After appetizer's at another restaurant, we decided to go to the Claim Jumper for dessert...there is nothing small about this place and the desserts didn't disappoint.
Favorite Dish: Well this was actually the first time LJ and I ate dinner here...it was
soooooo good!!! We started off with the Appetizer Combo (battered
artichokes, buffalo wings, battered zucchini, mozzarella sticks, parmesan
garlic rings, loaded skins, cheese potatocakes and southwest eggrolls).
For Dinner, LJ had the Crab Cakes Dinner (breaded & grilled all white
lump crab meat mixed with roasted poblano, vegetables, peppers & spices
served with field greens, balsamic dressing, fries & two dipping sauces). I
had the Beef Back Ribs (hickory smoked beef back ribs, cheesy
potatocakes and a huge homemade biscuit with honey butter).
For dessert, try the huge slices of Cream Cheese Pie (a rich cream
cheese filling with a Lorna Doone cookie crust and a sour cream topping) and
Caramel Apple Cheese Pie (a rich cream cheese pie topped with a spiced
apple caramel topping and a Lorna Doone cookie crust). Two slices fed four
people and there was some left over.
Reminiscent of the Old west, guests of Claim Jumper find the restaurants aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Huge Douglas Fir logs, tons of natural rock, corrugated and pressed tin, and natural and finished woods are just some of the features of these impressive buildings.
Favorite Dish: Try the Chilled Cashew Chicken which is oven roasted chilled white meat chicken tossed with cashews, celery, curry and mayonnaise, sliced tomatoe and crisp greens (served on a hearth baked onion tomato bread)...Totally awesome!!!
