Our waiter Johnny made the evening with his attention to details and keeping in touch with us throughout our meal. Will definitely be recommending Timbers to others visiting Sanibel Island.

Met up with a high school classmate here. She is a part time resident and suggested Timbers Raw Bar. We were very pleased with the fresh smoked salmon and fresh $1 oysters served from 4-6:00. That was our meal. The waitstaff were so friendly and attentive. We will definitely come back.

Came here based on TA reviews. My family included a hungry teen came here for a good meal. Our waitstaff Brittany was friendly and efficient and well versed on menu. The service was top notch( probably the best waiter we had on the Sanibel). She anticipated our needs and kept our glasses filled. The Parmesan oysters were scrumptious. We also... More

Very disappointed, best part of the mean was baked potato. Grilled grouper was almost warm and under cooked. Nothing about the meal would warrant a return visit🙁

Timbers is a fun place. Quirky inside with umbrellas, odd fans, etc. It's a great place for families, but there often is a wait--it's what happens when a restaurant is popular. Have the crunch shrimp.

As usual the food here was very good. During both of our visits this year, the soups were only lukewarm. Based on the time between order and delivery, it doesn't seem like they sat anywhere and cooled off. We ate early so perhaps they were not completely heated yet.

Friends recommended this place for seafood. I got the steak 6oz sirloin steak with the tilapia fish. Wow best steak in a long time. Cook to true temperature ( medium) which I asked for and flavorful. Bread is also fabulous. Will go back.

The Timbers was recommended to isn't our hotel as a "local" place. Delicious! Reasonably priced, good fresh seafood. "Crunchy Grouper" and Cioppino was fabulous! Japanese calamari was a new, different twist for an appetizer. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. Busy place but not loud. Would recommend!

Good selection and great food and service. Always busy and they create a good dining experience. Seafood dishes, crabcakes, any shrimp dish are all good choices.

There's some mighty fine eating on Sanibel, but my best of the best award this time around goes to the Timbers for their shrimp scampi!
