We tried this place the last morning of our stay. Big mistake! We ordered 4 breakfasts (at an average $20 a plate). Don't mind paying for a good, hearty breakfast, but we all left feeling as though we could have eaten more. No coffee refills were offered and the cups of tea ordered were put down the the table so hard, the tea spilled out. Two of the four breakfasts we ordered were cold. One of our party asked for a mushroom omelette and was told there were no mushrooms available! Maybe there was a shortage in New York that day! Food, when it eventually arrived was okay, but nothing spectacular as stated on the menu. On the plus side, the waffles were good, although they were lukewarm by the time they arrived. To top it all, our waitress added an "essential" $20 tip to our bill, even circling it off and adding it to our $99 bill, for "excellent" service. Would not recommend this place.

While visiting NYC, we had to stop at Lindy's to try the cheesecake. We decided to eat dinner there too. I wanted to try Yankee pot roast. My niece ordered the mealoaf. Both of our dinners was $20. The mashed potatoes were instant, the gravy tasted like it was from a jar and not even a good brand, the vegetables were frozen veggies. The cheesecake is highly overrated. It is nearly tasteless and much too high priced. For the price, we thought we were going to have something really special. We felt cheated. I would not recommend this place and anyone who thinks they have good cheesecake has never eaten cheesecake anywhere else.

$20 for a mediocre hamburger?!? $9 for a slice of cheesecake?? These people should be indicted for charging such outrageous prices. They get away with it by not posting a menu outside for vulnerable tourists to see before getting ripped off. Shameful!

I went to the location on 7th Avenue and 33rd Street (in the Hotel Pennsylvania) only because my father was staying in the hotel, and we were too tired to walk any place else. Given the quality of the food (extremely bland), the prices are outrageous (see below). The atmosphere was just as bland (verging on depressing), and we had to wait some time to even get menus (despite the fact that the restaurant was only half full). Between the two of us, we had two entrees and three bottles of beer. The bill (without tip): $68. (The only pro: portions are large.) You don't have to walk that far to get a far better meal for less money. So keep walking tourists!

I line in NYC, but not typically in this neighborhood for lunch. But was working here, and needed a place to take an out of towner I was working with. Walking down the avenue, I recognized the name "lindy's" so decided it was worth a shot. First of all the place was swamped with tourists. Ok I can live with that. Second of all both the hostess and the waiter had poor attitudes. I was embarred in front of out of town co-worker to be a new yorker. We looked at the menu and everything was WAY overpriced. Was like $17 fora cheeseburger deluxe. And then to top it all of, the burger was subpar. I don;t recommend this place, unless you are looking to show someone the type of ny restaurant that gave Ny a bad rap...

$3.75 for a cup of coffee? That should be illegal. The cheesecake at 9 bucks a slice was also outrageous. Tourists beware.....

The food is bland and the portions are small compared to it's king size competition. They say their cheesecake is world famous but in my opinion that's only because it's a busy New York corner.
