Loved dining at this "waterfront" restaurant though it was hard to enjoy the view as it was in the middle of winter when we visited. .

It was our anniversary so we wanted lobster. We both ordered the lobster rolls and they tasted funny like either it had been frozen or was not even real lobster.

A friend and I walked up to the order window and inquired about out-door seating; we were directed to picnic tables by the water. We ordered lobster rolls and fries and they were terrible. We were not allowed to order a wine for that area....We later spotted an outdoor deck and inquired as to why that wasn't brought to our attention. We were told there weren't any available seats at the time we asked; but we weren't told about it or given the choice to wait. The communication that transpired was totally lacking in customer service. With both poor quality food and poor customer service, We would never go there again under the same management and staff.More

This rating is for the restaurant overall. The food is sub-par. I would dine at the Poland Springs Resort before this place. The service was terrible. Even though everything was written down, it came out incorrect. Food items were missing or were wrong. They would...announce what they had and you indicated whether you ordered that or not. The staff gave dirty looks when you remove the finished appetizer plates to another used table to make room for the food arriving. Again, this is restaurant 101 (clear dirty plates so that you have room for the next plate). The food was edible. The dining room is small so it gets noisy. I thought that I would be more impressed but it felt very much like fast food vs. a night out dining restaurant. Drive further for a nice dining experience.More

Different members of our party had burgers, NE clam chowder, fish & chips and a lobster roll. All the food was delicious and a good value for the money. Service was friendly and meals were brought out in a timely manner. Highly recommend!

We brought an out of town guest and had the fish Fri, we had not been here for over a year and found the fish changed not to our liking. The batter used to be light , crispy and very flavorful. The batter is now...heavy ,dry and no flavor. The fish was fresh and very good, just did not like the change. Everything else was fine.More

Cyndi’s is right on the water and has two levels of dining which is all family friendly. There is something for everyone on the menu. The server worked hard to make sure everyone on his room was entertained. The only thing I couldn’t understand was...the handicap accessible bathroom, located on the second floor.More

We came with friends earlier in September and had an excellent experience eating at outdoor picnic tables overlooking Range Pond (pronounced rang). We even saw an eagle soaring over the pond. Had a lovely afternoon meal which led us to come back by ourselves a...few weeks later. We live in Saco so it's not a quick trip. Again we ate outside at picnic tables and the seafood was excellent. Delicious fried clams, scallops and haddock, plus wonderful onion rings and sweet potato fries. Prices are reasonable but the quality of the food is what brought us back. Our waitress was Laurie and she was terrific -- had a great attitude, very attentive and personable. I was surprised to find they are open all year so we will be back this winter for indoor dining (we hope!!). Restaurant was consistent about washing down tables and ensuring that people waited until that was done. LOTS of masks everywhere as it should be.More
