    We had the BEST experience at Public Landings! Celebrated our Anniversary with delicious food, wonderful wait staff and a table with a view of the limestone steps and Spring flowers in their gardens. Can’t wait to go again.

    We’ve enjoyed Public Landing for years! We can always count on great food and great service in the loveliest atmosphere. The salmon with roasted vegies is exceptional. We like to try different menu items but may not be able to resist having the salmon regularly!!!

    Very disappointed in our Easter meal. The Holiday Plate contained both ham and turkey. The ham was tough and tasteless. The turkey was very tender but bland and for a lack of a better word, "mushy". Our server was top notch and the dessert was delicious. Price was fair.

    Love this place. Our server Conner, was great & our always friendly water, clean up, wrap food gal:). Ordered my first martini straight up Belvedere vodka & baileys, 1/2 & 1/2 perfect…Second came curdled not so good:(. Was not the same two ingredients…Disappointed since this is my only drink and I know the difference…Same bartender as well, not two different behind bar…When you take the chance at cutting corners you lose good paying customers. Also ad the kale/ arugula salad was all kale maybe 2 pieces of arugula…Kale, is great but so is arugula…should be half and half, like my drink of choice.

    Went for our anniversary dinner. Both food and service were fantastic. Lots of wood and solid surfaces, we were near a bigger group and at times their sound carried, but not terribly.. recommend the pork chop and crab cake breaded fish.

    Pam was our server and even though the landing was super busy she covered us well with perfect timing serving the food and cocktails. My wife and I had the whitefish which was not only served hot but also very tasty. This is our favorite date place.

We had the grouper special, corned beef special and a pasta dish. All were excellent especially the grouper. Debbie was our waitress and she was extremely friendly and attentive. Definitely will be back.

    there were a lot of things wrong and some things right... service was good in the beginning of our visit.... got our drinks...ordered our food... salad was great and then it went down hill.... my husbands food was tolerable... my steak...a filet... was chewy and tough....i thought it was a sirloin....the waitress was chatting with the diners she knew and forgot she was waiting on our table too..... when she was paying us some attention, she was good... but it was far and few that she attended to us.... it was my husbands birthday.... which they knew...not even a happy day or any acknowledge.... the biggest disappointment was the food.

    Everything was delicious. The shrimp for tge shrimp cocktail were very plump. Always get the pretzel sticks and cones either a cheese and mustard dipping sauce. Excellent onion soup and salads were good. The corn chowder was outstanding. The branzino and perch dishes were very delicious . The small 3 oz filets either cheese crumbles and shoestring potatoes were very good too. Had an attentive server. Dessert basket with fresh fruit and whipping cream was outstanding. Always get it.

    This was our first time at the restaurant and it was fantastic. The building was truly amazing. It certainly added to the entire experience. The service was extremely attentive and the food was excellent. There were so many dishes that I wanted to try, but I settled on the Steak Frites. Loved the stuffed mushrooms. We will definitely go back to try more dishes.

    Dinner and a cocktail in this beautiful, unique historic building was great. We both enjoyed the three course dinner special choosing scallops, filet medallions and berry sorbet. It’s not something we’d regularly order but decided to give it a try, without being disappointed. The service was excellent from our server to those offering water and clearing the table. The manager even stopped by to check on us. GF options are offered with a good selection of dishes. Minus areas …. Some may miss the bread that was usually served with meals. Parking is limited in the lot. You’ll find street parking but for some, that may be a concern.

    Public Landing is Outstanding! Great food and drinks always. Fantastic filet medallions, and terrific garlic mashed potatoes. The appetizer, bang bang cauliflower is so tasty and not too spicey. The bartender makes great French martini's too. We are treated like family there. One of my favorite places.

    Was there for lunch. Two tables away had fish which we could smell when delivered. Have always remembered that if you smell it, it isn't fresh. Disappointing. What we ordered was delicious. Service was very good as well.
