The area has so much opportunity for shops and restaurants and/or pubs. It is a shame that the space isn't being used better. The location is wonderful and aside from the overwhelming amount of homeless people the river walk was very pretty. Security should be better in the area. We were not comfortable walking back to our hotel at all.... More

This was one of many of Tony's schemes.The problem is the horrible restaurants in the place. If they could get something like Outback there it could turn the place around. They need a strong security presence there.

We've had several happenings at the landing and the people there were the greatest. We had the Donate Life rally here and we were very successful in signing up people to sign the card for Organ donations. ORGAN DONATION SAVES A LOT OPF LIVES.

Just depends on when you are there. It has seen better days and the city is exploring renovation ideas these days to bring in more people. Hooters is good. Macaroni Grill/American Café good too. Some of the other restaurants come and go. Decent ice cream. Fountain for kids to run in....sometimes. I enjoy going there for lunch better thn dinner.... More

I have always wanted to visit the the Landing in downtown Jacksonville, and when I did, I was sadly disappointed and underwhelmed. Back in the day, I'm sure this place was a bustling, cool place to hang out, particularly because the view is beautiful. Now, it seems as if hardly anyone visits. There are barely any shops, and the employees... More

The Landings are always dear to my heart for their beautiful Christmas holiday decorations and events. But their overall quality and variety of restaurants and stores appears to keep dwindling. The one thing that I was incredibly impressed with was the Jacksonville Welcome Center located inside the mall section of the Landings. They offered a very extensive variety of pamphlets... More

Great placwe for a stroll by the waterfront. The Irish restaurant was great food and entertainment on the patio. Several other restaurants and somew shopping...but lots of closed stores and a "feeling" the place has seen better days.

Poor Jacksonville Landing. It's one of those places that was probably a thriving area at one time, but has apparently fallen out of favor. Not much going on there, unfortunately, because it has the space and location to be a really fun place (we were there only during the daytime). It is located right next to the water, has an... More

My family and I visited Jacksonville Landing to buy some drinks after visiting the Friendship Fountain. What we found was a barely-open, dated, and dirty "shopping" area. Signs placed by the owners of closed shops even alluded to the fact that shady activities occur there. The only reason why it didn't receive one star is because the people we did... More

Interesting event for new entrepreneurs. There were many different types of business ventures, as well as vendors of other types.
