Claim Jumper restaurant now open in former McCormick & Schmick’s site in downtown Sacramento

Claim Jumper restaurant opened in downtown Sacramento on Tuesday, three months after the McCormick & Schmick’s seafood and steak restaurant closed at the same site in the landmark Elks Building.

The switch at 1111 J St., was announced in early October by Landry’s Inc., the Houston-based restaurant, hospitality, gaming and entertainment company. Landry’s is the owner of hundreds of restaurant properties, including the McCormick & Schmick’s and Claim Jumper brands.

Claim Jumper presents a decidedly different downtown vibe than the comparatively high end McCormick & Schmick’s, which opened in 2007 with an $1.8 million assist from the city of Sacramento. The money was used to remodel the ground floor of the Elks Building into a dark-paneled space for McCormick & Schmick’s, where menu prices ranged from $16 for a hamburger to $50 for king crab legs.

Claim Jumper, in contrast, offers large portions of comfort food, most priced at less than $20.

Landry's ownership umbrella covers more than 40 well-known dining brands, including Landry’s Seafood, Chart House, Saltgrass Steak House, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., Morton’s The Steakhouse, Mastro’s Restaurants and Rainforest Cafe.
