    The service was excellent and the choices on the menu were outstanding and that includes the choices of the day. Timmers is a very romantic upscale restaurant with a flair of being layed back. We will come back again and again.

    Busy night and service was good. Good food, but drinks seemed watered down. Second round was better but you could tell it was cheaper rail not call. Overall - good but would expect better. Worth the drive for the venue and service!

    Appetizers and first drink were delicious! Soups were good. Second round of drinks were terrible. Somehow got mixed up with our order. Waitress brought another round , but not as good as the first. Very light on the old fashioned mix. Dinner came. Seared scallops were not cooked as I had requested, and they were lukewarm. Risotto was over peppered and lukewarm. Asparagus were very salty. My husband’s ribeye was done to perfection, as were his onion rings and veggies. Also, the drinks were only 3/4 full and overpriced. The head waiter apologized for my food and said he would tell the chef about the seasoning, and the undercooked scallops. I know it will be a long time before we give Timmer’s another try.

    Had a United way event going on and tent blocked view down to the lake. Wouldn’t have come that night if we had known that. Servers seemed backed up and had to wait a long time just to order drinks and get water. Just wasn’t a relaxing evening, menu too small and didn’t have the ambiance we were used to.

    We enjoyed a tasty meal, with nice portion sizes, in a pleasant setting. That said, we were disappointed by the lack of attention to my wife’s gluten free requirement. We noted that she is gluten free on the reservation and upon first contact with our server. They did provide gluten free crostini with our appetizer, which was very good. But then served her a salad with croutons on it and the Canadian walleye was served with what appeared to be a light breading which my wife scraped off. As a result I wasn’t inclined to post a better rating.

    It was my sons birthday and 3 of our party received our food, my son did not. After waiting 10 minutes we asked about the missing meal and our waitress told us there was a screw up in the kitchen and she would bring his meal when complete. Understandable, but we should have been told this when the other meals were delivered. I had the Prime Rib sandwich and asked for no onions or mushrooms. It came without as requested but the sandwich was also missing the cheese that it was supposed have. Also, the amount of beef on the sandwich was pretty sparse. Two of our party ordered the chicken and the portion was very small for the money. The beef barley soup was pitiful. Very little stock and it looked like it had seaweed in it. We have been to this restaurant several times in the past but this time was a disappointment after spending nearly $200 for a party of 4.

    Sat outside on a beautiful evening with some relatives visiting from California. We’ve all been there before and will certainly be back! The scallops, salmon, walleye, prime rib sandwich & beet salad were all superb. We had just enough appetite left to share some turtle cheesecake and raspberry sorbet. Audra was great and added to our fantastic evening.

    Our family of 5 celebrated my husbands birthday last night- we had a wonderful experience from start to finish!!!! Tiffany was our server last night- she was super amazing!!!!! What a nice surprise to be seated at a table with birthday confetti, and my husband was treated to a birthday dessert. I grew up in West Bend, and it has always been a treat to go back to Timmers when we have the chance.

    Wait staff, couldn’t be nicer and more accommodating-just lovely. Ambience, off the charts. The burger, asked for whatever left the middle a little pink and was assured that “medium” would do the trick. There was no pink. That’s my only quibble…an otherwise spectacular evening!

    We stopped at Timmers for an early meal after an event not far away. We had a drink in the bar beforehand and the bar staff was friendly and attentive. We were able to get seated in the dining area promptly and the server was quick to serve us. We started with the spinach and artichoke dip, served with toasted baguettes, very tasty, but maybe just a tad too much melted cheddar. We each had a salad as our meal starter which was just right - not too much, not too little. I opted for the swordsteak special while my wife tried the scallops. The swordsteak was grilled and had a good flavor but unfortunately had a bit of a burnt grill taste to it and the center was cool. Was it cooked from frozen? I don’t know. My wife enjoyed the scallops, which were served with grilled asparagus and parmesan risotto - very good. The swordfish was prepared with seasoned summer squash which was seasoned great and tasted great. Also came with wild rice. We did advise our server that the swordfish was less than my expectations. She offered a substitute but we declined. Overall this is a great place with indoor and outdoor dining options and the food is usually very good. Cocktails and beers are reasonably priced and meal prices are good as well. I would recommend this restaurant and we will go back again, but likely will try another dish.
