Had just arrived into Sanibel and it was later in the evening. Was welcomed by a wonderful server whose name I wish I could remember. Enjoyed an absolutely sinfully rich blue crab bisque, house salad and a delectable frozen peach beach drink.

Friends and I ate at the Fish Market. One of my friends had wings and onion rings and received outlandish portions. The basket of onion rings was overflowing. All the food we had was delicious and my blackened shrimp salad was especially tasty. The beer is cold. And all the pictures the owner has taken and posted in the restaurant... More

What can I say - we loved it. Everyone loved their meals , from the smoked fish appetizers to the parmesan crusted hogfish. All of the fish dishes were delicious. We even indulged in delicious deserts. (I loved the chocolate bread pudding). Great service (Thanks Sarah!). Love the atmosphere and memorabilia photos on the walls. Hope to get back!

My family wanted delicious seafood when we went to Sanibel Island. We choose timbers as it was recommended by a volunteer in the visitor center. My three family meme bears each got shrimp and absolutely loved it. My son said best shrimp he has had, hands down! I do not like seafood, except for fish and chips but that was... More

We have eaten here quite a few times over the years- the food is good- not great- the clam chowder is by far their best item- the menu is plentiful but tired- they have the same things and rarely change - the food is consistent but I don't really pick this as a first choice anymore- staff is always friendly...
