The worst shrimp po’boy I’ve ever eaten. We should have sent it back. I can’t believe a storied seafood restaurant like Landry’s would let this abomination get within shouting distance of its kitchen.

Our outdoor dining was a great experience! We wanted our friends from Connecticut to experience the ambience of dining at our New Orleans Lakefront. We had outdoor seating and our server guided us to a table under the patio cover. It began to lightly drizzle but our meal was not interrupted since we were protected by the cover. Overall it was a great evening with the bonus of a light breeze. The food was great!!!

Typically it is good. Maybe due to recent Hurricane Ida stick was out of stock on everything I ordered: Jack Daniels, Makers Mark, oysters, and the management refused to substitute items for same price for Happy Hour. Food tastes this dsy.

It paid to go on a Tuesday! No lines, and lots of tables. We like to go just before sunset 🌅
Everything was great.

Nice view over the lake. wonderful to sit on the terrace on a hot day. I was disappointed with my shrimp salad. I am used to shrimp salad with avocado and cilantro and lime juice.

Entering Landry's requires walking up two flights of outside stairs; the result provides diners with an outstanding view of lake Pontchartrain. Seating is both indoor and outdoor. In the summer, outdoor seating is good for sitting and drinking beer, and the indoor seating, which still provides an excellent view, is perfect for dinner. The seafood component of the menu is extensive, but there are alternatives for persons with an aversion to fish and shellfish. The atmosphere is good; the place can be a bit loud at times and the waiters are doing their best to keep the customers happy, although they are clearly understaffed (and they know it). The food is very tasty and very fresh. I had a blackened redfish with a topping; the topping was great but the fish did not have the blackened zing and was a bit overcooked. My wife had stuffed flounder; she loved it. She also really enjoyed the view and the overall ambiance (so did I...but she had the better view). Overall, an easy thumbs up. It is very much worth the visit.

It was such a nice place and to find a restaurant outside of the hustle and bussle of Bourbon Street was nice as well. The ambiance for an anniversary lunch on the lake was superb!

Even though the restaurant had many people waiting Landry’s took us on time for our reservation time and accommodated our request for outside seating. Our waitress explained that service would be slow due to the crowds but we didn’t find service that slow. The food and drinks were very good. Had the fried fish dinner, Landry’s gumbo, fried shrimp platter and wedge salad. Also got the triple chocolate cake to end the meal.

Landry's has never been known for its outstanding food, but it is usually OK, but not a peak times. I was there last Sunday at 2 in afternoon and all was great. Went there last night at 6:15 and service was slow even though the customer load was not high. As the customer load increased, service became poor ... friendly but very s l o w. Gumbo too salty, one fish dish was great and one was dry. Veggies were overcooked. Calamari was as it should be. Drinks were outstanding ... well made.

We enjoyed our outing; however, understand my mother and spouse were initially put-off by the greeter. They felt overlooked and ignored, because the greeter did not acknowledge nor attempt to seat them in the order in which they arrived.

The meal was good. The seafood and andouille gumbo was tasty, a little salty probably due to the sausage.

Still, our visit was relaxing and nourishing. Nick, our waiter, did a great job!

The restaurant was beautiful. The view of the lake is worth mentioning. There is free parking right outside. Now the food.. For an atmosphere that perpetuated swank with table cloths and cloth napkins...not having a bread basket on the table was a warning. I had to ask for it. They were cuting corners..Be ready..our appetizer, a labeled sharable was not enough, for one, for that price. ..maybe my perceived portion is a lot bigger than most. So, I ordered the chilean sea bass, with an additional topping. Unfortunately, I had to fight with shrimp shells between my teeth and crust to get a perfect bite. The dirty rice was luke warm as if it wasn't microwaved enough for the platter and the vegetables, you can tell were from frozen, glassy and limpy. Nothing was fresh! The $50 tag, for just my entree was not worth it! I really hope that the quality of the food was not compromised because of the economy and pandemic. I was disappointed and will not return.

Fried food at its best! Onion strings, zucchini, fries all were breaded and fried to yumminess!!! Fish was fried to a crispy delight.
Service was super slow but we took it in stride.
Hamburger was nothing special. Just a normal burger.
If you’re looking for a fried food smorgasbord, THIS is your place.

Ambiance and service were great! Food was good not exceptional but the view out the side or front window is exceptional. Easy in and out and right on the lake so you can take a walk after dinner. Get there about an hour before sunset to enjoy the event!!

This was my first time going to Landry's at Lake Pontchartrain. I had made reservations and was a little late due to traffic but was seated promptly after arriving. The view of the lake was spectacular. The server was very friendly and attentive.

Overall flavor of the food was good, however all the food was warm at best and my fish was overcooked. Which was odd because the food came out pretty fast. From seating to departure was about 45 min and that was with appetizer and entree.
