    The venue is so lovely, but the service at lunch during a very slow time (we were only of only a few tables seated) was very, very slow (over 30 min wait for appetizer). I am guessing staffing shortages are the problem there like everywhere else lately. I still recommend the place, just not if you're super hungry or in a rush.

    Timbers at the Lied Lodge in Nebraska City offers a uniquely wonderful combination of setting, quality of food and service. It does skew toward the upper level of cost, but as the saying goes "it costs more because it is worth it". The dining room and the setting of the Lodge offer a unique atmosphere of quiet and a modern rustic setting coupled with "Nebraska Friendly" staff and service. The place is freakin' awesome is what I'm trying to say. Save some bucks, plan a special occasion or just a good time out and make the drive. I seriously doubt you'll regret it.

    Timbers was really unimpressive and disappointing as we had heard how great it would be. The restaurant itself is old, stale and really boring. The service was great. The wine list was very short and unexciting. The food was honestly a joke. Pommes frites looked like gas station JoJo's with cheap truffle oil. No sign of parsley. Served with ketchup? Pommes Frites served with ketchup? Garlic aoili, creme fraiche or even sour cream would be good but ketchup with truffle and parmesan is just wrong. My kid's burger was crispy burnt. Creme brulee with fruit in it is weird. I had the scallop and shrimp dish for dinner. Neither the scallops or shrimp had any sort of seasoning whatsoever and neither of those proteins go with the carrot puree that it was served with. Then to make it worse there was some sort of oil on the plate that didn't go at all flavorwise. The dish just did not make sense. The food overall was really disappointing, as if they're trying to be fancy but either don't have the budget or know how. We also had breakfast and it was about the same- disappointing and frankly confusing. We'll be back to Lied but I won't waste my money at Timbers again.

    I wish I could say this was a good experience but it was not. After waiting for almost 45 mins for our entrees my steak was wildly undercooked and when they cooked it up they really charred the outside and it just wasn’t very good. I am usually fine with even a rare plus steak but this was literally still cool in the center when I cut it and I asked for med rare. Baked potato was burnt. They new they messed up and gave us dessert on the house so that was nice.

    The service was very slow. Had to wait for 20 minutes to get a server to bring water to our table. Then a long wait until they took our order. No reason for slow service. Menu was the same each day is is limited in number of choices. Reservation had to be made for every meal through open table. The times seating was available were undependable as people had to call the restaurant to make changes. There were always open tables but manager would not allow anyone to be seated.

    Although our reservation was near the end of the brunch buffet time, some of the dishes and offerings looked a little "worn". Nuts and cheese platter were in disarray. Only four small slices of brie were pre-cut. Egg dish was fairly dry and nearly room temperature. Also the dessert offerings were a little sparse as we were doing the dessert table near three o'clock. Buffets need constant tidying which wasn't apparent at the 2:30 time frame.

    We just love the buffet that Timbers serves for holidays such as Easter and Mother's Day. Even when COVID isn't a factor it is hard to find places that do buffets. Not to mention one in such a lovely setting with such great food options. We get down from Omaha every chance we get and on Mother's Day, love all the lilacs blooming in Nebraska City!

    We went for early Mother’s Day (Saturday) and enjoyed a nice family brunch! Great food, friendly service and great environment. It was quiet when we were there. Have been at busier times when there is more conversation but the flooring helps keep noise level down.

    We enjoyed lunch for my friend's birthday. The host made us feel very welcome and took care to seat us where we could enjoy a scenic view. He made my guest feel special by mentioning her birthday whenever he interacted with us Our server wasn't very enthusiastic, but we didn't let her damper our spirits. We appreciated having vegan options, and our food was delicious. We spent time on the deck after our dessert. Fun time...thanks!
