Timber Lodge Steakhouse Inc. was originally founded under the name Minnesota Steakhouse in September 1991 in Burnsville, Minnesota. The founder of Minnesota Steakhouse, Doron Jensen, changed the name to make it more marketable in other areas of the country. After the founder split off due to conflicts with his business partner, the company grew from 16 Minnesota locations to 85. Restaurants ranged from New York to Arizona under mainly the name Timber Lodge Steakhouse, with a couple exceptions (Paul Bunyans Steakhouse in New York).
Bad locations have plagued the company and it has dwindled back down to the original 16 Minnesota restaurants, including Fargo and Sioux Falls. As of July 24, 2010 The Fargo, ND location closed its doors. The Sioux Falls, SD location also closed late July, 2010.

Famous quotes containing the word history:
“History takes time.... History makes memory.”
—Gertrude Stein (18741946)
“No cause is left but the most ancient of all, the one, in fact, that from the beginning of our history has determined the very existence of politics, the cause of freedom versus tyranny.”
—Hannah Arendt (19061975)
“Literary works cannot be taken over like factories, or literary forms of expression like industrial methods. Realist writing, of which history offers many widely varying examples, is likewise conditioned by the question of how, when and for what class it is made use of.”
—Bertolt Brecht (18981956)
