Food is always great. Salad bar is incredible. We ordered the prime rib special for 2 Monday through Thursday. It was delicious. But was disappointed when plate showed up w no veggies. Felt a little bait and switched. Picture advertisement obviously had mashed potatoes and a good portion of veggies. After pointing that out to our waitress, she said with certainly meal doesn’t come w veggies.

Salad bar had veggie options, but my kid didn’t seek those ones out.

Thanks.

The server was amazing, the waitress was not only professional but also very considerate with our situation. We live in Arizona and were in California for our family vacation and I can wait to visit again.

This evening we celebrated a friend's birthday at this restaurant - one of our favorites. Our experience was as anticipated very satisfactory. The menu primarily of beef and seafood is our favorite... service excellent and the view outstanding. The meal was prepared to order and we left very satisfied.

When we got there the service in the bar took us about 30 minutes to get noticed and then when we were at our table in the restaurant the table next to us was celebrating her birthday and they were really loud and letting the kids run around so it was OK

The steak and prime rib we had was excellent, the only draw back is if you want any sides other than the salad and bread they offer it is extra, what happen to the days a baked potato etc. was included?

It's been a long time since we've been to the Orange County Mining Co. When we got to the restaurant our table wasn't ready yet so we went to the bar and ordered a drink. By the time our drinks came, our table was ready. I asked if we came for happy hour if we could sit outside the bar area and the answer was yes. Yea! We will be back for happy hour soon. Our dinner was very good and our server was excellent.

Although I enjoyed the view and the company I was with, my food came out lukewarm after a long wait. The table next to us, also a larger party was served first even though they were seated after us. My husband had mixed grill and did not like that the ribs had different sauces. When bringing out the meals, the runner was not trained on what each meal was and gave the wrong plate to the wrong person. We had to have our water replaced after seeing a straw in a refill bottle on the table. The service was average. If I am going to spend $100 for 2 meals, I expect the service to be above average. Everyone enjoyed the soup and salad bar.

Food was good. Service was ok. The only complaint was we were a party of 6 and needed two high chairs. We had to split the party because the booths didn't allow for two high chairs. We asked if we could have one of the tables that could accommodate us but was told that it was for large party's. I went to look and there was a table for 6 that could accommodate our party with high chairs. Not a big complaint but I wanted all of us to sit together.

We came to celebrate my mom's birthday. She's doesn't do well eating in louds place so our 9:30am reservation was perfect. We were the few first to arrive and had to extra perks to be the first to grab all the delicious food. We also received $5 off each adult which was amazing. So much food!

Was not a good experience this time. We were seated next to a large party who were so loud that we could not even have a conversation. Others around us either asked to move or incoming customers refused to sit around there. When we decided that we should probably move, it was too late as our food had already arrived.

We've been here a few times and always love it, but this time- the salad bar was lacking items and the soup choices were all bland without flavor. The grilled chicken breast also was not that good. We will return but hopefully it is better next time.

We were celebrating two birthdays and were shown a perfect table for the 6 of us with an amazing view. Honestly there is not a table there without and amazing view. The food was wonderful! Perfectly prepared steaks for most of us and the salad bar is off the charts! Wish they had spinach but that is the only thing missing. We cant wait to come back

We were celebrating our one-year anniversary, having gotten married at the OC Mining Company the year before. We had the usual fine service, delicious food and great view. I had the salmon, which was moist and tender. The soup and salad bar is always excellent, and the cheese bread is the best.

The main courses were very good but the sides were just ok. The cheese bread was good. The salad bar was great, fresh and lots of options. Lots of different pasta salads, too. Overall it was a very good dinner.
