    Upset that my reservation was to be under the heated Beach deck but we were put in a table with no cover and we're very cold within 1 hour of our stay and had to leave. The band was not loud enough, we were right in front of it and we couldn't even hear her singing.

    Great Oktoberfest food. A bit disorganized hostess and serving staff. Reservation table was moved after we were to be seated. No silver wear, napkins or water was offered or provided until after all of our food had arrived.

    Our visit was on a surprisingly cool Saturday morning 1st thing when they opened and the dining room was reserved for a private party. So we had to sit outside near the bar, but they turned on the overhead heater for us so we could warm up quickly! Two of us ordered the Octoberfest Sausage Platter which was chock full of 3 different sausages, German potato salad and sauerkraut - so much food for the money!! One of us was from Texas and she thoroughly enjoyed her whole experience.

    I have enjoyed the dining deck with friends for lunch. I wanted to be near the water and I wanted it quiet enough that we could have a nice conversation. The food is always delicious, and the service friendly.

    No host or hostess to seat us on outdoor deck… had to go to indoor desk to find someone to seat us & acknowledge our reservation. Seated for 15 minutes & no service. Our server made cocktails for people who sat themselves at the bar arriving after us. I tried to make eye contact but he ignored our table, so we left. Poor management & no customer service.

    Service: Our server was great. It was clear they were short staffed, but she was as quick as she could be. Got our order right away and was attentive throughout! Kudos to her running her butt off non stop!! Food: Lindy's Landing is hit or miss lately. Last night, the calamari was barely edible-breading falling off. I'm honestly not sure if it was over or under cooked. Breading said under, but rubbery texture said over. My burger was ok. My husband's steak was over-cooked and more fat than meat....and a complaint from him about fat is saying something because he loves a good fatty steak! The people are nice. The atmosphere is nice. But $82 for and "edible" dinner for 2 with one glass of wine and one coke.....not really worth another visit.

    We had a very nice family dinner on the beach and watched the kids play. Our waitress was very attentive and our food was all very delicious! I highly recommend the mai tai , made perfectly. I tried the fish fry and it was super delicious with the bang bang sauce. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the special bacon jam burger!

    I went with my 6 year old and sat at a beach table. The food was amazing but the best part was watching my daughter play in the sand and shallow water. She even took a break and ate some grilled cheese! On top of it all, the service was amazing.

    Love the atmosphere, the music, the friendly staff and most of all being able to make reservations although 90 minutes is not quite long enough when its crowded and you want a drink and appetizer before the meal.

    We've always enjoyed Lindy's though some of the new changes while nice in appearance lack in customer service. We find the restaurant empty quite a bit because they are holding tables for upcoming reservations. It seems to me when you have present paying patrons they should be seated. We also asked to move an umbrella to cover us from the sun. It was currently next to an empty table. They were unwilling to move while the table sat empty our entire meal.

    Introduced a friend to Lindy's and she will be back with her family-- she loved the 'cottage' look, etc. We hadn't seen each other for 2 years and we were able to sit outside on the dining deck for 2 hours, just catching up! Server was attentive, food was wonderful (including my 'stand-by' Bang-Bang Shrimp). Raspberry lemonade was refilled and enjoyed. My only sadness is that we were too full for desert! One of my favorite places.

    We were seated right after arriving. Server took our order relatively quickly. Food was very good-two in the party ordered fish and chips which was tasty, another ordered BBQ pork Mac and cheese which was excellent. Cookie skillet for desert was very good. And there was no skimping on the alcohol as the drinks we had were quite strong. The view of the lake and comfortable weather made the bday dinner a wonderful experience. We will definitely visit again

    We waited for 25 minutes for a waitress to come to our table when I finally went to the hostess and asked where our waitress is. She came back and said so sorry she was not aware that the waitress for our section was cut early. The waitress that filled in was amazing, but very swamped. Our food finally came and it was ok. We have had food here in the past and was always amazing, this time only two meals out of our 7 were good.

    They were out of everything I tried to order, which was odd for a Sunday. Also we were swarmed by bees the whole meal, making it really annoying to eat. Definitely a lackluster experience. The waitress was very sweet and did a great job, and the reggae band was fun to listen to. It was really cold outside, which obviously they can’t control. Overall, a really meh experience.
