Good Food / Good Portions

Every time we have eaten here, the food has been consistantly good and the portions large - especailly for the price. They offer car service now which we take advantage of a couple times per month. This makes it very easy to pick up your food. Also, I know they encourage ordering off their web... read more

Having previously dined in the Mission Viejo Claim Jumper I thought it was time to add a review. The trick is not to begin your experience eating the Mother Lode cake which is a killer (for anyone watching their caloric intake). You will never be disappointed with any of the steak selections.

The menu is always a favortie... good comfort food and the portions are so out of control anymore. One ordered chicken fried steak and loved it. One ordered the cheese tortilini with chicken and it was doused in green parsley which was a disspointment.

You can't eat more volume or quality than here. They a salad bar that's as long as a car. We had a variety of dishes including the widow maker burger, chicken, chicken pot pie, and beef tips all outstanding. It's in North Mission Viejo and worth the drive.

Since the last sale, Claim Jumper is no longer one of the best restaurants in the area. Everything used to be top grade, now the food is mediocre at best.

I like the happy hour here however this is not one of my top places to go out for dinner. The food is average and nothing really stands out. Service is Ok. The menu does have many things to choose from.

Haven't been to Claim Jumper in years but found the dinner very good left asking ourselves how come we are not regulars. I had ribs and wife had tri-tip, servings were generous and service was attentive. Facility was clean with adequate parking. Now we will return soon.

Service was slow and food was soso. We went early on New Years day and we were seated right away. then waited 15 min. to get water. We remembered that the servings were large so chose to share but the portion wasn't large and the Mash potatoes tasted like glue. We all said we should gave chosen the salad bar.

We had not been to a Claim Jumper restaurant in years. So when we moved into Lake Forest and discovered a Claim Jumper nearby we were happy. So we waited for a special occasion (since it is on the pricey side). We decided that New Years Eve would be that perfect occasion. I made a reservation (I'm glad that I... More

There are very nice restaurants in the area that offer brunch, but this one is a great all-you-can-eat. The staff is excellent. I had an issue with some food that was gone very time I went to grab some. I let the manager know and within minutes the chicken strips with some sides were served at our table. Great value....
