There is a circular lobster holding area in the restaurant. I thought the glass enclosure was magnified, but when the lobster that I'd ordered came out, it was the same large size I had been looking at. My lobster dinner came with melted butter, fried onions (could have been french fries), and a paper cup of coleslaw - not too... More

Really nice restaurant. Friendly waitress. Nothing fancy. The food was good. But I really wanted crab cakes but they didn't have them.😞 Try it you will like it.....

We've been to Cyndi's a few times and the food has always been good. My husband loves the fried seafood and my children love the burgers. They make a mean salad too. Evening's inside they have dinner specials, live music and a heck of a view. Enjoy!

We had dinner at Cyndi's dockside on Saturday evening. Fried clams, onion rings, lobster roll to die for. A lake view seat on the outside patio or picnic table area enhanced our experience. No frills dining at it's best!!! Great value for great food!

I'm a local and I finally got a chance to give Cyndi's a try-- food was great, atmosphere fun. I had the mushroom burger with fries and it was delish. My only complaint is how much waste this restaurant produces.... Cocktail sauce in individual plastic containers, paper lined baskets on top of plates, I asked for water and the bartender... More

My last day of my Maine vacation and when I saw the sign "if you are given lemons, order a lobster roll", I knew I found my farewell lunch. My friends had haddock, fried and grilled, which they said was delicious but I had to have that lobster roll and with melted butter, like the natives, not mayo. Delish! The... More

They say all food prepared fresh, so be prepared to wait. The waitress came promptly, but we waited 1/2 hour for the food. The chowder was very salty. I ordered a hamburg, well done. That does not mean it has to be charred. Also, half fell out of the bun. I assume it broke while flipping, and they just put... More

We had the motorhome at a campground nearby and opted for a night out. Cyndi's was a good choice. Beautiful setting right on the water (Middle Range Pond). Picnic tables at the water's edge if you're so inclined. Service was excellent. Our server, Kayla, was friendly and very professional. A nice menu selection - from burgers to lobster. Generous portions... More

Our experience in the Poland area (for good food) has been less than good. This particular place was new to us and I can't say enough about their food selection, atmosphere and especially their service. Our waitress (Jackie) was absolutely delightful - and made up that day to look like Rosie the Riveter. We had a hamburger and fried haddock... 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!
