When in Sanibel, Timbers is always a good place to eat. Went early for dinner and got a great meal off an early bird menu. Just enough of a portion. Salad and bread. Good service.

We chose Timbers for our first dinner on vacation. We liked the idea of "call ahead seating". There was plenty of parking and an elevator to the restaurant level. We were warmly welcomed and the Caribbean decor was much to our liking. The cocktails were...More

We did not eat here, so this is not a review of the dining experience. The reason that we did not eat here is that the restaurant "lost" our reservation. Knowing that Thanksgiving was a busy time, we phoned up 2 days in advance, and...More

The restaurant was full and it appeared understaffed. The staff were hustling, but unable to keep up at 5:45. Food was good. We had just a 10min wait for a table. The wait was longer for cocktauil sauce after our shrimp were served.

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. 😍
