We visited for dinner Saturday evening. We eat here every time we visit. Love the island atmosphere and casual feel, yet the food is not casual. We started with escargot followed by Caesar salads with anchovies. Grouper grilled perfectly with a garlic butter sauce and a salmon for my husband. We enjoyed every bite and will certainly visit again next... More

This is the 2nd year that we've gone to Timbers for our Thanksgiving meal. It, once again, did not disappoint. The turkey was moist & flavorful and all the traditional sides came along with it for an astounding reasonable price of $18! What? Yes. Plus you had a salad to go along with it. If you get this meal, I'd... More

The Timbers is still a great spot to hit if you plan to be on the island for a while. They have always had great seafood. Staff is attentive and the food is good.

Every time we have been here fish was always fresh and well prepared. This time stone crabs have been in season - and very tasty! Go try them. Very friendly service.

We went to Timbers for dinner and were not disappointed. It was the Stone Crab season and they were perfect as an appetiser. The snapper was also very good.

Our family of five ate a late afternoon turkey dinner here. From start to finish.....fantastic! For $18.00 we had warm brown bread, a starter of soup or salad and then a plate HEAPED with turkey & fixing. Dessert was extra but we had no room to eat any more. The wait staff were friendly, plentiful and efficient. Our waiter told... More

The bartender Mike at Turtles Beach and Pool Bar sent us (my husband and I) here on our last night of vacation. I am so happy he did! The food was very good and the ambience was also very nice. We started with the clams casino and shrimp cocktail for appetizers which were excellent. Entrees came with soup or salad,... More

Visited based on a glowing recommendation, but let's don't kid ourselves. After waiting 10-15 minutes for a waitress to appear, she finally did, but it seemed like we were interrupting her. While the crab bisque was delicious, the entrees were just okay - nothing spectacular. The food is over-priced for what it is.

Thank cmyers03
