The food was ok but the service was horrible. Waitress forgot our water and cutlery and brought our wine late. We had to ask another server to bring the water. Food finally came and she brought the bill before we even finished eating. When we spoke to the manager about her, he said she was a good waitress. We weren’t expecting a discount but were disappointed in his lack of concern. I would t recommend it.

To get to the restaurant go have to walk the streets of downtown Sacramento which does not the have cleanest city streets. The inside of the restaurant is dark and needs some upgrades especially the carpet. The service was ok and we probably will not go back to eat there again.

My brother and his wife were visiting from Tennessee and I decided to take them out to dinner at Claim Jumper because my wife and I have always enjoyed anytime we have dined there. They enjoyed themselves.

My husband and I stopped in for a quick bite before going to see Cirque de Soliel at Ralely Field. We loved the location and relaxed feel of this place. Waiter was prompt, got our drink and food orders within 10 to 15 minutes. Parking garage across the street, so very convenient location for downtown events.

I've eaten at claim jumper before (not this one) and it was great. Service was slow and they were not busy maybe 10 tables in the entire restaurant had patrons. Plates with appetizers were all dirty with food stuck on them. Entrees were cold. Flavors were ok and probably would have been more enjoyable had the food not been cold. Don't think I would recommend this facility to anyone.

The issue was the quality of the food.
My wife ordered the Salmon medium but it came out well and dry. The waitress had the manager comp that.
I had the ribs and I ate it all but was well done and dry as well. I didn’t complain about the ribs but thought this is a good opportunity to mention

This was my first visit to this location, and to my estimation this was just average. Our waiter worked very hard and no complaints, however the salads came almost on top of the appetizer ( do not bother with the bacon appetizer, the calamari was perfect, but the spinach dip was all bread bowl and no dip) and even though I advised we had time, entrée came before we could finish salad. everyone seemed to enjoy their food, however in two instances the salmon was dry, ( while I thought the crab topping was very good, one of our diners scraped it off as being to spicy). The steak appeared to be perfect, as did the various shrimp plates.
Overall it was a nice family dinner prior to a theater visit, but nothing to make it stand out or warrant a special trip to return.

The service was super slow. It was not busy, they must’ve underhired. It was super loud. The people next to us yelled at the manager. The food was fine, but not amazing. There were 4 of us, we spent $200. I won’t be back.

This place has went down hill. They ran out of featured items a weekend night - even though the restaurant was not even busy. Salad bar was empty of most items. Food was served cold. Use to love this place not any more.

Despite a scheduled time, my guest and I were not greeted by the hostess for several minutes even though it was a slow Monday lunch hour.
Once we were seated it took over 5 minutes to have a waiter to take our order. The waiter was friendly but didn't serve the cheesy bread stating it was in the oven. We immediately placed the order for concern it would be a long time before our order was placed. We ordered buffalo chicken wrap and sliders from the half sheet lunch menu with limited selection. It took over 20+ minutes to be served and the complimentary bread was still not ready. We had to eat quickly due to the delays to return work on time. The fastest service was when it came to paying. Big disappointment since this site is no longer participating in the Landry's Select Club which I am a member for 5 years. This is generally my go to restaurant for work functions and it has been progressively declining in service. Fortunately the food made up for the poor reception and service.

I ordered chicken alfredo from the childs menu and there was no chicken in it. I called the restaurant and informed about it and was told to bring it back. I was going to next day but I couldn't because now I am facing rush hour and gas is too expensive to go back and then return home with her replaced dished. This is the first time I ever had a problem with a meal. If my grandaughter would have ate it I probably would have caught it then but she got full on bread and milk and didn't touch it. it was just plain spaghetti with the alfredo sauce. I was told it was supposed to be shredded chicken nope not one piece.
I appreciate the suggestion to fix the problem but I can't just be riding back in forth unless I was in the area.

Our reservation was for 9:30 pm but when we got there just after 9 pm we were seated as it was pretty empty. We sat for about 15-20 minutes before anyone bothered to come to the table. We ordered all of our food and drinks at once and within a few minutes got drinks, appetizers, and salads all at once. Five minutes later approximately our entrees arrived as the kitchen was not busy. So, we had all our food on the table at once, there was no meal pacing at all. We only had a chance to have a couple of bites of salad before the rest of the food came. Our server was several different people and I never really knew who would be serving us at any given time. The last server we had was nice and very attentive, which was really nice given how the meal started. It was an anniversary dinner for my husband and me and I have to admit, it did not feel like a special meal at all. I do not think we will be going back for some time.

I have visited Claim Jumper in the past and have had a pleasant experience. It is very close to my job, walking distance so the location is very convenient.

I had a reservation through Open Table, I was greeted and seated quickly. We were seated at a 6 person booth, so we had a lot of room. The booth has fabric on it, it could use some cleaning. Nothing so atrocious, but it definitely could use a cleaning.

The service was just OK. The server was welcoming, we were served water and our place setting. The interval between our greeting by the server, taking our order and serving our order could definitely be shorter. We went during lunch time, but it was not crowded, so I expected my meal to be served sooner.

The meal. I ordered the Tri Tip special with vegetables, minus the mashed potatoes. The Tri Tip was salty. It was cooked medium well and served luke warm. The vegetables were sliced butternut squash with slivers of onion. The butternut squash was overcooked and a bit 'mushy'. The bread that accompanies the meal or table, was served warm.

I had finished my ice tea, I had to ask at the end of the meal for a refill because the server did not return until the bill arrived.

The ambiance, the lighting was good, the temperature inside was fine, and the music was old school rock. The patrons appeared to be mostly middle aged workers.

I would attend this establishment in a group during lunch time because of its location and ambiance. It does offer a variety of American style foods which offers the group different options. I will not attend this restaurant as date night or happy hour.

We utilize the online table reservation option. When we arrived, we were seated right away. Customer service was great, husband had fish, which he really enjoyed. I had the shrimp over rice, loaded potatoes & baked beans. I really liked the beans... Overall, the presentation was great too.

Met an old friend for dinner. The menu was extensive, the service was excellent. I had the southwestern chicken salad which was good. My friend had the wedge salad that make me a little jealous. We had pretzels and spinach dip for appetizers. I would definitely recommend you give the Claim Jumper a try!
