We used to love Timothy's when it was in it previous location at the Gordon Beach Inn. It was our go-to spot for special occasions and with out-of-towners. Although their new location on the highway is very modern and pretty, it is LOUD. I mean,...More

Which was worse, the seafood or the service? Hard to tell. But after enduring this dreadful experience, my wife said, "I can't wait to get home and brush my teeth." She had the "salmon"--which was anything but fresh. In fact, it had probably been in...More

We have been going up from Chicago to Michigan for years. We try to make it to Timothy‘s at least several times a year. Two years ago Timothy’s moved from a quaint little boathouse style location to a new, more modern, and beautifully decorated place....More

New location on Red Arrow. Wonderful space inside and out. Full, electric menu and two bars. Timothy's has become our go-to restaurants when in Harbor Country.

Delicious food. Great service. The chef is the also the owner and he has curated an incredibly flavorful menu that is perfectly portioned. I had the horseradish white fish and my husband enjoyed the Ahi Tuna special and a strong cocktail. We finished the evening...More

This was an interesting place, not what I expected exactly, in this location, and the décor seemed rather odd to me. It was much larger than I thought it would be, and quite busy for a Tues. night in August. The food was generally good,...More

No. This area is full of travelers and they go as they are. It is not a fancy restaurant but '30's, rustic place with lots of ambience of yesteryear.

My philosophy on food and business is simple and straightforward. Always use the finest and freshest ingredients possible, nothing less. Create flavors that contrast but, at the same time, compliment each other. Combine textures and colors... and pay special attention to the presentation of all. And, finally, take care of your customers; good service is just as important to a restaurant's success as the food it serves. Eating should be one of the great joys in life. At Timothy's, our goal is to fulfill that promise. We want you to leave having had a wonderful dining experience... and wanting to come back."
