    Food was very good. French onion soup a favorite. Two of us got the duck which we love. We were put in a back room in the back with a big party. Not the ambiance I look forward to in the restaurant. I would rather wait than sit back there again! Waitress great though!

    We love the Public Landing, but we were surprised by the increase in prices since the last time we were there. Even the bread has been put on the appetizer menu and everything you order now is ala carte. Our bill was $175 for just two of us. The food is always good, but it certainly is nothing out of the ordinary. Our server was fantastic and of course we tipped him appropriately, so the total was well over $200. Just be willing to spend when you go.

    The reason I’m giving you an overall experience a three is because it seem you have a shortage of plates, glasses and silverware. It’s the most ridiculous thing to be eating at a restaurant and have a waiter or staff member standing by waiting for you to finish an appetizer or drink(when you haven’t finished it) and try and grab it, when I’m not done!

    The menu is really midwestern comfort food. We all ordered something different, from schnitzel, to stroganoff to perch. Everything was delicious and service was top notch. Prices were reasonable. Is definitely on our list of places to revisit.

    We arrived early and had a drink at the bar. Great service and good drinks. Our Waitress left much to be desired. Not personable, all business. Noticed, that she was the same with her other tables too. My filet was was good, but served medium well, versus medium rare. My wife’s prime rib was medium rare versus medium well. Either the orders were mixed up or a mistake in the kitchen. Double baked potato, was just warm.The Brussels sprouts, lacked seasoning. Caesar salad was fantastic. We have dined at the Public Landing numerous times over the years, it’ll be a while before we return. Overall, we did have a nice evening.

    I ordered my steak medium well and it was smashed and no sign of medium. The cosmo was just ok. Service was good. Parking was awful. I wanted it to be amazing, but it was just ok. Peach cobbler was the best part of the meal.

    Beautiful atmosphere. Food was average and needs some flavoring. Both our meals were very bland. My husband had salmon and I had the stir fry with chicken bowl. The biggest disappointment was that I made a reservation and noted it was my husband’s birthday and request a window seat. When we arrived, they told us we had to wait if we wanted a window seat because none were available. Why wouldn’t they have had one reserved for us per our reservation request? So we waited. Then no one ever acknowledged my husband’s birthday either. Very disappointing experience!

    We were there for a special dinner and they did not disappoint. The food and service were both spectacular. It was a little noisy when we first got there because they were very busy. But, because there is plenty of room between the tables we had no problem carrying on a private conversation and enjoying our cocktails and dinner. The staff knows how to be attentive without being intrusive and our server made us feel very special. It was a great evening.

    Reservations are a must, every table was full. The dining room was loud & energetic with many tables celebrating special events. Our server was Erin & she was prompt, efficient & attentive. All the wait staff works effectively. Food was flavorful & large portions. We ordered pork tenderloin & seafood Bayou. The only negative issue is parking is tight since they have a small parking lot.

    I really liked this restaurant. Beautiful outdoor views, dark, romantic and nice vibe inside. Only small negative issue I would say is that it is LOUD inside, so if you are with someone you are trying to have a conversation with you need to sit directly next to them. Also, our server brought our entrees out before we had 3 bites of our salad. Not sure if he was upset we brought our own wine, or whether they were trying to get us out of there to turn the table over since they were busy. Nevertheless will look forward to coming back soon, though my SO and I may sit at the bar together for dinner so we can talk.

    Love the outdoor atmosphere. Food is delicious. Waitress was wonderful and very personable, the hostess on the other hand…not so much. After telling her our name she proceeded to try and sit us indoors. I let her know as per the reservation we requested outdoor seating. Not very friendly to begin with she became miffed and actually gave us the eye roll. She then stated there were 3 others asking for outdoor seating but since it’s first come first serve I GUESS you can have it. There were 4 empty tables and throughout our meal there was always at least one empty. So what was the problem? Bad night? I had the crab stuffed white fish while he had the steak medallions. Absolutely wonderful. We shared the chocolate mousse for dessert. Afterwards took a nice leisurely walk along the canal. Just a wonderful peaceful atmosphere.
