The Claim Jumper is located inside the South Coast Plaza mall, but is accessible directly from the parking lot. Doors open at 11:00 am, and not a minute sooner, as we discovered, having arrived a little early. I tried the Widow Maker burger and it was HUGE. Don't order it unless you have a big appetite. Service was okay.

This is our first time to eat at a Claim Jumper. We arrived before the evening meal prices went into effect, late afternoon. The portions are huge, they could easily be shared and still have plenty to eat.

Went there with a party of 13 ~ cousins reunion. Got us all around one large table and did a good job serving. Food was just okay, probably better if you don't have a large group.

Met a group of friends for a drink and ending up having dinner. Great service and good bar menu. Reasonably priced.

We had a great steak dinner at the Claim Jumper at the South Coast Plaza last night. My husband and I were looking for a place to have a steak dinner that wouldn't "break the bank!" We just weren't up for paying $54 - $59 for a bone-in ribeye. There are times when we absolutely will treat ourselves to the... More

This restaurant is in a perfect location. Great for enjoying a meal or cocktail during a shopping trip. Also excellent for dinner with the family. Good price, great food and nice atmosphere. The staff are friendly and accommodating.

Okay I make a killer meatloaf but Claim Jumper comes in a very close second. Everyone thought so that tried it. There is almost too much on your plate but OMG it is delish! I really look forward to going back to the Claim Jumper on 17th and Tustin Avenue in Santa Ana. The staff was a bit lackluster and... More

Great food and service but what really stood out was the appetizer of deep fried pickle slices, spicy peppers and orange slices. It was really good and only $3. Their desserts looks so good we ordered the carrot cake for us all to share, the slice is enormous. Salads were also well made and just the right size. I was... More
