We were a group of five on New Years Day. They have a very large buffet available, which had just about every conceivable choice. Yet one of our group was picky and demanding (bacon not crispy enough, please make mine special; pizza not cheesy enough, please make me a special one) -- which to my amazement they did, and with...

I miss the old days when it was owned by a family instead of a conglomerate. The food was better and just the feel was different. Now saying that you still get the same size Claim Jumper portion sizes that you use to get. The food menu is vast and will take you 10 minutes just to look through it.... More

Nice Claim Jumper. Food is always consistent and quantities are huge. A good place for families. I love the Soup and Salad Bar. My husband is a carnivore and is always happy too. Grandkids love to join is😉.

We actually started at the Black Angus just down the street but couldn't get seated even though the place was empty. We walked down the street and came here. We were seated right away and had a fantastic meal. Obviously much better management then the Black Angus. Our server was friendly and efficient and we loved our meals. I had... More

We miss the old Claim Jumper when it was still family owned. The quality of food and the portions were much bigger. They also used to offer prime rib on their menu. Once it went corporate, sadly, that went out the window. Ah the good old days! So we visited for dinner tonight and it was moderately busy for a... More

It has been quite a while since I was here last and it may be my imagination but the prices have really increased. Much to high for the type of restaurant. I did happen to see one item on the menu that was a real bargain. The sliders. You get 4 and ou can mix and match with beef, pork... More

The restaurant was crowded when we arrived. We were told it would be a 20 minute wait and we were given a pager. After a half-hour, we went to the desk and asked how come the wait was longer--it was discovered that they had given us a broken pager and we were seated immediately. I ordered the chicken fried chicken... More

We used to go here all the time, but the quality and serving sizes disappointed. Well, I can tell you that they have vastly improved! The ribs are meaty again, and the sides very tasty. We were given complimentary cheese bread which is freshly baked and delicious. We asked for butter which makes it even better. They have a superb... More

I moved away from all the Claim Jumpers and was so excited to see this one around my hotel. Great service as always and enough food to feed an army. Spinach and artichoke dip is still the best.
