The food was outstanding. Our first visit and we loved it. The overall appearance of the inside is really nice. The lighting and setup was very cool and unique. Great spot for a date night. Tables are spread out and not overly crowded. We had the nicest sever who made our dining experience great. Hope to return again. Oh and food and drinks were excellent. Try the old fashion!

I’ve been wanting to get to Public Landing for some time. I AM SO GLAD we finally made it there. Food was delicious and service was outstanding. The building itself is beautiful - a great restoration! We will definitely be back.

Parking difficulties aside, this restaurant was enjoyable. Good service and an attentive and personable waitress. Crab cakes were quite good. Roast turkey was kind of dry but flavor was good. A bit expensive however.

The table we sat at had an odor akin to a smelly sewer,
Beer selection was a no-selection, not being a wine drinker, the peach drink tasted watered down, the man server was below average, bottom line, we aren’t coming there again,

There were six of us and we ate on the patio. Our waiter was friendly and worked hard. He did not make any mistakes with the orders. Our lunch was very pleasant and I am anxious to return again.

Sunday at noon the hostess was rather rude. The staff just stared at you when I went inside to check my party in as the sign indicated. "Do you have a reservation?" No one was there. And, yes, I did. She barked "Go back outside and wait for a server." Two bowls of Lobster Bisque were luke warm. Food not very hot. Rude waiter at the end. No ambiance for a place that acts so high and almighty.

Everything was great! We sat outside. It’s a very nice setting. We had two dogs with us and the servers seemed to actually enjoy them. Food was very yummy. I had the country chicken. Husband had the salmon. Daughter had the perch and her boyfriend had the ribs. Everyone enjoyed it!

We are not ready to eat inside so this is one of the most pleasant settings to enjoy good food safely. We enjoy the 1/2 price bottles of wine on Wednesday, too.

Public Landing is a wonderful restaurant in the south suburbs. You can really tell management, staff and all employees really care about the customer experience. Their recognition of the pandemic is visible and we felt very safe. They were even accommodating with all my wife’s requests. 👍😃. Thank You. See you soon.

Because our Governor is a whack job, Will County has to do all outdoor seating. I hope the weather holds as this place is beautiful, with great location, food, people, etc. Please check this place out and maybe, just maybe will county and our Governor in Illinois will come to their senses on indoor seating....even if it is 50% capacity. Great place!
