The food is generally good. The restaurant is fine dining, but not white linen, so to speak. The dining room is a single room, and can be crowded. This is a resort, and the area around the restaurant is charming. The place has a nice bar area, and the staff is very friendly.

Celebrated a birthday at Timmers Resort. While the food was good for the most part, it was the little things that subtracted stars from the total experience. For example, we arrived at 7PM to find the reception area empty. We wandered into the bar looking for a hostess, none available. Back to the desk at the entrance, no one there.... More

We visited Timmer's on a Saturday night in late October with another couple. While the others enjoyed a drink at the bar with the attentive and friendly bartenders, I took my excellent Old Fashioned down to the water's edge for a little stroll before our 5:00 reservation. Once seated, we were greeted by Bonnie, our server, who was wonderful all... More

We've only ever ate here on Friday nights for their fish fry. Regular fish fry and the corn flake fish fry are equally as good, and I am super picky on my fish fries! You can also ask for a combo of both kinds. Scenery is beautiful. Great place to eat outside on a summer evening. My only complaint is... More

We had a wonderful dinner on Saturday night at Timmer's. We started by taking our drinks down to the lake and just relaxing on the pier with the magnificent view. When it was time for our reservation we went back up to the restaurant and ate outside on the patio. The service was great, and we each had a different... More

Went to Timmers Resort with family on a Friday night. We all had the fish fry and it was the best fish fry I have ever had. I had two types of fish, the beer battered and the corn flake battered. Both were very good, but my favorite was the beer battered. It was hot, crispy, flakey, tender, moist and... More

My wife and I go there pretty often, sitting on the patio when weather permits. Had another good meal this evening. The Halibut with Mango Salsa was good though not great. According to my wife, her soft shell crabs rivaled the first soft shells she ever had in Savannah, Ga; and that's saying something. The Schaum Tort was really good... More
