    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.

    We came by this place with my in laws for a quiet brunch. It was lovely - good food, quiet ambiance, and a beautiful view. We walked the manor and grounds afterward for a Sunday activity and decided to come back for our anniversary. Beautiful!!!

    The steak was good, not great, but the side of mashed potatoes tasted like they came out of a box. Similar thing with the short ribs and Mac and cheese. Overall the food was just average. The view was cool and sunset was beautiful but food was disappointing

    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.

    We love the Lied Lodge and Timbers… having stayed multiple times. However our food was cold and I had to ask for more coffee toward end of meal after just one short cup. Server was ok.., not friendly as we’ve always experienced in the past when I would give rave reviews on everything.

    Very nice place and food is consistently good when we go. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Noise level varies. We’ve been when there were large groups and it was moderately loud, but we’ve also been when it was very quiet. It just depends on who is there when you go, I guess.

    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.
