Not the best food, not the best service. The restaurant has a nice vibe and decor, the setting is superb. It's a great place to land if you're not in a hurry and are okay with a good but not great meal.

For years The Landing served perch baskets and sandwiches. Not this year! Instead they offer cod. This is Great Lakes country, not New England. Every restaurant offers cod, I will return when they go back to perch.
