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

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
