Tough day at work? Great day at work? Just want to have a beer with friends? Well, Woody’s is the place in all three cases. Let’s face it, bars are supposed to be fun and Woody’s fits that bill.

When you want to go out and spend your hard-earned money for a great night out, there’s really only one option that has everything – Clearie’s Restaurant & Lounge.
When Robbie Clearie opened the restaurant in 2011, Redding history collided with her place located on the site that had been The Shack. In addition, she ordered up a few dishes from her grandfather’s restaurant Doc’s Skyroom and Sports Bar.
Fast forward and Clearie’s is the go-to for a great night out and overall dining experience. From it’s amazing bar and attentive bar staff to ridiculous appetizers and a menu that looks like it was plucked from a New York or L.A. five-star restaurant, Clearie’s breaks the mold for great dining in Redding.
With its history and Robbie Clearie out to make her own history, it’s not hard to see why Best Of voters continually choose her place as the Best Restaurant.
If it’s not broke, don’t fix it. That sums up the experience at Jack’s Grill, a Redding eating institution for more than 80 years. Familiar, Reliable, Consistent, It’s a winning formula that Jack’s hasn’t messed with.

Open for dinner every day except Sunday, Jack’s Grill has 17 bar seats and accommodates 46 in the dining room’s old-style booths and tables – many who will wait for a while to get a taste of that amazing steak. Despite its size, the restaurant averages between 150 and 200 customers each night.
Redding has known what the world is catching up on with all the media attention focused on Jack’s – if you want a steak done right, there’s only one place to go.

Cheesecakes Unlimited opened in downtown Redding in 1991 and was an instant success. In fact, their loyal customer base kept growing so much they’ve had to move several times.
Though their cheesecake really is fabulous, Cheesecakes is perhaps best known for their amazing salads, something Best Of voters knows as top-notch.
With locally sourced vegetables and dressings made from scratch, it’s hard to miss with any of the salads. There are 11 on the menu, so choosing can be a challenge. The choices include tasty options like the Glazed Walnut Chicken with orange champagne vinaigrette and the Shrimp Pine nut with a garlic basil vinaigrette topped with blue cheese.
Cheesecakes Unlimited’s home in the old Pine Street School is as fun and fresh as its many delicious salads.
