Great Place

We live at Barnard's Landing; so we can walk to dinner. The food is always good. It has a great view of the lake.

Very nice, the ambiance is great and the food is outstanding, a little expensive but you only get what you pay for. Must visit.

As one who eats at the Landing and has for years, like some of the other regulars who commented, service will vary BUT we have had always great food, a great location, and always great service. This is the best restaurant at SML hands down. Try all others simply for variety just to confirm in your own that Tiffany and... More

We have been regulars over the years to the Landing and the food has always been inventive and delicious. However, the service has seriously declined, particularly in the bar area, which causes bottlenecks in the restaurant and at the bar. It's really a shame because the food and ambience on the lake are wonderful, but it's no fun waiting an... More

A friend and I went to The Landing Restaurant for dinner last weekend and the server was so rude! She was not attentive and had a terrible attitude. She was clearly showing favor to all of the larger tables around her where she knew she could make more money. Our food took almost an hour to come out-and she never... More

"Specials" and wine tasting dinners are a good value and fun to attend. Sea bass and spicy pasta are great regular menu items , as are fried oysters which were dry and less impressive. Homemade butters are great but bread not always served warm. House brand red wine is terrific, especially if part of special (steak night). Service not what... More

We have had two poor experiences here recently and will not be returning. This used to be the "best restaurant at the lake", but it has really gone downhill. We ate here last week. The service was poor ( water never refilled, bread not replenished, 3 requests needed to get ice for a drink) and we were generally ignored by... More

Just visited the landing for a 1 year anniversary dinner, excellent food and service. Was worried about some of the reviews but our food came reasonably and the server gave us the attention we needed. I had the filet which was very well cooked and the Mac and cheese special was very tasty. Meal for 2 with a few drinks... More

A food truck for anyone, including "foodies", just flat out tasty food, creative, mouth watering, worth the wait. If here at Smith Mountain Lake, VA, during the summer and fall, most weekends Bruno's food truck is parked at Sunken City Brewery, another relatively new local business, with very tasty craft brews. BTW Bruno's included in top 100 nationwide food trucks... More

Last year I swore I would never go to The Landing again. As a summer resident, I made it until now and I caved. In my opinion nothing has changed. Service continues to be subpar, over 30 minutes for entree and the most unfriendly wait staff I have ever seen. Steak undercooked. After it came back to the table, never... More
