We actually started at the Black Angus just down the street but couldn't get seated even though the place was empty. We walked down the street and came here. We were seated right away and had a fantastic meal. Obviously much better management then the Black Angus. Our server was friendly and efficient and we loved our meals. I had... More

We miss the old Claim Jumper when it was still family owned. The quality of food and the portions were much bigger. They also used to offer prime rib on their menu. Once it went corporate, sadly, that went out the window. Ah the good old days! So we visited for dinner tonight and it was moderately busy for a... More

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
