About the restaurant
Pitch is located in the historic Dundee neighborhood. Our establishment is unique in decor, drinks, menu, and staff!

Keeping up with the traditional way the first pizzas in Italy were made, our pizzas are cooked in a coal-fired oven. The menu also features seafood, hand-cut steak, housemade pastas, and a burger full of flavor! Our goal is to provide you with local, housemade, and imported ingredients. We offer a Happy Hour menu through the week. And, our bar provides an array of in-house concoctions as well as your traditional libation! Our wine selection is well-thought and most impressive!! You will enjoy Pitch!

We dined in a busy Saturday evening. Had reservations so seated fairly promptly. Our server took drink orders, gave us time to look at the menu and was back to take entree orders. Food came out timely and everything was delicious. Our server didn’t ask if we wanted dessert and just how we wanted checks divided. Not a problem but we might have considered dessert had she offered. My biggest complaint is that it is so noisy inside. It is very difficult to carry on a conversation with the table because of the noise level. We were also seated right next to the kitchen which didn’t help. So if you are looking for a cozy and romantic dining experience, this is not it.

About the restaurant
Ever since the first caveman decided to slap a side of mammoth over the cave fire, man (and woman) has enjoyed the flavor of food cooked over a wood fire. At Timber Wood-Fire Bistro, all of our dishes are made from scratch using the highest quality ingredients. They are then cooked either over our state-of-the-art wood burning grill or in a brick oven heated by the embers of logs.
Cooking in this way imparts a slight smokiness as it brings out the natural flavors of the food. A juicy ribeye sizzles and caramelizes, giving the tender beef a gorgeous crust. The homemade dough for our pizzas rises in the heat, and the crust gets to be the perfect combination of crisp and chewy. Vegetables share an entirely new flavor profile when cooked over wood. Dining at Timber brings an experience both classic and innovative. Come eat and drink with us as you watch our fireflies dance above the wood-fired grill.

We ordered the small filet with baked potato. One of us chose the whiskey sauce, one of us chose bearnaise sauce. Both meals were delicious with melt-in-your mouth steaks cooked to perfection. Ellen, our waitress took great care of us. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Service was outstanding. We were greeted in a timely manner and told about some changes to the beer menu, which was greatly disappointing, considering that even the electronic version of the beer menu was outdated. However, it is not the wait staff's fault. Food was tasty, but a bit more expensive than I'd expect for a bar and grill experience.

Everything was great about our visit! The only issue that I had was that the kids Mac and cheese was spicy and there was no way my 4 year old was going to eat it. That was very disappointing because a kids Mac and cheese should not be spicy.
