We have be traveling to Sanibel for 30 years and Timbers is a must every year. Get the fresh fish and you will not be disappointed. Whatever fish you choose will be excellent and you have a choice of how it's prepared. The New England clam chowder is excellent and it, or a salad, is included with most entrees along with a veggie or starch side of your choice. The service is friendly and professional and they offer 30 minute call ahead so hopefully the wait won't be too long. We have also made a reservation for a large party there (20 people) in the past.

There are lots of places on Sanibel with good food but the Timbers puts it all together. Very efficient, nice loaf of warm bread (seems a little rare around here), water without asking and prompt service.

They have a big list of oysters (loved the Florida gulf oysters). A daily list of fresh fish specials provides what may be the best choices but the shrimp dishes are also good.

The atmosphere was very pleasant as was the service; the menu offered a good variety of dining options. We selected the stuffed mushrooms and shrimp, crab bisque and grouper. No disappointments!

Really great food !!
Best meal on the island (6 days). The swordfish was delicious - best we’ve had actually. The kids went Sirloin steaks and there were happy too. Fast service and well organized queuing system. Recommended to arrive before 18h30 to avoid the busiest hours
