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

Just return to our room in the Chetola Lodge after a charming, romantic dinner for two in the Timberlake Restaurant here at the Lodge. Lucky for us, we scored a real deal on Groupon for a 2 night mid-week getaway. We were lead to a lovely candle lit table adjacent to the window that looks over the lake. Winter/ modified... More

We had a great time sitting in the bar area listening to the music sipping some drinks and eating appetizers. Everything we had was great, drink prices are pretty good but food prices are expensive but everything we had was delicious. The atmosphere is great, would come back for sure!

The appetizer was cooked perfectly. We had the ahi tuna nachos. I had the special of the night, which was Korean barbecue steak with asparagus and a side salad. Even the dressing was amazing. My husband had the pecan encrusted chicken with the wasabi mashed potatoes. He also had a ceaser salad. There was nothing I tried at the restaurant... More

We were looking for a nice place to eat for a special occasion, so we chose Timberlake. The ambience and atmosphere was good since the Christmas lights were on throughout the resort. Our waiter was attentive and provided good service. I was surprised by the quality of the food we ordered. My wife ordered seafood which had to be returned... More
