This is a great place to enjoy the scenery. Perched on the ocean the view can't be beat. Watch boats un load the catch of the day while you eat. We were looking for a place to have lunch and stumbled upon this place. neither of us expected the food to be as good as it was. The service was... More

We were visiting Marblehead for the first time ever. We found this restaurant when we walked to the dock, so we decided to try it out. We were seated on the deck and I can tell you this the view was fantastic. That is the only thing going for it. The service was very slow it took forever for our... More

25 years of enjoying wonderful food, people & atmosphere!! Best Clam Chowder we have ever experienced! We always make time for The Landing when we are in Marblehead!! The Pub is perfect on a cold rainy day or cheering on your favorite Boston Sports Team! The deck is amazing for a sunny or even not so sunny day!! The Landing... More

The view was beautiful. Our waitress phylicia was fun, fast with a great personality! The beers were nice and cold but the food was not good at all. Sitting at the pier you would expect the lobster roll to be stuffed with fresh lobster but it tasted just like frozen. The bun was stuffed with more lettuce than lobster. Very... More

Enjoyed a delicious lobster roll at the Landing on Saturday. The restaurant was crowded, but Emily provided great service. I generally prefer my lobster roll warm with butter, but this cold lobster roll with the perfect amount of celery and mayo was delicious. It was served in a warm toasted brioche and accompanied by seasoned fries and a delightfully crispy... More

Well run and outstanding service. The location is that: Location, Location, Location. Whether out on the deck and experiencing the beautiful sail boat filled harbor or dining inside in well appointed arrangements, The management of the restaurant is superb. The menu a delight and the waiters pleasant. A treat for many occasions.

I've always wanted to eat at The Landing and so we decided to make a reservation on Father's Day. (An FYI foot note on this day and I assume on other busy holidays the restaurant does scheduled seatings with a break in between them). Also parking can be a little on the tight side. There is a municiple lot next... More

My husband and I had dinner at the Landing on August 8th. We were highly impressed with the service and the food, and thought the prices were very reasonable considering the quality of the experience. We were lucky enough to be seated at a corner table on the deck on a perfect summer evening. The view was amazing. We enjoyed... More
