Had a late dinner out on the deck. Overall meal was OK not outstanding. Staff seemed more interested in ending their evening, than giving great service.

I go back to The Landing every time I visit my family in Boston. It is beautiful sitting on the water and their lobster mac n cheese is legendary.

Had a party of 9 and were seated within a half hour. Outside dining area was full. Lobster mac & cheese huge and very good. Baked haddock was one of the best I've had - so fresh with wonderful homemade tasting mashed potatoes. Clam chowder good as well as fish and chips - their steak cut fries were awesome. If... More

We were a bit early for lunch and enjoyed the view of Marblehead Harbor while we waited for the restaurant to open. It was a bit chilly so we chose to sit indoors with a view of the harbor and all the boats at their moorings. We both had fish and chips which was delicious and fresh. My partner also... More

We frequent the Landing whenever we are in town visiting family or friends and are never disappointed. The restaurant has a great view of Marblehead harbor and some of the best clam chowder around. The lobster rolls and scallops are also on point.

We came here in a Monday night. Asked to sit on the deck, which was very nice. We had a variety of food (chowder, seafood pasta, fried clams, baked scrod). The food was all very good. Our waitress was friendly but service was slow. In her defense, she appeared to be waiting quite a few tables but it was just... More

Besides the food being tasty and well prepared, you always feel at home here. The staff is fairly stable and you get to know them and they remember you too. The outdoor deck is right on the ocean with a beautiful view. The lobster rolls are delicious and they will substitute a baked potato for the french fries. Plus the... More

We went there today and got a dozen oysters, and they were fantastic! I would highly recommend the raw bar there if that piques any interests. We also got the bacon wrapped scallops which were excellent too. My entree, which was the Boston Baked Scrod, was a little bland. The piece of fish was really small, veggies over cooked, and...
