Orange County Mining Co. needs some updating The carpet is very old and dirty. The attitude of the food server needs training. The presentation of the food on plate needs improvement. The food was very good with large portions.
Too dark inside. Put us in a tight booth, but moved to table near window when we asked. I got the baby back ribs and was not impressed; overcooked , (almost burned flavor on outside.) Asked for butter for mashed potatoes and received one pat for our whole table ( we all got mashed) Cheesy bread was tasty but half of the pieces in basket had the cheese off because it was stuck to the napkin. Salad bar was good, clam chowder soup was watery.
The sunset view is spectacular! The cocktails were delicious and we are not drinkers. Salad & Soup bar has a lot of options to choose from. The main course menu doesn't have a lot to choose from but what they do have they do great. They could have some veggies as a side instead of just garlic mash potatoes or rice.
The food was just ok. Our glassware and utensils were dirty. The place is overpriced for the quality. Its just dirty and needs a real good cleaning from top to bottom. Our hostess was a ditz with wrong assumptions which is annoying. I wouldn't have mind paying for valet if the food was at least good enough. Nothing extra was done for our birthday girls either. Not even a Happy Birthday!
First time here...amazing view, amazing customer service, good food...i got the sword fish and I was very pleased.. My date got a steak and I gotta say..that steak was fucke n bomb!!!
It was very very good. Awesome food and view.
Blackened Salmon was to die for...not over or undercooked...soft , moist with pink texture. Just about best I EVER had..Ditto for the Mr. of our out of state couple we’re we’re out with. Ladies had the Shrimp&Scallops dish.
i love saving this location for special occasions. The view is wonderful, the food is tasty and it's a friendly place to go. Lucky for us it's not far to drive!
Great views and service! Food was very good.
It was my girlfriend’s birthday we had an outstanding time
Food was delicious- love the salad bar-service was very attentive and timely.
The foid was very good but took a little too long. Good thing they have an open soup and salad bar with entrees
Our server Jason B. was on top of everything.
Salad bar is great.
Staff is very helpful and courteous.
It was our 27th anniversary, a great dinner. A great place anytime.
Ordered the shrimp scampi and got 6 LITTLE shrimp! Disappointed considering the cost!
We went for a team dinner for work...great food, great atmosphere, great service, and amazing view. We all said we would go back!
PROS --- Beautiful view! Our Server was excellent!
CONS --- We went for Sunday brunch. The food was just okay. Good selection, but not very good quality. The restaurant was dirty with food all over the floor and they really need to steam clean or replace their carpet.
We've been to OC Mining Company many times but never for the Sunday Brunch. The view is great, the service was very good, but the food was not good at all. I had my two kids with me (16 and 18) and they pretty much eat anything, but even they mentioned (unsolicited by me) the poor food quality - from fruit that did not seem fresh, to pastries that were still frozen, to runny scrambled eggs. We tried to like it, but it was not very enjoyable at all.
Parking are limited due to an event so we were forced to have a Valet Parking that cost each of us an additional $5. Receptionists and staff personnel are friendly and accommodating but it took us almost 30 mins late as scheduled before we got seated. It was great having an unlimited salad bar & soup station and complimentary bread (included in menu) but the servings for the appetizers (calamari & spinach artichoke dip w/ chips) that we ordered were quite small.
Understandably, it was a busy Saturday and there was a Wedding event but our dinner was served almost 45 mins after we ordered. And Unfortunately, 3 of us who ordered the 14 oz Angus Rib-eye Steak were not happy because it was prepared well-done instead of Medium Well...the steaks had burned tops and sides but I personally managed to finish 90% of it but my two other friends did not. Even the cut of my stead was not I'm expecting compared to the other 2. However, Andy our server was really nice all throughout the dinner that he did not charge us with the appetizer due to the concern we had...Also, we did not mention to him anymore that one of our friend who ordered the Salmon had an itchy pallet as well as the edges of his lip and did not finish his fish as well...I'm a Culinarian and a member of the American Culinary Federation so I know exactly what was served. Hopefully we don't experience the same concern if we decide to give this place another chance in our future celebrations.
The service was extremely slow. The pitcher of margaritas was filled to the brim with ice and watered down. The food was just ok, I expected a lot better for the exorbitant prices. Only positive is that the view was nice.
The view is the best part. Food is ok. Service tried hard but a few misses. Worth the visit for the novelty.
This place is one of our favs and my wife mostly orders the swordfish which is the best in the county. However this night they over cooked it. And they replaced it with another piece that was over cooked & of course very dry. About 90 seconds to 2 minutes too long on the grill. We opted for it to be removed from our bill. The waitress asked the manager in charge to speak with us but was apparently too busy. My scallops & shrimp was FANTASTIC & I have a new favorite dish at OC Mining Co.
Salad bar is always over the top!
My first time going to the moning company. I really enjoyed the excellent customer service and the views of the restaurant. The food was good, enjoyed salad and soup bar also .
OC Mining Company is always a great choice. Food is great, I like the soup and salad bar. Service is great.
They are also a great choice for larger groups.
Awesome food, great view. Love the salad bar but where’s the onions! :)
One of the best Sunday champagne brunches in Orange County.
We got there five minutes before our reservation. I told the person at the front desk that we had a reservation and gave her my name. We get seated and find out about the salad bar. We eat and as we are leaving I noticed an email from open table saying about not showing up for our reservation. I spoke to the guy who is now at the front desk and he said that’s the first time that’s happened.
The food was great, but it is now a little pricey with the Prime Rib at $33, and Halibut was $40. You do get generous portions and all you can eat salad bar.
Good solid steakhouse & salad bar fare. Nice view. Comfortably old school, predictable & reliable.
We waited a bit for our table but once we were seated everything else was fast and smooth. Food was delicious.
The food was absolutely delicious. The server was very friendly and attentive. We love coming here for the view, salad bar and the menu.
Very disappointing. Went there for Sunday brunch. The first impression was an old, rundown restaurant. I get that it’s supposed to be a mine, but it's no reason for how unclean and worn out it was. I wanted a Bloody Mary but their only option was a $13 drink which included shrimp and bacon. I didn’t want the meat but was told the price would be the same.
I went to the omelet/pasta bar first. There was a good selection of items to choose from, but the cleanliness was definitely lacking. When the chef went to get a pan for my omelet he got a dirty pan from underneath the counter (I had seen him put other dirty pans there so I know it was not clean). He looked at it and grabbed a dirty towel off the counter and wiped it out. When my husband went to get an order of pasta the chef wasn’t really listening to him and put the wrong sauce on it. When he pointed it out the chef gave him another one that had the correct sauce, but when my husband began to eat he realized it was someone else’s with the wrong ingredients. The buffet was okay, but the food did not look very fresh and again it was not clean around the food. We tried the crab legs, which were small, and several had no meat. The salad bar was nice as was the dessert bar when we first got there. Towards the end of our meal we went to get dessert and found that about half the desserts were gone and it looked like they were closing it down, 45 minutes before the brunch ended.
Most annoying was a nearby table with a group of eight adults who had obviously had too much champagne. They were extremely loud and vulgar, yet the staff said nothing and continued serving them champagne. At one point the server was at their table watching something on one of their phones while the group was carrying on loudly and using offensive (f-word) language. No one from the staff took any action to control the situation.
We won't be back nor will we recommend it to anyone we know.
Overall a nice experience. Some of the food trays took longer than others to be refilled during their busy noon-time rush, would likely go later next time. Prime rib overcooked for our taste. Snow crab plentiful, as was/were lox and the ribs. Omelette station good options. Would be nice if they included coffee/tea in the price. Juice and champagne included.
Delicious food! Options for all meat and seafood were amazing, and the salad/soup bar was great. We had a small issue with our reservation and didn’t get called initially, but once we talked to the host station we were seated right away. Our waitress was great, and the view from our table is one that couldn’t be beat!
I brought my boyfriend for his birthday and it was pretty awesome! He had never been and thought it was really neat and he loved his meal. The sunset and view were amazing!!
Took my wife for birthday dinner, we waited 15 mins for our table when we were on time,
Our server never showed up so the girl filling in had to take care of us, wasn’t sure if she was really happy about it.
I had a glass of wine to chill out then they say a huge loud group of people above us, they were so loud we couldn’t even hear each other talk, kind of ruined the evening for me.
Always have been a fan of OC mining since kids were little it’s been the special occasion go to spot.
Just a bad timing night and we will still go back again.
Great food & service as usual. My wife & I go here about four times year for special occasions & the welcoming staff, servers, & the food are the best around (this includes Orange & LA counties).
I ordered the sautéed salmon, it came out undercooked. The service was very slow had to wait too long for our waitress to come to the table to send my salmon back to be recooked and the drink refills were very slow. Overall a bad experience and bad service.
The food choices was not great! I have had better food there in the past. I had reservations and still had to wait 20 minutes to be seated.
My girls and I had a blast! The food was great, the service was amazing and the view was simple beautiful!!! We didnt even want to leave! Dont pass on this place! Everyone just try this place out ASAP, you wont be disappointed at all! You are gonna love it!
