Now, It's Great!

The menu is now suited for the family, casual and fine dining. The service is on point and the food is excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to go for a burger (FANTASTIC) or the Pittsburg Fillet Mignon - real matched potatoes and fantastic dessert!

My husband and I ate here yesterday evening for our first anniversary dinner. We had reservations for 730 and were immediately seated as soon as we arrived, right on time. Our server was great, very attentive. He let us know as soon as we ordered that it may be a little while because the kitchen was a little backed up.... More

My husband and I decided to drive to The Landing for drinks and an early dinner this evening. We did not have a reservation. We got there at 4:30 which is about 30 minutes before the restaurant officially opens for dinner. Barbara greeted us when we came in and explained that they were not open yet, but that we could...

My wife and I ate here for our anniversary dinner on a recent weekend to SML. We enjoyed a wonderful meal, capped by a beautiful rainbow over the lake after a storm moved through. I had the Peruvian Chicken and she had the Carbonara. Both meals were delicious. We would return on our next visit to SML in a heartbeat.

Consistently good is the way I think of meals at our favorite restaurant on the lake. Bruno's salad is always a must for me and the swordfish special was perfect. We enjoy the variety on the menu and of course the outdoor seating!!

The Landing Restaurant and chef Bruno continue to amaze us with creative and ever changing dishes coupled with a beautiful lake setting. My wife and I usually split the Bruno Mixed Greens salad, a must! Last night enjoyed ceviche for the first time. Delicious. I devoured the perfectly prepared, succulent pork chop with apple juice reduction sauce. My wife, the... More

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
