This restaurant is persistently great year after year. The early bird selections are a good value and delicious. The coconut shrimp and crunchy grouper are our favorites. The fish is always fresh. The decor is really nice with the umbrellas and the leaf fans. You can't go wrong here.

We enjoyed every bite and will certainly visit again next... More

This is the 2nd year that we've gone to Timbers for our Thanksgiving meal. It, once again, did not disappoint. The turkey was moist & flavorful and all the traditional sides came along with it for an astounding reasonable price of $18! What? Yes. Plus you had a salad to go along with it. If you get this meal, I'd... More

The Timbers is still a great spot to hit if you plan to be on the island for a while. They have always had great seafood. Staff is attentive and the food is good.

Every time we have been here fish was always fresh and well prepared. This time stone crabs have been in season - and very tasty! Go try them. Very friendly service.

We went to Timbers for dinner and were not disappointed. It was the Stone Crab season and they were perfect as an appetiser. The snapper was also very good.
