About
LandShark Bar & Grill is the only year-round full-service bar and restaurant on the sand side of the Boardwalk, bringing its guests to the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. Inspired by the great “beach joints” that once dotted the Atlantic Coast, the venue features retractable walls to provide spectacular views of the ocean and places guests in the center of the action on the beach and Boardwalk. Inside, guests will find daily entertainment in a setting of surfing artifacts to honor the great Atlantic City surfing tradition.

For the price the food quality is lacking. Food quality was something you would get from a bowling alley snack bar and over priced for the proportion and quality.More

We stopped in for a Drink and an Appetizer and were totally impressed with the Service. We also enjoyed the Ocean View, while relaxing.

We had not been to Atlantic City since the COVID pandemic, and we decided to visit today and give the Landshark a try since our go-to casino buffets remain closed. We should have done much more research, as this was a terrible experience. After our...visit, I saw several reviews complaining of poor service, and based on what we saw, these reviews are completely accurate. We arrived at 11:35 a.m. and were told it would be a 30 minute wait. We were willing to wait, and we were actually seated a bit early at 11:55. We looked at the menu for at least 10 minutes, and no server approached our table. We noticed other tables that were seated after us had servers wait on them. I asked the hostess who our server was, as no one had stopped to take our order. The hostess got a server to come and get our drink order. I ordered water with lemon, and they had no lemons. A bar has no lemons? Really? Our daughter ordered a drink from the bar. The server apologized for the wait and said they were having a shift change. We received our waters after several minutes, and a different server brought out our daughter's alcoholic beverage. He appeared to be taking over our table, as the previous server never returned. He took our food order, and after about another 15-20 minutes, he came out to tell me that they were out of the salad dressing I requested. I have no idea why it would take that long to realize they were out of the salad dressing I ordered. By this time, It was almost 12:50 p.m. Another table that arrived several minutes after us had already received their food. Frustrated, my husband stood up by his seat at the table. Our server approached and asked if he could get us anything? My husband said, "Yes, the manager." I said we had been waiting almost an hour at this point. My husband informed the server that if the food didn't arrive, we would be leaving. The server gave us a frazzled look and simply walked away. He never apologized. To be frank, he was completely clueless. Another five minutes passed. At this point, we got up, left the money for our daughter's drink on the table, and walked out. My husband told the hostesses on the way out that we had sat for an hour and only got water. One looked stunned, but never offered an apology. The other looked as if she could have cared less. It was probably amazing our daughter actually got her drink from the bar, but she said it wasn't that good. I have no idea how the food was, but I can assure anyone it wasn't worth an hour wait or the stressful experience associated with it. I have noticed a very mixed bag of reviews on this site for this restaurant. The management needs to do a much better job in emphasizing customer service. I also see that a staff representative comments on these reviews and frequently apologizes for the restaurant's inadequacies and "hopes people will give them another chance". Simply put, my advice is to stop apologizing and do better. There are far too many negative reviews. Until vast improvements are made, this establishment should be avoided at all costs.More

Went with family on a Saturday. They opened at 11, we got there by 11:10 and still had to wait to be seated about 10 min. Someone walked up and asked how long of a wait it would be for a table of 6 and...they were told 30 min. Not sure why the wait would be so long right when they opened and there were maybe 5 or 6 tables seated. We were seated and drink order taken immediately. My cousin ordered a frozen margarita and after it was delivered we were informed the place was out of straws. How can you drink a frozen drink without straws? Our server was a little slow, had to wait for refills. Food was delicious! Best fish tacos Ive had. View is greatMore

Great place! The staff was very accommodating. We requested a table on the deck overlooking the ocean and they gave it to us. The wait was long (45min to 1hr). The food was reasonably priced and tasted delicious.

Not much of a menu. Ordered a salad and asked for some extra ranch dressing and the waitress said they would have to charge for extra dressing. The manager came over and I explained, the little cup they put the dressing in, was only half...full. She would not give in and said we have to charge for extra, so I told her to take it back, so she did. Very poor management on her part. They lost out because the salad was $4.99. They also said they did not have lemons for ice tea my husband ordered. Very disappointed!!More

Stopped in for lunch last Saturday and was seated within minutes. Our server "Francine" was with us within a few minutes and took our drink orders and food orders. She returned with our drinks and said she would be out with our food when it...was ready. We decided on the taco nacho's to share, it was plenty for the two of us, we both agreed the nacho's were better than across the boardwalk (no names mentioned). Of course our drink had to be 5 0'Clock Somewhere (very good choice). For everything that is going on in this WORLD, we appreciate the restaurants and everything that they are dealing with. Please be patient and give our servers and cooks a break, (they are doing the best with limited staff). It is not they're fault for what is going on..... We would recommend to others and will continue stopping in....More

I'd say it depends on the kid. It's very loud; we were there when a musical act was playing and we could barely hear ourselves talk.
