“Good Service and Steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Had a stop over steak meal during travels through Minnesota. Restaurant was clean and service was hospitable and attentive. Steak was done correctly the first time and served hot with fresh sides. Theming and ambiance had a corporate chain feel to it, but overall pleasurable dining experience.

“out of state company visiting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We liked our meals, but the potatoes weren't done so they had to go back. The waitress was very friendly so she made the wait go by pleasently.

“Go here for appetizers.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Timberlodge is actually one of my favorite places to go in Owatonna. BUT theres a secret. To get food served hot, eat at the bar. Drinks, appetizers, French Onion soup and salad. At the bar. Anything beyond that may be disappointing.

“Great food - poor service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

Just in town for business so did a little reasearch for a great steak and found Timber Lodge. Food was very good but the service was poor. It was a Friday night but they weren't that packed in there - and we still waited 15 minutes for a seat -no problem, sat at the bar to wait. Ordered salad with steak, waitress brought me soup, ordered mushrooms and onions on the side of my steak and did not get those. Seating was a little bright for a Friday night - thought it should be a little darker for a more intimate setting, especially with the log theme. All in all, good food, well cooked steak, would probably visit again if we were craving steak as that seemed to be the "spot" for steak in the area. But not impressive enough to go out of our way.

“Always good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Their lunches are very generous and delicious. My favorite dinner is the Battered Walleye - mouthwatering. They have a private room with a fireplace that can be used for meetings, receptions.
