The patio was delightful and so was our server Mikala. The eggplant fries were crispy and delicious. Entrees we're filet, done to perfection, crab cakes, tasty and flavorful and the Cesar salad with grilled salmon which was great. A definite hot spot.

Our second time to Timmers. Took my Mom there for her Birthday. She loved it. First time was for the Friday Fish Fry with friends. Great experience, great food, great service, and beautiful outdoor patio with view of Big Cedar Lake.

It was a delightful surprise! Cute heart confetti on our table. A sweet greeting from our waitress. And a surprise serving of Shaum Torte for dessert!
A perfect evening out❤️

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.

Good prime rib, and new York strip. Scallops with risotto just so so. Clam chowder wasn't typical chowder, more of a soup.

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.

Prime Rib was delicious and also a generous serving. My Wife had the Shrimp pasta which was also delicious. The garden salad was small but good. I had the bread pudding with whiskey sauce for desert.

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!

Outstanding high-level menu eclipses other Wisconsin supper clubs, including mussels, oysters, escargot appetizers; full line of steaks, seafood and other dishes, fine dessert selection snagged us for longer stay. Abundant nightly specials means chef is on his toes. Patio dining has idyllic view of Timmins Lake. We'll be back!

We had a good experience overall. Love the location and the ambiance. The prep area was nearby and got a little loud when they were throwing the silverware into their drawers - but other than that it was wonderful. The food was tasty and not too pricy.

We were not from the area, but someone had mentioned Timmer's Resort as a possible meeting place for brunch. I mad the reservations online and we were extremely satisfied with the food, the seating and the servers. It was a very enjoyable experience and I would visit again if I was in the area.

I've been to Timmer's 3 times now and this was certainly the charm. The food was better than ever (Prime rib special) and you can't beat the ambiance. We had a party of 6 old friends and it was agreed across the board that this was a great pick.

Lovely setting, wish we'd known about this place when we were planning our wedding. Would have made wonderful pictures. This is what I said to my in laws as we walked up to the door.
We arrived early for the reservation, and the hostess quickly showed us to a table with a smile. The restaurant was quiet, and full of mostly older couples. Fine with me on all counts, really appreciated the quieter setting.
We all got the prime rib special, my mother in law and I chose medium, and my husband and father in law chose medium well.
The meal came with soup or salad, we all chose the salad. It was mixed greens and a few croutons, with dressing on the side, which I really like. The warm rolls came out a few minutes later. They had a delightful crust, and were warm and fluffy inside.
The prime rib was served in slices, au jus on the side, with green beans, tiny round carrot balls (for lack of a better description - they were in an herb butter and delicious!), and a serving of mashed potatoes. I was certainly full after that, with the salad, beans, potatoes, and carrots all on the reasonably small side. Nice not to have gargantuan portions.
Then the strawberry schaum torte was served - a scoop of vanilla ice cream, topped with thinly sliced stawberries, the schaum was off to the side, also topped with strawberries, and a small dollop of whipped cream nestled between the two. It was a perfectly satisfying end to a lovely meal. The waitress even held my husband's dessert, as he got paged for work right before it came out. All in all, a lovely meal.
