We have lunch or dinner here often. Over the years all aspects of this restaurant continued to improve. The menu is diverse and Chef Scot is hands on with the kitchen. The service also improves---being a seasonal business it can be a challenge! There are two dining areas indoors--one is more casual. There is also a outdoor patio for dining.... More

I've been coming to this restaurant for years! Breakfast, lunch, or dinner, the food is delicious. It is the best restaurant in the small town of Cuchara. Service is great and everyone is super friendly. Their hours are different during off season so be sure to call beforehand to make reservations. I also like how they feature artwork by local...

Little town with fine dining, perfect dinner spot! We ate here a couple times, tried a few items and loved every one of them, including the home made ice cream. Mushroom appetizer yum! Also the Elk burger and meat sandwiches. Happy they were open for us.

We enjoyed a great meal with family during our visit in early July 2016, and Timbers was the best its been in a long time (8 years). The menu is a little different this summer and is suited for the envirnonment in Cuchara. Our table ordered the Summer Seafood pasta and ribeye and the taste, presentation and temperture was excellent.... More

Thank you for your review. I just wanted to clarify that, while Dog Bar and Grill and Cuchara Inn are under new ownership this year, The Timbers remains under the same ownership that it has had since late 2009. Our chef, management, and furnishings remain the same as well. We're glad that you feel we are continuing to improve, and... More

We had the most incredible, special experience of having our wedding rehearsal dinner at the Timbers! It could not have been more perfect. Owner Scott is an amazing chef, and one of the nicest people you will ever meet. We dined at the Timbers several times prior to the event to solidify our menu. Honestly, everything we ate was delicious!... More
