Very disappointing

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... read 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

I live at the lake and close to The Landing. The food is normally very good, but it is too pricey and the girl in the bar has an attitude.

We stayed at Bernard's Landing for the weekend. On our first night we sat in the bar and we were served by Liz. Before we decided to eat and drink there we were advised that Liz was legendary. Legendary in the sense that she is usually rude, slow, and inattentive to non locals. I was excited to meet her. She... More

The bar menu (great selection, great food and reasonably priced) has finally been combined with the Landing Restaurant menu and all can be ordered in the restaurant. Prior, the separation was unacceptable and the Landing by itself well overpriced especially for the area. Hopefully they have taken input for the customer and the results provide a fairly priced and really... More

First, the wait staff is always outstanding; personable, not rushed, seek to please. The food is consistently outstanding and the presentation is pleasing. The Chef does magic with whatever he prepares. You can't go wrong from the menu; the bar service was a bit slow.
