“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

We had lunch at The landing today. Service was fine. I ordered the Seafood Feast. Gumbo and tails were cold. My wife had the Burbon Chicken and Key lime pie. She said it was OK. I thought it was way over priced for what we got. I won't go back to that one.

“Overprice-not special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

We ordered shrimp and cheese grits, which was nothing special at all. I have definitely had much better. DH ordered a fried fish platter. The coating seemed like it was straight corn meal, so almost bitter. We did not have appetizer, drinks or dessert and the meal for two was $50. Not a $50 meal, for sure!

“Great food at reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

Blind luck led us here on an afternoon visit. For a small town right in the middle of nowhere, it was indeed a surprise. Actually the whole town is neat.

The blackened alligator was a treat. Have had fried before but this was new to meand had excellent flavor. Wife and daughter said the etouffee was superb.

“Nice restaurant right in center of town on the river”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

I need to qualify this 5-star rating. There are not too many decent restaurants in Natchitoches, so The Landing is a definite 5-star for the area. If it were in L.A., S.F. or N.Y., it would be a 3.5 or 4 star restaurant. Nice big place, well decorated with a variety of seafood and steaks on the menu. The staff is friendly and the service good. We've had seafood and steak and everything has been very good. The place is right on Front St. Across the street from the Cane River. Nice little area to walk around and see the area.

“Great Seafood at The Landing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience here. Clean atmosphere. Wonderful Service. More food served than we could eat (we did try to eat it all).
