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.

Second Thanksgiving at Timmers. Great place to start the holiday spirit. Feels like you should pull up in a sleigh. Brunch is wonderful. Serve friendly and efficient even though they were very busy.

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.

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.

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.
