Poor service, average quality food and loud music. Only plus was that the plates were nice and cold at the salad bar. Way too long for service to order food and way too long to get food. The restaurant was not busy.

After having had some really good experiences in the M.V area I have to say this was the best. Claim Jumper is now one of our favorites. The staff are very pleasant the food is very good, the service is excellent and the prices are affordable.

Lunch venue seems much better than dinner. Seated immediately, no waiting or lines but I got the Landry Club, so waiting is not an option. We started with a couple of CJ Classic Mules, then had Jambalaya and Citrus Salad with chicken. Jambalaya has a nice kick with lots of seafood. It was the pasta version, so not the big... More

This is our go-to "Cheers" bar and restaurant. The happy hour is dinner-worthy, and the bar where it's served is huge! HH menu is robust and prices are awesome for food and drinks. We like to order Caesar salad and small pizzas that are made right there and baked in their big, brick pizza oven. Sometimes I order fried zucchini... More

Was delicious! Very great service. Accommodating to children and bring out plates of snacks for kids before their meals show up.

My wife and I had dinner here on Sept. 30th, 2016. Parking was no trouble and we were seated in about 5 minutes. The menu has a lot of options and with it being our first time there we needed a few minutes to look over the menu. The server gave us all the time we needed. We decided on... More

This restaurant is comparable to other steak chain restaurants. Nothing too fancy or imaginative, but good decent food. Service was good and prices were reasonable.

The service was slow, lackadaisical and inattentive. The food was mediocre. I had heard so much about what a great restaurant this was and I was thoroughly disappointed.
