We drove by initially because we thought it looked "too fancy" for as casual as we were dressed. When we didn't find anything else in the area to our liking, we decided to stop in - thought we could always sit in the lounge. Seemed anything goes in the dining area from dressy to softball uniforms which was nice. Friendly... More

We took a big group, which may have doomed us, but hey, its a big place. To be fair, it was a year ago so I'm working from memory. Some solid memories include complaints about the whiskey steak tasting way off and the a/c not working well. Kind of slow service. We stuck the old fella (my father) with the... More

This place is great! I was sooooo skeptical when I read the reviews if I should come here or not. Could not be more pleased that I ignored the bad reviews! I came here for lunch with my mother and we had a great time. Our sandwiches were made just how we ordered them and were done quickly. I was... More

Stopped by for lunch on a weekday and was greeted kindly and promptly upon seating myself. Food was delivered hot and fresh within 10 minutes of ordering. Service was excellent and Elizabeth is the best waitress ever. I'll definitely be coming back the next time I'm in Canton!

My wife and I decided to take our two children, (8yr and 18mo), out for a nice dinner. My wife and I have eaten at The Landing before without our children and always enjoyed it, so we had a good feeling that our children would also enjoy it. The evening did not disappoint. We arrived at about 6:30 on a... More

After reading some of the negative reviews, we were cautious in our expectations, but our dinner turned out to be a delightful experience. The cocktails were excellent, the food simple but fresh and very tasty and the service couldn't have been better. Give it a try!

Ok, so first and foremost, our waitress was the best part of the experience! Then the cocktail. And that's it! We ordered prime rib and received no jus. Hello?? Prime rib.... It was cold, as well as the veggies. In addition, our son ordered a filet medium. It was well done. All of our mashed potatoes were cold, really!! My... More

Let's face it, there's nowhere decent to eat in Canton when you have a family. I can't take my (potentially) screaming brats to the Bistro, and you can only eat so many boneless wings from the 'Hut. I keep returning to the Landing hoping it will magically get better. Things started out well enough. We had a reservation so we... More

My mom and I decided to eat here after Mother's Day. I had the calamari and blue cheeses burger. Both were great and we will be back.

We have ate here a few times within the years and haven't had a bad meal yet.. I am a little shocked at reading these reviews, but I have to say that for a Saturday night they were not too full - I remember more people at 7:15pm last time we ate here several months ago.. Maybe these reviews are... More
