“Fireworks”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Granted it was the 4th of July and crowded was to be expected, but the servers were overwhelmed and management was squeezing extra tables anywhere they could. The food took forever to arrive, but when it did all the courses came at once. No apology from the server who even took a long time to present the bill. Food was average, definitely found better restaurants after this one.

“Typical tourist trap with terrible service”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

The Landing is on the water, so it has a great view, but the service is absolutely terrible. It took 45 minutes just to get a side salad, and two hours for dinner, without even so much as a simple "I'm sorry it took so long" from the arrogant waitress. We were seated immediately so we didn't think service would take so long. If you don't have the staff to properly serve guests in a timely manner, don't seat them. Expensive mediocre food.

“Good view, prices and friendly staff”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

We dined in the upper deck area, had beers and appetizers, and overall a great time. We thought the prices were very reasonable for the location (overlooking the pier and people watching).

“Nice view, mediocre food”
Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

View and service were good. No veggie options (not even entree salad). Meat in lobster roll was dry, despite location next to lobster boats. Kid Mac and cheese was Kraft. Poor wine selection.

“Good seafood at surprisingly reasonable lunch prices.”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

We went to The Landing with family expecting a restaurant in their prime location to be obscenely expensive. I was surprised to find the lobster roll (which my wife ordered) and the fish tacos (which I had) were reasonable though not cheap. The lobster roll was fantastic. The tacos were different than expected but good. The views of the million dollar boats gave us much conversation. There are so many restaurants to choose from so I cannot say we'd go back, but I wouldn't refuse if someone invited us.
