The Landing was first established in 1972 and has withstood the test of time and the elements. Located on Marblehead Harbor our "On the Water Harbor Views" can't be beat. Our award winning Chef Alex Pineda brings culinary excellence to each dish and our service is comforting and professional. You may have seen Alex on the Food Network during his episode on Chopped which he won or on other shows featuring his food. Our Deck and Patio offer great views and atmosphere with Fresh Seafood right form the dock. Along with Steaks, Duck and plenty of Vegetarian and Gluten Free offerings you'll be sure to find what your looking for on our menu. We are on the water in the Historic District and close by Fort Sewall and Crocker Park as well as the Jerimiah Lee Mansion. Great wine and drink lists will accompany the ever changing menus created by Chef Alex.

    Stopped in for lunch on an cold November day. Curry mussels with lemongrass were tender and delicious. Cocktails were great. Waiter was personable and attentive. Enjoyed sitting on the heated porch despite the gloomy weather.

    There apparently was a water problem and a shop vac was being used. It would have nice for someone to have told us rather than wondering all through the meal. Everything is expensive these days but i am still surprised by the bill. I eat salmon medium rare At every restaurant but, this is the first time i got it very rare.

    Went early so it wasn't crowded. Our waitress, Diana, was excellent! Loved the food and loved that the restaurant manager stopped by to see how we were doing and then came by with an extra app from a tasting that was in the back room for us to share. It was such a sweet gesture and really impressed some guests we had brought from the South Shore. Thanks for a great night!

    The food was a little different but delicious. Mussels cooked to perfection, an interesting arugula salad to start. Salmon with beets and onions was different. The pumpkin risotto combined interesting tastes. Lots of families, so it was a little noisy but a fun place. Finished with coffee and tiramisu that was creamy with a great combo of coffee and chocolate. Everyone was friendly, and they had background music that was upbeat.

    Times on line say open till 9pm Wednesday. Open Table allowed a reservation be made for 8pm. Showed up a little before 8pm and the restaurant was not open and no signs of life. Fix your online time postings and coordinate with open table.

    We arrived early and were graciously welcomed. Everyone we interacted with was very pleasant. The food was delicious and a frosted glass for a beer always gets bonus points from me. We were told by a local that the view is beautiful and we can’t wait to go back in the summer to hopefully enjoy the outside!

    Food was phenomenal! The waiter we had was the best I have had in years, pre-pandemic experience! He was highly personable, funny and engaged with us as customers, but not over the top or too much. Knew just when and where to check in, verbally!

    Would not go back. Portions small. Ordered "Healthy option" grilled swordfish with sauteed spinach and mushrooms. Fish was just OK. Everything was salty, salty, salty. Mushrooms sauteed in teriyaki sauce!!! Chef is way, way too in love with salt. How is that healthy?

    While we did have a reservation, it took 3 different employees to seat us. 2 different hostesses asked us to wait, walked away and never came back. Finally a waiter seated us and after 25 minutes, we stood up to leave and then a waitress came over. I viewed at least 4 employees standing around while we sat at the table.

    Okay cooking but very small portions. I had a weird agnolotti and couldn’t tell what it was with a giant marrow bone in the center. The pasta was a black looking bale of hay?? The taste was good anyway. Good thing I wasn’t hungry. It was an appetizer portion for $32. The Tuna tartar was a weird concoction with miso Very small portion but tasty anyway.

    I have eaten at the Landing over 100 times, and this was the first bad lunch I have had. My husband ordered the Fish and Chips and it was outstanding" I ordered a Caesar salad with shrimp. The lettuce was uncut so I had to cut it. The dressing was fine. But the shrimp were horrible. The wonderful waitress told me they had a Cajun seasoning. Honestly, I wasn’t sure they were even good. She offered to talk to chef about getting me another protein, but we were on a tight schedule so we couldn’t wait. She certainly said all the right things. Fortunately my husband shared his fish with me!

    Had dinner one night in Marblehead and was very pleasantly surprised. Everything here was done well from the drinks to the desert presentation. Our waitress (and I'm so sorry I can't remember her name) was so patient and super attentive. Understood my martini order perfectly, which is very unusual. Tried both the clam and corn chowder. Absolutely marvelously done. Shared the baked haddock with asparagus and parsnip whip. Best dish we had in either Salem or Marblehead. Don't know what that sauce was, but it was amazing!! And the parsnip (if you can believe this about parsnip) was delicious as well. I don't normally recommend may restaurants, but this was a slam dunk! GO!
