Sorry but service not so good this time. Also was served hardly baked potato so sent it back. Next one was ok. Also said omit rice but got it anyway. I think computer system doesn’t handle adjustments well. Biggest issue: price of glasses of wine astronomically high. $14.50 for white and $19.50 for red. Crazy!

Always a great evening sitting on the deck and gazing out at the lake and boats. Feels like you are on vacation. Our server Jenna was great and food was good as always. Will be back again....in a few weeks!

Been there a few times over the last year. Food hasn’t come back to ‘19 quality; and for the price is just not there. It appears they remodeled to fix something… but it’s the food that’s lacking not the place. Everything else is great about Lindy’s we love it, but hope the food comes back.

This is a great local restaurant with a beautiful lakeside location. The restaurant has undergone recent upgrades and is very nice. The service was excellent and all seven of us enjoyed our dinner!

Once again - a wonderful, social time at Lindy's Landing.
Great food, excellent service, fabulous environment.

I even hate to mention a tiny issue - but - you are asking......
the music is a bit too loud.....
I even saw some people change tables because they were by the speaker.

I go to Lindy’s regularly because the food is good and the scenery is great- right on the lake and beach!
The mood can vary between peaceful and energetic depending on the crowd and weather.
When I was there yesterday, it was bright and sunny, so the beach was very active, and it was a lot of fun!
I recommend the grilled salmon, Cali wrap, or the pork sandwich! So good!
And the blueberry Collins is delicious!

There was a private party while we were there and they were obnoxious. They reved very loud motorcycle s continuously and we could even talk to each other.bplus it was all smoky from the motorcycle burning the tire standing in places. There were alot of people standing around drinking and smoking that were very loud and drunk. One person fell down the stairs and the ambulance had to come. Think she broke her nose. I think they should let u know when u book if there is a private party

Outstanding find along Bangs Lake in Wauconda. Variety of choices from high end dinners to burgers and wraps. Always great food and they feature some local brewery and wine choices. It’s a winner! So glad it’s in my town.

This is the second time I’ve been here in 2 weeks and the service is not great. The first time we dined al fresco our table was assigned to the bartender to wait on us. I’m not sure who decided this was a good idea, but the service was terrible.

Today one table over, the service was marginally better. The food is adequate, but not outstanding. Its all about the view here. Honestly, I feel that this restaurant is understaffed. It wi be awhile before we go back.

We love Lindy’s! We brought our out-of-town guests for a night on the patio and Lindy’s did not disappoint. The Bang Bang Shrimp was a HUGE hit!

Service was outstanding. Our server Hannah was excellent. We can’t wait for our next trip to Lindy’s!

Because of the weather I decided to change our reservation to indoors. I had never been indoors before. It was so very noisy. This was not due to anyone being loud. But the acoustics.

We won't be dining again indoors! I'd recommend Lindy's to friends only for outdoors.
