Heated Outdoor Tented Patio - Covid -19 update
Hamburger and salad fans will be thrilled to know that much of what they loved at The Claim Company remains the same. The owners are bringing back the beloved Motherlode Gourmet Hamburger, the build-your-own burger that became a restaurant trend: Choose your bread. Pick your cheese. Select a sauce. Top generously with fried onion strings, sautéed onions and tender mushrooms. Enjoy. Also back is the salad bar, brimming with more than 75 items. The menu will feature a mix of old and new items. The décor, once again, will focus on the romance of the Old West.

Me and my husband went out dining for the first time since the outbreak. We were seated promptly. The server was very sweet and asked if we wanted all our food together or appetizers first to which we choose to get everything together because I’m pregnant and baby decides what she wants first. He gave us plenty of attention as he walked by checking in and the ambiance was great.

Great service and food! Amazing salad bar and best lunch value, burger, fries or their homemade chips with a milkshake for $10.00!

We always love the food at Claim Company, Vernon Hills; the other night was no exception. The bison Motherlode was especially wonderful. The staff has done a great job of making the restaurant as Covid-safe as possible; that is a huge consideration for us. Amanda did an outstanding job as our server. Overall, a great dining experience.

We had a 6:30 reservation for outdoor dining and arrived shortly before. We were told the 'table' had the check but was talking. After 20 minutes we decided to leave - after all we're standing in the restaurant waiting for our patio table, when the manager seated another couple in a room that had no one in it. We asked if we could have a seat there and were accommodated. I know the restaurant can't ask people to leave, but if you accept a reservation and have only 1 table available, it would seem reasonable that you would let the people know when they're seated that there is a time limit?
We also had a waiter who must have had an overload of tables as he would rush into the room and rush us along and would end every conversation with "Cheers". When my hamburger, ordered medium well, came out fairly red, his comment was he'd put it on the grill again (bun and all?) but I should know that medium well means pink in the middle, Cheers. No cheer as I had no knowledge of that and my husband's burger, ordered the same way, was done to perfection. Not the best experience we've had at Claim Company to say the least.

Claim Company has been our go-to restaurant due to their consistently good food & service. It’s continued to be that way, whether for carry out or outside dining, during the pandemic. They’ve done a good job following all guidelines.

We wanted to sit outside and the tables were spaced well. Service and food were excellent. Now that the weather is changing, my only suggestion would be for the restaurant to have heaters available.

We were able to sit outside. The umbrella was positioned 'just so' . Easy to converse with the other couple. Food, as always was very very good. A good way to beat the Covid and have Dinner Out!

Really pleasant dinner on a sidewalk table covered with an umbrella. We both had turkey burgers, followed by Homer's Ice Cream cake.

Love Vernon Hills Claim Company; management is superb, we had a minor problem with a table and it was immediately rectified. Great outdoor dining area--secluded, not in the sun. Superior service, excellent food.
