TIMBERS CLOSES

The Timbers Restaurant at 10 Winchester Canyon Rd in Goleta has closed. I stopped by recently and there was a fence across the parking lot and weeds-o-plenty.

    This has always been a very difficult location for businesses to maintain. The only type of business I can see surviving there is a truck stop/deli kind of place. Best of luck to the next owners.

    Actually, the place sold within 2 days ~1 month ago. I live in the Santa Barbara West mobile home park and the Timbers is on the other side of my back fence. My neighbor went over and met the new owner as the chain link fences were being installed. From what he said, the new owner plans on opening a restaurant there. The new owner did not give specifics, but my neighbor go the impression that it might be some kind of coffee shop/truck stop. We’ll see. FYI From what we have seen, there has not been any activity since the chain link fences were installed.

    In everyone’s minds, the Timbers closed 2-3 years ago. The fact that they actually remained open each day with 2 customers, serving a confusing menu doesn’t mean anything. I want to meet the man that is planning on opening yet another restaurant at that space.

    With the new bridge now open it’ll be easier than ever for people from the business parks to get over for lunch if they can get a decent lunch menu going, we live pretty close too and I welcome a new place.

    I remember eatin at Timbers back in the early ’70′s, and the place was packed! I don’t even remember seeing many houses at that time- It was like getting out of town to go to the timbers. Now that the area is choked with houses, noone can keep a restaurant going- Why is that? Seems like you would have a built-in clientele. I remember having great steaks there.

    I don’t even need that great of food there (but it would be nice), just give me something decent, consistent and reasonable – oh, and let me dine with my dog outside!

    Used to go there in the late 60s. Great food. Two brothers owned it, I believe their names were Louie and maybe George. Louie ran the bar. Place used to pack out. I knew the chef, John or Jack Selvey
