A great place to watch the lake, waterfowl and have a lobster sandwich. If you wish to boat, whether pedal or rowboat, it is a super location just to sit and relax.

We had good service and the food was very good. There were a few mix ups, but nothing that was a deal breaker. I didn't give this a 5 due to the fact that everything was served in a takeout manner. All the drinks were in paper cups and the meals were in plastic baskets lined with paper. Considering the... More

I had the clear lobster salad (sans mayo) with a side of butter....like the locals. Delish! Depending on your table it has a nice view of the lake.

Cindy's is the place to go if you want good fast pub food. If you can get a seat upstairs on the deck, there's a nice view of the lake. Sitting under the trees next to the lake is nice too, but there is not always service. I always get the grilled chicken sandwich with pesto Mayo and a side... More

Had a lobster roll done right - all lobster and nothing else. It came with tasty fries and good coleslaw. What else do you want in Maine in the summer?

This was our 19th hole dinner and drinks on the outside deck. the mini shore dinner was very good as was the haddock. The service was very good and the prices are reasonable with decent portions.

We rented pedal boats at the boathouse there. Great service and experience. Then headed up to Cyndi's and sat on deck. Was earlier in evening so no crowd yet. Get the clearmeat option- its a whole lobster shucked and placed in toasted bun. I eat a lot of lobster rolls and this was at the top of my list of... More

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.

Thank Angela R

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!
