A must do on all trips to Sanibel. Although my return meal does not top my first visit in 2013' (nothing ever tops the first/best you have ever had) it was still great and the staff was excellent. I will return.

We dined here with friends last week and everyone enjoyed their meal. The filet mignon was delicious and cooked perfectly. The dill salad dressing was also quite nice. The key lime pie was a nice ending to our meal.

My wife and I found this place while looking for another restaurant. We noticed this place was packed so we knew that must mean it was good. We weren't dissappointed. The service was good, the meal was good and the price was reasonable.

We have been coming to Sanibel/Captiva Islands for 40 years. We have been patronizing "The Timbers" since it opened. This restaurant is THE BEST. We have ALWAYS had wonderful meals and a great experience here. This week, we brought guests and enjoyed a lovely birthday dinner.We ordered 3 appetizers to share: smoked salmon, stuffed mushrooms, and a smoked fish salad... More

The Tomato Bisque was excellent! There were three of us and although the meal was served quickly from a very good server it was just average.

Went here with the family for our last night of vacation and was kind of disappointed. We called ahead and had no wait when we arrived. The atmosphere was perfect for the island and we were excited for all the local seafood offerings. But the food overall wasn't too special, nothing memorable except the three plus three appetizer where the... More

If you love seafood this is the BEST !! We spent a month on the island & no one topped this place. Nicely decorated inside with excellent service! The menu is extensive & priced fairly. Do your self a favor & pamper yourself .
