Nestled along the gorgeous St. Johns River in Downtown Jacksonville, The Jacksonville Landing is home to year-round entertainment, a wide variety of waterfront dining options and a cozy inside shopping mall all of which are sure to complete an afternoon or evening of fun. For more than 25 years, The Jacksonville Landing has been the spot to stop in downtown Jacksonville. The Landing hosts more than 600 events each year including Florida/Georgia Weekend Celebrations, the annual Christmas Tree Lighting, New Year’s Eve and TaxSlayer Bowl Celebrations, St. Patrick’s Day and July 4th. Weekly events include live weekend entertainment in the center courtyard offering a variety of music including classic rock, oldies, contemporary, jazz, and top 40. The Landing also hosts a myriad of events for the community such as charity walks and runs and the Earth Day Ecology Fair. There is always something going on at The Jacksonville Landing, and a complete list of all Landing events can be found in the events section. Restaurants at The Landing provide a great view of the gorgeous St. Johns River. Visiting each restaurant is like experiencing a different cuisine and a different atmosphere each time you make your way to Downtown Jacksonville. All of the restaurants are open seven-days-a-week for lunch and dinner with the exception of Village Bread Cafe, which is open for breakfast and lunch. The Landing is also home to Mavericks Live, a nightclub which offers a variety of late-night entertainment plus national concert acts for a fun night full of dancing and good times.

If you want mediocre restaurants, retail stores, and a food court with no name franchises, this is the place. The only time we visit is when they have a known band play in the courtyard area. Other than that, run!

We spent a day in Jacksonvlle last weekend and ended up here around lunch time. The store area was OK. It was a Sunday afternoon and many things were closed. The area down by the river was wonderful! We spent most of our time here...More

This is one of the coolest places in Jacksonville that isn't really "Happening." I estimate that more half of the retail spaces in this riverside mall are unoccupied. But the ones who are there and making it work are really excellent places. Koja Sushi is...More

Food court is upstairs. Other places to eat downstairs. Water fountains for kids to run through to cool off. Small shopping mall. Right on the St. John's River. I love this place. Come here often.

It's not that big of a place that you need a map. The Landing consists of less than a dozen (not particularly great) restaurants and a few stores. None of which are very impressive. The only thing that makes this place... More
