Orange County Mining Co. Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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!
Loved this place. The food was great and plentiful. Tons of desserts and pastries. Can't beat the views.
We got there at 9:45 am and it was perfect because it wasn't too busy yet. I hate kids and children in restaurants. At least the ones that parents let them run around a scream at the top of their lungs which seem to be MOST PARENTS now-a-days. So it was perfect timing because kids started to show up just as we were leaving.
I had reservations for 2 at 8:00pm. When we checked in we were informed they were running about 15 minutes late. We went to the lounge area and waited to be called. We weren’t seated until 8:45. We didn’t receive our food until 9:15. Guests seated 20 minutes after us received theirs first. Upon mentioning this to our waitress she said “sometimes the kitchen mixes up tickets, but they also got rare you ordered medium so that takes longer to cook”. Considering how long we had been from the moment we arrived an apology would have been very nice but none was offered. When we finally received our order both were cooked wrong. And the food wasn’t great. It took us another 40 minutes before we were able to pay and leave. The experience as a whole left much to be desired. It was our first and last time going here, and I would not recommend it to anyone. The wait was more then excessive, the food was not worth the wait or the amount you pay for it. We probably will not be coming back.
I've been to this restaurant so many times over the years; it's always one of my favorites. We celebrated my birthday, and we had wonderful service from Evonna. The soup and salad bar is always an amazing deal -- so many choices, and everything is fresh. For my entree, I had the swordfish, which was a daily special. Delicious.
This was my second time at OC Mining Co. It's a nice place to have some fun and unwind. The food was good was great! Our waitress was super busy but always remembered to check on us. However a couple of people who were there for dinner wasn't very nice. A lady took cutes in front of me at the salad bar line Also a girl poked her hand through the side of the salad bar glass and reach for the spoon I was reaching for and she proceeded to put her sunflower seeds on her salad . What was surprising was they both said "sorry." and smiled and did it anyways ..
First time at the Orange County Mining company, it was great. When you walk in it almost feels like you are walking into a ride at Knott's. The ease of making a reservation online helped out a lot. Sunday nights don't seem too crowded, so even if we did not have a reservation we would have been seated really quickly. The service and food were great! If you get a chance ask for a table by the window so you can enjoy the view, BEAUTIFUL!
Great view, of course. We had a booth looking out the window, which is ideal. Excellent service. Usually, the Disneyland Fireworks can be seen, but they did not go off Saturday night. Emily, our waitress, went on-line to check the conditions to find out for us. She was excellent in general.
A bit of a noisy birthday table right behind us--not bad, really. But we should have noticed and asked for different seats away from the group, and when we came the crowd was thin enough that it could be avoided. In a packed house, I wouldn't even mention it.
The Soup and Salad Bar is excellent. All the main courses come with the Soup and Salad Bar, or you can get just the Soup and Salad Bar. I had the Teriyaki Chicken breast. It was OK. A bit heavy on the sauce, but that can be cleared, and just a bit rubbery. The real problem I have is regret. I should have either gone all-in and ordered a steak (I have had before, and they are good) or just had the Soup and Salad Bar, which would be a fine meal on its own.
My wife ordered a margarita on the rocks and I ordered one blended. Her margarita (ice) was full or bugs/small flies. I reported the issues, asked for manager at the bar and dining area but never saw him/her. I got the impression that maybe they don’t care. Didn’t spoil my evening but made me wonder if they care about guest feedback or guest service.
I will be getting married here this Saturday so this past Sunday we had our rehersal and afterwards 16 of us took part in their brunch. The food was really good there was a large selection of different foods and a huge assortment of deserts. Good experience I'd recommend to anyone.
We love the Mining Company!!!! Consistently delicious, nothing too fancy, which makes it feel special without being pretentious.
Haven’t had a bad meal there in almost 18 years. We dine here about twice per month! The view is spectacular. The drinks are the perfect “weight”.
