Set lakeside, this rustic resort and restaurant is sure to please. The restaurant is what I would call a "refined rustic". Large fireplace, lots of beautiful wood but not "cabiney". This was the only place we found offering Pike in four days of dinners in Wisconsin. All our food was well... read more

Timmers is my favorite place to dine. There is a beautiful patio for dining in the summer and you can see Big Cedar Lake from the patio. The food is delicious. There specials are constantly changing and there is a good variety of sea food. They have a nice variety of wines as well. I've tried about 10 from their... More

We had two recent experiences at Timmer's. First we went there on Thanksgiving for their truly exceptional holiday buffet. Outstanding food that was fresh and natural with many gourmet touches. A beautiful table by a roaring fireplace. Every dish was truly delicious and five star worthy. We went back the next week for a fish fry and it also hit... More

Old school resort full of history. Nicely updated dining and bar facilities. Specialties of the house are seafood dishes that are current, flavorful, and well presented. Ribs and steak were also enjoyed and above expectation. Service is attentive and timely; prices are well in line with the offerings. Atmosphere is welcoming and beautiful. Easy stroll to lake views and cozy... More

We were told that Timmer's was a great place for a Friday night fish fry and it is. The beer battered cod is delicious as was the clam chowder. What a charming place; I felt like I was on vacation. Timer's also has a nice patio; great place for a relaxing drink or two. Looking forward to our next trip.

We were looking for a nice restaurant and found a true gem. We sat outdoors, enjoyed the view of the lake, and relished in wonderful food and treatment!

Stopped in for a drink and liked the look: lovely lawn sloping down to the eastern shore of Big Cedar Lake, great patio with fire pit, old style knotty pine walls with large windows and a couple of fireplaces. Bocce ball and bags were available on the lawn. We returned for dinner enjoying crabcakes - seemed pricey for their size... More

My husband and I wanted an outdoor venue for our dinner this Sunday and Timmers definitely delivered. We were planning on driving to the Harbor House, but opted for Timmers; a ten minute drive from our house. The Sauvignon Blanc was exceptionally crisp and grassy. The crab cakes were a great opening act to our meal. I chose the halibut... More

Arranged for a party at Timmers to celebrate my parents anniversary. Fran and Jan were so helpful as I planned this event from out of state. The food was wonderful and service was spot on! The parlor was a perfect location for our group of 25 and we all felt very comfortable there. All three dishes were wonderfully prepared and... More
