Good Food Okay Service

The Landing has a beautiful balcony over the harbor to eat on and a pleasant enough atmosphere inside. The food is very good but our waiter was very slow. The muscle appetizer is good, and the lobster roll is delicious. Great for an easy lunch.

You can't go wrong choosing The Landing. Excellent food at good prices, nice wine list, friendly and accommodating staff, and beautiful view. I've never been disappointed.

Our waiter was prompt and personable, cheerfully moving us in from the porch as it chilled off toward evening. The location is great and the views excellent. However the food was average at best.

But what blew me away was the outstanding service!! They don't have garlic toast on the menu... but I had a craving... and I mentioned it to our waiter. He said... More

Good food (lobster roll and chowder). Reasonable wine list fair prices, some nice tables outdoors overlooking harbor. Must ask for the shrimp upgrade to the Bloody Mary.

Outside on the deck has a great harbor view and a limited water view from the main dining room. Bar/pub menu is interior with no view. Food is fair.

The Landing has a great location on the harbor - and good food to go with the view. The staff is attentive, the menu has enough variety for all, and the food is well prepared.

It was a beautiful early spring day in coastal Marblehead. Three of us met for lunch. We walked out to the open deck to check out the seating and to see if it was warm enough to eat outside near the water. It wasn't so we headed back in. A young waitress intercepted us and chastised us for not waiting... More

After wedding in Marblehead our party decided to search out an early evening drink and dinning establishment. A person familiar with the area suggested The Landing. We were not disappointed. Five in our party and we dined next to other members from the wedding. Great service and varied menu. Nice to find an establishment that serves Famous Grouse Scotch.
