The best part about vacation is arguably the food, right?! That is why we are here to give you a rundown of dining options at Shasta Lake. And don’t worry, you won’t find McDonald’s or other franchises on this list. We’re sticking to the best local and family-owned restaurants as a tribute to small businesses everywhere. And as a fun, sweet treat, we’ll also include some DIY and campfire meals you can include on your vacation with ease. Ready to eat, oops, learn more? Let’s get started!
The Cookhouse and Blue Oak Room
It can’t get any better than lake views while dining, and the Cookhouse restaurant is just the spot to grab a bite with the best views on offer. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, this family-friendly local is the place to go for home-style meals and comfort food. With an assortment of traditional, American options, there is bound to be an option for everyone in your group.
Located upstairs, the Blue Oak Room is the perfect spot to hang out after a hard day’s work of vacationing. Both spots at Bridge Bay Marinas are locals-preferred spots, so you’ll walk away feeling the full Shasta Lake experience at these establishments.
The Old Mill Eatery Smokehouse
Known for its breakfast and healthy-sized portions, the Old Mill Eatery Smokehouse is your go-to for all things smoked and BBQ in California. You can bring your furry family members or human friends and enjoy a glass of wine in addition to the delicious food. Come hungry for this one!
When you need that morning or afternoon pick-me-up, Heritage Coffeehouse has your back. This local spot is a much better stop than Starbucks and Einstein Bagels combined. You can also get some delicious treats and food items fresh from the bakery, not to mention some downtime away from the crowds. You have to come here at least once during your stay at Shasta Lake!
Woody’s Brewing Company
And, hey, last but not least, what is a good vacation without a good beer to go with it? Our last must-stop spot is Woody’s Brewing Company. Come for the beer, stay for the vibes. This family-owned business has it all: food, drinks, and fun! Even if you are not a big drinker, this one is worth stopping at for the food, we promise. Hello, bomb apps!
Does your rental have a kitchen or even a campfire? If yes, then you don’t have to go very far for meals, either. A night in can be even more fun than a night out, and an easy way to make the best memories with friends and family. Some of the best recipes come right out of creativity and exploration. Try something new for dinner and then end your evening traditionally by roasting marshmallows for s’mores.
No matter your style or taste, you are sure to find good eats at Shasta Lake!
