In to get lunch today waited in line next to huge hostess will seat you sign and no one seated us or acknowledged us for at least 20 minutes. We sat at the bar to witness about 20 other people treated the same and watched them leave all after waiting a long amount of time. I held back from ordering... More

We are sorry that your trip to our rest. was less than expected. This new years weekend was the most extreme change in patterns that we have seen in 10 years. Our staffing is based on years of past records and for sure this year has been an exception. We have seen a 250% increase in customers for this past... More

Usually fish and chips is OK. This was terrific. It was Whitefish - and very good whitefish. Service was excellent on a sleepy Sunday afternoon. Unique ambience eating surrounded by bobcats, beavers and critters. Fun and tasty!

Stopped in for breakfast and was glad i did. Nice, friendly, rustically decorated and offering very good food at fair prices. As it was Sunday morning in October, the TV was offering NFL pregame shows, which suited me fine. My meal arrived and coffee was closely attended to as I got the latest opinions for today's games. A pleasant experience... More

Can't beat the prices and can't be the good home-cooked food and ate there for every night that we came back from our daily trips.

This place has a pretty good rating and was open at 8pm. We were the only people ordering food and they appeared to be getting ready to close. The food was ok, but my order was not done the first time and had to be sent back to be done again. The cook must guess when food was ready as... More

Great food, friendly service, and terrific atmosphere! Impressive selection of craft beers on tap, and the smoked chicken was one of the best meals I've ever had! I will definitely be back on our next trip to the North country.

We had dinner here. Hot beef sandwich and a Hamburger. Also French Onion Soup. The food was rather bland and disappointing.

Had to ask for menu after waiting 15 minutes, After 15 more minutes ask to have order taken after 30 more minutes we walked out. There was never more than 4 tables with guest during the hour we waited and it was just my son and myself at the table. Worst service i have ever had in my life.

Michelle Allen Rhinehimer, please let me understand your complaint and review can you tell me what time of the day you made your visit to Timber Charlie's? A very strong point of view as well.

On our way back from a side trip we stopped at Charlie's for an early dinner. Waited nearly 10 minutes to get a menu and waited a total of 45 minutes to receive our pasties. Pasties were burned around the edges and tasted/looked like they used a meat loaf for the meat. Was not impressed on this stop nor on... More

We visited in the off season and so were seated and fed quickly. I liked that you could order staples of mexican, italian, american foods--all the basics. The food was good, portions were mid-sized, but nothing exceptional--this is a standard fare, iceberg lettuce sort of place. Our server was very friendly and helpful, but I'm pretty sure I ordered a... More
