Very rustic looking restaurant, and kind of a kitschy tiki hut decor, but the food was really great. I had the seared ahi tuna, and the smoked salmon appetizer. Good food and the wait staff was good.

This place was great. Reasonable prices, delicious shrimp and grouper. We ate on the bar side of the restaurant. There's a bar side and a "fancier" side. Basically two restaurants in one building operating out of one kitchen. Bar side is cheaper and more of...More

Timbers is always one of our favorite places to eat on the island. We love to go for their early bird specials as well as getting fresh seafood from the fish market to take back to the condo and fix for dinner.

A trip to Sanibel wouldn't be the same without a dinner at Timbers. Fresh seafood, and their steaks never disappoint. We've been going there for years and the food is always consistent.

Very good food. . I had shrimp scampi and oysters Rockefeller. The setting was very lovely...the service was not. Our waiter dropped off the food and that was the last we saw him. I really dislike having to get my own refills

I am not sure they have early bird. The standard early bird in Sanibel is about 5-7, some times later in the summer, people want to stay on the beach until the last possible minute. 😍
