This was my first time dining at Timmer's, but certainly won't be my last! The food , service and ambiance were outstanding. As an added bonus, Fran, the manager (formerly at the River Lane Inn) was there to greet us. We went with another couple and all had great dinners (Scallops, Grouper, Walleye and Ribs). The restaurant has a great... More

This is the place to be in West Bend for a great Wisconsin Fish Fry. The lightly dusted perch is the best in the area, paired with their potato pancake and coleslaw will have you coming back again and again. The atmosphere is very relaxed and everyone, and I mean everyone is genuinely friendly and make you feel welcome.

Took my husband out to dinner here for his birthday. We had a great time. Reservations online were easy and convenient. It was winter and dark but from what I could see the grounds looked pretty and elegant. The restaurant was inviting. The food was great. My husband ordered the Jumbo Shrimp, I had a steak. My favorite was the... More

Timmers' main room, with a huge floor to ceiling fieldstone fireplace, and lots of wood in the walls and ceiling creates a warm and cozy atmosphere for dining. We were there for my husband's birthday which they acknowledged when they brought out schaum torte topped with ice cream, whipped topping and a lit candle. Happy Birthday was sung and even... More

Timmers provides a first class atmosphere for lake dining no matter the season. A re-built century old legacy maintains the integrity of the original design and the original field stone fireplace was preserved and burns warmly during dining. The dining experience is never disappointing. Try the artichoke dip for an appetizer, scallops or salmon for an entree or, for a... More

It's a beautiful restaurant for date night. Service was not as good as the food & the atmosphere. We sat by the fire one visit & it was lovely. One visit our server was unattentive & seemed annoyed we didn't gorge ourselves on huge meals or that we didn't order anything from the bar (we are non-drinkers). We have no... More
