“Family enjoyed it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Went here with the family. The place doesn't look like much from the outside, typical restaurant. Inside, there is typical "up north" decorations, logging antiques, and other similar antiques on the walls. There was a nice placemat with local history on it, which helped pass the long time between visits from our waitress. I can't imagine what the place would be like if it was busy. The food was good for everyone except me. I ordered crosscut chicken, which aside from the cheese and mushrooms was a failure. Other members had burgers, which were really large and flavorful. We may visit again, if only for the burgers or sandwiches.

“Meat, Meat and more Meat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

What took me so long to try The Timbers??? That is what I was asking myself after our first visit.

We own property just south of Lake Mitchell and are up in the area all fall hunting and camping. I drove past this place forever always noting that it had a lot of cars and saying "I need to try that place sometime"

Should have looked at Trip Advisor sooner....this has become our "Go To" place when we want MEAT!

Prime Rib, Steaks, Ribs, Pork Chops...all very good. Not cheap, not crazy expensive. Large portions.

If you want MEAT in a casual "up north" atmosphere and are near Cadillac go here.

It can be busy...but that is because it is popular because people that have actually tried it know it is good.

Wish I had tried it sooner LOL

“Meh”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Portions were large, server was incredibly nice and accomodating (older lady), but food was forgettable except for the weird sweetness of some of it (chili, cole slaw). Meh

“Great food, portions and good service too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Went on a little trip to Cadillac for a couple nights and ended up eating dinner here two nights in a row! First night, had the prime rib and girlfriend had oak barrel pork tenderloin. Prime rib was a real good cut and flavorful. (Fries are great too). Pork tenderloin portion was HUGE (enough for 2 people) and was very good. The bourbon sauce they use is great. Waitress was attentive and friendly. Come to really like the local restaurants over chains and this is a good example of why. The menu is large. The 2nd night, we had a prime rib pizza and a chicken dish with portobello mushrooms. The pizza was great and the chicken dish was good too. The chicken portion wasn't as much as the pork tenderloin the night before. It's not often that I pay full price for meals and come away feeling good about it, but I did here :)
Whenever I'm in Cadillac again, I'll be sure to go to Timbers for a good meal!
