Went to Cindys on Sunday and was very happy to see them open. Ordered clams and onion rings and the wait was less in ten minutes! The clams were fresh and you can tell the oil that they were fried in was fresh as they were a light golden brown. The tartar sauce is homemade and combined with the clams,... More

Ordered fried clams to be taken home. Very disappointed in the batter the clams were in. Being in New England you expect the clams in crumbs - which they were done that way a long time ago at Cindy's. The clams were way over cooked but there was a huge amount of them along with soggy fries and so so... More

Heard this place was great but found otherwise. Portions were very small. Food was good but we all left hungry. Lobster roll was small with only a handful of fries. At 18 bucks I expected a little more, Same goes for the scallop and clam plates. Won't be going back!

Cindys has the best fried clams in town! As someone who has gone to Cindys every year I can say that the food is fantastic and the casual atmosphere is great. Bob Tuttle is the owner and is often on hand either behind the counter cooking or chatting up the customers. There is something to be said about a place... More

Average and not very generous portions of standard fried fare. Fried clams not even served with a lemon wedge. Location is roadside, not on the water. Keep driving.

I visited alone on August 12 and with the family on August 14 while we were staying in Freeport. The $13.95 lobster rolls were fantsastic - lots of fresh lobster meat with just a little mayo on a toasted hot dog bun. We had lobster rolls at a 'fancy' restaurant on Wednesday night for a much higher price that didn't... More

We stopped at Cindy's on our way to Bar Harbor. It is a shack right off the highway without any view, a couple of worn picnic tables. but the food had great reviews on yelp, so our expectations for some great food were high. With the rundown shack and poor location, I was surprised by the prices ($18.75 for a... More
