We opened our doors Saturday May 27th 2017. After looking and working in various pop-up locations and farmers markets, we found an enormous 5,000 sq ft old family style restaurant that has been working in Guerneville,CA for about 60 years. We hope to provide a nostalgic look and feeling of the past with our unique style of traditional comfort food and Sonoma County flair we're calling "Rustic Cabin Cuisine. "

Way too expensive for what you get. The food was mediocre & the ambiance was not what you'd expect for that price.

Ahh. Not the restaurant's fault. You posted an open table on a night that they are closed. The rating is for open table, not the establishment. We really loved this place last two times.

We were very happy with our experience at Timberline! Everyone loved their dish and we all left with very full bellies, and we still had left overs! Great food, great value, and an even better beer and wine selection. Larry, the owner, introduced himself to us and made us feel right at home. We will definitely be back next time we are in Guerneville.

We were in town celebrating our anniversary and came here for dinner. Everything was excellent. The place is a little dated, but that doesn't bother us and we enjoyed looking out the big windows. Service was amazing and we would definitely go back!

Very expensive for what it was. Extremely overpriced. 25$ for a salad , 24$ for classic fish and chips. It’s an old funky place, we should have just left.

Sunday brunch was great - and even better for me at work in the neighborhood - to-go! I grab lunch on Fridays and Saturdays regularly and always have at least two lunches worth of food. And after work, Timberline is a great dinner spot too. I can have an adult beverage (or more than one) and dinner is usually big enough to box up half for lunch the next day or a late snack. Our office hosted a business lunch mid-week and they set the room up for us perfectly! The tables were arranged for easy conversations and food was great too. I've had the nicest service every time I visit or call in an order. I know it helps that I'm a regular, but even my friends and co-workers that don't get in as often are treated well and have fantastic meals. The restaurant has two main spaces - the front bar and dining room facing the street with fantastic views and people watching and a large woodstove for cold days (I love sitting next to it!) - and the LARGE back dining room and separate bar or big groups, business meetings, live music and events. All-in-all, The new owners are doing a great job supporting the community and offering yummy food for those of us that are on a bit of a budget and want to make things last!

We had the fish and chips and the Fresh Salmon... food was good and there was plenty of it! Owner was very friendly and our server was quick and attentive. Had a good view of the town.

It was St Patricks Day, Great Cornbeef and cabbage!, We also had the salmon in our group, it was excellent. I would recommend this place for every event. Thanks to Larry, one of the owners, he does a great job of hosting and meal planning, and more! Love the place.

OK, so this review is definitely influenced by the fact it took over an hour to get some food on our table, and none of the wine we ordered was available. People who arrived after us got their starters and main already by the time we got our meal. We had been seated for a while before anyone even came to serve us., we had booked a table so its not like we just turned up ad hoc.
We wanted to order some wine, they boast a good wine list, but nearly every wine we asked for was not available, because they were 'updating the wine list'. finally we asked for yet another option, and were told they definitely had that one, but a little later the waiter came back, with two glasses of something completely different and said they were out of the other one, but this was close to it! We we not wowed by it but It was already becoming a bit of a comedy sketch!
Had expectations of some good simple comfort food, and it could have been so good, but unfortunately after waiting for an age, the Pork chop I had was overcooked, and had to be sawn through, it was a good cut of meat so it was just poor cooking. My husband had the Steak which was OK, again a little overcooked, and nothing to write home about, the meal got eaten because we were starving, and actually at the point of cancelling our order and looking for somewhere else to eat.
Needless to say our date night with simple easy comfort food, was a bit of a shambles:
slow service
even slower food arrival
overcooked
out of wines listed
A table of 18 people arrived 30mins after we got there, god knows when they got to eat!
We wanted to support this restaurant, but it didn't support us in return! Sorry, must try harder. Maybe it was an off day?

Delicious pork chop & fried chicken. Great selection of draft beers at a fair price. I loved the atmosphere and the service. We'll definitely be returning the next time we're in Guerneville!
