Priority Pass Member? Here’s What Your $28 Credit Buys You For Dinner At Denver International Airport And a Takeaway Tip

Plenty of folks wrote about the addition of Timberline Steaks & Grille as a Priority Pass restaurant option last week.  I didn’t see anyone who had captured copies of the menu with prices (apologies if I missed a post) so I snapped a few when I was in Denver recently.

There are a number of ways to qualify for a free Priority Pass membership.  Credit cards like Chase Sapphire Reserve and American Express Platinum give you access.  And, you can also purchase a membership.  But, what’s the value?

Depending on what level of membership you have in the program, you’re entitled to a certain number of free airline lounge visits.  You may or may not be able to bring guests for free as well.  Priority Pass has a huge network of lounges around the world.  Some are definitely better than others.  And, they’ve been working to improve their product.

Recently, they’ve added a number of restaurants to the program.  A little over a week ago they added Timberline Steaks & Grille in Denver International Airport.  Plenty of bloggers covered that event, but I didn’t see pricing.  So, I snapped prices of the menu and have added them below.  Two other quick points first:

  1. If you have a Priority Pass card, you’re entitled to a $28 credit for you and a credit for each of your guests.
  2. There’s one item you can take away that makes sense if you’re in a rush.  If you’ve followed along here, you know my penchant for macarons.  Timberline has an option where you can take macarons with you.  I confirmed with the team there that you could order a box from a server via the Priority Pass credit to take with you.  I’ll try this in the future and see if they’re any good.

The Final Two Pennies

If you were planning to be in Denver airport and needed to eat dinner, this is a pretty good use of a lounge membership.  I’ve never eaten at Timberline, and the reviews on service aren’t great. For food quality, I’d absolutely choose Root Down located nearby.

But, free isn’t horrible.  And, it might be worth taking some macarons with you.  Now, that pricing….


  1. I used my pp card last week to get a bottle on wine at the Portland airport. Had breakfast with money leftover. Server said take snacks for the road because we had a lot of money leftover. Asked about the wine, and he said “go for it!”
