I found this restaurant on the third day of our Sanibel vacation. The food was so delicious we ate their every night thereafter. We ate a different menu item each night, and each one was mouth watering, delicious. The service was great. Can't wait to go back.

Our dinner at Timbers was outstanding. The steaks were perfectly prepared and delicious. We definitely would dine here again!

Have been going to this place since it was newly opened, more than 25 years ago. It moved years ago now to a new building ( nicer atmosphere) but the food and the service remained really good. I have had my Thanksgiving Dinner here for many years now. I had Prime Rib this year but they always have turkey along... More

Had a really bad plate of mahi-mahi at Timbers. dry as an old shoe. tasted not much better. Fortunately, the portion was tiny so I didn't have to eat much. Could be that mahi-mahi is just crappy fish, I 'm not sure, haven't had it very often. It was about the cheapest fish on the menu. Huge piles of fries,... More

Just wanted to say an amazing server. He was very attentive to anything we needed. This is one of the best restaurants in southern Florida that I have been to. The crunchy grouper was out of this world. Thanks for an amazing experience. Eric Zipay

Although the menu had interesting choices we were very surprised that my bass and husband's grouper were such small portions. The bread was warm but boring white. Yams were tiny. Mixed veggies were uninspired. Our server was very personable and did a great job. But no need to return as there are plenty of other options on the island.

We have been coming to Timbers in Sanibel on every visit for the last 12 years. The fish is always fresh and delicious; the service is fantastic as is the atmosphere. Crunchy grouper is so terrific that we talk about it all year long. No one makes it better!

My husband and I, along with our 14 year old granddaughter visited Sanibel Island for the first time in Oct. We LOVED the island! We ate at the Timbers and enjoyed the food and atmosphere so much we went back a second time. We found two favorite restaurants on the Island and this was one of them! The restaurant is... More

Had a great dinner of excellent seafood. Their blackened grouper with thai chili sauce had the perfect mix of flavors. However, the sesame seed tuna (served perfectly lightly seared) and the cobia that my friends had were equally tasty. Great service and great atmospere were added pluses.

My boyfriend and I went here last night for an anniversary dinner. We didn't know anything about it coming in, but we were in for a pleasant surprise! Our server, Kristen, was exceptional! She knew the menu inside and out and was able to recommend great dishes. She had the ideal personality that any waiter or waitress should aim to... More
