    I was deeply disappointed that the buffet has been discontinued - the selections for the brunch were very limited and I will probably never dine there again as long as there is no buffet.

    Good food, ambiance is great! Very beautiful lodge. Service is friendly, but a bit slow. Not unusually busy but maybe kitchen was a little behind which caused a bit longer wait for our food. Overall a good experience and we will be back!

    Made a reservation two weeks ahead and asked to be seated by a window. When we arrived, we were told the window seats were gone and the one left was for a later reservation. Our servers never went over the specials. He was also clueless about our drink order. Food was ok but nothing special. Definitely not worth the $18 for a Cajun pasta dish.

    We were very pleased with our experience at Timbers. The staff was very friendly and kind. Special shout-out to Steven who went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and enjoying our meals. He made great dessert recommendations and even offered to take a photo of our group for our special occasion. The food was delicious! Will definitely be going back.

    Disappointed with the service. Had reservations, yet we were asked to wait. While waiting, we noticed they had plenty of open tables and they immediately sat 2 other parties that came in after us. When we got our table, we both ordered drinks from the bar, which took almost 30 minutes to get. We watched our waitress continually service a large party of 30 people with other wait staff, while we sat with nothing but water. Other tables that came in after us, had received their bar drinks while we sat with nothing. We asked to speak to a manager, whom explained the delay was because it was Applejack festival weekend and they only had 2 bartenders to service the lounge and the restaurant. Yet the restaurant was not at capacity and had open available tables. Bad planning on management to not staff for the “influx of visitors during this yearly event”. Not sure how they think any guest would be ok waiting that long for their bar drinks. He apologized and removed them from our bill. Very disappointing night that put a damper on our birthday celebration dinner.

    The lodge is spectacular. The staff was polite and helpful. The restaurant food and service was top notch. Our breakfast was included in our package. We left a tip for our server based on what would have been the cost for it. Then when we checked out, we saw we were charged an $8.50 service fee for breakfast. Just be aware as this was not noted by anyone.

    So nice. The food was delicious, service was good (not the fastest but they are making our meals not reheating fast food so I’m ok with that), friendly staff and the environment was very nice. I liked that the tables were so spread out, it kept things a little quieter and the room felt nice & spacious and more private.

    Anniversary dinner. We hadn’t been to the restaurant in a while. It was a wonderful evening. Quiet dinner where we could talk and enjoy our time. Server was great and offered suggestions for food and wine. It can be pricey depending on what you order but it was good food and a good place for celebrating. Not any more cost than other quality restaurants.

    We were seated promptly for our 5:30 reservations on a Wednesday evening. I had the pork and my wife had a salmon salad. Both prepared perfectly! For desert we had the lemon berry cake and sorbet, both very good! Brandon was our server, professional and knowledgeable of the menu. The manager Steven, came by to check on us. The Timbers is a wonderful place to eat. Noise level is low, tables were spread out and the staff are all very professional.

    The hostess seated us and then we were completely ignored for fifteen minutes. After these 15 minutes we asked her if anyone was planning to wait on us. Several minutes later she brought us water and several minutes after that someone took our order. Seriously it was nearly 25 minutes before a waitperson even spoke to us, not even for a drink order. The ONLY saving grace about the service was the absolutely lovely gentleman who gave us bread and seemed to be the waitperson's assistant. He was polite, solicitous, informative and very kind . PS the restaurant was not very full. Had this been the case, we would have understood the lack of attention more. I will say the food tasted quite good but the lack of service would preclude us from going back.

    This was our most recent visit and as in every time before it excelled in nearly every area. The cocktails ordered by two of the diners were...tiny....and not cheap...that's the only "complaint" I might make. Otherwise, everything was exceptional. It is well worth the drive from Lincoln to arrive here, have your reservation waiting and not spend "the Lincoln Dining Line" waiting for a table. It is kind of expensive, but it is worth it.

    The food was not good. My ‘wedge’ salad had about a tablespoon of blue cheese crumbles and bacon. I had to ask for my blue cheese crumbles. It was small and tasteless. My son had the steak melt and the steak was dry and flavorless. The Texas toast it came on was overly soft and almost seemed like old bread. My other son had the cheese pizza from the kids menu and also lacked in flavor and was tiny in size. I would not eat here again.

    We had a reservation and it took 20 minutes to get a server to our table and another 50 minutes to get food. Our kid was getting anxious after 20 minutes so the server brought out her pizza but it was half cooked. Plus I told them we had a kid and when we were seated, her chin came up to the table. We reserved our spot 72 hours in advance and they couldn't offer us a booster seat upon arrival? Terrible hostess; Terrible service; Very expensive

    Our service was excellent, atmosphere was nice and it was quiet. We had Sunday brunch and opted to eat inside due to the heat of the day. My meal was very nice except for the potatoes which both my husband and I had ordered with our meal… they were watery and cold… my quess is they were partially frozen…. Very unpleasant! However my eggs Benedict were nice.
