There are those who love Timbers and those who don't, and a middle-ground of fans that frequent the fish market more often than the sit-down restaurant. Like many places in town, the interior is wooden, rustic, and tropical. Paddle fans and patio umbrellas opened indoors remind you that even though it may be dark out, you're still in a beachy keen location. New England clam chowder and parmesan-crusted sea bass are two menu highlights. We like the locals-heavy vibe and the stone crabs when in season. On Thursdays and Fridays you can take advantage of sushi, sashimi, and raw oysters. Why come here, as opposed to another Sanibel/Captiva seafood restaurant, which are as dime-a-dozen as the Kardashians? The crab bisque, which is creamy and spot-on, with the perfect ration of sherry.
