We were seated immediately, the menus were dirty and well used, the hostess handed my minor children alcohol menus. Our server never came to our table, we ended up walking out after waiting 15 minutes. The table seated after us had beverages when we passed...them on the way out the door.. Very disappointed.More

My husband and I decided to go there for our anniversary dinner and were not disappointed. Neither of us had been there before. I was surprised that the servers were very casually dressed, considering the prices for the entrees. I would have thought that, instead...of wearing sports clothes they would have been dressed similar to the norm for a fine restaurant. Meghan was our server and she was friendly, capable and attentive. I had the half rack of St Louis ribs, which may have been the best I have ever eaten. My husband had the salmon and said that it was very good. The side salads were a step above the usual side salad, and were accompanied by warm rolls. My hot tea was brought without the tea bag already in it (which I prefer), and a pot of extra hot water accompanied it, which was nice, so that I didn't have to request more hot water. It was an incredible amount of food for each entre'. the only complaint that I have about my dinner was that the asparagus was fibrous for over two inches on one end, and should have been better trimmed before cooking it.More

All I can say is that this experience was absolutely PERFECT! My wife and I were looking for a “non-corporate” steak house that boasted good Prime Rib. Timber Lodge was suggested by a close friend. It was not close to where we live but an...easy 45 minute drive got us there with no problems. When we entered the restaurant we were immediately greeted by a friendly hostess. The rustic decor was gorgeous! As we looked around we saw that the dining room was literally packed! Two seats were open at the bar if we chose not to wait the 15 minutes for a table. Easy decision! Bar it is! Win number one! We had no idea that that decision would set us up for an incredible experience! We had not even sat in our seats and we were welcomed by the bartender/server, Angela. Win number two! What a professional! Not only was her service impeccable, she was friendly and had a fantastic sense of humor. I wish I knew the names of the other bartenders and staff that took time to make sure my wife and I were good. Every person that took care of us seemed to be just as enthusiastic about their job. That really impressed us, especially since the service industry has taken such a brutal hit post Covid. Now, the food! Win number three! I ordered a custom size prime rib ( they offer 12 and 14 ounce pieces but also allow you to order up or down depending on your appetite. All I can say is that I will never go anywhere else for prime rib! Perfect! My wife ordered the daily special of petite filets with scallops. Her steak was perfectly cooked and the scallops were phenomenal! The steak was so tender she cut it with her fork! The sides were delicious and fresh (Brussels sprouts, asparagus, steak fries). I could go on and on about this place but I will shorten my rambling by saying that the Timber Lodge and Angela have my wife and I an awesome dinner experience and a perfect date night!! Thank you Angela and Timber Lodge! See you again soon!More

Went to Timber Lodge for dinner with 17 co-workers. What a wonderful time. Our servers were friendly and kept up with our many requests. We started with a variety of appetizers which were all very good. I like the lodge potatoes the best. Then came...the french onion soup and it was one of the best i've had. Everyone got steak, lobster, crab legs etc and not one person complained. The serving sizes were big so there were many to go boxes being filled. Not to mention the sizes of their cakes for dessert. One piece could serve an entire table, The creme brulee was perfect and hit the spot after such a good meal. However I am glad that I didn't have to flip the bill because the prices are on the higher side.More

Megan is the best server we have, absolutely amazing she’s been here the longest and Knows everything about the restaurant. Please ask for her whenever you come in

Reviewed November 13, 2021 via mobile

The food wasn’t bad. The service was terrible. If Megan is your server, ask for someone else. We felt very ignored as attention was given to the table next to us, where they were drinking a lot. The only way to flag Megan down was...when she went over there. It's ok. It's her tip. My dining partner is a very generous tipper and that won't be necessary tonight. What a difference the service makes. We had to ask for water refills, and the bread basket we saw on other tables. I was told because we hadn't ordered salads, our bread would come with the entree. Huh? Who wants it then? But she did bring it once we asked. Portions are large. My friend’s scrod dish was quite average. He wasn’t thrilled, but loved the asparagus. I had the Lake Walleye, which was huge and covered the length of the plate. There were veggies and rice on the plate, so lots to take home. However the “colossal” baked potato that is ordered as a side, after seeing the world’s largest baked potato on another table, was extremely ordinary and in no way “colossal.” The food was ok, but not worth the high prices. $10.99 for a bowl of French onion soup? $14.99 for lobster bisque or clam chowder? $36.99 for ribs? And $80 for a 1 LB. lobster tail? The prices were over-the-top, with food and service not matching up. Megan kept going over to the other table. Hello? Took long to get the check and no, we certainly didn’t want anything else.More

We were visiting relatives in Ohio, and happened upon Timber Lodge. It specializes in steak and has a bit of everything. Although at first glance, it seems a bit pricey, the volume of food presented makes up for that! The meals were delicious. My husband...had an appetizer of spare ribs that could have easily fed two people. Seafood mac and cheese - oh my! I hope you enjoy leftovers - you will be grabbing a to-go box! Our waitress Laura has been with the company for decades and was knowledgeable, friendly, and as excited as a new hire to make our meal the best it could be. I have food allergies, and Timber Lodge was happy to accommodate. I highly recommend this restaurant should your travels take you to this lovely part of Ohio.More

The Timber Lodge was so comfortable, with it's rustic interior. But make no mistake, the service and food is that of which you would find in Cleveland's finest restaurants. Tables comfortably separated to make you feel safe, great wine list and top class beef awaited...us on the menu. My prime rib was cooked to perfection with a side of pasta that was yummy.

We recently had a family dinner at The Timber Lodge to celebrate a birthday. We had a very nice evening. The service was great and the food was good. However, when the bill arrived we were shocked by the price of an entree. A seafood...special was offered at market price. Our waitress did not quote the price. We expected a pricey dish, but were floored to see a $113 price tag on a medium lobster tail and 2 crab legs. (2 sides come with entrees) We have eaten at many restaurants here and abroad, and NEVER seen such a price!! We politely expressed our shock to our server and later my husband talked with the manager privately. Basically the response was, it is what is, sorry. Fortunately, we are blessed to be able to absorb a mistake like that. Many would not be so lucky. Few would pay that price, which I'm sure is why the cost is not volunteered. Diners beware!!! It will be a while before we return as that experience left a bad taste in our mouth.More
