We sat outside and our waiter Johnny was fantastic. Food was out of this world. He answered all our questions and offered the daily specials. The crab bisque and the crab meat omelet were excellent.

The restaurant has a beautiful setting with river views, and is a bit tired in its furnishings. The service was excellent. A fantastic crab bisque, and an average grouper (overpriced0 was complemented by a good, reasonable wine. But the desserts, oh the desserts! Fantastic limoncello cake, fantastic bread pudding, was a great ending to a pretty good meal.

Yes it is nice to sit by the ocean, listen to music and dine, but don't be tempted. The floors were sticky as were the tables. My seared tuna salad was not made with high quality fish. My compatriots had salmon and grouper with different sauces which tasted very similar. We also thought the bartender was not too helpful when... More

We didn't get to the Landing until it was late and most places were preparing to close. However, at almost closing "Benny" sat us outside where we could hear the band. He received excellent service and had the best Jambalaya ever!! Highly recommend--and yes, we will be going back when we return to Jacksonville.
