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.

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!

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.
