I love the red cabbage salad (the raw one), but most things on the menu are way too rich, and make me feel sick, now. :( I used to love that place as a kid, though... I always used to get a kick out of seeing if I was tall enough to touch the snow on the roof yet... and I always wanted to play the "Love-O-Meter" game. LOL

I have been going to the one in Rosemead for years and still enjoy it. We probably go once or twice a year. I actually think the steaks are better now than they were a few years ago. They also used to frequently under cook them--not so much any more. I agree that the food is a little rich the older you get. I can't even imagine how bad the cheese toast and the cheese butter on the the baked potato are for you. Even so, it's still a guilty pleasure.
I remember a few years ago when they finally succumbed to political correctness (and maybe good taste) and took down most of the nude paintings and switched the waitresses from short skirts to pants. Those barmaid outfits they used to have were a little risqué for a family place.

The Boat is the bomb. I miss that place. Might have to stop by there on my next trip into LA.

Was at Northwoods last month for the Hubby's b-day.
Love the cheese bread!

I can only remember eating at a Northwoods Inn once in my life and it was a good 10+ years ago so I couldn't tell you if the food was good or not.

The La Mirada location still has the wall nudes. And I may have to agree with Deader that the steak was actually better then previous times at Clearmans.
