Lobstah everywhere!

You can have a boiled lobstah on your plate, lobstah salad in a roll all while watching the lobster boats being in their days catch. If you're all lobstered out you can't go wrong with the the fish tacos or fish and chips.

We sat outside to dine because it's right on the wharf. The views are amazing! Our meal was very good and the service was good too. The tables, however are too close together. We couldn't have a private conversation because of this. If that doesn't bother you then you will be fine. Tables on the inside are spaced a little... More

The wife craved steamers for her birthday dinner, and so we tested The Landing's kitchen to see if they could provide fresh steamed clams to a very picky eater. They did real well. The clams were plentiful, cooked just right and served hot with broth and melted butter. I had a few and they were sweet and delicious. (We asked... More

I hate giving bad reviews, but I have to tell it like it is. We sat outside for the view. The restaurant inside is quite tired and in need of renovation. A new carpet, paint and new tables and chairs are needed. The food was not good. The batter on the calamari was tasteless. The seafood pasta was pretty but... More

We stopped at the landing for lunch after it was recommended by a shop owner in Marblehead. We had lobster salad and lobster mac n cheese. Both were delicious the service was good, and sitting on the outside terrace watching the fishermen was great

Waterfront restaurant in picturesque seaside town. Excellent view of harbor from most of dining room as well as outdoor deck seating having propane heaters. View is especially good in evening before sunset. Quality varied menu and good service. Not cheap, but good value. Restaurant has frequent weekday events wherein a portion of sales are donated to local charities, as well... More

Wonderful spot right on the wharf with good food. Deserts are insane. In addition to the restaurant there is a very large pub with plenty of room to eat. Great mix of visitors and locals. Will not drain your vacation funds. Staff is great. We walked but there appears to be a good amount of parking.
