It has been quite a while since I was here last and it may be my imagination but the prices have really increased. Much to high for the type of restaurant. I did happen to see one item on the menu that was a real bargain. The sliders. You get 4 and ou can mix and match with beef, pork... More

The restaurant was crowded when we arrived. We were told it would be a 20 minute wait and we were given a pager. After a half-hour, we went to the desk and asked how come the wait was longer--it was discovered that they had given us a broken pager and we were seated immediately. I ordered the chicken fried chicken... More

We used to go here all the time, but the quality and serving sizes disappointed. Well, I can tell you that they have vastly improved! The ribs are meaty again, and the sides very tasty. We were given complimentary cheese bread which is freshly baked and delicious. We asked for butter which makes it even better. They have a superb... More

I moved away from all the Claim Jumpers and was so excited to see this one around my hotel. Great service as always and enough food to feed an army. Spinach and artichoke dip is still the best.

While visiting Orange County, we decided to visit this restaurant. We moved from the area over 20 years ago but always remembered how good this place was. We were not disappointed! The salad bar was as great as ever. The menu had great choices and of course, the desserts were fabulous!

My daughter chose Claim Jumper for her birthday lunch this afternoon. Great choice..!! We arrived after the main lunch crowd had left so we were seated immediately. Courtney was our server and made us feel like long-lost family. Great service without constantly "hovering" over us. The various choices of lunch were all well-prepared with hot items hot and cooler items... More

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...
