A word from Timberline Grill - Ameristar Casino Black Hawk
With its walls of reclaimed timber, intricately carved wooden bar and solid cherry wood furnishings, the Timberline Grill pays homage to the best Colorado craftsmanship. And its cuisine is equally impeccable. When you’re savoring one of our signature dishes, such as cedar plank salmon or roasted prime rib, in front of a roaring fire, it's easy to imagine that you're high up in the Rockies, experiencing the deep peace that can only be found in an isolated cabin. One that serves Chocolate Avalanche Cake, that is.

    We very much enjoyed our anniversary dinner. The waitress was very attentive. The food was excellent. My wife had the salmon and I had the sirloin. Can offer no suggestions to improve either of those. Provided a free dessert to help us celebrate. Nice surprise. Really enjoyed the iced tea. The ice cubes are made of frozen tea!

    Great food, great service and very accomodating! A large party with several babies and small children walked in on a Sunday evening just before us and the restaurant honored our request NOT to sit near any kids! We love kids, just don't want to sit near them when we're spending $200+ at a nice restaurant.

    Very nice rustic atmosphere with fireplaces. The menu is extensive. I have eaten in the Timberline Grill at least 20 times and have never been disappointed (and I do not eat red meat). My husband, family and friends all feel the same as myself. Never pass on the dessert. It is all wonderful.

    The service, from the staff has always been excellent. The food has always been fresh and hot. We have always been served in a timely manner. The management team is very accommodating. It's always been a very quiet and very clean environment. The over all experience we have had at the Timberline has kept us coming back again and again.

    We were pleasantly pleased with the food and service; caesar salad had poor quality lettuce and our server did not pack it up as we requested; the prime rib was delicious and so was the seafood pasta. It was a good experience and better than we have experienced in the past...very expensive, though

    I usually love going to Timberline Grill, but lately the have taken some of my favorite foods off of the menu. Super disappointed!! Now, not sure if we will eat there as often as we used to. It's expensive, and when you can't get what you've come to love, not sure if it's worth it.

If you plan to go to Blackhawk and are looking for an excellent place to eat, I highly recommend checking out the Timberline Grill at Ameristar.

    RockyMtnHi
    Dined on 11/21/2013
    When you first walk in you have the feel of a great mountain lodge. Tables, booths, some private booths. The menu has a variety of choices from trout to ribeyes and rack of lamb. We have never had a bad meal here. The ribeyes were perfectly cooked and very tender. Baby Back Ribs are tender and flavorful. Our favorite side dish is the Au Gratin Potatoes. Creamy with a hint of pablano pepper. Service is great. Try the onion soup if you want a smaller meal. Attire is casual to dressy. They are closed Monday & Tuesday. Price is $$$$ but you can do it for less if you have appetizers or soup/salad. Casino Point Comps work too. We plan our hotel reservations around when TG is open. Recommend reservations on Open Table/Ameristar website.

    Came to BH and this restaurant to celebrate a birthday. The food was good but not great for the price, Capitol grill is similar price wise and has better food. The wine list was surprisingly limited for a steak house. Also no birthday dessert was offered which was a bit disappointing and the waitress didn't even mention it.

    Great service but a bit too much food on the plate, a little less would be better. The food was good and well prepared but nothing spectacular. In a casino this is the best place to be-quite any away from everything which allow you to relax.

    Great food, we have been here several times before and made the reservation based on those previous experiences. Menu has changed, very good in all respects. Server was overwhelmed, she didn't have time or inclination/motivation to keep water glasses full, take orders when ready, offer wine selection, dessert unless we asked for it...and then made short "hmmph" when we did ask about our favorite dessert. She had to re-do the bill to add that on. Gee, sorry we didn't want to bother you...Maybe she had a bad night, or maybe she needed help. Not as good as we have come to expect, but everyone has a bad day, I guess. Disappointed that it was my wife's birthday when our server had hers...

    Yes, it was a Saturday night at the nice restaurant in a casino... so we didn't have the highest hopes. The food was fine. But it was too loud to converse, our entrees were delivered more than 30 minutes after we finished our appetizer, we continually had empty water glasses and they didn't even wish my husband a happy birthday although I put a note on the reservation. Plus there was a problem putting the tab on our hotel room, and that took several minutes to resolve. Not worth a return visit for us. We'll eat elsewhere in Black Hawk.

    That is the rating my wife gave to our experience at the Timberline Grill and the Ameristar Hotel in Blackhawk. I asked for a quiet area of the restaurant for our party of six. We not only got quiet we got a private room! The food was execellent...I had the full rack of ribs and they literally fell off the bone. My wife had the trout and loved it. All of the family liked the food. The wine list is high quality but affordable. Our server, Mariola, was efficient and , after we gave her some time, very friendly too. I would highly recommend the Timberline.

    I have never been so disappointed with a restaurant before. We went out for a special occasion and our food was overcooked, our waitress took a very long time on our drinks and when we spoke with a manager and told him this he responded with little concern and said "sorry about that, thanks for your input". I would never recommend or say anything good about my experience here and was very upset.

  • Very disappointing
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 8/30/2013
    Our dining experience at Timberline Grill was very disappointing, from the awkward wait outside for 10 minutes (after the hostess asked us to follow her and then turned around and told us to wait), to the arrangements of tables in the place, to the overly salty main course, to the side of "Heirloom Tomatoes" that were very so unripened that they crunched. Even the vodka martinis were so watered down that all we tasted was olive juice. The Timberline Grill did not live up to expectations and I would pass and go to Wendy's if I were you! Better value for your dollar!
