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.

With lovely weather, it is still a pleasure to eat outside. The staff is always welcoming and professional, masked and socially distanced. The cilantro lime chicken is a fine addition to the menu, a large enough portion that I took the balance home for tomorrow’s lunch.

When we got there , we must have waited close to 15 minutes before the waitress came to take our drink order. It took a while to get our food, but the food was tasty and a good (not great) value for the money. But again waitress did not come back to see if we needed anything and we saw her chatting with the bartender.

The service was extremely poor, it took 25 minutes to receive our drinks, starters were served and we had to ask for cutlery and plates. The entrees that we’re served with fries, they were overcooked and burnt. Our server’s attitude was very cold towards us and never interacted in a friendly manner it felt that is was just an overall transaction and move on to the next table.

We were really looking forward to experiencing this restaurant as it had been recommended to us by our friends so unfortunately our experience has left us extremely disappointed.

We were disappointed in the quality of the food - calamari was not crispy, jambalaya average. Food took a long time to come out and the restaurant did not seem that busy. Servers were polite and attentive.
My first visit to this restaurant was a much better experience.

The food was good, nothing special but not bad. We eat there on occasion. Those in the party had chicken tenders, reuben (which looked very good) and the Cali wrap which was good. But the service was horrible. Our server(began with a "J", sorry don't remember her name) did come in a timely manner to get and serve drinks. But then she disappeared for over 20 min -we had to ask someone to find her for our food order. Food came timely, server cleared table and then disappeared again, even though she knew we wanted the check. Finally, after another 20+ minutes, she gave us our check, only to find it was not ours. She placed someone else's. I understand things like that happen, but this was a check that was already run on a credit card and the credit card was there. We called her over and she was so grateful we had it as she had no idea where she placed their card or receipt.

We are so sorry to hear about this experience with us. At Lindy’s we train our staff extensively with the goal of providing the top-notch service that may set us apart from competing establishments. Unfortunately, I see that was not the case for you. We have spoken to the staff members in question and have taken every measure to assure that this does not happen again. We do have very hard working staff here and some days are more demanding than others, but we hope you give us another chance soon

Lindy's Landing has great food and great service. We were a bigger group and ended up being seated outside of the wind blocking zippered "tent" are, which we were fine with for safety, but it was a little chilly without anything blocking the wind. They do have an option now to sit by a fire after 7pm.
