My boyfriend and I had dinner here because we wanted seafood and the reviews were pretty good. Our server was very attentive in refilling our waters and wasn't hovering all the time which we appreciated. The food wasn't anything special in my opinion. He had the pecan butter salmon and I had the swordfish. They were decent but not something... More

The restaurant has very good food, great atmosphere and is great for lunch or dinner. Wonderful seafood for seafood lovers and some dishes for landlovers too.

We went to Timbers as a group of 6 adults and 6 kids. In my opinion, restaurant experiences can really vary depending on the size of your party. The staff at Timbers was wonderful. The servers really made an effort to make sure we were taken care of. Everyone was pleased with the dishes they picked (we all mainly ordered... More

The atmosphere of this restaurant makes it a great choice for a family restaurant. We went because my 11 year old wanted hogfish and we had not found it on the menu at several other restaurants. We had such a good meal we returned the following week with my nieces. The menu changes daily based on what they catch. Right... More

We went here for dinner. I had the filet and my travel companion had lobster tail. We started our dinner with a shrimp cocktail appetizer. It was ALL delicious! The service was wonderful too! I will return for sure!

I guess I'm a bit spoiled when it comes to seafood restaurants, living in the Boston area. Timbers was okay, but nothing to right home about. Our waiter was attentive and pleasant. They had good choices on the children's menu. The frozen drinks were good. My tuna steak was slightly over cooked, but not horribly so. I think the sauce... More

We come to Sanibel every year. I make sure to write up where we go, in part to remember what we did and in part to remember what we loved. It's a solid meal. This trip, I had the daily catch and had the red snapper, bronzed. It was cooked perfectly. I enjoyed it well enough. The meal overall wasn't... More

Thank you for your recent review of our restaurant. It seems you enjoyed everything except the big bang shrimp which I must say has been a huge hit ever since we added it to our menu but the consistency of the sauce may not be for everybody. Glad to hear the service was very good as well. I do hope... More

Had dinner here when we were on Sanibel a few years ago and tried it again this year as our last dinner on the island...def was not disappointed. Went late (845pm) but servers were very good and quick. Had everything from crab cakes, seafood platter, shrimp and calamari...all were large portions and very good. No complaints. Prices are in line... More
