Right on Marblehead Harbor, The Landing offers great food, ambiance and service beyond compare. I had the French Dip sandwich (a special that day) and Maddy had a Lobster Roll. We were both pleased with the food, quantity and presentation. Hard to beat in Marblehead. Give it a try.

A good variety in the lunchtime menu, in a pleasant harbourside location, with friendly, efficient service.

I have been to this restaurant several times over the past 15 years when visiting my in-laws. The location is perfect with a beautiful view of the harbor. I usually order the chowder and it has been consistently good. My husband, who grew up nearby said that the food is better than another restaurant with a view down the street.... More

I returned to Marblehead for a high school reunion, and had lunch here with a friend I had not seen in 50 years last month. We told the waitress the situation, and she promised the "best lobster rolls ever". And, she delivered! No fillers in these rolls -- just lobster! This fun restaurant sits on the public wharf (landing). It... More

We were staying at a B&B nearby and had looked this place uo ahead of time...on the water gorgeous! By the time we got there is was dreary, dark, and rainy. We still went even though you couldn't see much. Food was good. I had the delmonico steak and my husband had the burger and lobster combo. Server was nice... More

Since moving to Marblehead over twenty years ago my wife and I have found The Landing to be our "go to" in-town eating establishment. What keeps us coming back are the consistent quality of the food overall, the freshness of the locally sourced seafood items, the friendly staff and atmosphere as well as the beautiful waterfront views, especially when it...

Our server was awesome, he was attentive, nice, and that made the whole experience better. The food was good, I had the haddock and my husband the lobster roll and soup. Quick service, reasonable prices. Here's the negative: the flies. They were everywhere inside. Disappointment for sure to keep swatting them away do they didn't land on your food.

We were recommended this restaurant as the best place for lobster in the town and we were not disappointed. Lively place, good atmosphere and great service.

Thank tojrebor
