The website of the restaurant led me to believe the place had an upscale look. The place is a bit dated in it's look. But the food was really good. I got the crab cake and was pleased.

Timbuktu is great for seafood and excellent service. Huge parking lot. I recommend it for weekday lunches. The star of the show is the meat filled crab cake.

Passing through Baltimore, friends took us to Timbuktu for a real seafood lunch. The crab cakes are one of their specialties and they did not disappoint. Also sampled the steamed cherrystone clams. Large portions, great side options, priced right due to the quality.
