Relax with us at the Dockside in a lakeside setting on Middle Range Pond on the Route 26 causeway. Wholesome food served in a setting that is like an oasis. The most friendly staff with an environment filled with laughter and warmth. A menu that includes daily specials, delicious appetizers, sandwiches, Harvest Hill Farm’s burgers, lobster, seafood (Try the Haddock basket – delicious!), chicken, steak dinners and our delicious desserts. Your family will love it!

Good food, Good service

My husband and I went there at an off-time...around 3 PM. The downstairs was closed so we had to eat upstairs near the bar. I had fried clams and scallops. The scallops were perfect but the clams had a little too much coating. The onion rings were great but the butternut squash was rather... read more

The food was okay, the price was okay, but nothing special. It's ur typical frozen foods fried up when you order. But when you stay at the resort and miss one of their meal times it definitely is better than starving!

If you like fried haddock, this is the place to enjoy it! Sitting in the downstairs dining room with the fire roaring in the fireplace, looking out onto Lower Range Pond, eating fresh, perfectly cooked haddock ~ can't beat it!

This place is a combination of tourist place right on the lake and local good food. The prices are higher, but only compared to the dirt cheap restaurants in the area. The price is well worth the food and the atmosphere. We had my parents 60th anniversary here and it was sweet and the staff is accomodating. Inside old style... More

We have dined at Cyndi's Dockside many times over the last 3 years and have always been pleased with the food, the service, and the true Maine atmosphere. We have taken family and friends here to dine, including Easter this year. We dined in March with friends on our recommendation...it was delicious. We all had the haddock sandwich...fried and pan...

We started our meal with a bucket of wings (on special) and then all had the steamed lobster. The place was full when we arrived but was empty by 8.30. The food was simple but delicious although I would prefer not to eat from paper plates and drink from plastic cups. The lobster was great value though, even if lacking... More

Cyndi's Dockside is (as you may guess) is on the shore of a lake in Poland Springs, Maine. It's a cute little place with a nice view. We ate dinner with friends one evening and were expecting good food as other friends had recommended it. I was not very hungry so just ordered a tuna salad wrap. The tuna salad... More

We had dinner on a hot summer night on the deck; the server, Dan, was both personable and efficient. The food was just okay, nothing special. When the sun went down we were attacked by mosquitoes and had to make a very quick exit.
