Was nice atmosphere. Beautiful restaurant. Waitress was terrible. My husband had to go up to get 2nd drink at bar. She only took order and 1st set of drinks. Other people brought food and appetizers out. She hardly did anything and couldn’t even check to see if we needed anything else.

Large selection of food for the buffet, but a little pricey. Waited quite a while for the bill, and waters could have been refilled more often. The add on mimosa bar was pricey since we had a limited time to stay at our table.

When we first arrived, all of the staff seemed to be confused and unprepared. Our waitress seemed like it was her first day and wasn’t knowledgeable. We were seated outside and it was absolutely freezing. I think the restaurant could’ve been a little bit more prepared with outdoor seating when they knew the weather was going to be cold and rainy. The kept all the outside patio heaters on one side of the patio which was the opposite side of where we were seated. Since this meal was a buffet style, by the time we got our food and brought it outside, all of our food was cold because of the weather. Plus I found a hair in my OJ. Overall, I’m extremely disappointed with our first experience at this restaurant. The price was outrageous for what we dealt with. Plus the 22% gratuity they automatically added, the waitstaff didn’t deserve. They hardly visited our table to clear plates or refill beverages. I would give this place another try (in the summer months & when it’s not a buffet style).

Lindy's has been one of our favorite restaurants to celebrate events at for many years. Using OpenTable usually makes it easy for us to know what our accommodations will be like. Our reservation said it would be High-top seating for 10. I assumed that meant it would be inside dining, probably in the bar since the outside dining was unavailable. When we arrived, the entire inside of the restaurant was closed for a private event. We were seated on a deck that was open to the lake and we were the only group in that area which seemed great at first. When the sun ducked under the clouds and the breezes kicked in, our entire group was cold. We hadn't dressed for eating outside. I will be sure I understand where we'll be seated the next time we make a reservation. The wait staff was terrific and the food very good.

Great place. Only complaint was booking the reservation for seating area. Very confusing. We booked a high top and got a picnic table in the sand, they said it’s explained on their website but unfortunately I booked through Open Table. Service was great and food was good. Just would have rather sat on the deck or under the awning.

I recommend you giving them a try!

Disappointed the fish fry was not up to standards The fish tasted old and dried out. The server was polite but nothing special. The other disappointment was people were not wearing masks and walking on the deck 3 people were ignoring the rules. 2 people walked into the restaurant with no masks on. I did not see anyone challenge them. We have been here before for the fish fry and felt safe not today. Likely will look for another restaurant. There is no point in posting wear a mask if no one from the restaurant says anything when those rules are ignored. No longer feels Safe to eat at Lindys Landing. Lastly we tried to add 2 people to our 2 person reservation and told could not. We sat at a table with 4 chairs. How poor on their part.
