Excellent food, large menu, lots of food.

Our family went there for my birthday. The steak was cooked perfectly and the fish and chips were great. One meal, the lobster, was lacking flavor and the restaurant replaced the meal with another choice, no problem. We will definitely go back as this is one of the best restaurants in Santa Ana.

Another old staple that has gone downhill. While the menu selection is great and so is the service, the food is just not the same as it used to be. In the past I couldn't wait to get the baby back ribs, but this time they were just OK. I ordered the half rack of ribs and shrimp plate. I... More

When I lived in southern CA in the 80's, the Claim Jumper was my favorite restaurant. Great food, great selection, great value. While visiting recently I discussed that you can't go home again.....While this location has retained the Produce Bar (some have not), which we always love, it has changed, most notably eliminating the crab/pasta salad, which was my favorite...

We used to go to Claim Jumper in years past. We went for the first time in a couple of years. I used to always get the Chicken Fried Steak and you got so much that it was always good for a to-go box so it was really like 2 meals. This trip the portion was "regular" size so no... More

Good Food and Great Service. We had a mini class reunion on Sunday and a girls lunch on Monday. They went far and beyond to accommodate us.

Old cowboy atmosphere which is suggest updating, but did makes up for the lack of modern decor. I had the tritip for lunch with a baked potato, and everything was done perfect!

My wife and I have enjoyed numerous good meals here. Basic beef with enhancements and sides are their specialties. Service is usually quick and very user and group friendly!

Claim Jumper is one of our favorites when visiting California. I like the salad bar but the menu has so many options there is something for everyone. The kids menu has several good choices.

Not the same Claim Jumper that I used to remember. I only went because I was given a gift card last Christmas. Food used to be so good here and now it is just average. Can't say I would ever get excited to go go Claim Jumper anymore.
