We have been to many places for fish but we always compare it to Timmers so we stopped going anywhere else! The fish fry especially the walleye is great but I always have the pan fired sautéed walleye. Cole slow potato panckes everything is perfect.

Timmer's has always been our first choice for a nice relaxing dinner. On New Years Eve was no exception. The singer in the bar was wonderful. The bartenders are always attentive. The food has never disappointed us. If you are looking for a quiet , relaxing, or romantic evening you must visit Timmer's. And don't forget to top off your... More

My husband and I first started going here for special occasions. We now create special occasions just to dine here. The food is consistently flavorful and inventive. They pour an excellent drink. The venue is beautiful in all seasons. Their holiday brunches have some thing for the young and picky eaters. Their staff is knowledgeable and pleasant. When there is... More

Super staff, service, good. Lovely location on the east side of Big Cedar Lake. Looking forward to enjoying the wonderful outdoor patio when it warms up.

The food is generally good. The restaurant is fine dining, but not white linen, so to speak. The dining room is a single room, and can be crowded. This is a resort, and the area around the restaurant is charming. The place has a nice bar area, and the staff is very friendly.

Celebrated a birthday at Timmers Resort. While the food was good for the most part, it was the little things that subtracted stars from the total experience. For example, we arrived at 7PM to find the reception area empty. We wandered into the bar looking for a hostess, none available. Back to the desk at the entrance, no one there.... More

We visited Timmer's on a Saturday night in late October with another couple. While the others enjoyed a drink at the bar with the attentive and friendly bartenders, I took my excellent Old Fashioned down to the water's edge for a little stroll before our 5:00 reservation. Once seated, we were greeted by Bonnie, our server, who was wonderful all... More

We've only ever ate here on Friday nights for their fish fry. Regular fish fry and the corn flake fish fry are equally as good, and I am super picky on my fish fries! You can also ask for a combo of both kinds. Scenery is beautiful. Great place to eat outside on a summer evening. My only complaint is... More
