The food is pricey and subpar. It used to be good back in the day but has definitely gone downhill. I will not be returning.

We were looking for a place for a quick dinner before a show at South Coast Rep and Claim Jumper filled the bill. The food is dependable, and our server Gilbert made sure that we were on time for the show with some time to spare. His service was outstanding.

Our waitress Justine was fun, energetic and always checking in on us.
She made my brothers 60th Birthday a fun time.

We also met the Manager Melissa on our way in and she made us feel like we were at
home.

Thanks again,

While our fish tacos w fries were very very tasty, the portions were somewhat small, odd since this restaurant is known for larger portions.

Good location and parking was good. Open table made reservations very easy and convenient. Forgot the name of my waiter whom was professional, friendly and attentive to us. Since we no longer have a Claim Jumper in Fresno Ca it was nice to find one easily. The food was tasty.

Overeall a 10 but we felt as the waiter was way to fast and felt a little rushed. Service was outstanding and he kept asking if we were ok or if we needed anything which was a great because it's rare when us/as customer have someone check on us more than once.

Great dining experience! We were on vacation so tried to choose different restaurants for variety. The Claims Jumper turned out to be a great choice. Menu had everything anyone would want. Food was delicious & most importantly our server Gil was the best. Very accommodating, fast, efficient, friendly. Next time we’re in the area we will definitely go back to this restaurant

Saturday evening was very busy. Reservations were seated immediately, others were asked to wait. Server was great even though he literally ran from table to table all evening. Tri-tip entree was tender and delicious. Shrimp and pasta entree was too oily with plenty of residual oil left in the bowl, not that great. Chicken fried steak and gravy was generous but second piece of steak was thin, hard and mostly inedible. Complimentary slice of Motherlode cake provided due to birthday in August. Claim Jumper has dropped out of Landry’s select club so don’t expect to earn or redeem points although they did give us a 10% discount. Will not be back because they dropped out of Landry’s. Mediocre chain food available in other places.

We had a lovely Father's Day lunch. Our server, Kim, was patient towards our group of 10. She stayed on top of clearing our used plates and refilling our drinks without us asking. We always like the airiness and space of the restaurant.

The food is very good. However, just like so many of the other restaurants, the noise level is very high. Everyone's talking which is as it should be but then the music is turned up louder as if the conversations and the music are competing. I feel the music should be in the background just for ambiance.

We went here for dinner before the theater. Seems more like a place for larger groups and families. Healthy food choices were very limited. Good service and nice decor.

The food was ok and I was expecting something much better based upon the reviews. I order Salmon which was VERY DRY, the vegetables were bland and my baked potato was hard. Probably won't be back.

I made reservation last minute for mothers day. I ordered a steak medium cooked it came out well done..I know it was a busy day but it's not an excuse to ruin somebody else's dining experience. We waited for our food for a long time when we finally got it my steak is well done. They said they will re fire and told me they will take it off the check. I dont want it removed I just want a decent dinner with my family. They re-fire and still took a long time to get to my table.. By the time it geta to my table I already asked for the check. I do t feel like eating anymore. They offer to box it for me so I took it home

This was a celebration and a mini meeting. Patty, our server, was wonderful. She was patient with us, yet got our drink and food order in fast and efficiently. She even had the music turned down in our area without us having to ask. Thanks for a great experience.

There were 5 of us and everyone’s dish was good but I GOT THE 3 sliders and there was absolutely nothing between the bun but the meat. The hamburger was plain, I took the cheese off which is what I’d asked for no tomato catsup lettuce, nothing the chicken was delicious so I dipped it in my salad dressing for flavor
The pork did have a tad of BBQ sauce. But all in all everyone was happy and we had the most wonderful waitress. And I would go back, just no sliders?
