The crunchy shrimp is awesome! We come back every time we visit Sanibel. It's one of our favorites! A must if you're visiting Sanibel!

I took my girlfriend to Sanibel Island to celebrate her birthday. On Friday night, our first night there, we dined at Timbers and it was superb! The food and atmosphere was great and our server, Yolanda, was so attentive...it made the experience that much more special for us. We went back home to Tampa on Sunday and realized my girlfriend...

This was recommended by someone who spends a lot of time on Sanibel and it did not disappoint. The fresh fish was some of the best I have had and it was prepared well. Was well worth the price and we will be going back.

We ate at Timbers on our first night in Captiva. We were here for our son's birthday. The staff was wonderful, especially Kristin, our waitress. The food was excellent!

We go to Sanibel Island twice a year and Timbers is one of our favorites on the island. The food is always excellent and the wait staff great. The dining room manager, Anja, is a doll. Be sure you check it out!

We were shocked to find this huge resteraunt above a fish market. Fish is absolutely fresh off the boat that day and well prepared. We had a crunchy grouper and gulf shrimp that was outstanding. Waiter was perfect and attentive to our needs. Check it out.

This is a return trip to Timbers. Having been here before, we knew what we did and did not want. She had oysters Rockefeller for dinner and I had crab cakes. She likes the oysters but I thought the cakes were burnt and had a strange after taste. I should have stayed with the fish, which was delicious the last... More
