“Go There Hungry. Great Food Good Portions”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

My favorites on their menu is Ore Cart or Baby Back Slab. The portions are huge and you can easily split a dish between two people. They also have a great salad bar. For desert order the Motherlode slice of cake if you have room. At least take a look at it in the glass display of the baked goods so you can decide how much you'll eat before dessert.

“Fantastic! For a chain!!”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Yes, this is a chain and a bit on the moderately pricey side but you won't be sorry. The portions are big but that's not the best part! The food I'd actually very tasted here. The staff is friendly and upbeat with just the right number of visits to check on you. The options are endless and the desserts are stupid good! If you wanted to try it but needed a reason, now you have several. I recommend this for business, family, friends, brunch or parties. Good times.

“Huge portions”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Go if you are really hungry. The portions are huge but you can take home and enjoy later. Dessert is for 2 people, the ambiance is great and so is the service

“Great Food Reasonable Prices”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

I have been to Claim Jumper 3 tiome since March. This last visit, I was back twice. The staff is knowledgeable and speedy. I love the Tri Tip and the Rib Eye. As a steakhouse it can't be beat. I always try to make at least one stop at Claim Jumper when I am in town. The food is good and the prices can't be beat for the quality & quantity you receive.

“Try The Saloon During Happy Hour”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

Claim Jumper is a good choice as far as a slightly more expensive chain restaurant. It looks like they have recently been bought out by Landry's but the quality hasn't changed at all. When we go out we rarely take the option to sit in a bar area of a restaurant because the service is usually poor but Claim Jumpers saloon is an exception. We always sit in the saloon, less wait, great service, and happy hour specials which keeps the cost down some. We enjoy most of their offerings, the only downside is that this is one of the only Claim Jumpers in the country without a pizza oven. Beware the portions they serve are humongous.
