    I've eaten at Landmark before and I've enjoyed both the food and service, but this dining experience was anything but enjoyable. The fries were dry/hard, the waitress was friendly up until there was a 25 minute wait for our entrees and she didn't check back with the table after dropping off our appetizers to explain the wait. When I received my dish it was salty, she was nice enough to take the entree off of the meal and she did apologize for the wait after I asked for an explanation but by this time the damage was done and my party was unsatisfied.

    Let me begin by saying that I have frequented this establishment at least six times so far this year. This time was by far the worst. Our cheesesteak egg rolls (my fav) was cold. The chili nachos had a hair in it so we returned it and got a fresh order which was good. Out Parmesan fries were ok. The buffalo wings were luke warm. The $2.00 strawberry margarita was the best thing about our meal. Although this experience wasn't that great, I will return because their happy hour is reasonable.

    I dined at Landmark Americana for the first time on July 17, 2014. The menu was pretty limited, lots of finger foods. We had the wings and cheesesteak eggrolls which were really good. There are about 10 different wing sauces which is nice if you like wings. The drinks were great, two martinis and I was nice. I had a pomegranate and a lemon martini and they were both very good. What I liked most was the seating. They have outside seating and some nice booths inside. You can really cozy up with someone if you are on a date. There was also live music outside which is always nice. I will definitely go back.

    My fam & I went for lunch after my nephew's grad & was offended by the attitude of the waitress who served us. She seemed to be having a bad day. We asked if the chicken quesadilla that came w/the Landmark combo appetizer could be substituted for a veggie one & she seemed irritated and became dissuasive, saying she didn't think it could, if so, it would cost more & she would have to check w/the chef. She returned & let us know it couldn't be substituted, so i added a veggie quesadilla to the order for the guest of honor. Given her attitude, I doubted if she even checked with the chef. At the end of the day, the celebration of my nephews grad superceded all else & our smiles restored.

    After waiting wayyy too long for my salad, it finally arrived and it was wrong. I sent it back and it took forever to get what I ordered. The waitress was nice, but too busy with a drunk girl at the bar to be attentive to my table. The waitress brought this said drunk a cup of water and the girl slammed the water down on the table and started cursing at the waitress.The guests at the bar were extremely loud and obnoxious. Throughout my entire experience there I heard this weird banging noise. Service was painfully slow and food was below average. Our waitress was sweet, but did not have her priorities straight.

    The Landmark UCity is great if you are trying to go and hang out with friends for a longer period of time. You will absolutely not feel rushed as service is super slow. Do not expect to be able to get drunk or be hydrated as servers rarely come around and you may wait 45minutes for your appetizers to show up. But the food is great and moderately priced.

    The staff was very accommodating. The area They gave us was a bit cramped. The service was good as we came in at different times, but each new person was welcomed as they came into the restaurant. The fried chicken fingers and crab cakes were hard and dry. The salmon sandwich was good. Most if the food was hot. We made graduation on time so service was timely.

    I frequently come in for lunch without any problem getting seated (especially with a reservation) and getting served within the time allowed. Everything was slow from being seated to getting our food. We ended up having to get our food to go and eat back at the office. Will definitley think twice about coming in for lunch.

    Stopped here for lunch after touring the Drexel campus. Perfect location at the end of our tour & across the street from the recommended parking garage. We had chicken tenders & fries -ok, nothing special, a cheese burger & sweet potato fries which came with a great cinnamon dipping sauce. The burger lacked the charcoal grill taste & I wondered if it was fried. Came in a great brioche roll. Our other diner had a chicken quesadilla . Very good, fresh & tasty. Fries were tasty, but they need to increase the temperature of their fryer to get the desired crispness. Don't get me wrong, lunch was good, service was good, but I am a "foodie". If you are going to do bar food, do it well. This is a nice spot for parents & students to go to lunch.

    Got to the restaurant and they had my reservation screwed up. I made a reservation for 10 and the manager said it was only for 7. He right out lied to me. A young lady called me earlier to confirm my reservation for 10. He did nothing to accommodate me. He kept saying that there was nothing he could do. There was an empty table next to is us and he refused to put that table with ours. I will never go here again. When I first got there it was a male greeter who was very rude. He told me he couldn't sit me because there were no seats at my table. I was the one to make the reservations. This place was just full of rude and ignorant people. We left the restaurant and went somewhere else.

    two of my girlfriends and myself went out to grab something to eat. The food was good and the prices were good as well. the only thing I will say is that the waiter never introduce herself nor attend to us like she was suppose to. Other than that is was good and I will go back there again. We laughed for about two hours it was great.

    The seafood bisque was the highlight of the night this time around. Our other dishes were average to poor, especially an entree salad made with old iceberg lettuce. Our table of 5 also had an automatic 18% tip added which seemed unreasonable. Not sure we will be dining there again, nor would i take a chance recommending it without a warning.

    I tried the rib chili soup. It is very special with generous amount of rib meat as well as too much beans. It is also too sweet to my taste. I also had the crab cake sandwich. It is nothing to write about, very plain and slightly greasy (it is much better than most cheap ones, but still greasy) The buns are very low quality, fries are good. I saw other people ordered the nachos, which is a very big portion. Will try that next time I visit. The service is slow and nothing special. The noise level really depends on your neighbors, I happened to be seated next to some very loud person. Overall it is a typical american food with a slightly high but acceptable price.

    This is one of the few restaurants that really does provide a good selection of their popular items for UCDining at the mid-level fixed price 3-course dinner. Portions were generous as usual - we ended up taking home lots of leftovers! The crab fondue and sweet potato fries appetizers are really meant for sharing between 2 people, as are the brownie and apple crisp desserts that we had. For entrees, the fish and chips was crispy but not greasy and the jambalaya was hot and spicy. And as leftovers, the fish and chips were still good, which isn't always the case. Had we not opted for UCDining, we'd have split one appetizer and split one dessert but it was great to have the choices. We'll be back there again!

We tried all flavors of the wings, cheesesteak egg rolls, dumpling, crab cakes, taco bar,to stuffed chicken with crab meat and the food looked delicious and even had nice size portions but it had absolutely no taste..

    We went to Landmark Americana for a father's day brunch. The brunch menu, however, wasn't even given to us when we were seated at 11:15 am. We had to ask for it. There was only 5 things on it. The pancakes were good. I especially liked the fresh fruit with them. But the coffee was ATROCIOUS. I had to ask for extra half and half, too. My sister had a burger, which looked pretty good. For a quick lunch on the weekend, or a drink at happy hour, this place is nice. But not a brunch or nice dinner place at all.

    With family of five we had reservations for lunch. Unfortunately we were late but they accommodated us quickly anyway. The service was great, fast and informative. The food was very good and the atmosphere was nice, modern. There is a good size outdoor area which I hope to try some day. Pricing for the area was typical. The both we were in was nice but don't lean on the table too hard getting in or our of the both or it will just about fall over on you.

    The menu at Landmark Americana is nothing spectacular -- what you might expect inside of a college recreation center: burgers, sandwiches, quesadillas, wings, ribs, beer... but the quality is really up there. Probably, their food is sourced locally and is fresh. Even something as mundane as a veggie quesadilla is really tasty because the ingredients are fresh. The onion soup is good and so are the burgers! Try it! The sangrias are great too... yum..
