Claim Jumper Steakhouse
Claim-Jumper Steakhouse has moved from old Park City Hotel to its new location in Heber City. While a simple menu, including the baked Idaho mushrooms, satisfy vegetarian taste buds, most diners come here for the massive portions of meat. Top sirloin, buffalo T-bone and king crab remain favorites, as does the rack of baby back ribs. All dinners include salad, potatoes and bread, and a full liquor menu is available.
What should I complain about first? Holy cow, was this place OVERPRICED!!! I was blown away when I first saw the menu. It actually took me about ten minutes to see the menu. They have the menu glued on to a bottle, but they don't tell you it is the menu. Maybe others are smart enough to see it, but I didn't notice it was the menu for about ten minutes. When I looked, I saw I had about 3 options for dinner, overpriced steak, overpriced chicken or overpriced fish. What to choose? I picked the overpriced steak. At least, that's what I thought I picked. When I got my food, there was a huge, softball shaped piece of meat on my plate. I'm no butcher, but I think I'm pretty well informed about different cuts of meat. I have no clue what cut of meat this was. It was round. It was sinewy. It was dry. As I cut the steak, pieces of it would flake off. It was very, very disappointing.
I have been to restaurants called Claimjumper in Reno and California. They were excellent. This place is not the same place. This place was awful! Save yourself the disappointment, save yourself the $35 a plate, and go across the street to Arby's. THIS PLACE IS HORRIBLE!!!
Everything was wonderful! The steak was cooked as requested. The ribs were great. It has the old west and cabin feel to it. The service was wonderful. A bit pricey, but I won't complain too much about that since our meals were so tastey.
I am shocked at the other reviews! My wife and I ate at the claim jumper in Heber Utah last week and can't wait to go back. We had an option to order off a bottle menu or a special winter recession menu. I had the small prime rib and my wife had the 401k bob which is a kabob of chicken and veggies. First of all, the prime rib was the best thing that has ever entered my mouth!!!!!!!! It was AMAZING!!! my wife liked the kbob so much that she wouldn't share. The bread and salad that comes with the entrees was very good also. You definately get your moneys worth at that place. I was also very impressed with the proffesionalism of the staff and the manager. The manager was very nice and personable. He made us feel like we owned the place! Great place, great food, and great people! Can't wait to see you again!!
What a let down. I've been wanting to go to this restaurant for a very long time and finally I was in the area during there business hours. My wife and I stopped in and were immediately sat next to a gas fireplace in a cabin style room with rustic decor. The menu was brought out and it is pasted on a used wine bottle. This would be something that might be considered charming for a hole in the wall place but not for a place with this name. We gazed at the menu and our jaws hit the table. Extremely overpriced food was listed and the choices were very limited. Now I'm in no way cheap when it comes to food. I am a chef and I appreciate good food and the cost that can be associated with that good food. On the low end of the spectrum you have, what they called a chop sirloin (can you say..hamburger w/out the bun?) for $14.95 all the way up to Salmon $29.95. They were running a special on beef ribs for $15.95. The wife chose the teriyaki chicken $18.95 and I chose the beef ribs. I love beef ribs and my wife really loves Teri Chicken so our expectations were high, especially considering the ridiculous price for any of their food. All entrees come with bread, butter, salad, and a side. We both chose a baked potato and my dish also came with baked beans.
The bread was decent. It's kind of hard to screw that up although I've seen it done. Also the salad wasn't bad either. But again can you really screw that up? Side note: Salad on its own? $8.95 Now, when our main dishes came we both about almost laughed loudly when we saw what was given to us. On the Teri Chicken plate was a sad chicken breast that might have been 8 ounces before it was cooked. As it was grilled to imperfection it was slightly doused with teri sauce that I can guarantee came from a jar. And sitting on top of this poor breast was two grilled slices of pineapple straight out of the can. This dish looked like something that you would expect to see on the buffet line at Circus Circus. The potato sitting next to it was as big as my two fists and had a nickels worth of sour cream and butter sprinkled with what might have been chives at one time. Of course it all tasted worse that it looked. Rubbery, flavorless, and cheap.
Next, my plate. 4 massive beef ribs. I mean these were the size of my foot. The first problem was that the amount of meat on them was minimal. And what was on it was charred black and looked like someone attempted to put barbecue sauce on them but missed most of the meat. Once you got under the charred meat it was semi okay. The meat that was left was tender. But tasted like the charred garbage on the outside of it. Also on my plate was another two fist sized potato and a little bowl of baked beans. Now I like beans and for this kind of money these beans were going to be great!...NOPE....CANNED and if they weren't they were severely over cooked and over sugared.
All in all I can say with firm conviction that I or my wife will not ever be going back to this unfortunate restaurant. Nor, will we ever make a recommendation to do so. Well.....maybe we would recommend it to someone we didn't like.
Please do your self a favor and skip this all together. If someone is going to take you there, might I suggest an alternative? I know a place just down the road that serves decent food and you can get plenty of it. McDonalds!
If you agree that salads and broccoli soup should both be green, then you will be very disappointed at Claim Jumper. I just wanted a light dinner of soup and salad. What a disappointment. The steaks smelled good, though.
