While on a trip to attend a memorial service we chose to have dinner before seeing family. This was the perfect choice. Their winter menu of 12 for $ 12 was amazing. I chose a shrimp dish that was creamy and spicy and served hot!...More

When Timothy's restaurant moved from the Gordon Inn to the new, larger digs on Red Arrow Highway, I was skeptical that they could transfer their menu and service magic as well. I was wrong. They've brought back most of the reliably knowledgeable and friendly servers,...More

A friend selected Timothy's for dinner last weekend and as soon as we walked in, I could tell it was a great selection. There are two rooms-the casual bar and the California cool main dining room. Service was excellent; the menu has Asian themed food...More

We love the food! We love the menu. Fire roasted tomato soup is to die for! Some portions are way too big and for someone that enjoys appetizer and a main course we only wish they were smaller. Our waitress was awesome and very informative....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."
