Islands Restaurants 
 
 
"Islands Restaurants was founded in 1982 with a basic philosophy – serve great, fresh food with friendly service in a fun atmosphere. Entrepreneur Tony DeGrazier had a vision of a restaurant that would offer a simple, original menu featuring gourmet hamburgers, specialty drinks and a fun, tropical theme. In fact, he wanted to recreate the dining experiences he had in the 1960s while stationed in Oahu with his Navy buddies. Islands was an instant hit -- we ran out of food the first night at our West Los Angeles location, and we’ve been building a loyal following ever since. Since that first night, we’ve been slowly expanding and building upon our success. You can now find more than 50 Islands Restaurants throughout Southern California and Arizona, and more recently in places like Summerlin, NV and Sacramento. Over the years, we’ve added a few more burgers, served too many two-pound baskets of our fresh-cut fries to count, and perfected our salads and soft tacos, but our commitment to you – our guest – hasn’t changed."  Anaheim, Brea, Chino, Foothill Ranch, Fountain Valley, Fullerton, Huntington Beach, Irvine, Laguna Hills, Long Beach, Mission Viejo, Newport Beach, Orange, Seal Beach

Formerly 24 hours, but open until 11 p.m., or 1 a.m. Friday & Saturday nights. "With a unique mix of food, atmosphere and service, the Jerry's Famous Deli family stands out in the American restaurant landscape. After opening its flagship location in 1978, in Studio City, CA, Jerry's immediately began to establish a reputation as the quintessential delicatessen. From the menu (featuring over 600 traditional deli and dining favorites) to the moderate prices, to the delivery and catering services, people who love food have found that there is a lot to love about Jerry's. Capitalizing on its prominent location near major television and film studios, the original Jerry's developed a loyal customer base of residents and local employees, in addition to being popular with tourists. That success made it clear that the concept was a natural for expansion, and after a decade in the business a new restaurant chain was born. Over the next eight years, Jerry's proceeded to open eight wildly successful stores throughout Southern California."  Costa Mesa

Orange County Mining Company Restaurant 
 
 
A restaurant with a first class view! Fine salad bar, too. "It pictures mines and wealth; it portrays tales of hope and faith in search of silver. Along the Silverado, eager miners drove their tunnels, and prospectors combed the mountain side and canyon bottoms, all in search of signs of precious metal. Silverado Canyon, formerly known as Canada del la Madera to the Indians and Spanish Californians, was an already explored canyon when J.E. Pleasants and Sam Shewsbury pioneered in the Santiago Canyon of which Silverado is a branch. Goats were raised at nearly all of the ranches and for years vied with bees as the principal industry. The sleepy canyon settlements idled quietly until one day in the fall of 1877, Hank Smith and William Curry came upon silver ore. The first claim, Southern Belle, remained relatively dormant. Then another mine, The Santa Clara, was located. An article published in the Los Angeles Times heralded the discovery of silver and from that point on, men rushed into the canyon seeking fame and fortune. Creaking wagons, some of which had come across the plains, spring wagons, carts, dilapidated old surries and shiny rigs from livery stables clattered over the rocks at the crossings and sweating horses dragged the outfits into the new found El Dorado. With the arrival of prospectors, new shops, hotels and saloons emerged. It is in the tradition of the Old Silverado grubberies and saloons that the Orange County Mining Company was patterned. The Orange County Mining Company actually sits upon one of the old silver mine sites at the canyon. Relics displayed within the restaurant's interior are genuine artifacts of the mining era.
