Great dinner at Allyson's Restaurant

We stopped by here for dinner and Cheryl, the owner (the restaurant is named Allyson's after her daughter), waited on us and cooked our meals which did not take long. We both thought the food here was better than Yak's further north on Highway 5 in Dunsmuir. We had the cheeseburger with the... read more

Best pizza we've had since leaving Chicago. Bright colorful atmosphere and the owner is super friendly and helpful. Don't leave with out trying the key lime pie.

My aunt and I are visiting Mt. Shasta this weekend. We landed in Sacramento, and have been driving all day to make our destination. We were starving when we happened upon Allyson's. My aunt got the vegetarian pizza and I got the honey ham and cheese sandwich. The pizza was beautifully presented! My sandwich tasted super!

They have pretty good food here but hire new employees and don't train well. Food takes a long time too. I ordered a blended iced mocha and the first employee said she didn't know how to make it. Another one took over and blended it so runny it was like drinking juice. The owner is an excellent cook but when... More

A little off-beat, but delightful. Not your average American road food. Be adventurous, give it a try. The salmon burgers are great.

thought we would try this place with our son since the local bar and grill was more bar like. Service was bad, food took forever, no air conditioning. Chips were stale, the menu listed items we thought would come with our meal and did not. The service here was the worst I have experienced in a long time. The older... More

Life is art...and art is life. When you step into Allysons it is as if you are stepping into a colorful canvas...and you become part of the art. The owner Cheryl is a vibrant restaurant owner and a vibrant artist. The food is grand...the welcoming atmosphere is grander. Art on the walls. Worth the stop. Amazing craft beers and nice... More

Allyson's is a most unique restaurant. The owner is also an artist, so you can enjoy a delicious meal and enjoy the art display. Very reasonable prices and everything is homemade. I stop there every time I'm in that area. Easy access off I-5 and WiFi.

If you want a funky restaurant, this is it. We had pizza, which was only okay, outside on plastic tables with plastic table cloths. The owner is great, really interesting. I thought she was going to sit down and join us, which would have been fine. The restaurant is open all the time and since we were late, it was... More
