So we told him that we would make the Timbers Restaurant our last dinner on the island and we... More

Lots of TV's for fall football. The prices were surprisingly good as Florida resort area prices go. The food was good as well. Interesting place with pictures of celebs that had visited previously on the walls. This place was casual. I would eat here again.

We always make sure to get to Timbers at least once. The oysters are the best on the island. We also buy our sea food and steaks here and not the grocery store. The service is also good.

As someone who's come to Sanibel often over the last 35 of my 40 years (likely longer), I had associated Timbers with great local fish. The Clams Casino & Oysters Rockefeller were fantastic. Fresh, perfectly seasoned, and right out of the broiler. The Clam Chowder was creamy, sweet, the clams were tender, and there was just enough clam liquor in... More

It was our first night in Sanibel and our concierge recommended Timbers. Boy do we owe her! Timbers serves up delicious and very fresh seafood The clam chowder (New England) was so good I want to take home a quart. The calamari was the best I've ever eaten. I got the crunchy grouper with shrimp and scallops. It was delicious!... More

The seafood is fresh here, as this restaurant is attached to a seafood market. But the dining room is all wood and natural colors and is the perfect setting to enjoy fresh Gulf Seafood. If you are going for an early dinner and you happen to hit the usual afternoon thunderstorm on Sanibel in late summer, the restaurant has covered... More
