Along with Steaks, Duck and plenty of Vegetarian and Gluten Free offerings you'll be sure to find what your looking for on our menu. We are on the water in the Historic District and close by Fort Sewall and Crocker Park as well as the Jerimiah Lee Mansion. Great wine and drink lists will accompany the ever changing menus created by Chef Noe Ortega.

    So worth the 1.5 hour drive! Great seafood - grilled oysters were really special and the fish sandwich was perfection! Service made us feel valued! A bit loud but goes well with the environment on a working pier!

    The sauces accompanying the oysters on the half shell were pleasant. Without any sauce, the plain oysters were just the right balance of sweet and salty. The bolognese was mild and meaty, not overpowered by tomatoes — very satisfying.

    Such a wonderful experience from start to finish. The food was excellent, and the staff so pleasant and welcoming. This is the kind of place that they want to know your name and you leave there knowing their names. The mussels were to die for as well as the swordfish entrée. Go. You won’t be disappointed.

    We loved the food and we actually had the oppurtunity to chat with the Chef. Keep in mind it was bit slow but none the less very nice to have the chef make recomendations and he was spot on. I had the Pork Chop and my wife had the Halibut. Overall, highly recommend.

    Lisa, our server was great as always, prompt and friendly. A few older guests and one male waiter were pretty loud and there is a tear in the outside enclosure by our table which cold air was coming in, otherwise, great views and food. Potatoes with Benedict weren’t very hot. Everyone’s food was very good, overall wonderful time, thank you!

    We are regulars with a rewards card. Menu has drastically changed. Portions are miniscule, prices are greatly increased, selection is markedly decreased. Food is delicious, but the pricing means that we will not be visiting so much as we are accustomed. It was particularly crowded early on Saturday because there was a function taking up the entire second dining room. It would have been good to be told this when making our reservation. Any recommendation we make to a friend would be with the above caveats. f

    Landing is super reliable and staff is always friendly! It is a great spot with a wonderful, clean aesthetic. They have great hours and are typically pretty open, which has made it a great go-to spot for us living nearby. My only complaint is i wish the menu was a bit larger, but all the food is delicious and great serving sizes. Thank you Landing!

    This was a business holiday lunch - We were all disappointed that there were so many limitations with the lunch menu, every question or request was met with a "no". Despite contacting the restaurant ahead of time to confirm that they offered a gluten and dairy free menu we found that only some of the items were available at lunch time. For those of us that did not have gluten free or dairy free restrictions, the side options were very limited, fries, garlic bread and mushrooms. There was no rice option or potato options for those that choose not or cannot eat fries. The server did eventually offer a side salad as an option which was simply arugula. We sensed that the chef and restaurant have decided to stick to the menu offered and choose not to make any alterations or accommodations. To end on a positive, I will say that the inside of the restaurant was very nice and the view is beautiful.

    I love this restaurant. The food is great, lots of choices on most important for me, they will accommodate my challenging allergies. It’s the first restaurant I know that reads what I have to say on the reservation before I arrived. They also noted it was my friends birthday and had a little mini cake for her. Outstanding service, thank you to all.

    It was very busy, but our server was as help as she could be. There was a fish truck parked next to the outdoor dining which had to keep running for its refrigeration, but it wasn't anyone's fault, it's a restaurant right next to a dock, which makes for a great view but also sometimes a fish truck. Much nicer ambiance when its delivery via boat finally came in and it was happy to and able to leave. Food was great, the wait was not very long, and the view (after truck left) was beautiful.

    Always deliciously consistent in a good way. I love and prefer raw oysters BUT if I had to pick the grilled option that would sway me away it's the grilled oysters from The Landing. So tasty and the little crunch gives a nice texture to the oysters. I love rabbit so it was great to see a pasta dish with rabbit to add as a shared app. Very good. I wish I tried the sweetbreads but now I have a reason to return before the menu changes. The beet risotto with my steak was unexpectedly delicious. Red risotto is at first odd to see but was very good and perfect color on the plate for fall. My BF loved his salmon with the bok choy and rice. Both plates were clean. Another great dinner at The Landing!

    We sat out on the back porch, and of course, the beautiful view of the water and boats was lovely. We had an excellent waiter, Nick, who is very sweet. That said, we ordered three traditional lobster rolls, and were very disappointed in the small pieces of lobster, and did not care for the recipe, which had too much lemon and not enough mayonnaise. It was an expensive lobster roll with not much lobster in it, so we were all three of us very disappointed. Additionally, there was a lobster truck parked just by the side of the area we were eating in, soit was loud, and disruptive.

    My daughter and I enjoyed our dinner at the Landing. We sat outside on their heated patio and it was perfect. I started with a nice, chilled Pomegranate Martini. We started with a Caesar salad (plenty big enough to be shared). My daughter had Spaghetti Bolognese as her her main dish and I had the Crab and Horseradish Pasta. We both loved our dishes. Highly recommend.
