Welcome to the Basshole Bar and Grill, Lake Shasta’s favorite watering hole. We’re your one-stop shop for good food, fishing gear, souvenirs, and fun times. Pull up a bar stool and make yourself comfortable!
The Basshole is famous, more than anything, for its awesome food and drinks. Our Bloody Marys are local legends, and the rest of our cocktail menu isn’t too shabby, either. Swing on by for Happy Hour Tuesday through Friday, 4-6 pm.
Our menu is stocked with all the favorites that will satisfy you after a long day out on the lake. Try one of our famous Basshole Burgers, which come with two patties and loads of cheese, or our USDA choice rib eye steak. If a large slab of red meat isn’t your thing, we’ve got several different chicken options, pasta with fish, and lots of salads. The menu has something for everybody!
On top of having some of the best food and drinks around Lake Shasta, we’ve also got all the gear you’ll need. Our shop is stocked with fishing supplies and souvenirs for everybody.
For the serious fishers, you’ll find bait, tackle, and poles of all sizes, just in case you forgot yours at home or find that the fish aren’t interested in what you brought with you. If you need waders, a net, or a cooler, you can find them in our store. Stock up on snacks for a day out on the water, and don’t forget your sun protection – we’ve got hats and sunscreen in both spray and cream styles.
Basshole regulars know that things are always hopping around here, but sometimes, we have something a little special up our sleeve. Here are some of our favorite regular events.
Taco Tuesday: Stop by every Tuesday for Taco Tuesday. We’ll have pitchers of margaritas and a variety of tacos at a special Tuesday price. You won’t want to miss our chef’s faith creations of classic tacos or his unique new taco ideas. Whether you’re a traditionalist or an adventurous eater, you’ll find something to satisfy your craving.
After a great winter with loads of rain and snow runoff, Lake Shasta is up and running at full steam. Bring your own boat and drop it in, or rent one of the many boats available here in a range of size and prices. There are several marinas around the lake that offer a variety of services, and you can rent a houseboat for a pleasant getaway, too.
Amenities around the lake are in great shape now. The trees are green and happy after struggling through the drought for so long, which means all your favorite camping, picnicking, and napping spots are looking as good as you’ve seen them in years. Don’t miss the chance to park a boat in a quiet cove, set up some poles, and relax for an afternoon. The swimming is good and so is the hiking.
