Cyndi's is a modestly priced family style restaurant. The offer a American menus... I like the seared haddock and the scallops. Finish off with an ice cream at the take out window. Highly recommend.

Stopped here for dinner it was very busy with a large group so I was worried about it taking forever but they did great. We were greeted immediately and seated upstairs near the bar. My son loved the clam chowder and I ordered a salad. Food was good and service was quick and friendly.

We enjoyed this thoroughly. And not just because we were really hungry!! Very casual dining. They have a full bar on the second floor. It's not a "bar scene" but it was comfortable and everyone was really friendly and accommodating. Nice view of a lake. We are their first before going to Shaker Village.

We came in with 7 family and were seated immediately. It was very busy on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. The entire place seemed understaffed. Our waiter took a long time to get to us because he was overworked. We understood because of the busy time. We placed our orders quickly as we knew it was so busy. Our order didn't... More

We rented kayaks from Cyndies Dock Side, with everything you need for fun on the water. After hours of exploring, the lake we worked up a hunger for food. Back on shore, we simply walked over to Cyndies Dock Side Restruant. What a variety of seafood. Baked or fried, fresh and tasty, meat or seafood, meal or lite fare. We... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants to go to when I go to Maine to work and stay at my moms house near Poland Springs. They serve only the best and freshest local products.

Second time we've been to Cyndi's, first time for dinner. My husband ordered the clam chowder, which was very good, and then he had the fried clam dinner with potato wedges. I ordered the lazy man's lobster with seasoned rice and corn. The corn was brown in color and tasted as bad as it looked (obviously from a can and... More

Stopped by after a fun day at Oxford Casino. I read some of the reviews prior and it looked like the haddock was the dish to order. We all decided to get the haddock, 1 baked and 2 pan fried. The fish was fresh and very tasty, but it wasn't haddock. At least the 2 pan fried ones were not,... More

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!
