This year we're retired and we stayed in the Newberry area (Curtis) all summer. We usually look for a fish fry on Friday's in the Newberry area. We're kind of picky, we want fried Whitefish. In June we learned that Timber Charlies has a Friday Special. Whitefish, choice of potato, soup or salad. When we tried the whitefish special it... More

Thank you for your review of our home. Thank you also for your continuing support as well. Our fish fry is very popular and often we sell out early. Your advise as to selecting times away from peak eating times is a good idea when you can. The U.P is a very special place in summer and winter and explodes... More

The service was very friendly and efficient. The food lacked flavor, very bland and I suspect NOT very fresh. Prices are very reasonable.

I had high hopes due to the high rating but there was nothing exciting about this place for me. The portion was small, the prices were higher than I thought they should be. It was very busy though. I would not stop here again. The waitress was nice.

We had just finished a 3+ canoe trip on the Tahquamenon River and we were hungry! We were hoping to eat and then visit Oswald's Bear Ranch. It was about 3:00 p.m. and the restaurant had some customers, but was in between lunch and dinner. However, once we placed our order, it took about 50 minutes for our food to... More

Went on a Saturday night. Food was average nothing special. Kitchen seemed backed up. Our server was pretty good. She was busy but at least gave us drink refills. She couldn't seem to recommend a cocktail so I just had soda pop instead. I had the the Two Hearted Roast Beef Sandwich with onion rings. The Sandwich wasn't that great... More
