I was celebrating my and my stepdad's birthdays. We had a wonderful meal and service was the same. This is our second time having dinner here for our birthdays. We've enjoyed it so much that we have decided to make this our birthday tradition every year.

Our waiter was fantastic. Should have options for sides. The sides offered with meals are cheap - rise and beans. We substituted one of the sides and had to pay an extra $3. per person to get a baked potato. Most reputable restaurants would allow a reasonable substitution or give you a choice of sides. For the portion and sides, thought the meal was a bit pricey.

It was a Wednesday evening, about 6:30PM. Not real packed. At first, the wait staff was very attentive and brought us our drinks and appetizers in a timely fashion. Then a large group (21?) was seated, and apparently our waiter was assigned to wait on that group. It took an hour and a half between our appetizer and our main course to get to us. The food obviously had been sitting on a warming tray for that hour and a half. Who really knows how good it would have been? We understand the waiter was over worked with a table of 21, but it would have taken him one minute to bring us our main course. The view is fantastic, so we probably will come again, if I can convince my husband.

It was super hot for indoor seating. A/C was not working and no explanation was given about why it was so hot. I don’t know if this is normal or system was not working correctly.

A consistent place to go, food is good, service depending on who you get from good to excellent. We like the outside seating if it is not too hot, the breeze can be nice and it is close to the lake.

First of all Dominic was amazing. He frequently checked back with us throughout the meal, but was not pushy. We started with the Oyster Bar Trash that featured plumb tasty shrimp. For lunch my friend the Hemingway Snapper which has recently gone up in price (about $8 more). But it was still good with a generous topping of crab meat, two lovely spears of asparagus, and the pimento cheese grits. My order of Shrimp Fresca was the best ever made. The pimento cheese grits were flavorful and the shrimp and the lump crab on top finished it off. A great way to spend July 4th watching the boats on the lake, wonderful food, and spotless service.

The server we had was horrible. It took him ten minutes to acknowledge us at the table. When he did come his attitude was terrible. We give the special of the day. My husband ordered oysters on the half shell along with a Pina colada. We never received the oysters. After bringing I drinks to the table it took for me to call for him so that we could pay for our drinks and leave. I can't mention a name because he did not introduce himself. Worse Father's day ever. Extremely disappointed.

The food was excellent! The wait time for the food was really quick. We love to go there and eat and then watch the boats go in and out of the harbor. We brought my brother in law and sister in law this time and they also thought it was excellent! I only wish they would add some boiled seafood to the menu. Love it there will def return many more times!

We love going to Landry's and even have our "own" waiter. Father's Day was extremely busy. We really felt for the staff. Hungry people shoulder to shoulder. Hostesses, and wait staff were outstanding even when the people dining outside came in from the rain with their plates, and it was already standing room only. So pleasant and professional, and how the hostesses and wait staff kept a lid on everyone was a miracle. The food still arrived hot and fresh although the ordering time was long--we expected it, due to the volume of business. and, about our regular waiter, he was so great as usual!

We'll be back! Maybe not on a holiday though!

We visited on father's day and we expected the crowd. Our reservation was for 12:30 and we were seated at that time.

The only thing is it took almost an hour for the appetizer and another half hour for the entrée to be delivered to the table. Two of the guest at our table had cold food.

The server did the best she could and was very nice.

Thank you

Every time I eat here I am frustrated with how expensive it is! I would enjoy it much more if it more affordable pricing!! The venue is fantastic! No one has a better view of the lake, but 3 ppl $80 for gumbo & an app, no drinks, 5 oysters, & Etouffee. Service was average...a sweet gal picked us up when we asked, but no one was assigned to us. There are too many great places in this city to eat to pay so much for just above average food.

Even though I made a reservation, we had to wait 20 minutes to be seated and it was not crowded. I asked for a table with a waterfront view and was told no problem but, wasn't accommodated. My waiter never came to check on us during our meal and I had to ask another server for a refill on my drink. The food was fantastic and so were the drinks.

Landry's Seafood House on the Lakefront is a favorite place to take out-of-town guests. Always good eats, combined with a relaxing view of Lake Pontchartrain. Our server today was Calvin and he was very engaging, attentive and made our lunch visit that much better!
