Orange County Mining Co.
Mothers Day BrunchThe selection was wonderful, and the staff were great. You can't beat the view, and always have a good time.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMUpscale Dining For AllThe food was very tasty, the kind that "normal" people enjoy. I would call it meat and potatoes food or country food. The restaurant has a nice scenic view atop a big hill looking down. The best views are probably at sunset and at night. The interior is very interesting. It has an old mine look and slightly country feel. Drinks are served in glass jars. The prices are a little more expensive than a Chili's type restaurant but still reasonable. This a great place for special occasions. I took my mother there for Mother's Day and she loved it. It would be great place to bring a date. They do have a banquet area for wedding receptions and parties.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe View!, the meal, the service -Great place, great quality decent price. I will definitely go back soon5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMrevgenerally an over amazing place beautiful dinning area will come back sometime in the near future.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat AmbienceFood as always is consistantly good. The view if you can get a window seat is fabulous. Either before or after your meal hang out in the bar area with a nice comfortable feeling and again a great view if you sit outside on the balcony area.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMid Week AnniversaryThis place has an amazing view of orange county, a great salad bar, and delicious food. All without suffocating your wallet. I went here with my girlfriend and it was a great spot. I highly recommend this place for anyone who hasn't been here already and if you have then you don't need me to tell you.

It's one of my favorite restaurants in orange country.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best views in OrangeOne of the best views in Orange County. This is a classic, rustic steak house with a salad bar. Everyone is extremely friendly. Service is very good but not great. The food is quality is great.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMLook out for the valet parking.There is no mention of the manditory valet parking. There is minimal self parking. The valets will not let you self park your own vehicle.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, we enjoyed ourAs always, we enjoyed our visit. The food was great and the surroundings were enjoyable.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view, Great food and drinks!Beautiful view - better than most 5-star restaurants in my opinion - and close to home without exorbitant prices like other restaurants with this sort of set-up would have. The wait staff is very helpful and courteous, they are there when you need but don't hover. I love the seafood since I'm not much of a steak-eater, but my date and friends have all enjoyed theirs! I did try the ribs which were perfectly cooked, and not too fatty or saucy, but I have to go with the shrimp scampi/scallop combo, the sauce with their mashed potatoes is DELICIOUS! Actually, everything we've tried has been amazing!
I'm also a huge fan of their Miner's Margaritas and their happy hour - they have several unique cocktails that change it up from typical spots!4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite salad bar, andOur favorite salad bar, and the service is always spot on!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Late Night AmbianceVisited on a late Tuesday evening and enjoyed how quiet and romantic the ambiance was. I know if I visit during the week the feeling is much quieter and peaceful compared to the weekend. Now that the sun is going down later and later, I find the late night visit really shows off the view. Great meal as always.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a very good experience,We had a very good experience, except for the baby next to us. A place like this is not for babys or small children. People with small children & babies should either get a babysitter or go where their noise will not bother the other patrons. Most people who are there don't want to put up with their noise, exspecially when your spending that much money. It ruins the dining experience. I learned from experience; you don't take small children or babies to high-end dining places. You need to think about the others that may be there.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMService was outstanding.
