Review: United Airlines (CRJ-700) First Class Denver to Oklahoma City
I arrived at the airport at 1:08 p.m. for a 2:45 p.m. flight. I checked a bag and was through security in 4 minutes. After a short walk, I caught the train to Terminal C so that I could visit Timberline Steaks and Grille.
Timberline is located at the top of the escalator on the right.Timberline Steaks and Grille is a Priority Pass restaurant. I has access due to my American Express Platinum card. Priority Pass members get a $28 credit to their final bill.
I approached the hostess stand, where I was told that there was no wait to enter the restaurant. The restaurant had a decent amount of seating. There was a smoking lounge on the on the other side of the main seating area.
The bar was packed, which is typical for an airport bar. The bar had a wide range of beer, wines, and spirits.
I was not hungry since I had eaten at The Pig & Sprout before coming to the airport. I really wanted to see how the $28 credit would be applied, so I ordered drinks. First was a gin and tonic…
…then a Citra Pale Ale. The Citra was a really good beer so I decided to have another.
The best feature of the restaurant was the opportunity to geek out plane spotting. The mountains in the distance provided a great backdrop.
My final bill was $27.80 so my entire visit was ‘free’. I enjoyed my short time at Timberline Steaks and Grille. I will be sure to order food next time for the complete experience.
