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

Timmer's has recently undergone some ownership/management turnover. They also did a fairly extensive remodel. The NEW Timmer's is open and as good, if not better, than ever. The up-north feelings I get here are great. The grounds on the lake are well kept, so walking around before or after dinner is a must. And it couldn't be a better place... More

Recommended by friends, we took the drive out to West Bend and Bid Cedar Lake for the Friday Fish Fry. EVERYTHING was excellent. The drinks, the view on the patio, the rolls, the potato pancakes, the coleslaw and especially the beer batter fish. You can order how many pieces of fish you want. I had 2 and it was just... More

I had the pleasure of dining at Timmer's in July. We had great drinks at the bar. We ate out on their beautiful patio. Beer batter fish or Corn flake breaded fish(you get to order how many pieces of fish you want-I ordered 1 piece, not huge-with everything else-just enough!!), potato pancakes (I had these-served with applesauce), fries or baked,...

An absolutely lovely setting on Big Cedar Lake in southern Wisconsin. Such a vacation feel, although just 1/2 hour from Milwaukee. Good food, friendly staff, hustling service, reasonably priced, occasional musical entertainment. Outside seating is so relaxing near the lake and cabins. Even in winter, the log cabin decor and feel of the interior is a virtual escape. A real... More

During a recent visit back to Wisconsin, our friends recommended that we visit Timmers. They are not "foodies" but they appreciate well prepared meals. After we had dinner with them, we thanked them for sharing their recommendation. It was worth the short trip that we took from the Milwaukee area. We found a surprising amount of sea food on the...

We are regulars at Timmer's and have always been extremely happy with the meals and service. We hadn't been to their Sunday Brunch since 2013. Upon going to Brunch today with friends I have to unfortunately say we were disappointed this time. They ran out of entrees and selection of food was a bit on the skimpy side. Don't know... More

Timmer's retaurant is part of Timmer's resort on Big Cedar Lake where there is a walking path along the lake. The restaurant building looks somewhat new inside and out. The bar was spacious with nice windows. There was no apparent table service. We went to the hostess at 6:30, our reservation time. She said she could seat the four of... More

A little more upscale than a usual Wisconsin tavern fish fry. Not terribly pricey, but the food is very good and it has a nice atmosphere. Beautiful grounds, nicely decorated building with old charm to it. Also on Big Cedar lake, which is nice in the summer time.
