The updates by the new manager Fran are apparent at all stages of the restaurant. Great job! We will be back.

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

We have been here twice now, both experiences were excellent. Starting with cocktails; made to perfection. On both occasions we had the seared ahi tuna and stuffed portabella mushrooms as appetizers. They were both excellent! My husband had grouper, and I had the halibut. Again, absolutely delicious! I love the vegetable side, with the tasty wild rice. A nice change... More

My husband and I are frequent diners at Timmer's Restaurant. We've always been very pleased with the food and service and have looked forward to returning again and again. However, our last dining experience was very different. After we were seated, we were given menus and a blackboard with the specials. Things started to go downhill when the server arrived.... More

My friend had the Walleye dinner; I had the Scallops. Both were wonderful; my scallops were cooked to absolute perfection. Their Friday fish fries are also delicious. Have dined here before over the past few years & it was usually ho-hum. Excellent service also.

Decided to take a short drive to Timmers on a Thursday evening when my sister was in town learly September. We were wanting fish and Timmers did not disappoint. It was a beautiful day over looking the lake and he plants still in bloom. We walked through the outside dining and because I'm afraid of bees we are inside. We... More

If you are ever in the West Bend area, take time for dinner at this lovely Country venue along Big Cedar Lake. We were able to enjoy their last lunch scheduled since summer is coming to an end. We had meal on the patio over looking the Lake and lovely rental cottages bordering the scenic grounds. A group of eight... More

I have been to this restaurant dozens of times in the past 6 years. They have made some definite improvements. The atmosphere is Timmer's best attribute. There a few fireplaces, and the dinning area is large, yet inviting. The menu selection from description is outstanding, then the disappointment sets in. Being a foodie, I would say the food is very... More
