Diner Reviews
  • "We always enjoy dining here. We took out-of-town company and they were mighty impressed with the view. Food is always good, with plenty of variety on the salad bar. Kids' menu has great choices. Wine list is suitable (matching the food choices). The fish special sounded good, although I always get steak. No complaints; our waitress and support staff were really nice and attentive."

  • "I love the feel of this place – comfortable dining room with a spectacular view. The OC Mining Company has the best Salad Bar ever, it's a meal in itself. We went for the Prime Rib for two special and the Prime Rib was amazing. The service was great with a friendly wait staff. We definitely will return."

  • "My best friend and I brunch every Sunday. We have a few places in rotation, and when I realized OCMC had a champagne brunch I was sold, because their food is always delicious. We went this Sunday and we left conflicted; the view & the food were great, but it was easily the worst service ever. Champagne brunch should include copious amounts of champagne, but my glass was empty for 45 minutes, because our server was MIA. When i finally complained and asked for a new server, someone came to fill our glasses, but then the same server we complained about took over & resumed ignoring us. Charging $150 for brunch for 4 when we couldn't order drinks or Eggs Benedict (made to order) because our server was ignoring us is unconscionable."

  • "I made an online reservation for 7:30 pm. My party arrived 15 minutes early and was promptly seated in a booth with a great view. Our waitress was attentive, courteous and knowledgeable about the menu. The salad bar was fresh and plentiful. Quite good. I had a bowl of clam chowder and it was bland, thick and seemed more like potato chowder. I ordered prime rib (medium rare). It was tough and lacked flavor. Others in my party ordered mahi mahi and salmon and thought it to be quite good. We all had garlic mashed potatoes and felt it was starchy and lacked garlic flavor. It needed salt. Overall the view was great and service was good. The salad bar was great. The food was hit and miss."

  • "This was a great restaurant, with great food and an incredible view! We would definitely come back again, by ourselves or with a group of people. The service was very good and the food was good too. Everything was pretty perfect except my filet was a little over cooked to medium when I ordered it medium-rare. The salad bar was excellent, with more than enough choices for a great salad. It was very clean and well tended to. We were very happy with everything from this restaurant!"

  • "We really like the Orang mining Co. Great views, great salad bar and the cheese bread is to die for! A little on the pricey side- my 11 yr. son and I ate for 89.00. Unfortunately you cannot see the beautiful view of OC unless you go once the sun has set. In any case we love this local gem and will return again and again. The Soup/salad bar is really terrific."

  • "A drive inland along Chapman Ave brought us two visitors to this worthwhile restaurant. Whereas a salad bar is hard to find nowadays, Orange County Mining Co. perched on a hilltop offers a delicious soup/salad bar that accompanies each and every entree ordered, or is great to have on its own. We enjoyed generous portions and a beautiful sunset view from high above the city of Orange."

We made a 7:30 reservation and got to eat right through the 8:00 sun set. We then went to the patio and hung around for the 9:30 Disneyland fireworks. Overall great experience."

  • "The food for Sunday Brunch was ok. It's brunch, so you get some good items, and some not so great. $28, but if you show up before 10am, you get $5 off, which isn't so bad. But I didn't like that they don't have medium rare for the roast beef. But the view is beautiful. I guess if you put the food and the view together, $23 (before 10am) is a good deal. Ohh, they do have crab legs and shrimps too. But they're kind of small. I probably won't be back. But if I do, it'll be for the view. ;-)"

  • " Service has absolutely horrendous, with the server basically ignoring us the entire evening and at the end totally screwing up our bill (couldn't correctly calculate the bill taking into account a discount coupon we had). When she finally brought us the check she returned a seeming eternity later and took away only the credit card, leaving the bill tab in the leather folder. Still can't figure out what that was about. When I pointed out that that the original bill was virtually impossible to figure out (it had two different totals), she disappeared and had to be hunted down. Server became completely flustered in trying to give us a bill that correctly factored in our discount coupon. Never had a bad experience here before this."

  • "I had the shrimp and scallops of which I got two shrimps and two scallops. My meal was over in less then five minutes. My wife ordered the salmon of which she had to get a side order of mashed potatoes in order to make the meal satisfying. Last time I was here was over ten years ago, and it was great. Things have certainly changed."

  • "The view will not keep people coming if the food is bad. Our group of 5 took over 30 minutes to order due to the limited options on the menu and most of the food was fried. Not many healthy options. The salad bar was Sizzler quality with Cheescake Factory prices. Once we did order we were not impressed by the taste at all. We loved the view but unfortunatly that is not enough to bring us back. Especially when just up the road at Orange Hill I can get the same great view with superior food and ambiance. I look forward to hearing about a change in the menu at Orange County Mining Company."

  • "The food is good. There is plenty off it and it was tasty. They have the best salad bar in OC. We were not rushed. They are concerned about peop[e with disabilities. They give them the assistance needed without it embarrassing the disabled person"

  • "Has changed alot since 2001. Our server wasn't aiming to please. We request sauce on side for ribs, never got them.we order desserts as individual dishes, my cookie came with my husband ice cream. The food is bland, steak had no flavor , halibut was dry . Service at the table lacks, server didn't follow through with requests."

  • "Food was excellent, choices were plentiful,service was exceptional. Did a reservation online, asked if available, could we have window seating as it was our anniversary and we thought the view would be nice. Table was ready on time, choice seating, salad bar was fresh with lots of choices, Includes soup. We had lobster and prime rib, melted in our mouths. Server was attentive and friendly. Restaurant was clean. My only complaint would be in the entry to the restaurant which you had to go down a flight of stairs to access the restaurant. They do have handicap access though if you need it. Other than that we enjoyed it totally."

  • "The Orange County Mining Company brings together a unique location with a great view together with a theme park-like theme for a fun meal experience. We came to celebrate a birthday and got what we wanted. This was not an over-the-top birthday singing place - we are beyond that now. However, it was still special. The soup and salad bar is well stocked, fresh, and has something for everyone. Keeping a cold water bottle on the table at all times is a great touch! The meals were all excellent and we shared a couple of desserts between 4 of us with plenty of food and desserts to take home. Our server was attentive without being pushy. I look forward to returning to try out the brunch sometime!"

  • "Ive been here in the past and have always enjoyed it. However, there used to be live music in the bar. It was nice to eat dinner and then listen to some music and dance. The past 2 times I have been there, the bar was dead, no one in there. In the past, with live music, the bar was always full and people were having a good time. You could make a nite of it. Now, you have to leave after dinner and go elsewhere for entertainment. It would be nice if there was some music for after dinner...."

  • "This place lacks a bit in pride and class. The servers are always nice but tend to not know wines or alcohol in drinks, forget to bring you things and generally don't have a proactive presentation throughout the meal. I always feel a bit like I have to take care of myself here- asking for things over and over and conceding to the fact that my first cup of coffee will be hot, and then they won't keep an eye on it to refill it. I also suspect that most of the pasta and mixed salads on the bar come directly from buckets. I get the sense that the servers are working on a big project in the back that no one else knows about like folding 100 table cloths, WHILE SERVING. The view is impressive and seating is easy so we come here so we'll be back."

  • "Table of 7 to celebrate my daughters 22nd birthday. Prime rib, steaks and the wonderful soup and salad bar made the dining experience grand. Not a lot of traffic on a Tuesday night, at least around 8 when we were seated, but that was nice, the place was quiet and enjoyable. Te service was excellent. The view of the city lights is great too."
