We are here for a family reunion renting a big house and pontoon on the lake. We have enjoyed many lunches at The Landing and have been very impressed by the great food, drinks, and service. It was really busy at lunch yesterday, and service was slower, but we still had a great time.

I will start by complimenting the new owners for the recent upgrade of the landing. beautiful bar and dining room log furniture create such a grand look. the lakeside patio and pontoon stage are great fun. the new lakeside tables look great but are very uncomfortable. seat is too narrow. after 30 minutes we all commented and so did the...

Same great location for boaters, new menu featuring one intriguing entree containing "ions" but most items are thinly-disguised Upper Lakes Foods fare. Service has been slow, but hope to see it improve as the all-new staff get into the groove. Portions can be skimpy, for the price. Main gripe: servers are constantly trying to "upsell" like at Manny's in Mpls:... More

The new owners, Tony and Matt are really dedicated to making The Landing a great place to enjoy on Lake Vermilion. Yes, the food can be a bit slow coming out at busy times but Tony informed me that this spring, they will be going out 30 feet to enlarge the kitchen which should help to rectify the situation.They also...

We went to the landing took forever to get our food over an hour they weren't that busy and on a Monday really. Our server was good and apologized Manager was not very friendly and no help. People that ordered after us were done eating before we got our food. I am very disappointed and spent a lot of money... More

Beautiful setting! So exciting for two families from Colorado to take our boat right up to the dock and eat! That is where the fun ends! Two hours, no patrons, three servers and no service!! Not even six lemonades for the kids. So Sad!! Could be so successful! Locals approached us and apologized!

We visited the landing on Sunday evening after July 4 weekend. It was not busy, but had a steady flow of customers. I ordered pasta with spicy sausage and peppers. It seemed fresh, was quite spicy, and was more than enough (I ate about half). My husband had a club sandwich. It had American cheese. It was really hard to... More

My family and I have a hunting shack 8 miles north of the Landing. We live all over the state and come up multiple times thru out the year for fishing and hunting trips. Not one trip goes by that we don't have at least one meal at the Landing. It's tradition now. We love the Sunday brunch on our... More
