We ate here twice during our stay and the meals were great. We had the lazy mans lobster pie and we also special ordered a lobster pizza (very expensive but worth the money to us)

Great taste and affordable price. I had the cheese burger which was made perfectly. My wife had the haddock and she really enjoyed that as well.

Get out during pandemic. We had a case of cabin fever and then I remembered that they had lots of outdoor seating on the edge of the lake. The haddock sandwich was great. We had Dell for a server and she was excellent. Great sense...of humor. We will be coming back againMore

Staff practiced social distance also with masks. We ate upstairs for dinner and the server and bartender were great. The menu has many choices and it tasted great with a great price.

The friend food is really good but I don't think there is much on the menu that isn't friend. We would only stop if we are looking for friend seafood. In all fairness, it has been awhile since we stopped in so perhaps they have...added to the menu. Friendly and efficient staff and the place is really clean.More

My wife and I stopped in for dinner on the weekend. The restaurant was not busy. Our server was average - notwithstanding the time she spent on her cell phone. My wife and I were both really, really disappointed in our entire experience. This unit...is on a very short list of places that we will never, ever visit again. This restaurant frankly needs some serious restaurant consulting asap. Cyndi's is a restaurant concept that simply doesn't work, and the service experience is akin to just going through the motion - 'same as it ever was'. Prices are very high given the quality of the food, presentation, and dining room 'atmosphere' - or lack thereof.The location is outstanding though - directly on the lake. All food in the dining room is served on thin paper plates and red plastic baskets. While this works for an ice cream stand at the beach - it just doesn't work when the Wedge Salad is $13, mostly iceberg, spread over a paper plate....and just awful. Cyndi's serves tortilla chips and generic salsa to start in a red plastic basket - stale, mundane, and very tacky. Water is served in 'dixie' paper cups. Who does that?? The Clam Chowder was not homemade - but similar to any canned clam chowder you'd find in the supermarket....very few clams...minced...and $8. Sandwiches come with no side - and again - are priced at the $11 range....you guessed it ...served on thin paper plates. The decor and seating are extremely tired ... with a used Glade fragrance sitting on the restroom urinal to greet you - and tile floors that are black and haven't been mopped in months. If this restaurant was anywhere else - with any competition - it just wouldn't make it. It's a shame - because it is a great location. If you're in the area - 'just say no to Cyndi's' - and if you're boating - just bring your own sandwiches.More

On our way back home from S Paris and finally stopped in for lunch. We split a seafood combo and had clam chowder. Food was good. Splitting the combo was the right call but if we were hungry I would gotten 2 combos. 3 scallops...and 7 fried clams and a mountain of fries. Good flavor but not a great value.More
