The Orange County Mining Company is a restaurant that sits atop a hillside in Orange and offers spectacular views of the city below. The narrow winding road leading up to the restaurant is a little hair raising, and may result in your ordering an alcoholic beverage to calm your nerves once you arrive ;) but the food is fantastic, the service is friendly and efficient and the atmosphere is fun and great for a special occasion or a romantic dinner for two. I'd really recommend this restaurant for people who enjoy a good generous cut of meat. They offer prime rib, a variety of different steaks, ribs, chicken and a nice array of seafood as well. The soup and salad bar is huge and can make for a meal in itself. Be sure to try the chili, it is delicious! And, like the previous reviewer mentioned, the cheese bread that they serve is soooo good. Although I've always been too full to try them, their desserts look absolutely heavenly. I don't think you'll be disappointed if you give this spot a try. They do take reservations and I'd recommend you make them. Oh, and although I haven't tried it yet, they do have a Sunday champagne brunch and I bet it's good! The Orange County Mining Company is located off of Chapman Avenue at 10000 Crawford Canyon Rd.
