Our waitress messed up 9 or the 11 orders that we had. She just wanted us to keep the food instead of taking it back and getting us what we ordered. Our food was cold and tasteless and the only refilled drinks when we asked and then I still only got one refill! It was expensive and very very disappointing. We ate there for supper and breakfast and the breakfast buffet wasn’t any better and again they would never refill our juice or soda!

I love coming to the Timber Lodge for dinner, always have a good experience. We arrived at 5:30 pm Saturday, I had reservations, no problem with seating. There were a few other larger parties in the dining area as well. We ordered our meal shortly after arriving. However, it took 45 minutes to get our dinner. My daughter ordered a hamburger and I had corned beef and cabbage, which was the special. I am not sure what the hold up was but that is a little long to wait for a meal. We went through two loaves a bread while waiting. The dinner was good, just didn't like waiting almost an hour for our dinner.

Dinner was a disappointment. I ordered the cornish hen. Served in a large bowl with grits.
Chicken was tough and difficult to cut and flavor was overwhelmed by the grits. Veggies were under done. Carrots were like eating one raw. Husband had the steak and he thought it was very good. Service was very good. Dining room is beautiful and a very nice place to have Valentine supper.

The restaurant had a buffet, but we ordered from the menu. The entrees were delicious and well presented. The cocktails were good. The dessert had an excellent presentation and was also delicious. There were some kids (including ours). Our kids ate all of their food, so it must've been good.

Wife and I did our usual New Year’s Day Brunch at the Lied Center in Nebraska City.
Our reservation was at 11:45, and the dining room was nearly empty.
I thought one of the meats was to be prime rib, but I was wrong.
We did the salad bar which was okay.
The main line had brunch items. I skipped the breakfast items and went for the bean, baby carrot and sliced pepper strip entrée, which was hot and good.
There was a container of quartered, browned potatoes, which I had some of, then to the carved sirloin.
The vegetables were good, but cutting the quartered potatoes was impossible with the table knife, and cutting the sirloin was equally difficult.
I think the quartered potatoes were leftovers from another meal, and the sirloin possibly left over from Thanksgiving.
The “cheesecake” turned out to be a rather tart lemon filling in a mini pie crust. The little chocolate cupcakes were really good, but the half Oreo cookie on top was rather soggy.
The chairs near the window looked comfortable, until you sat down, and I thought I was going to fall through. These chairs need to be replaced!
Two $18.00 meals cost me @$44.00 with all the taxes.
I just don’t think we’ll be going there again.

The food quality was poor. Over cooked tasteless mixed vegetables, the rice was tasteless with a mushy texture and no seasoning, the lamb had a beautiful presentation but was strong and of poor quality. The roast beef was good, but odd not to have a potato option with roast beef. Rolls were dry, chocolate cake was not worth the calories, dry and a grainy texture. Waffles were good, Salad bar was nice, the omelette was very good. All told, not a meal we would return for.

Took 3 attempts to get a HOT cup of coffee! Served in thermo-pots and was lukewarm by time it would get to us. Waitress was attentive and brought freshly brewed pots directly to table to solve the problem. Soups were also lukewarm and had to be reheated.

We invited family for Thanksgiving Buffet. We had previously had brunch months ago and were very satisfied, so we expected good food and nice atmosphere for Thanksgiving.
Waitress was ok. But food was a major disappointment.
Turkey and mashed potatoes Ok, but what is Thanksgiving without stuffing and Turkey gravy?
When we first started at buffet there was not any Au-Jus,for the beef , which we found to be hard to even cut. This should not have even been included it, it was that bad. No butter , we ordered from kitchen. At least dessert was acceptable.
A major black eye for Arbor from all of us an embarrassing disapointment for us after an hour drive and certainly will not look to any buffet in the future or recommendation.

In my opinion this was lackluster food at best; I would compare it to your standard hotel conference quality. Despite arriving right when the breakfast buffet started, I found most of the food was cold and dry. Good flavors and plenty of options however. The lodge itself is gorgeous and so was the view.

Excellent food and presentation. The dining hall is exactly that...it looks like a cafeteria dining area; however, the food could have been served at an upscale restaurant. I took pictures of my food because my plate looked so pretty. If you are looking for good food, it's great. If you are looking for romantic or upscale environment, maybe not this restaurant.

The quality of the food was a disappointment. It just didn't match the rest of the experience. However the quality keep me from complaining about the quantity. I had a brisket sandwich which was covered with a whole lot of green leaves but little else.
