Right. You don't go to Clearman's for the best steak in the world. It is overpriced. You go there because of the other food like the salads and potatoes, and it's a really cool place to take kids because of the shtick/atmosphere. When I was a kid I always loved being able to throw my peanuts on the floor. Hehe.

Nommie and I ate there once in San Gabriel. The food I had wasn't too bad (I had a sandwich, I guess I was missing out on the good stuff) at all. However, our garlic bread was too soggy and greasy. I guess someone went overkill w/ the garlic spread. So we ended up taking it home, and the following day when I toasted the garlic bread, it actually tasted a whole lot better and less soggy too.
Hopefully next time I'll try the steak and take home a whole bunch of bread and even the spread itself.

we love clearmans and buy their spread & make the best grilled cheese with it.

I grew up at Edwards Steakhouse. Always had the Pink Lady roast beef. Would always take home some of the salad dressing too. Was a shame when they closed the Downtown LA location, they knew my family by name there.

Northwoods Inn and Edwards are sooo good. Luv their bread and salad. Their steak isn't bad either. Sure it's a bit overpriced, but for a "once in a while" place, it's quite acceptable.

Oh I agree about Chris N Pitt's. It sucked the last I went there too.

I used to say Chris N Pitts is were old waitresses go to die. They have replaced Loves BBQ as the beehive capital of the US.
