Fantastic raw bar for oysters....Great selection. LUKE the bartended and oyster shucker did more than a fantastic job for us! Oysters were super fresh, great selection, and expertly shucked. Make sure to get there before the raw bar opens, if you want to sit at the raw bar, very few seats at the actual bar....but well worth getting there early... More

Was led to Timbers on the recommendation of friends. They delivered. We were a party of 4 and had everything from salmon to shrimp to grouper and sushi - it was all excellent and portions were great. They also have 30-minute call ahead seating...very nice.

Ginny our waitress was outstanding. She is friendly and goes above and beyond. We have had many wait staff during our vacation and she is the best! Timbers does not disappoint.

Fresh food in a very casual atmosphere. The restaurant is located in the marina so if the view is hard to beat. The fish was fresh and the prices were on par with the rest of the island. It is however very noisy and not a great place for someone who has trouble with hearing.

My husband and I are trying to clean up our collective act, and have been trying to exercise more and eat better. Luckily, the Timbers Fish Market makes that incredibly easy. A great selection of local fish, off the boat fresh. I've been riding my bike up there in the morning and picking up dinner for the past three weeks.... More

Went with two other couples so we had a variety of food and everyone indicated how good their meals were. Both the steak and the seafood were done perfectly. The fresh raw oysters were tasty and large. Service was very good. They know what they are doing in every aspect of this business as the crowd waiting to get in... More

......Take Timbers off the list. The waitress tonight was appalling, rude, rushed and without a smile. The crunchy Grouper has turned from an island treat to an oversized plate of friend cornflakes. At $28 a plate, the Timbers is no longer a winner. 6 of us ordered 3 different entrees, our salads arrived with the wrong dressings, our drinks never... More
