“Value for my money was not there”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

Had dinner last night and was suprised when I got the bill for the $15.99 Special turned out to be $21.99 which I could have overlooked except the the 5 oz filet was in 2 pieces and not done to medium and the 4 scallops were very small. The shrimp cocktail of 5 shrimp was $11.99. Disappointed!!

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

This restaurant was formerly Steve's Dakota Grill, with the same owner, staff and chef. I think that it is even better than before! The menu is basically the same but with better specials of the day, a larger selection of entrees and sandwiches. My husband and I both got the prime rib....it was melt in your mouth, juicy and delicious. The wait staff is courteous, friendly and efficient. The decor looks like someplace you would find at a mountain resort, rustic yet classy. In the cool weather they have a wood burning fireplace going to give it more ambiance.

“Thank Goodness it's Still (Mostly) the Same!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

Apparently the proprietor's had a decision to make: Renew their Steve's Dakota Franchise or go it alone. They chose the latter and Timberlodge was born nearly giving us Steve's fans a coronary!
The menu is basically unchanged except for a few name changes and the staff appears to be intact too!
Timberlodge has the best Ribeye I've ever eaten!
The biggest downside to Timberlodge can be the extensive wait time since they do not take reservations. It's usually worth it though!

“New name, same good meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

Timber Lodge used to be called Steve's Dakota Grill. Before that it was called The Pine Tree. We have always enjoyed a steak dinner there. Its still a fun place to get a great steak. We just had a steak and a prime rib. Both were very good. Laura took very good care of us. Give it a try.
