A bit out of the ordinary

Food is excellent, even though a little quirky. No table service. Noise level VERY high, at least at peak lunch hour.

This was our first visit to Cyd's. Not off to a good start with an unfriendly person behind counter. When you place your order, the food is brought out to you. It's self service & up to you to find the silverware, napkins & water. Pick your spot and they will bring your food to you. We selected outdoor seating... More

Yes, it's a noisy crowded place. But the food is so delicious, healthy and different it is hard to stay away from Cyds. Prices are a bit steep and there's no table service but the quality and taste of the food is beyond compare. Lots of choices can be taken home so you actually don't have to eat there. They... More

Cyd's is a special spot! They have great food that is prepared with care and quality. I love the turkey club and their gourmet burgers. The pepper fries are also very good! A tip for the bachelors: they also have pre-prepared food that you can take home and heat up for meals later in the week - lasagna, quiches, enchiladas,... More

Cyd's is a wonderful lunch spot. Don't expect table service, it's not that kind of place. DO expect delicious, and sometimes ingenious, dishes and a great selection of wine, beer and non-alcoholic beverages. It's modern and clean, yet comfortable and inviting all at the same time.

We ate dinner here recently on a Monday night with family. The menu is somewhat limited and they stop taking dinner orders at 6:45. The food is well prepared, but expensive for what you get. The person taking our order at the counter wasn't exactly mean, but I wouldn't call her friendly either. She seemed somewhat annoyed or bothered. This... More

Cyd's has excellent food and seems to have a good customer base, but I think it is overpriced. If Cyd's were not located on the affluent north side of Peoria, it would probably not be as successful as it is. The décor is OK, but a bit stark, in my opinion. I have never been disappointed in the food, but... More

Four of us had lunch at Cyd's in July. Enjoyed the food and tempted to buy some dessert to go, but refrained as we were stuffed. Good sandwiches and salads.

Took an out of town friend to Cyd's for lunch today. She got a Greek salad and said that it tasted good. She needed an extra dressing as the first dressing was only a 2 tablespoon serving, not enough for the size of the salad. To get an extra dressing would cost 75 cents plus tax, so 83 cents. It...
