Stopped in for a drink and liked the look: lovely lawn sloping down to the eastern shore of Big Cedar Lake, great patio with fire pit, old style knotty pine walls with large windows and a couple of fireplaces. Bocce ball and bags were available on the lawn. We returned for dinner enjoying... read more

We were told that Timmer's was a great place for a Friday night fish fry and it is. The beer battered cod is delicious as was the clam chowder. What a charming place; I felt like I was on vacation. Timer's also has a nice patio; great place for a relaxing drink or two. Looking forward to our next trip.

We were looking for a nice restaurant and found a true gem. We sat outdoors, enjoyed the view of the lake, and relished in wonderful food and treatment!

My husband and I wanted an outdoor venue for our dinner this Sunday and Timmers definitely delivered. We were planning on driving to the Harbor House, but opted for Timmers; a ten minute drive from our house. The Sauvignon Blanc was exceptionally crisp and grassy. The crab cakes were a great opening act to our meal. I chose the halibut... More

Arranged for a party at Timmers to celebrate my parents anniversary. Fran and Jan were so helpful as I planned this event from out of state. The food was wonderful and service was spot on! The parlor was a perfect location for our group of 25 and we all felt very comfortable there. All three dishes were wonderfully prepared and... More

This place is wonderful. It accommodated over 200 people for an anniversary party I attended. It sit back in the woods, on a lake and has a beautiful outdoor area for a fire in the evening, drinks and dining. The food was delicious and the location was peaceful and gorgeous.

Because it's close to home, Timmers is the place I typically go when family or friends are visiting and I don't want to cook. The food is always prepared well and the wine selection is good, so I know I won't be embarrassed with my recommendation. Entries are reasonably priced, but don't look for a bargain. It's a charming atmosphere... More

I have been to Timmer's a few times. Twice for business and once for pleasure. The landscape and views from the lakeside are breathtaking. The food has always been decent and they have a few unique choices, which I like. The service tends to feel a little cliquish and you can see the difference when regulars are being served.

Went here with another couple - 2 had fried cod, 1 baked cod and I had the grouper on special. All was good but the grouper was small and not real flavorful. Just average. Waitress was extremely busy but was good and attentive. My biggest complaint would be the excessive ice they use for drinks. I drank my first drink... More

This was my second visit to this fine restaurant. It was a busy Friday fish fry evening. Although reservations are not taken for Friday fish fry we did not wait long. The scenery and lodge look are very relaxing, especially with the large fireplace aglow on a cold winter evening. Our party all ordered different fish dinners. It was excellent... More
