Quiet, scenic, nice.
My wife and I went here over a holiday weekend and were one of about four couples plus a family in the large dining room. The view over to Arbor Lodge was very scenic and is probably best in the fall with all the leaves changing color. Although the food wasn't as freshly prepared, it was still better than most buffets. The buffet had a baby lettuce salad, a variety of cheeses and crackers, cold green bean salad, raw vegetables and dip, steamed vegetables, homemade mac and cheese, pork tenderloin in a mustard mushroom sauce and very good walleye. A table of desserts with cheesecake, pie and cakes was also included. I thought walleye was the best item and I had my fill. A vibrant hot spot it is not but a nice relaxing meal can be had here.

The only problem we had was
The only problem we had was my mother ordered hot chocolate & they brought a hot drink in a stemmed water glass. Otherwise, it was great.

Exellent meal; beautiful setting
We were only in Nebraska City for one night and the options for dinner at a non-chain restaurant looked meager. The Timber Dining Room was an excellent choice. Interesting menu and reasonably priced. Yes, it's more expensive than someplace like Olive Garden, but the food is fresh, local, and served in spacious and elegant setting.

It was not busy at all and the buffet food was very good, including dessert. The atmosphere was very easy going, we were not rushed and really enjoyed the time.
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Every year, at about this time, my wife and I travel 2 hours to make our annual pilgrimage to dine at the Timber Dining Room. The food is excellent as well as the atmosphere. We have never left disappointed! The Lied Lodge and surrounding park provide an excellent opportunities for touring either before or after the meal.

A Place To Look Forward To!
My mom and I come every Father's Day weekend and look forward to it all year. What a fabulous and beautiful place you have. The food presentation is eye-appealing and the labels are very nice to have. The atmosphere is wonderful and relaxing. Loved the piano music. Our waitress was very attentive. Thank you.

A great dining experience!
Great place to meet friends for dinner. The fish dishes are always good and my steak was tender, precisely grilled and tasted great. I would recommend this place to everyone. From to timber framing, live music and great views this is a must experience.

The walleye with wild rice
The walleye with wild rice and asparagus was absolutely delicious! Our server was very helpful, professional and kind.

Usually a wonderful place to dine
With a perfect weather day, we invited our friends from Omaha to join us at the Lied Lodge. We have dined there many times, and the food was wonderful. Today we dined outside to enjoy the view, weather and our friends first time there. The lunch menu had many choices, including the buffet. Three of us ordered off the menu and one had the buffet. All meals were okay, but not great. We will come back for dinner inside next time. We love the inside ambience and evening menu. The Lied Lodge is beautiful place not to come back to.

Timber Dining Room Lied Lodge
We enjoyed our Sunday Brunch in the Timber Dining Room at the Lied Lodge. Much of the food was rather heavy for my taste--lots of biscuits and gravy, bacon, ham, and cheese dishes, although my husband really enjoyed the fare. I would like to have seen more salads and fresh fruit. I had a fixed-to-order veggie omelet that was very tasty. My light strawberry cake was delicious and my hubby's homemade apple pie was superb.
The staff was friendly and the service was very good. The positive atmosphere of this lodge is wonderful and we enjoyed the piano player. We will definitely return.

Lied Lodge always a local favorite
Always a great time spent at the Sunday Brunch. Great variety of food selections. The service is spot on.

Follow us to the Lied
Our server Branden was outstanding and met our many special requests quickly and happily. He was well spoken and everyone at the table could hear him clearly. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and could answer most questions or found out answers from the chef. He even took pictures for us as this was a special family event. Both those who chose the buffet or ordered off the menu were extremely happy with our meals. Two people had seafood dishes and were very happy. The wine was also very good and reasonably priced. We enjoyed the piano playing during diner and the view of Arbor Lodge across the forested valley. Though we live 40 miles away this is our second visit and we will be back.

Best kept secret in midwest!
The Timber Dining Room at Lied Lodge & Conference Center in Nebreask City is the best kept secret in the midwest! Food excellent. Service great! Kid friendly...but positioned not to interfer with adult conversation. Great wine. Great view from inside or out. What else is ther to say?
8/9/2013 5:00:00 PM
We enjoyed our meal very much! I was plesantly surprised at the options that we had to chose from on the menu and the buffet. The food was fresh and tasted wonderful. The coffee was one of the best blends I have ever had in a resturant. Not bitter nor was it strong. Just rite.

great weekend get away. beautiful setting great service everyone very helpful
8/16/2013 5:00:00 PM
My wife and I decided to eat here the other morning and it was by far the best dining experience in Nebraska City, or southeast Nebraska for that matter. The food is amazing, the service is top notch, and the view is hard to beat. We were extremely glad we visited the Lied Lodge.

A Great place for the celebration
A Great place for the celebration of my birthday. We ate outside on the patio with a fabulous view and lots of wildlife to watch.

Great Lunch/Breakfast Buffet Lacks
Lunch was great, the corn chowder was beyond belief, but the breakfast buffet Sunday morning was lacking. The potatoes were cold, the pastries were minimal and fair at best. The sausage was very good and mild like some I have had in Austria. However, if you are looking for good, old-fashioned, southern style biscuits with sausage gravy, you will be very disappointed. The gravy was sweet which was weird and there was no sausage in it at all. More like sweet milk gravy yuk. I would recommend waiting until the Sunday brunch.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Chicken Oscar was the best chicken I've ever had. My husband said the steak was the best he's ever had. We will definitely be back!

My family and I ate at the Lodge Saturday buffet, and it was wonderful. The food was so good! The prime rib was especially notable that night, so tender and cooked to perfection!

Apple Jack Festival at Lied
We are new to Nebraska and enjoy venturing into the states memorable places and festivities. The Lied Lodge is a great place for families and couple. Abundant space and beautiful views. The outdoor seating is great for a locally produced glass of wine. The menu and buffet are both well tended. The Lounge, attached to the restaurant is bar like but quiet with an easy going feel. Relaxed yet refined. We are disney travelers. This lodge reminded us of Animal Kingdom Lodge at WDW, with less characters and more apples! All in all, a great dining experience for ourselves and our 3 children (8,5,4). We will be back again next year. And just to note...even though 80,000 people showed up for the festival we had all the room in the world! :)

Good food, great service
Our party of four enjoyed Sunday morning brunch. The food was excellent, except we wish the potatoes weren't mixed with peppers. Omelets made-to-order were delicious. Our server was excellent. We requested a table by the window with our reservation, and we were happy to when we were seated by the window with a spectacular view. My husband's loves the scones. We'll be back!

We loved our evening meal
We loved our evening meal buffet. The next morning we got seated next to some gentlemen having a loud business meeting. Not so fun.

Great Food With A View
We take my parents to the Timber Dining Room every fall for their Sunday brunch. It's a beautiful drive from Omaha to Nebraska City, and the dining room is relaxing and comfortable. We always enjoy the brunch with its nice combination of breakfast and dinner foods. This year, the desserts were served in smaller portions than previously, and that encouraged us to sample more of them. We had reservations and did not have to wait to be seated, and our server was very attentive.

The meal was wonderful! We
The meal was wonderful! We enjoyed our whole dining experience. It was after our meal. It was our mother's 85th birthday and we sat outside the restaurant to open gifts. You had pots with lightbulbs in them on the floor. My 20 month old grandson burned his hand on one of the lightbulbs. These should not be on the floor where families are welcome. He has been to the doctor twice. He has huge blisters where his hand was burned. We are praying the sores will not get infected. I suggest these be removed or something put on the top of them to prevent this from happening. This really put a damper on our party.

We've been coming to Nebraska
We've been coming to Nebraska City annually for apples and pumpkins but this was the first time we actually stayed to eat! Loved the lodge! The food was really good, service was tremendous (so pleasant!) and the views very nice!! Will be back again next year if not sooner!!

Grand Thanksgiving Buffett
Ate twice at the Timber Dining room. Thanksgiving buffet was good overall but the turkey was dry and the rest of the entree line was average (kudos for the appetizer/salads/desserts tho). Friday buffet was good but one piece of carrot cake was completely dried out.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
If you want to spend a stress free holiday, this is the place to be. Their buffet was superb.
