Ate here last night. Ordered a burger with bacon...didn't get the bacon. Said they'd take the cost of added bacon off the bill...that didn't happen. Also had coffee. Had to finally ask for a refill and when they brought it, it was cold. I've NEVER had such poor service. Do yourself a favor and save some money.....don't eat there!

I have never had such horrible service and horrible food! We drove over 30 minutes to wait over 30 minutes for our order to be taken. During that time our drinks were not refilled. The waitress forgot 2 sides we ordered. Over an hour after ordering, our steak was completely over done. We ordered medium rare and the steak was... More

My husband, son, and I ate lunch here today. I had never eaten at a Timber Lodge Steakhouse before, and to be honest I wasn't expecting much from a chain, especially a chain steakhouse. We arrived at opening, and were seated after a very short wait. The waiting area is cute with a northwoods decor. I liked the unique touch... More

The food was pretty good although my wifes filet was a bit chewy. The walleye was good and the baked potato was done just right. Pass on the house wine and pick one from the wine list. The prices are moderate and the wine is better. Bruschette was good but it could have used more basil and the bread slices... More

Timber Lodge Steakhouse is hit and miss. Sometimes you go and the food is very good but it seems like more often lately it is sub par. We love their cheese curds but sometimes they just serve you a bunch of crumbs and/or the cheese has oozed out of the breading. There is no sense talking to anyone about it... More

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
