Good food

My family ate here while in town for a college function. The food and service were very good, however my bill was a little steep. Would recommend if your wallet has some extra cash in it.

I was there with a group of 12. We made reservations. First, most of us ordered unsweet tea. There was no sweetener on the table (or any adjoining tables) so when we asked the waiter for some, he brings one little container for the entire group that we had to pass up and down the table. We had been there... More

I've eaten here any number of times (lunch, dinner and just drinks) over the past 8 years with friends and family who've want to try it. I can certainly give The Landing an A+ for consistency - it's over priced and the service is practically non-existent. But the location is fabulous and the décor is nice, if a bit trite... More

The Landing is across Front Street from the Cain River in the heart of the historic district. The huge windows allow diners to see those strolling along the sidewalk with the River in the background. This large restaurant has ample seating away from the windows also. I had the yummy crab cakes over crawfish stew...wonderful! The are offered several ways.... More

While visiting Natchitoches we tried several restaurants. It's just about impossible to go wrong! However, we thought that The Landing was just a "cut above" the others eateries that we tried. We had two 12-year-olds, and every effort was made to accommodate them. (The chicken strips were reported to be the best!.) I had the very best gumbo that I've... More

This place is great. They have authentic creole and Cajun food. They also have a reasonably priced lunch menu. It's right in front street located next to all of the local shopping. Pretty good food

Service was great as was the food. We also bought 72 mini meat pies for our sons crew team. They were awesome and the bartender was super helpful.

The Landing was recommended toe by the front desk clerk at my hotel. The location is awesome overlooking the river on Front Street. I had the alligator and chicken gumbo and it was tasty but not exceptional. The fried shrimp were good but the fries were so hard they were not edible. I will say the atmosphere was nice and...

This was the favorite of all five of our traveling group. We ate there twice in three days. One of us decided the Landing had "the best etouffe" she had ever eaten. Homemade blue cheese dressing was excellent, but I wish I had asked for it on the side. They smothered the salad. Desserts were delicious! I would go again!... More
