Food always very good. Menu much reduced in size. We visited on a week night and it was pretty quiet. I had a perfectly cooked filet mignon and my husband ordered ahi. Food, presentation, service all good. Rise pilaf was done with white rice. Perhaps they could try adding wild rice to the mix?

I had a perfectly cooked fillet and its got a great salad bar. Nice view with friendly people. I would much rather eat here than Orange Hill. Be careful driving up and going back down!

I love this place. Steak, seafood, nice sides, salad bar, great service, hilltop location with awesome views from almost every table. My Ribeye on my last visit was done perfectly and the barley soup was a terrific starter, though sometimes I have their chili which is always good.

The food is terrific and the view is amazing! Ask for a table next to a window and you will be mesmerized. It's high up on a hill and has a spectacular view. The waiters are all very attentive and there are lots of great choices on the menu.

This is a favorite of my Grandchildren age 10 and 12. Food was very good, service was great and the view is wonderful. The menu is very good and we loved the mining theme. Will definitely return many times.

Just across the canyon from Orange Hill, Orange County Mining Co offers a more relaxed and novelty-type dining experience minutes from main OC freeways. Expect spectacular views of the city (call ahead and ask for a window), 1800's ghost town ambiance, and great food too! On our most recent visit, we decided to try the Sunday brunch. We booked the...
