Good food even during the pandemic. We took an unplanned trip to Guerneville last weekend and after a day of sun and fun poolside at one of the local resorts we were famished. We were pleasantly surprised that the Timberline was open during this pandemic....The food was good and the service was great. Staff was super friendly and everyone was wearing masks. We would definitely stop by again.More

Tonight we visited this restaurant to take advantage of restaurant week and were treated to not only a fabulous meal, but friendly service from Larry who waited on us and treated us like old friends. The food was delicious and the portions generous. We especially...loved the mushroom soup and Napa cabbage salad— the mashed potatoes were to die for! I have never seen a larger prime rib on a dinner plate, and the pork chops were finger- licking good. We loved the friendly conversation with Larry and warm ambiance in spite of the fact that the place is huge. We definitely will be back😁More

Homemade soup, appetizers and dessert. Everything was delicious! We ordered New York steak. Couldn’t believe how big the steak was, cooked perfectly. The service was very friendly. Would recommend this restaurant!

The food is advertised as sourced locally. My fish and chips were probably sourced at the Safeway across the street.

Friends and I were visiting the area. It was relatively late on a Sunday evening and, after a few misses elsewhere (places were closed, fully booked, etc.), we headed to Timberline for dinner. The waiter could not have been nicer--super-talkative guy and full of local...history. The kitchen was a little disorganized that night, so we had a few glitches, but nothing major and our waiter was very apologetic. He made the evening with his friendliness. It was a menu of American comfort-food classics: hamburgers, chicken-fried chicken, meatloaf, steak, etc. Don't come here looking for light California cuisine! Portion sizes are huge and, as such, the restaurant is a good value; we didn't take any home, since we were traveling the next day, but you certainly could. Food was tasty. The steak was enormous, served with fries and vegetables. The meatloaf was also a big portion; its texture had variability, instead of all being the same, which made it kind of interesting. Mashed potatoes soaked up the gravy. Eggplant parm was what you'd expect, with lots of cheese. Definitely not a healthy meal, and I wouldn't call these 'elevated' classics with updated flavor of presentation or anything, but it was definitely solid, country-like cooking, delivered with a smile. Atmosphere isn't much. Rustic kind of building with a 1970s sort of feel to it. But everything was clean and comfortable and the atmosphere was a match for the food and warm, inviting service.More

It was all here except the relish tray. Large portion comfort food, a meatloaf special, Packers game on the TV and some old fashioned cocktails to boot. Set amongst the redwoods next to a golf club.

A group of 11 of us had a reservation to celebrate a bachelorette and the service was wonderful! When we arrived the table was ready for our large group, we were quickly greeted and had drinks ordered. Food came out warm, timely and delicious. We...were even offered a champagne toast as our dinner came to an end! Views are also quite pretty :)More

We had dinner here on a Friday, when ribeye steak was the 'special'. My son and I ordered this. It was tasty; medium turned out to be on the rare side; and enormous. I could eat only half. My wife had the chicken fried chicken....Again very tasty, but she could only manage a small portion. How many chickens can they have put into it? The waitress cheerfully told us that nobody ever finishes it. Hooray for doggy boxes. The atmosphere of Timberline is fun - a sort of large log cabin, something of a frontier experience.More

Timberline has been a few different places over years, but I think we finally found a hit. The food is comfort with a touch of southern. The food was traditional, but well prepared. It’s not perfect, but better than average. The menu is small but...has some food favorites. They have locally made pie for dessert. I personally hated the pie. Timberline has a full bar. The service was good. But at times she was getting overwhelmed and thus service slowed. The young bus boy was cute and attentive. The cabin decor fits with the area. Parking is available in front of on the street.More

We ate here in July and had a wonderful meal. The pork chop was all that others said it was and the veg dish of eggplant was great. Service was pleasant and the owner chatted with us. So, we took another couple with us when...we returned earlier this month, August. Sorry to say the meal was a disaster. The roasted eggplant entrée was burned to a crisp and very chewy, and the hot turkey sandwiches tasted like they had been in the freezer for a loooooong time. Maybe it was an off night because it was a Monday. Will give them another shot next month and go on a weekend. Nice people; lovely service; no problems there.More
