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 bland. My husband said the mashed... 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.

Had a nice dinner when I had to travel through on business. Stayed at the lovely Wolf Cove Inn and Cyndi's was the closest restaurant. Burger was good (I don't eat seafood) and service was good.

This is a darling place in Poland, ME with a great deck overlooking the docked boats on the lake. Unfortunately it was pouring rain the first day we went and then again two days later -- yes, we went twice in three days! I'm a lobster junky and eat it every chance I get. The lobster roll at Cyndi's was... More

Another business run by the Poland Spring resort. I would steer clear of it if you have a choice. Sounds like it would be a good stop for seafood but I think they may serve what they catch in the dirty little pond.

I can not give Cyndi's a long review because I have little to say for or against. 8:30 on a thursday night as we arrived in town... The menu has a bit of everything. Very typical diner type food. We ordered fish, chowder, salad, a burger, onion rings. everything was okay. It was food. sorry

Close your eyes and imagine a crystal clear lake with a restaurant on the shore, with canoe and boat rentals, tables to eat at along the shore, the sun shining, and the food is great! What more can one ask for? My wife had the tuna wrap which was perfect and I had the lobster roll on a grilled bun... More
