“Not very good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2009

Ate here twice in the week I was staying in Marblehead, and not that impressed - service was friendly enough, and the view is good, but the food leaves a lot to be desired. If you go to the trouble of asking how someone wants something cooked (in this case a piece of grilled salmon), then don't serve something that is the opposite. My salmon came out charred to extinction. The next evening it came out just this side of raw. It's not that difficult to get right is it?

“Great view, nice lunch with the kids if outside”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2009

Five of us, including 2 young kids (1 & 3) had lunch while walking around town. We sat outside, and the view, service, and food were good . Not gourmet , or very creative, by any means, but good basic fare. Shepherd Pie was fantastic, the chicken caesar was OK, and the kids split a huge hot dog that was very tasty. Go for the view / location, and food will be fine.

“Go someplace else if you're interested in food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2009

Took a friend to lunch at The Landing, having heard that it had improved over what it had become in the last year or so. Well, what a disappointment. My chicken marsala was so overseasoned and over-wined that I was hard pressed to know what on earth I was eating....sort of felt like grazing in an old herb patch. Strawberry shortcake for dessert consisted of a stale shortbread with oversweetened frozen strawberries, covered with 'cream' from a can. In between the layers of shortbread was some kind of gooey, pasty, shortening-like frosting or cheesy filling (have no idea what on earth it was).
Service was o.k....poor guy was serving up lousy food.

“Nice setting good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2009

we went to the Landing on an early spring weekend for lunch. Seated in the dining room with a nice view of the harbor. Seating is also available in the Tavern. Service was very good. We had soup of the day (excellent) with sandwiches.

Nice experience would recomend.
