Nothing like sitting at Timmers and looking at the beautiful Cedar Lake while enjoying a cocktail. Fish fry is wonderful as is everything else on their menu. We recently went with a group of 10 ladies and everyone enjoyed their dinners.

The fish fry with potato pancakes is a 9 out of 10. The calamari is the best I've ever had. Love the free s'mores around the campfire. A great place, I'll certainly go to again!

Love this place. The mussels appetizer is outstanding! Had an 8 oz. filet mignon au poivre that was cooked perfectly and tasted delicious. Salad and garlic mashed potatoes were fresh and tasty too. Take a stroll down to the lake after dinner (weather permitting).
