The Clubhouse in Cost Mesa Closing

I just received an E-mail from The Clubhouse restaurant at South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa. It seems that they will be closing their doors at the end of this year. If you're a member, go use your points. If you like their establishment, go eat there one last time because it'll be gone soon.

  1. Is this place any good, never been? Got a coupon for $25 off $50 or more or $50 off $100 or more.

      Totally worth it if you have a coupon. I would suggest their Champagne Sunday Brunch. A great spread of the best items they have on their menu. I'm quite fond of their bar...great drinks and the atmosphere is pretty that country club sort of way.

      1. re: attran99

        I never cared for the food. I had a rather disgusting chicken picatta. The other time I had a burger and it was just okay. I would not recommend this place, but that's just me.

      2. re: groover808

        I think I fall in the middle. While I wouldn't go on my own accord, I might go w/a coupon...I find the food to be just okay, nothing spectacular, but a nice, clean environment. I wouldn't recommend it either, but coupons can often compel me to go.

          Agree 100%. Although they do have a pretty good lobster bisque...thankfully in a normal-sized cup. Some dishes are Claimjumper huge.

          1. re: lil mikey

            Agree with the lobster bisque...really good on a really cold day.

      3. I never dined in their restaurant, but I used to run into their booths at various "taste of" festivals. What I remember them for is meatloaf with mashed potatoes and gravy served stacked in the style of a hot fudge brownie a la mode.

        Draw your own conclusions.
