Timber Charlies is filled with all the local character you would expect from an Upper Peninsula restaurant. Nothing fancy but, the beer is cold, the food is amazing, the place is a bit dated but, very clean and the service was friendly and quick. There is a McDonalds in the area and a Pizza Hut but, why eat someplace like... More

Classic "hole-in-the-wall", service was great, they had a very friendly staff. The smoked chicken was incredible. As good as my steak sandwich was - get the chicken. Very reasonable prices. And by the way, they said Pat was cooking that night. Kudos!!!

I had the Pasty which was great...couldn't leave the UP without one. It had a light crust and lots of meat...a real Pasty with rutabaga. Everything that everyone else had was top notch. Ribs, chicken and wraps were good portions and delicious.

Food is good. Beer is cold. They have no Keno. Waitstaff kinda seem like they were rushed to help you. Had to ask for refills and they weren't busy.

Thank you for choosing Timber Charlie's Family Restaurant of Newberry MI. As a historical building here in Newberry, Built in 1887, reopened in 1987 as Timber Charlie's restaurant the building has a great deal of tails to tell. We are not a bar even though our 14 seat mahogany historical bar that still exist. Keno is not something that 99%... More

Our party had the Whitefish Po-Boy, Roast Beef plate, Sage good and service was OK. Even though the waitress didn't ask about our desire for dessert, I asked what was available, thinking they might be homemade, and was told coconut cream pie, apple pie, and a cheesecake. Three of us love coconut cream pie and ordered that and the other... More

While we have eaten here on several occasions, we selected Timber Charlie's to prepare our main course for our last minute wedding reception (we had 2 weeks to plan). The executive chef, Ray, said that he would prepare our 18 pound prime rib for us. The prime rib was cooked to Chef Ray's perfection. Tender and flavorful, the meat was... More

We decided to try the all you can eat Friday night fish fry. It was exceptional. The food was great and the service was top notch. Those girls ran their tushes off and were super pleasant.
