This was a nice spot to eat with family. Great menu and good times with family sharing five different meals. Good food, service and atmosphere make this a must visit!

We arrived around 8:00pm and were promptly seated. After ordering, we received our delicious food in a very timely manner. For $20 -$24 per entree, we received soup, vegetable, a starch and fish. It was tastefully presented and filling.

Went with another couple during the early bird specials. Seafood selection was great and very tasty. Service matched the quality, and we will be back!

Timbers is on our list for each year at Sanibel. Love their baked sweet potatoes and their overhead special ceiling fans. Wait staff is efficient and pleasant. Shrimp dinners good. Just a nice place to dine.

Did not actually eat there but went in for more fish. Our fishing trip did not bag enough to feed twelve since only two of us out of five caught three keepers. However, I managed to "catch" some really fresh grouper at Timbers. Not cheap!

Adequate offerings from kitchen. Shrimp trio was pretty good. Love to mix the New England and Manhattan chowder. Used to be a better restaurant overall.

My husband and I both ordered fish entrees. Both were cooked perfectly. I am fussy about how fish is cooked and it was cooked perfect. The variety on the menu is plenty and the service is very good! I would go back.

Food was average at best. I had the grouper which was nothing to write home about. While we did want to like the place, it really didn't impress to scream come again!

There is a nice selection of fish dishes at Timbers. The servers are reliable sources of menu recommendations, and the food is very tasty.

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. 😍
