Claim Jumper

How I heard of this place: About a decade (eh hem…probably more) ago, I was facilitating study groups with a friend of mine, and this was one of the nearby restaurants he introduced me to on our way to the study circle (in Southcenter). This was my first visit to the Lynnwood establishment.

Our saloons are a comfortable gathering place to relax after a day at work, to catch a game or share an appetizer with friends. The saloon menu features signature cocktails, chilled martinis, premium and ultra premium spirits, specialty non-alcoholic beverages, an extensive wine list, and imported and American craft beers including Claim Jumper’s own Honey Blonde, Original Red Ale and Hefeweizen. When you step inside a Claim Jumper you will discover an environment that is warm and comfortable. The interiors of our restaurants feature huge Douglas Fir logs, natural rock, corrugated and pressed tin, natural and finished woods and large fireplaces. Rich fabrics, authentic log chairs, and ceiling fans are used to decorate our lobbies, dining rooms and saloons. Many of our locations feature exhibition cooking where guests watch as pizzas are prepared in an authentic wood-burning oven, and salads, soups and desserts are meticulously prepared. As a leader in the food service industry, Claim Jumper is not resting on its reputation. We ask ourselves daily how we can improve and continue to raise our standards in every area of the restaurant… the variety of our menu, the quality and presentation of our food, and the efficiency of our service.
