawing is identified as a "proposed development" that will be completed in late '05. Apparently, the boat near Northwoods will remain.

BTW, another thing a vegetarian can order there is the cobb salad without meat. It's a large serving.

What, no mention of the garlic cheese bread? You can buy a couple of slices for about 40 cents.
And most supermarkets sell the spread.

I heard that the Boat was going to move & that everything else was going. Most of the leasees from the shopping center are already gone, but I think one or two were planning on fighting. My parents live in Arcadia, I'll see what info they have & what the local papers say.

I just went over there on my lunch break to take some photos - so sad to see the little village in the back basically abandoned....

It's all still there (for now).

The bartender at The Galley said that the process has become bogged down because the Clearman Village's neighbors were complicating the process by requiring extra street & site landscaping to mitigate the expected property value decrease of living next to a Kohl's.

He also recommended the Steak & Stein in Pico Rivera for the best food in the old Clearman's chain.
