I've been to the Landing multiple times both during big events and ordinary weekday lunch trips. It's like Jekyll and Hyde. The venue can look spectacular when there are outside vendors and private organizers doing their thing. However, it can look (and smell) dated and a B class venue on its own. However, the amazing view of the St. Johns... More

This place has a promising future, but - unless there's a good concert on center stage, just enjoy our beautiful river walk, which goes right in front of it, along the St. Johns River. (Trivia: The river flows North!)

The Landing started as a Rouse Company destination, patterned after a similar mall in Baltimore, but over the years has become a series of cheap stores, okay restaurants and a lot of beer. It's about the only thing open at night downtown so it often has a good crowd of those who somehow had to stay in a downtown hotel.... More

The Landing is a place that never really got the attention it should have. no business really does good and they have quite a turnover. The potential is here but not the hotels and public transportation to make it viable. I say tear it down move it away from crime riddled downtown and away from the courthouse and police headquarters... More

Fun sitting outside and listening to music, but all depends when you go, if it's during the Gator/Bulldog game, it is way too busy...Christmas is nice, sit outside, and listen to Christmas Carols sung by local churches, or organizations. There is an Italian Restaurant that has seats outside, and the food is fantastic!

When there is a special event going on that draws a crowd, the Landing can be a fantastic place. A holiday event, post running race event, bike night - the Landing can be great. Without an event, there won't be much going on. If you want a great meal, or a meal that displays the best of what local Jacksonville... More

Personally I love the Landing. Its right by the Riverwalk. Take your children or take a date. Its just nice to sit back and look at the water. Now it can get busy with a crowd and music based on what's going on. Like the Gator Bowl, etc., which is crazy fun; but you can still find a quiet spot... More

The Jacksonville Landing needs a complete overhaul!! This place used to be "the place" back in the 80's and early 90's with plenty of shopping, eating facilities, and nightlife. Unless there is a special event going on in Jacksonville (FL vs GA football game) the Landing is dead! Mavericks is ok for night life but if a decent band comes,... More

once a great place to go in the late 90's, it hasn't been in a long time. it is ok to go during the day, but do not go down at night. We went to two shows recently at the Times Union Building and went to the Landing to dinner. Not sure how the restaurant even stays open. Dirty and... More

When there are events downtown and the landing is in the area of the events it's a great place to go walk around, grab drinks, listen to music, and take in a view. One Spark was one of these events. If you're just going on a random Tuesday I would say there are better areas to explore in Jacksonville.
