Your local watering hole with a variety of menu choices. The staff was quite knowledgeable of gluten free dining and had many suggestions. Good service and decent food at reasonable prices.

Stopped here for supper on vacation. Nothing fancy, seemed to be quite a few locals. Service was great, food was average. In our group we had BBQ ribs (just okay), smoked chicken (great), whitefish basket (good), soft tacos (average, but large portion).

We spent the day sightseeing in the are and decided we were hungry! Newberry doesn't have much for restaurants but there was Timber Charlie's sitting on the corner. It was great! It was so nice to sit down and be waited on by smiling faces! There was a wonderful selection to choose from. We had the greatest meal of wings,... More

We had lunch here and there was something on the menu for everyone! Everyone in our party of five loved their meal, and the two people who got hamburgers stated they were the best burgers that they've had in a long time. Friendly and attentive staff, also.

We stayed at a wonderful B & B and they recommended this restaurant. I had the Yooper Fish Dream and it was good. I was hoping for fish that wasn't fried, but that wasn't to be. The wait staff were great and we even heard about the ghost!

I can here on business with some local clients and the food was another UP favorite. I tried the Yooper Pot roast which was succulent with every bite. The French Onion Soup was in a league of its own

Our family ate lunch at this establishment on our trip through the UP and the food was truly excellent. My wife had the French Onion soup and I had the grilled chicken sandwich whlch was huge and superbly seasoned. My daughter had a BLT which was also excellent.
