A quaint little 50s diner that had a menu that reflected that era. Portions were super large so you definitely don't go away hungry. Service was great, greeting was warm & friendly, food was delicious, and some place we'll return when given the opportunity.

Wow, it is like we were in the 1950's. Lots of charm. Clean, clean, clean! The staff, James and Barbara could not be nicer. James, the cook deserves lots of kudos for being so attentive to my gluten free needs. Yes, they offer gluten free items. It is a place I will highly recommend and if we ever come back... More

This place is open 24x7 and if you live in their lodging which is Oak Tree Inn they have discounts for the breakfast. We had breakfast for both days we stayed there, pretty standard although it's freshly made.

We stopped for lunch. It was very clean; new looking 1950's style diner with lively 50's music playing. We ordered burgers & fries. They were made fresh to order and delicious. Would definitely eat there again!

We happened to find the Oak Tree Inn attached to this GREAT little Diner! It was open 24 hrs a day and we liked that when we came home late after wedding preparations in McCloud.

Walking in to this restaurant felt like walking into the 1950's. The decor is wonderful and the food options were numerous. It DID seem a little slow and very laid back in terms of service. I wouldn't go there is I was in a rush.

A friendly place to eat. Reminds me of the diners we have eaten at on the East Coast. We have eaten here 3 times on three trips thru Dunsmuir and the cooks have always been very friendly and had no problems with adjusting the meal to meet our special dietary needs. Thanks for a good meal.

Bacon had the taste and texture of poster board. Hash Browns were soggy. Never again. Toast was close in taste and texture to the bacon. The over easy eggs were crispy?!?
