About the restaurant
The Landing was first established in 1972 and has withstood the test of time and the elements. Located on Marblehead Harbor our "On the Water Harbor Views" can't be beat. Chef Noe Ortega brings culinary excellence to each dish and our service is comforting and professional. Our Deck and Patio offer great views and atmosphere with Fresh Seafood right form the dock. 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.

Our James Beard Nominated restaurant group is situated directly on the edge of the pier with panoramic views of the downtown Boston Skyline.

The views from the restaurant are stunning, as is the interior design of the restaurant itself. Our waiter was very knowledgable and also very patient with my kids' many questions! You could tell he was passionate about the food there as well. The cocktails were creative without being too fussy and even the non alcoholic offerings were sophisticated. The mussels were delicious with a touch of spice for the broth. The pasta dishes were all outstanding- even better than we expected. We came for a birthday and told the restaurant in advance and they brought a selection of delicate and flavorful desserts with one candle, which was celebratory and also not over the top. This is a special spot (and a little difficult to find if it's your first time here)!

About the restaurant
A spectacular oceanfront restaurant featuring fresh local cuisine - lobsters, swordfish, clams, scallops, seasonal fin fish, steaks, and salads. Constructed of wood taken from ship wrecks and boards from old buildings, Landfall"s dining room is authentic Cape Cod. Your table is directly over the water. Serving lunch and dinner. Celebrating our 77th season. We will attempt to accommodate specific table requests, but they are not guaranteed. If Open Table says we are full. Most time we have room.
