Omg!!! Sooooo much food! – Nice full super size meals. The crabcakes are awesome here! The menu is very full. Lots of good choices. Don't forget to order the chocolate cake!
Happy Hour at Claim Jumper – We found little to recommend CJ's Happy Hour, however the hours are from 3-7 which is a little unusual.
The drink specials are fine but the Lemon Drop wasn't really muddled and we tried the White Sangria and wasn't impressed. The Happy Hour food specials are pretty standard with most being deep fried (ugh). I would recommend the roasted tomato flatbread and maybe the sliders (served two to the order, not the usual three). I know the restaurant portions are huge but that doesn't apply to the bar food. Still, it was fun to try some place new and the staff is friendly!
The usual – A bite of amerca. Well maybe thousands of bite in one order but it is worth the money. The service has always been good. Recommended.
Gold mining and dining unite at this kitschy all-American eatery. – In Short
Established in 1977, the Claim Jumper draws families, seniors and professionals with a mix of Old-West decor and a reliable menu of American classics. Logs, corrugated tin, rock and warm fireplaces embellish the unique ambience. Signature plates include hickory-smoked pork ribs, rotisserie chicken and barbecued beef tri-tip; the menu also offers tortilla chicken soup, potpies, wood-fired pizzas, and the popular six-layer Chocolate Motherlode Cake. The saloon features appetizers and the restaurant's own brews.
Huge portions of low quality food. – Unfortunately I had to visit Claim Jumper again for a business function. This was about the third time I have eaten there and have yet to get what I would consider decent food. Everytime the food has been bland and tasteless. My lastest attempt I got the Rib-Eye which was tough and the blue cheese tasted like sour cream left out on the counter too long. Other dishes I have tried to my dismay were Chicken-Pot Pie and their Calamari dinner. Not a single one of these dishes warrants ever eating there again. The portions are so large they border on hyperbole. Claim Jumper feels like more of a cliche than an eating eastablishment because they focus on the size of the portions and not the quality. It's amazing that this chain still exists as I have been to three different restuarants with the same poor results. Service is average and the menu selection is good, but when the quality of the food is low who cares how many different entrees exist. Just another low-quality american restaurant serving up obesity one platter at a time.
Huge portions, great service, but make reservations if you can – Definitely the words Hefty, Hefty, Hefty comes to mind. I'm referring to the food portions. I think most people can get away with sharing a dish there easily and still leave full. Its obvious that the portions are huge since many people actually take a lot of it home with them if you ever watched them stream out of the restaurant.
The menu selection is huge. I would almost compare the size of the menu to that of the Cheesecake Factory. In fact I would almost compare the quality of the food to that of the Cheesecake Factory too. Hmmm wonder if they're owned by the same people.
Anyways, the place is for sorts of people --- kids, family, couples, dates, etc. The place is large enough to have this variety. The food is tastey and if you haven't figured it out yet, the portions are huge.
Claim Jumper is awesome! – When it first opened, I kept hearing so many good things about it. When I finally went, I definately wasn't disappointed. The food was excellent and the service was ok. Claim Jumper is one of the best American food restaurants that I have been to.
Large portions! – If you like to eat a lot and be stuffed - go here! We never manage to leave not stuffed. The portions are more than generous. The food is very good and a great menu - lots of selections. Try going for just dessert and have the Mother Lode Cake!
Good but beware – All I can say is that if you order a double drink, they charge you for two single drinks. As in, if a rum and coke is $7, a double rum and coke is $14. It can add up pretty quick! I wish they had told us that before we got the bill. For the rest, their menu has a wide variety, the food is pretty good and we had fantastic service.
I love Claim Jumper! – So the prices are kinda high, but definently worth the portion sizes (don't worry, you'll have lunch tomorrow). Service at the Redmond one is okay, but I find them to be nicer at the Tukwila location. Faves: Bacon Cheddar soup and the Calamari (I love it!). Only complaint I have is management at Redmond wasn't very polite on one experience with a drink.
