This was my third time eating here in three years, and it was similar to my previous experiences in that the value stems from the charming setting, more so than the cuisine. We love that the tables are set far apart, and the place is relatively quiet, making for easy conversation. The mountain atmosphere is warm and inviting, especially on... More

While staying at the resort we enjoyed breakfast at the restaurant twice. Service was excellent. Buffet was wonderful. Fresh with many choices. Special omelet orders and waffles can be ordered. Definitely recommend. Scenery is awesome.

The surroundings are reminders of the outdoors, but elegant. The menu is always varied and delicious, properly served. The wait staff never fails to please. For a memorable dinner, this is a must.

Dinner was good, perhaps because we arrived a bit late, for the local standards, but the restaurant was not very busy. Nevertheless, the food and service was good. We can recommend dining at this restaurant and it is comparably better than most in the area.

until the live music started. So depressing. Restaurants shouldn't hire musicians that sing sad songs. Otherwise, dinner was great and the service was spot on. It was our Valentine's Dinner (in March) and we had a good time despite the sad sounds coming over the speaker system.

We were up for Winter Fest in Blowing Rock and made reservations at Timberlake's. We were promptly seated in a beautiful paneled dining room. Casual dress was accepted (preferably no jeans). The waitress was very knowledgeable and made recommendations. We had a party of 6 and all enjoyed the many different choices for both entre and appetizer. We ended the... More

Our first time there and it was wonderful! My husband had a New York strip steak and I had salmon. Everything was wonderful!! We didn't make reservations and didn't want to wait so we ate in the bar. It was quite and food was delicious. We may go back tonight and make reservations.

Our family stayed at a condo on Chetola resort. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet at Timberlake's on a Saturday morning. The options looked a little limited but the waitress explained how they could make whatever we wanted. The only con was that my daughter is gluten free and they did not have any options for her except fruit and meat... More

We live nearby and eat here often. We absolutely love the location and the mood of the restaurant. It is always quiet and the service is always good. It is a perfect place to have a long dinner evening. We haven't been as enthralled with the menu selections recently. The food is adequate, but I wish they would add some... More
