Visiting friends while on business. They brought me for their happy hour specials. Many yummy choices and drinks were outstanding. Loved the lemon drop martini! I picked wedge salad and widow burger. Both fabulous and I highly recommend. Our waiter Kurt was attentive and fun... definitely be back...likely again on this trip!

Friendly service! Delicious food, My wife loved the Roast Beef Dip and my son got the Club sandwich which was good. I got the Cashew Chicken Sandwich, which was great!

Went here as a colleague of ours 'claimed' it was quite good. I was not too happy with my meal and another colleague felt the same, we both sent our meals back as they arrived cold. A bit disappointing and was not really satisfied as the restaurant was not that crowded so no reason for that to happened.

The staff was friendly and courteous. However I ended up with a foreign body in my salad and while the server apologized and removed it from my bill I was expecting the manager to at least come over and say something. That did not happen. Very disappointing.

I had the sirloin steak. It was very good not great. It was prepared the way I asked. The salad bar was very good with lots of choices. The staff was very attentive with several,Pfeil,e asking if we needed anything. I had the carrot cake and it was amazing. Too much for one sitting after eating a meal.

We drove 5.5 hours from Nevada to Carlsbad and got here on a Tuesday afternoon around 4. We stopped at Claim Jumpers to take advantage of their happy hour offerings. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Our waiter (Jason? He said he was relatively new) recommended the coconut shrimp. He was absolutely right, they were so... More

Menu is large many options for any appetite, but all options are pricey. They have 1/2 price appetizers during happy hour in the pub area that are reasonable, with full menu available also . Service is reasonable and friendly.

Thank Bill R
