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.

I am a New Yorker who was in need of a quick meal in the Times Square area right before a Broadway show. Cleverly, there was no menu posted outside the restaurant, but I figured "how bad can it be?" We were seated and given menus and was utterly floored by the prices - sandwiches in the $20 range, and breakfast items (3 eggs) for more than $15. So my partner and I ordered a bowl of soup each @ $7.50 each, and we split a knish @ $6.50. At best, I would describe the food as pedestrian. It is not by any means a fancy restaurant - it doesn't present itself as such (it has a diner atmosphere, and I had duct tape holding together a rip in my booth). One would be better served to go to Olive Garden or Applebee's down the block (as horrified as I am by making that recommendation!). With a couple of sodas, our bill was over $30 for a can of Campbell's soup, a potato, and some soda. Service was polite but excruciatingly slow. A family of tourists left the restaurant completely horrified. This is my first review on MenuPages after years of using the website; the experience was just so ridiculous that I had to take any opportunity to make other potential customers steer clear of the place!
