We ate here with friends while on a drive through the UP. Wondered what it would be like as Newberry is a very small town and the cafe is kind of woodsy. The meals were very good, not flash, but good solid US country fare. We would happily eat here again. Our waitress was friendly and helpful.

This used to be one of the best eating places in the EUP. It has gone downhill. The food was average at best. Good, friendly service, but not the big portions and good cooking that it used to be.

We were passing through on our way to the Keweenaw and grabbed lunch at Timber Charlies. My wife and I both started out with a cup of their homemade chicken noodle soup and holy cow was it delicious. I had the Youper Pot Roast and my wife had the taco salad. I absolutely loved my meal and my wife enjoyed... More

Went with my parents and husband. All of us absolutely loved everything we got which ranged from burgers to fish baskets. And our waitress was amazing! Would certainly return our next trip to Newberry.

I read the other ratings and thought this was going to be very good. Not quite. Not bad either but not as wonderful as others have rated. My daughter had the nachos which looked very good and very very large. She hardly made a dent in the meal. I had the Waygu steak. Never heard of this type of steak.... More

Gravesky, thank you for the review. I am pleased your daughter enjoyed the Nacho's! I would like to expand on the Colette (Wagyu) that you ordered. After reviewing your order and the line cook preparing your steak i can with certainty that it was incorrectly prepared and the person in no longer employed with our company. My apologies for not...

The Burger was good, nice Kaiser bun. Homemade chips served with it, the French onion soup would of been good but they used processed swiss cheese on it, what a way to kill the favor, the little amount of swiss cheese you need for that using real cheese would of been a plus. Process was ok for the burger.

We were hungry after driving around all day. We were staying near Newberry, so we stopped at Timber Charlie's for supper. I had roast beef, which I had them turn into a hot roast beef sandwich with French fries, all smothered in beefy gravy. This is one of my favorite guilty pleasure meals, and it was pretty darned good. We... More

I enjoyed a sandwich which was tasty and good flavor, the price was maybe a little high but overall I would go back to Timber Charlies the next time I travel to Newberry. The restaurant was clean, and the staff was very pleasant.
