The evening was wonderful. Everyone was just great. The Hostess had a great personality. The place was busy the night we were there. I did make reservation prior so I had confirmation and we were seated on time without any delay. I would recommend that. Waitress was very knowledgeable and a pleasure to have waiting on us. Excellent. The food was wonderful., including the dessert! What a Great Night. We will be back again soon for your Sunday Brunch and wonderful dinners to come. It brought back so many memories of the many times over the years I have been at Timmer's. They did a Fantastic Job on the property. I Hope the Next Owners will realize the wonderful History of Timmer's. It is one of the few Supper Clubs remaining over the years on Big Cedar Lake. Timmer's is a Cherished Jewel that should remain for many more years for people to visit and enjoy. Thank you all for such a special night.

The quality of the food for the money is an amazing value. The service is good. The food selection is not extensive or exotic but it’s familiar and done well.

We had the walleye. Delish. But what stood out was the cream of mushroom soup with a hint of truffle. Perfect consistency. Not so thick like I normally get served. We'll be back!

It is on Big Cedar Lake but it is not waterfront. The restaurant sits far back from the lake and the lake view is obstructed by cottages owned by the Timmer family. Food was excellent but service did not come up to the food and cost. We were never asked if we wanted a second beverage, if everything was okay, if there was anything else we wanted including dessert.

We LOVE Timmers! Especially the brunch. We let Timmers do the cooking on Thanksgiving and Easter now.
The dining room can get a bit noisy but we feel that the inconvenience of that aspect of the restaurant is a small price to pay for the excellent food and service that you provide.

I was disappointed that I had to tell the waitress that we were celebrating a birthday. She was clearing the table and wishing us a nice day like we were to leave, and I told her about the birthday. I had put it in the reservation info when I made the reservation. and I saw that it was written by our name on their seating chart. It was my father's 93rd birthday and I expected a nice surprise for him. I was embarrassed to have to bring it up in front of him. then they brought him the strawberry shaumtorte and 5 spoons! Were we supposed to pass the bowl around? We weren't sure so just my mother shared it with him. We could have ordered separate desserts, we didn't expect shaumtorte for all of us for free, it just awkward with those extra spoons.

Very nice place - nicely tucked away, limited parking lot, but lots of roadside parking, excellent quality of food, lots of good service people. Hostess checked in to see how things were going with our dinner. I think the service, the timing and the quality of the entire experience was way above average.

We have always been delighted with Timmer's. The service, especial Fran, and the staff is exceptional. It is very friendly and relaxed with an aura of cultured romance. George has created a gem on the shores of Big Cedar Lake. It will always be our romantic evening get away for quiet drinks and culinary delights. Don't miss the opportunity to explore and enjoy Timmer's for all occasions.

Great dinner. Apricot glazed pork chop was generous and absolutely the best pork chop I've ever had. My husband had the parmesan crusted grouper (one of our most favorites), with the asparagus risotto. It was wonderful, as usual! Always enjoy Timmers. You can't beat the setting, especially on a beautiful mid-summer evening.

It was a beautiful evening sitting on the patio enjoying a cocktail and delicious appetizer of Parmesan Calamari! I had the prime rib sandwich which was tender & great onion rings! My husband had a caprese salad and added tenderloin, unfortunately it was ordered medium rare & it was medium well! He said it was still tasty but we’ve never have the steaks served as ordered!
