Bar/ restaurant We visited while staying in newberry for snowmobiling. Would recommend the nachos, could of been a little more generous with the fish portion of the fish and chips, French onion soup was just ok, snowmobile trail side, gas near

Simple pub style menu that includes "pasties" and selection of craft beer to satisfy every taste. Prompt and friendly service in an outdoors-man's style decor. .

Good food at a fair price define this rustic style restaurant/bar. This place has changed hands over the years. The portions in years past were large and fairly priced but they seem to have scaled back a bit on the size of the meals. The food is still good with typical bar offerings served in sometimes interesting ways (fries in... More

Thank you for your review on TripAdvisor. We have found that the days of oversized portions that our guest through away are outdated. The great news is that it allows us and thousands of other Restaurants to keep prices lower. As you well understand food is very expensive to buy compared to just a few years ago. We believe we...

We visit this area once a year riding snowmobiles. My 12 year old son said if your not going to eat at Timber Charlie's there's no reason to go to Newberry! They have the best hamburgers!! Fresh ground daily!

Nice location right off the snowmobile trail. We've eaten here before and I was more impressed at that time than this time. We were with a large group and had a very good waitress, I felt bad for her because our food came out at different times and mine was cold when it finally did come. Husbands steak was way... More

We've been here quite a few times and the food is always great. This last trip we did not know they weren't open early for breakfast, but the owner happened to walk up as we were at the door so he let us in and fed us breakfast anyway! So thank you! Only good place to eat in Newberry.

A few months after the disastrous vusit, I decided to give Timbers another try. What a difference! We were greeted warmly, then our server made a point to apologize for the way I had been treated on my last visit. Back to wonderful, attentive service, and the best whitefish in the UP. I am a happy camper again :)

My sisters & I brought our mother here for a birthday lunch. The 3 of us sisters all ordered the gyro. It did not have the traditional tzatziki sauce on it (which I love) so I was disappointed. It had some other type of sauce which wasn't as good and I guess in defense of the restaurant, I should've asked... More

Thanks for your review. Kebobs known in America as Gyros are served with many different sauces. Everything from white to red even tomatillo sauces. The sauce you are referring is actually Greek hence the yogurt style sauce. At Timber Charlie's restaurant we make many of our own sauces from scratch. Over a half dozen!

This place is a lot of fun. Interesting "yooper" lingo on the menus and very good food with lots of options. Also a nice variety of local taxidermy animals on display.
