People frequent chains because the quality of the food and the style/menu choices are consistant across settings. This is true for the Timer Lodge Steakhouse. We had lunch on a Saturday and the menu provided a good selection of entrees, sandwiches, salads and soups. There were also some daily specials. My husband had the sirloin steak, a bit chewy but...

We found this great restaurant out in the middle of nowhere (no offense to small towns). We were very surprised at the service, the food, everything was just fantastic. We hit it at happy hour, so everything cost a bit less. Shared an appetizer. My husband said the best rack of ribs he'd ever had. I wasn't that hungry, so... More

So disgusted in this place. Overpriced food, rude waitresses, horrible management, we had issue with our meak and laura the manager was so rude and didnt care. Will never allow my family to eat there unless they get rid of all managers and sum waitresses. What a horrible experience. Plus way over priced and servers are greedy. Did not see... More

The salad plates were dirty and there was a hair hidden under my loaded baked potato. Something gross in my hot tea cup. I also had the coconut shrimp witch had a lovely brown line inside. The service was the only good thing. I won't be going back.

When driving along I-35 we like to stop here if we need a meal. Their burgers are good and if you can't cook a burger, you can't cook anything. The service is usually decent but often you feel like you are disturbing them just by arriving. Sorry to the few staff that still happen to care. Don't sit next to... More

Took my hubby here to surprise him for anniversary dinner, thought it would be a safe bet to get some good steak, wrong. The staff was friendly and helpful, soup and cheese balls were great. We both ordered sirloin and cocunut shrimp which was nothing special. Not worth the money or the hour drive for us. We were disappointed with... More
