Our dining room, patio and bar area are now open for dine-in service! Seating is limited to 50% of our tables to ensure 6ft of social distancing between guests; and reservations are suggested. During summer season at Lake Almanor we are OPEN for dinner Wednesday-Sunday, 5PM-9PM, and closed on Mondays & Tuesdays. Last seating for the dining room is 8:30PM; and the bar stays usually open later for drinks. Join us for the best steak and bottle of your favourite cab, grab an appetizer and cocktail and catch your favourite team on one of the big screen in the bar, or enjoy cold pint of craft beer and burger by the pool table.


We all know how crazy busy the 4th of July weekend can be up here at Almanor! Our restaurant is still OPEN and NOT AFFECTED by recent Governor's closures; but to ensure for proper social distancing, half of our tables are not available for seating. Please plan ahead and consider making a reservation to avoid long wait times. During this weekend, the online ordering for take-out will not be available, and phone take-out orders will be considered based on the business level.
We greatly appreciate your business and support during this time; and we look forward to serving you soon. Thank you!
