Amazing, we love Timmer’s and will return. It is comfortable and the noise level is perfect to have a conversation without being overheard or needing to compete with the neighboring table. Almost like you are in a private room. Our waitress was excellent. I appreciate the Gluten Free options and the extra steps they take to ensure my meal is as tasty and beautiful as everyone else’s.

Got a lovely table by the fireplace. Crab cakes and oysters tasted fresh! The scallops were cooked perfectly. Great atmosphere. Wine menu could be expanded and guys were looking for more whiskey/scotch options but other than that it was a very nice night. Beautiful space with friendly staff!

Had an absolutely fantastic evening at Timmer's Resort. Visited on a Saturday evening at 7:30pm. The restaurant was full, but we still received wonderful, attentive service from Ellie. The food and drinks were brought promptly. Could not say better things about the service we received on this crazy evening. Would highly recommend the steak sandwich and the eggplant fries.

The waitress did not know what a hand crafted cocktail was. She was not familiar with menu recommendations. Food was average. Small cup of soup and skimpy salad.

We have never been disappointed with a meal at Timmers. Always quality food, with quality presentation. The walleye is outstanding, as are all the dishes. Very comfortable atmosphere. Nice entertainment on Friday nights. Never missed a beat on New Years Eve.

This was our first visit under the new ownership group and we enjoyed our visit. Our visit was for New Year's Eve and therefore they had a smaller menu of items to choose from. We had the small filet and the parmesan crusted grouper, both were flavorful and big portions (probably more than needed). Kim was our server and she was attentive and helpful. The ambiance is always great with the fireplaces roaring while the snow was falling outside. Definitely will be stopping back again to check out the regular menu.

Went for New Year’s Eve. Inspire of horrible weather we were so glad we went. Food was amazing as usual, we were seated promptly, the staff took our picture at the nicely decorated fireplace and the meal came out correct as the flavors were amazing, finished off with coffee and dessert.

We love Timmer’s. It is one of our favorite places to go for dinner on Saturday night. We enjoy the patio dining in the summer and the big old fieldstone fireplace in the winter. Great food and atmosphere!

We love this restaurant and always have had great food and great service. The food was great for all 4 of us and we hadn’t seen each other for a long time so we sat at the table after dinner for a long time. No one rushed us out and even kept asking if we needed water or coffee. Class act we will be back again!!!

We so enjoyed our Sunday Brunch and we were surprised that we were there on a Sunday when the specialty of the this Sunday's brunch was Mexican entrees along with there traditional entrees. The Mexican dishes were as good or better then many of the Mexican restaurants we frequent. The atmosphere was so pleasant and cozy with elegant, subtle Christmas decorations which really put us in the holiday spirit. We have decided to be sure to think of Timmer's for a wonderful dining experience more often in the future.

We wanted to make a trip to Timmer's before the hostess Fran officially retired. It did not disappoint! We stopped in the bar first for a cocktail. They were handing out complementary eggplant with a tomato dipping sauce. It was great!
The food, the service are spectacular. We especially enjoy the calamari appetizer. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and the walleye fish was to die for ! During the winter, the fireplace is stoked and very cozy. The summer lends itself to awesome patio dining. We will definitely be back again.

Timmer's restaurant is in a beautiful setting. The staff is very friendly and efficient. The food is excellent and the service can't be beat. We were there for Thanksgiving which is a very busy time, but it was a relaxed atmosphere and the staff handled it well. I hope Timmer's restaurant continues its excellent service and wonderful food.

Quite simply, Timmers provided the best restaurant meals we've experienced in many, many years. Highly recommended. Only downside was the lighting being a bit too dim.

We were there for the Sunday Brunch. Once again everything was fantastic. I was there a few weeks ago for Dinner. I wanted to try there brunch with was excellent. It had wonderful selection to pick from. This brunch has things you would find at a normal Brunch, but then there are so many different things offered that you may not see at any other brunch. It was a pleasant time and the food was excellent. Knowing the history of Timmer's and going to Timmer's for many years, I also would recommend buying the lovely book they sell on the History of Timmer's. There were so many things that I could remember from when I was a child to later on in my life. So many wonderful memories reading the book along with many laughs as well. This is a wonderful and lovely place to go to. Thank you all once again for a very special visit. See you soon!

We enjoyed our evening very much. Started with cocktails in the bar and moved on to a lovely and leisurely dinner. The grouper and halibut were both delicious. We all raved about the carrots. The schaum torte was spectacular, crispy and not overly sweet. No leftovers here!

One of our party is wheelchair bound and the staff was very alert to making him comfortable. French cuisine was the theme for the Sunday brunch; the pastry was exceptional. Driving through the Kettle Moraine to get there is always a treat. Hope to return when the colors change in fall.
