Who doesn’t love that dinosaur sized chocolate cake, The Mother Lode?
I LOVE the large portions of food!! My left overs are enough for the next two meals at home/work! The portobello sandwich was juicy and delish. The veggie burger really tasted meaty. I actually thought they made a mistake and gave me some sort of meat. Maybe its gouda cheese and caramelized onions. I dunno, but its good. The dinner salads are excellent and the only thing I hate about them is they don’t save too well, so I feel the need to finish the whole damn thing, which leaves no room for an entree. Split it if you can or it makes a meal on its own. The Cali Citrus Salad is my fave, and I usually hate fruit in my salad. They do have entree salads and a really great all you can eat salad bar.
Mac n Cheese, Pot Pie mashed potatoes, pizzas, avocado rolls… It’s all the comfort food you need in one place and in gargantuan portions.
It may not be gourmet, but it’s good classic food and I am always happy to eat here and throw my diet to the wind.
Save room for desserts (I know, I know..how?). Mother lode. Mother lode chocolate cake. And cheesecake is pretty damn good too.
Happy hour is disappointing because they have a plethora of wonderful sounding specialty cocktails, but they are only $1 off for HH. Bummer. Not much of a bargain if the drink is $10. But they do have a very good appetizer menu (calamari, nachos, shrimp tacos, etc) and 1/2 off of selected ones. Well drinks are $2 off. It’s a little empty, but now and then when we want a quiet quick HH with no fancy drinks and some 1/2 off chicken wings, and zuchini sticks we will stop in. The regulars are friendly enough and we have had nice times chatting with the ’tender and whoever may be next to us. For the beer lovers, they have a good selection of beer, but only $1 off. wtf? I go through stages with the bar. I like it for a while then get bitter of the worthless discounts. Minus a star, Claim Jumper! You can do better!
Be prepared for a wait if you stop in for dinner. WAit in the bar and try one their magical specialty cocktails.
One of the best Veggie Burgers I have had. The smoked Gouda and caramelized onions atop the Boca patty really make it.
Cucumber, Garlic Mayo, Tomato and Avocado on Toasted Wheat Bread finish it. And a slew of fries leaves you full.
Gourmet Mixed Salads, pasta salads, potato salads,olives, with a fresh variety of Greens & vegetables. Everything you could possibly need and cheese bread to boot. You will leave really stuffed.
I think its like 6 or 8 layers of rich moist chocolate cake with rich dark chocolate frosting and walnuts nestled into the frosting on the sides. I slice can easily feed three people.
Fresh Zucchini Spears Dipped in Breadcrumbs Lightly Fried and Tossed with Parmesan Cheese and Garlic. Very good. Perfect happy hour food.
Something for everyone! Everyone loves the cheese potatocake. Perfect for in the bar. Artichoke, Buffalo Wings, Zucchini, Mozzarella Sticks, Parmesan Garlic
Rings, Loaded Skins, Cheese Potatocake & Southwest Eggroll.
Another great bar choice. Tender. They have a discounted to $4.25 for Happy hour.
Spicy or Mild – Originated at the Anchor Bar, Buffalo, N.Y. Served with Celery, Carrots and Danish Bleu Cheese Dressing
Happy Hour Menu in bar only. Very good with fresh basil. Perfect with beer.
Sooo good. The dressing citrus dressing is awesome, so sweet, tangy, and light.
Iceberg, Romaine, Avocado, Glazed Pecans, Green Apples, Golden Raisins, Dried Cranberries, Mandarin Wedges, Danish Bleu Cheese Crumbles and Green Onions.

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…
