Timbuktu Restaurant and Lounge in Hanover is one of those reliable neighborhood spots that locals visit week after week, year after year. A family-owned, family-friendly local institution, Timbuktu has been serving up crab cakes, Italian dishes and thick-cut steaks for decades.
During happy hour, you can pick up a domestic draft for $3, crafts for $4, and rail drinks for $5, along with apps and bar baskets for just a few dollars more. At dinner, the crab cakes are definitely the most popular item on the menu. But if you’re feeling hungry and want to branch out a bit, don’t miss the daily specials: lobster on Monday, shrimp and barbecue on Tuesdays, chops and ribs on Wednesdays, and catch of the day on Thursday. In addition to the dining room, Timbuktu also operates a deli, convenience store, bottle shop, and banquet room for special events. This place even ships crab cakes nationwide!
