My wife and I go there pretty often, sitting on the patio when weather permits. Had another good meal this evening. The Halibut with Mango Salsa was good though not great. According to my wife, her soft shell crabs rivaled the first soft shells she ever had in Savannah, Ga; and that's saying something. The Schaum Tort was really good... More

My family and I went to Timmers for a birthday celebration and regret that we chose poorly. The restaurant, though lovely decor and friendly staff, was terribly overpriced and the food was awful. And to charge $12 for a glass of wine (from a bottle I know retails for $14 a bottle!) was outrageous. There were 7 of us and... More

I'm biased, because my husband proposed to me here, but this is my favorite place to eat near West Bend. The restaurant and bar are part of an old resort, and it was beautifully restored not too long ago. They have a really nice outdoor seating area, and the lake is right there, also. The food is on the higher... More

First time visiting on Saturday night with another couple. Had called ahead for reservations and requested a table outside. They made a note of our request but said could not guarantee. We arrived ahead of our reservation time and our outdoor table was ready for us. Great food. Great staff. No problem getting separate checks for two couples. Will be... More

This is our first time to Timmer's restaurant but will not be our last. Outstanding atmosphere, great food, great service. Definitely worth the hour drive it took us to get to Timmer's for dinner.

Our visit to Timmers was a great choice from a service and menu choices. My citrus salmon was delicious and the rest of our party of thirteen offered the same reports on their choices. My only issue was when we asked for "couple" checks, the server said we would need one check and divide it up among ourselves. This posed... More

This place has been a favorite for years; we come often with friends. Today was perfect weather, reservations well in advance and seated on the patio. We were celebrating an anniversary with our in-laws (and embarrassingly so, this was their 1st time visiting Timmer's, per our recommendation), and dinner out sans children. Although I wasn't thrilled with not getting drinks... More
