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.
This restaurant has a very cozy, friendly atmosphere inspired not only by it'd decor, but in it's staff. This is a great place for friends and family to get togther, but probably isn't the best place for a romantic dinner because of the noise level. The Claim Jumper offers terrific food at modest prices, and is one of very few restaurants that still offer a full salad bar. A word to the wise though - any meal on the menu is enough food for two people to get completly full on.
