    Timbers is always willing to work with large groups like our tribe. It’s kid friendly 🥰 - we sat and had hor duerves by the fireplace and dined at the adjacent large table as well. Hayden was so patient and exceptional! Thank you for the wonderful afternoon and for being so gracious and accommodating!

    I took a party of 8 to Timber’s to celebrate my 22 year old twins birthdays. A special treat for college kids whom are used to eating campus food. Our waiter was funny and attentive. The boys had great tasting local beers on tap and a cool mixed drink. The prime rib was great and several of us shared in on that! I enjoyed the special pork chop which was savory and tender. Three of the boys had the Timber burger which they loved and were impressed on its unique & delicious nature. We shared crème brûlée, molten chocolate cake and the mud pie. They also brought out birthday ice cream sundaes for the twins. The deserts were incredible. All were great! The ambiance was classic of a big roadhouse with rustic interior and a grand fireplace. Parking in their lot was easy and complimentary. Overall, it was a great experience.

    Restaurant is hard to find. It’s visible from the 101, but there’s no prominent sign telling you to turn at the gas station right after you exit. Food was okay. Service was good at first, but deteriorated when they got busy.

    This is a lovely restaurant with great atmosphere. The food and service were both great. The only bad bit was that the bill had this annoying credit card charge. It was my first experience with this and it left a bad taste for the whole evening. I hope this is not the norm!!

    We’ve been to Timbers twice now and enjoyed both experiences. The first time, the service was subpar but the food was very good. The second time, we took the family for a holiday dinner. Our server Jill was wonderful and all the staff gave us a great experience. Again, the food was amazing and everyone loved their dinner. I’ll go back again.

    We were pleasantly surprised with the food at Timber’s Roadhouse. I had a blue cheese burger with arugula and it came with fries. The burger was juicy and full of flavor and the fries were perfect. If we lived closer, we would go to Timber’s all of the time.

    The appetizers (Barvarian pretzel and onion rings) were delicious (we actually ordered a second pretzel because it was so good). The fish was nicely seared and the sauce was delicious. The rice pilaf was somewhat bland but it was not the main part of the dish. There is a cool play area for kids on the patio that my daughter (5) really enjoyed. The service was a little slow but everything was correct. I would definitely recommend this restaurant--it made a very hectic, short trip much more pleasant!

    This was our first time to the Timbers Restaurant having watched it come back to life over the past few years in Santa Barbara. We knew there was a rich history, but hadn't been there. There are two area for dining, the "dining room" and as area near the bar and outdoor seating area. We sat in the dining room, which was the more historical part of the building. It was very large and had many empty table for a Friday night. The outdoor area and the bar were filled with families, since much of the activity equipment, play houses, pool table, corn hole, etc., outside was geared towards younger kids. The menu had a wide range of offerings and we were happy with our food and waiter. Our favorites were the brussel sprouts appetizer and my husband thoroughly enjoyed his burger. The history and architecture of the building was interesting to see and read about.

    Graduation and Father's Day luncheon for our party of 12. The place had a cool, western hippie vibe. My brother's young girls enjoyed the outdoor patio area with all the games. The food was pretty tasty - we got couple orders of pork ribs, chicken sandwich, kids' meals, etc. The only downside was the slow service as the restaurant seemed very understaffed for busy weekend. There seemed to be only 1-2 actual waitresses in packed dining room supported by few busboys. It took long time for everything - order, get our food, and the waitress missed my sister's order of salad and onion rings, entirely.

    My only complaint is my husband ordered his prime rib medium rare. It was over cooked and arrived not pink at all. He sent it back and they made it right but it interrupted the flow of his dinner.

    The jalapeno poppers were quick to the table as was the 805. Our server was friendly and helpful as was the busboy who moved a heater closer to our table. The Timbers burger was as good as any good one in town, really tasty. Our prime rib was served properly rare and a good size portion, if a little less tender. The brussels sprouts, Caesar salad and desserts were all good as were the mixed drinks. A solid steakhouse with great service.

    Love the booths and the ambience with the huge fireplace and open rafters. Great outdoor eating area and bar. The food was classic and perfectly done. I had the prime rib. It was excellent. The service was first rate. Our server was one of the best we’ve ever had anywhere (thanks Philip). We felt the prices were very reasonable for what you get and we will definitely be going back. Nice to know we have such a great restaurant in our Goleta area.
