Worst dining experience ever. We dined at the Claim Jumper for lunch on 3/19/2013 and were ignored at the front desk while servers stood around and chatted. After several minutes a server from the other side of the restaurant walked by

I went to Claim Jumper tonight to celebrate my birthday (March). I hadn't been since Thanksgiving. The food was as great as it always has been. What got to me was the new decor! They have removed all the antiques and mining gear and hunting trophies. There is one antler chandelier left, but I imagine that will be gone soon. Instead there are huge "modern" fabric light shades. The walls are adorned with semi abstract paintings of miners. Each one is done in exactly the same style and color palette. I commented on the paintings being all the same, the hostess pointed out that each one was different... yeah, I get that, they are different but yet so much the same that they blend into a total mass. I am an artist, painter and professional designer. I was not impressed. I love the food and I guess I will go back for that, but the new decor just makes me sad.... I loved the feeling of the old decor, especially in the bar area.

We have been there many times: Food: comes out from the kitchen right away and very tasty with generous portions. I had lamb shank - all I can say is WOW! it was so good, and my wife had a salad and it was excellent! Service: Very Good, very polite and helpful, if you ask for something - you get it right away. Decor: Very clean and nice with the theme of an old gold mine area. Parking: Plenty of parking. Get there a bit early or you may end up waiting 30 or more minutes! Waiting Area: clean and nice, with a view of their very good desserts in a cooler by the cashier person. Restrooms: Always clean. FOR A CHAIN RESTAURANT, THIS PLACE IS HARD TO BEAT, VERY GOOD FOOD AND SERVICE AT A VERY REASONABLE PRICE.

I love this place....Well mainly the Bar. The atmosphere is great in the bar. You can have a meeting, enjoy a appetizer or just sit back and have the Best Long Island Iced Tea in the World.
I have been spoiled by them in regards to their Long Islands
I won't order one from anywhere else and can say I don't really even like them....but they do something special to make theirs taste GREAT!!!!
I have a few meetings there and always like to choose the bar area the service is great and there is a indoor outdoor area that is very spacious and can accommodate many people.
The restaurant is great too and we usually split everything there including the dinner salad. A Lot of food. Oh and the desserts are to die for!!!! Split those too.
Pros: Great Bar
Cons: Some wait time

This is a family favorite. Although we now split meals because there is so much food, we love the calzone on the menu. Josh loves the selection for kids, and all of the desserts are to die for. I always try to make it here at least one time a month as the service and food are great!

Claim Jumper definitely has one of the longest waits to be seated in the surrounding area. On a weekend you can easily wait one to two hours for a table during peak times. The food is really inconsistant, some things seem quite bland while others seem to be just right. One thing for sure, the portions are LARGE. However, even judging by the amount of food I get everytime I go there, I always feel like I paid too much for the meal considering the quality of food. There are definitely other places where you can get better quality for your dollar. On the other hand, the Jumper's salad bar is always fresh, the menu has plenty of variety in types of cuisine, the service is normally attentive and the atmostphere is fitting to those looking for a family style restaurant. They have monster desserts that will impress most people, as if you weren't already full from the huge entree. They have a bar where they serve half-price appetizers and discount drinks during happy hour. Fair warning though, the portions (half-price appetizers) are pretty much just as halved as the price. You won't come away feeling like you saved any money by hitting them up at happy hour. There is a lengthy drink menu of current favs, and most of the time the bartenders are on top of their game. Overall I would still give Claim Jumper a 6.5 for service, amount of food, and atmosphere. Everytime you go you'll come away feeling full, but perhaps still a bit unsatisfied, especially if you've braved a two hour wait.

Cons: Long wait times during peak hours, Food is Average to slightly above average.

I have never had a bad meal at any Claim Jumper. This one is no exception. The portions are unbelievable and the food is scrumptious. The fried chicken breast with potatoes, biscuits and gravy is to die for. The huge BBQ combo I split with my husband was heavenly. BBQ so good that you are gnawing the bones (sorry for the bad picture, but some will know what I mean).

There is a wait, but it is well worth it. Go into the bar and have a beer from one of the largest lists I've ever seen.

Get dessert even if you are bursting. They have to be seen to be beleived. Share it with the whole table. Trust me.

After graduations every restauarnt is booked with huge parties and you have to wait hours to get a table. With a large party of 11 I thought it would be hours before we would get seated. Yet Claim Jumper allows you to call ahead and put your name in, so when you get there you can be seated. I love this apsect of their restaurant since I am an inpatient person. It amazed me we walked in and had a private table in the back. The manager was accomedating and we had a great server as well who brought out the kids meal for a fidgeting baby. Wonderful service and always great food.

There's huge portions and everything is delicious. The service is amazing. At times, it can be crowded, but its worth it to wait. Come during lunch since there are lunch specials with big portions+a little lower prices.

I like to eat in the bar area and order off their menu. The regular menu dishes are way too much food for me but, in the bar your can order a few appetizers or individual pizza and it's plenty for me. This place is CLEAN...I have seen management come around with white gloves on and wipe the furnishings checking for dust. If you are there near closing you will see the employees wiping down all the bar stools, legs and all.

PROS: Clean, Variety, Value
CONS: noisy

If you want a great meal at a great price, then Claim Jumper is the place to be. They have great chicken or beef dishes, with their ribs and rotisierre chicken at the top of the list. Their burgers are also an excellent value. If you want a great drink, then go no further as their bar has every drink you can think of. Their special Mai Tai's are out of this world. You can order off the menu in the bar and that could be a real time saver if you happen to want to go there on the weekend.

This is a great restaurant for big parties and groups. The atmosphere is loud and there is always a long wait on the weekends. It's one of the most crowded places around. The menu has a ton of items to choose from - salads, sandwiches, soups, hamburgers...and more. The place has awesome desserts. I highly recommend just going for dessert and having the chocolate chip calzones - these are amazing!

Claim Jumpers had me feeling as if I was eating with the Indians. After a 1 hour stake out of hunting buffalo, we all came back to the village and had inhuman sized portions. The only difference.. The meat on my plate wasnt Buffalo and I wasnt in a village. The ribs were so juicy and tender I felt as if I was eating "Eve's Rib". The mash potatos tasted as if Picasso gave up painting and took up the culinary arts. The chicken was so mouth watering "I myself laid an egg". Good food, good service. Thats the american way. My lovely woman bought me dinner so I didnt have to fit the bill. Which made the meal just a little extra tender. If you know what I mean! ::nudge nudge:: Only complaint was the booze was rather weak. Hi-C is a more intoxicating.

I like going to this Claim Jumpers because the food is given in big portions. You pay what you get for! The only thing is that when there is await--there is await!!! You want to get there early to avoid the long lines, but once you are there you will enjoy the food.

and a large appetite try this place. The amount of food this place serves can feed me through several meals and I don't consider myself a light eater. The Clam Chowder in a bread bowl is a favorite, and if you want ribs you will get plenty.

My only complaing is the crowds. The restaurant does not take reservations and there is always a long wait. We used to come at night for an office celebration and we would send someone one hour ahead of time to put our name in.

You will not leave this restaurant hungry! I love the atmosphere, you feel like you've stepped back in time. Be sure to get here early, it gets kinda crowded most nights. I had the Miners Combo, theres no way you can finish the whole thing. I've been there four times and never made it to dessert.

All portions are generous in size and above average in quality, a great place to take friends and visitors for those special events.
