If you're after tasty home-style cooking at reasonable prices, head to Black Bear Diner. Our food was delicious, and the service was great. Lots of dishes to choose from and a fun atmosphere in which to enjoy them.

Visited here a number of times while in Shasta. The service was great from the moment we entered with our order taken quickly & the food delivered in a timely manner, piping hot. The portions are large so take out boxes were appreciated!
