Country atmosphere, friendly staff, smiling faces and excellent food. I don't usually comment on the taste of the food because everyone is different. I will say my husband and I liked what we had. The service is what stood out. The server was super friendly...without going overboard. She kept our table cleared as we finished appetizers and kept our drinks full, always with a smile. She offered other menu items, like I am sure she was trained to do, but was never pushy about it. We were very happy with our visit.More

This was our first trip to Timberloft Restaurant even though we only live a short distance away. It was excellent. We both got the hand-pulled pork with two sides. The pork was tender and cooked to perfection. We also got the chips, quest, and pico...as an appetizer and the New York Style Cheesecake with caramel sauce for dessert. They were both wonderful as well. Misty was our server and she was wonderful. Very pleasant and attentive. We would recommend Timberloft to anyone.More

Was traveling thru on way to Nashville. Located about 300 yards off the interstate. The staff was excellent and the food even better. We had the fried pepper cheese cubes as an app and they were incredible. I ordered the brisket tacos came with 3...tacos, some tortilla chips with queso. The brisket was very tender and flavorful. And the queso I couldnt stop eating. Another in my party had the ribeye ordered medium and it came out looking perfect. The smoky cream corn side dish was to die for. Our waiter Cole was very attentive to our needs and really courteous. Also had some nice live acoustic music going. Overall a really good experience and will def be trying again when passing by to try other things on the menu.More

Cole was our server and he was excellent, food was delicious as were our drinks from the bar. Little bit of a wait but worth it. Right off the Intersate and plenty of parking

Timberloft Restaurant never disappoints! We always try to stop to eat anytime we find ourselves on I-40 near the Gordonsville/Carthage exit. Two weeks ago, we were camping at Long Branch Campground in Silver Point TN and decided to drive approximately 20 minutes to Timberloft for...lunch. I had the dry rub smoked chicken wings with a side salad and my husband had a brisket sandwich. My wings were so good! I've been craving them ever since. My husband really enjoyed his brisket too. Our server Rhiannon was so friendly and made our visit very enjoyable. Try this restaurant. You won't be disappointed!More

Misty was an excellent server and the food was tremendous. I got the fried halibut tacos, my stepdad got the brisket, a couple we were with got wings and a chicken salad, and my husband got the smoked prime rib. He hasn’t stopped telling people...about the smoked prime rib since we went! Everyone was very satisfied and Misty was right on point. Highly recommended! 5 Stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ !!! -ErinMore

I went to eat one evening and there was about a 10 minute wait but it was very much so worry it!! I sat at the Bar and Kayla was absolutely amazing. I had never been here before and she helped me decide what to...try by asking what I liked. I decided on the Hawaiian Cowboy I believe it was called. It was great and just as amazing as she described it to me. While looking at the menu it all looked amazing and I wanted to order one of everything. I decided to go with the Big 3 (A half slab of hickory smoked ribs, 4oz slow smoked pork and 4oz brisket and 2 sides, I got bacon macaroni and cheese and baked beans). Next thing I know Mr. Kevin (one of the owners) comes from the kitchen with my order and spoke with me a few moments before replying me to enjoy my meal before heading back into the kitchen. I'm sorry but I love seeing owners actively running their business. The pork was juicy and tender and just melted in your mouth with that amazing smoky flavor. The brisket I didn't even need a knives for. It was the most tender brisket I've every put in my mouth. The ribs were there same was too. Tender, juicy and fall off the bone delicious with that smoky flavor in every bite. The bake beans and bacon macaroni and cheese were equally just as amazing. While I was enjoying each bite the Kitchen Manager, Sam, came around to check in to see how everyone was enjoying their meals. He speed me if I had been there before and thanked me to coming out to dine with all of them tonight. Kayla did an amazing job and then Mr. Kevin came back around to check on my experience that night. I left there with my supper for the next night extremely impressed with my dining experience there. I will return for sure every time I can!More

While exploring our new home state today, we stopped for a late lunch at Timberloft, right off the highway. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and sat at a table inside as the patio was full. We were promptly met by our server, MILLIE....Throughout our visit, Millie was so helpful and she represents Timberloft well with her cheery countenance. We ordered the house Margaritas and they were delivered promptly ...refreshing and not full of overwhelming sour mix. Much needed after hours of driving! Since moving to TN, we have searched for good brisket. It seems pork is the bbq meat of choice here, but we are brisket fans. Happily, brisket was on the menu. It was lovely. Served on a mini sheet pan, we had 4 thick slices of suuculent brisket with a perfect pink smoke ring and (thankfully) some fat one edge. With housemade pickled onions & pickles, along with 2 sides ... we were so happy with our impromptu stop! Our new home is less than an hour away and we WILL be back and hope to see Millie's smiling face again.More

While traveling through Tennessee, we were looking for a local restaurant for lunch. We found the Timberloft Restaurant on our NextExit app, and decided to try it. As we pulled into the parking lot, we saw their meat smokers cooking outside. The place was so...nice and clean, and the staff was very friendly and helpful with our orders. Everything we ordered was WONDERFUL, especially the BBQ!!! So glad we stopped there to eat, and will definitely be back when we are in the area!More
