    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 enjoyed a nice dinner, dining outside on the patio. Our dinners were very good and we had great service! The weather was perfect and the restaurant and grounds are clean, well kept, and beautiful. We will definitely go back to Timmer’s!

    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.

    Timmers is a favorite go to dining location when we have a special occasion or looking to join with friends. Inside or outdoors in the summer we love the ambience. Our food is always delicious. This time we experienced more noise as a group in the bar area right next to the doorway to the main dining room was enjoying a boisterous game game of cards possibly. Usually it is quieter for when we are dining.

    Overall very pleasant experience. The food was delicious and our waitress was fantastic. Wish there were a few more meal options on the menu. Also - it would have been nice to sit in the bar area with a view of the lake. Unfortunately there was music in the bar. While it was very good, it was WAY too loud. We tried to sit in the bar and have a drink and could not even carry on a conversation. It was unfortunate.

    The menu items were highly priced and of medium quality. I ordered a filet mignon. I have had a filet mignon that melted in my mouth for that price. The sides were great. Vegetables were fresh and nicely prepared. My baked potato was nicely done. The mushrooms (on the side) were awesome. We had a tiny glass of white zinfandel wind before dinner. It was all right, but a little disappointing. The service was excellent. The wait staff and others were friendly and conscientious. They checked to see if everything was all right. I am not the kind of person to have the entree returned if it is not as expected. I might not return to Timmers however, in the future. I was treating my mom to her mothers day dinner.

    Short staffed for sure, one hostess who was bussing tables, one very social server which took time away from other customers, one bartender who seemed to keep up with the Trivia crowd in the bar area rather well. Our food was served hot and was delicious! Not our 1st visit and won't be our last.

Our mixed drinks were well made, and the wine list was also very good. Our waiter was Erin, and she was great, very attentive to our needs. We will definitely be coming back soon for dinner.
