Bar
“You don't need to be a golfer to enjoy the wonderful restaurant and bar at the resort. Located on an award winning golf course, the views in the dining room and bar (especially the deck off the bar in the summer) are incredible. Watch the wildlife in the various ponds or just gaze at the unobstructed Mt Shasta and Mt Eddy views. The food is consistently good, they will customize your meal with a smile and the full bar is well stocked. When someone asks me to lunch and where do I want to go, I almost always say "the resort"! ”

“The Dining Car Restaurant is one of the most interesting restaurants in Dunsmuir. Built inside vintage railroad cars, the restaurant is a museum itself. Inside its antique cars is an atmosphere steeped in nostalgia. Antique hand tools, gauges, pictures, signals and other artifacts recall the glory days of railroading in the west and specifically the Dunsmuir and McCloud area. Enjoy your favorite cocktail or a specialty drink like the Orange Blossom Special. In the warmer months, relax on the patio deck and gaze up at the view of Castle Crags. The dinner menu features exquisite steaks, seafood, fish, chicken and pasta dishes. Prime rib is offered on Friday and Saturday while it lasts.”

“Anyone traveling up and down the 1-5 corridor in Calif knows of the Black Bear Diner. This one is where it all started. A very popular diner with travelers, it is also a locals favorite when you are really hungry! On Fridays they have all you can eat fish fry with great fish and fries and yummy cole slaw! You can never say you walked away hungry after dining at the Bear. But leave room for their cobblers ala mode! ”
