Timberline Grill - Ameristar Casino Black Hawk

$31 to $50
Steakhouse
With its walls of reclaimed timber, intricately carved wooden bar and solid cherry wood furnishings, the Timberline Grill pays homage to the best Colorado craftsmanship. And its cuisine is equally impeccable. When you’re savoring one of our signature dishes, such as cedar plank salmon or roasted prime rib, in front of a roaring fire, it's easy to imagine that you're high up in the Rockies, experiencing the deep peace that can only be found in an isolated cabin. One that serves Chocolate Avalanche Cake, that is.

Guests must be 21 or older to be on the first floor of the resort, including Centennial Food Hall, Waypost Deli, Timberline Grill and Starbucks. We look forward to your next visit. *Guests with reservations in Timberline Grill may go to the front of the casino security line. Please indicate the name of your reservation with security upon arrival.

I told the waitress at Timberline Grill that it was my birthday and they brought me out a special surprise dessert free of charge. It was very nice.

French onion was not good, all onions. Brussels sports totally burned. For the price I would like to not sit by a guy is shorts and a tank top. For people actually paying and not using points it's over priced.

Who is this chef with finesse? The chicken was prepared in a manner that I wish I knew how to make so amazing! The short ribs were not traditional either and had a very modern spin that was heaven. Service impeccable. No waiting for anything. Food was hot and just as we asked. My favorite Colorado restaurant at this time!

Made my reservation 4 days in advance, requested a booth, when we arrived we were directed to a table, told the person seating us we wanted and requested a booth. She told us there was none available and if we wanted to wait she would try and find us a booth. We did not want to wait any longer, as we were eating we noticed that a booth was available across the room and we waited and watched and no one was ever seated at the empty booth. We finished our dinner and was leaving and noticed that the booth was still empty. We are still unhappy with the service we received. Will think about dinning elsewhere next time.

we were sit out side by the buffet, the music in the casino was playing really loud so the surrounding table was trying to talk to each other by practically screaming. With the air flowing indoor we were a little uncomfortable.
In normal situation this is great, happy time people talking loud and cheer, but with the Covid-19, I think the casino should lower the music so people doesn't need to scream at each other

The food was excellent, yet our server seemed to forget about us and another server took over; only to have our original server show up 20 minutes later & ask if we were ready to order (after having already placed our order).

I am so glad they made changes to the menu! For semi-locals, it was getting repetitive. And their dessert menu is so much better now.

For the price we were not impressed with the food or the menu selection. Server was nice. Told we could not have a booth even though no one sat in the one behind us the entire time. Overall disappointing.

We have been going to Timberline grill ever since the casino opened. Always was good food and the rest was excellent. We went Saturday evening to celebrate our 40th anniversary and the meal was the worst we've ever had! The steaks had no flavor what so ever.....
The bread they serve to start off had salt poured over the butter....big mistake.....
The salad wedge with blue cheese dressing tasted watered down and no blue cheese chunks.....
The only thing that tasted good was the baked potato.
Sorry to say, we'll probably not be back unless something drastically changes.......
I understand times are bad, but there's no excuse for that pour of food, especially what we paid for our dinners!!!!!

Considered this the place to get a great bone in rib-eye and looked forward to our usuals on my birthday. Gone is the cranberry nut bread. Gone is the creme brûlée. Gone is the scalloped potatoes. Gone is the asparagus. Replaced with a bunch of overly complicated selections (forged and tamed mushrooms!)The food was just average...salad served on a hot plate, steaks lacking, baked potato with melted sour creme and one without bacon. Left very disappointed ☹️

I don't think they staffed enough help to cover the amount of people that were there that night in the restaurant. Food was good and when we did get served the server was polite and helpful. Ordered more bread but never got it.

I felt bad for the staff. There was only one server and she was overwhelmed. Management should have closed for the night. We've never had a bad night here, so we will be back no matter what. I just hope they have more staff on hand.

This is an expensive restaurant. Everything is ala carte, but that’s fine...being an expensive restaurant simply elevates the expectation level. My wife ordered the filet mignon medium ($38). When it arrived it was noticeably overcooked to the point that it was shriveled and burnt. I had a bone-in Ribeye cooked to expectation. She returned her filet and we patiently waited. Side dishes started getting cold. The second attempt arrived and the waitress asked her to check it. It was blue rare and inedible...so it had to go back. Eventually the third steak arrived by someone other than the waitress (it was medium rare but she just gave up and took it) and it came without the Bearnaise Sauce that was an add-on (we had to ask the server twice before we finally received some). The waitress never showed back up to check on the third steak or anything else we were missing. The sides were inedibly cold at this point. The waitress finally showed up with the $167 bill (for 2). I gently complained that the entire meal was a really bad experience. The waitress was rattled...mentioned that she was the only one there and that she would talk to her manager. They cut the bill to $87...an effort at least, but the experience was a huge disappointment and ruined what should have been a relaxing evening.
