When does a "freebie" go way above-and-beyond this ol' veteran's wildest expectations? When it's hosted so honorably and generously by Keith, CJ's SCP Manager. Wife and I were ably and courteously served our meals by Matthew Haynes. In short, we felt honored to be there and will join them again soon. We salute Keith and Matthew, as well as Claim... More

We were treated to a birthday dinner in the Fountain Valley location. It was the first time we had been to the CJ in many, many years. In fact, we rememberd the great happy hours they use to have and dancing the night away in the bar area. No more, lots of seating where dance floor use to be! It's... More

The reason for my title is, we couldn't find the place. We called the restaurant asking for directions. No one had the gumption to tell us that it was in the Mall. We were first timers at this location, how were we to know? We finally got there. It was crowded, but the food was as good as we expected.... More

I used to love Claim Jumpers. I remember when they first started appearing in Orange County, but I have to say the South Coast Plaza was disappointing. I don't know if it was an off day for them, if the acquisition of them by Landry's has effected the quality or what, but it was a disappointing meal. The French onion... More

I go to this restaurant near to my house all the time. Have not been here in a couple of months over summer. Portions are shrinking, you no longer get muffins with your meal. No apple. Food size is smaller but the plate is still huge. Service is poor. They were not busy last night. Waitress Ruffie. Did not remove... More

We often eat here before going to the theater across the street. Reliably good food, fast and courteous service. No problem with sharing a dinner, and the portions are adequate.

Awesome place to eat at any time. Great steaks, salad bar is so complete and my favorite part is desserts! I have visited many locations and all of them are just great. You can have a romantic dinner after 8pm to avoid family atmosphere or bring the whole family for a fun dinner night. Large tables accommodate big groups and... More

I love, love, love the Happy Hour offerings at this Claim Jumper restaurant. For less than $10.00 I can have a nice cocktail and small pizza right up until 6:30 p.m. Can't beat the service either!

I don't know why, but they always get our order wrong at this location. The food is decent and there is a big selection, but it's not anything special. It's a good choice if you're going across the street to the theater with children and you want something casual and easy.
