The timing is right for a lunch or dinner on the deck. Great service and very friendly staff. Bar imported from England and so are a number of its customers!

A group of us sat in the dining room last Saturday. Yummmm....! We ordered lobster rolls, fried calamari, broiled haddock, and even pizza (we were hungry). What a treat! The food was exquisite; the service--hysterically funny and entertaining thanks to Sean--a most dedicated server and first rate humorist to whom we send our congratulations. The desserts were delicious (had cheesecake... More

My family have been regulars at the Landing for over ten years. The staff, who have been there for ever, greet my two sons like loving uncles and aunts. Items on the menu change with regularity but the food is always reliably good. We love looking out at the harbor but the pub is very cozy too.

It's such a shame that, in gorgeous coastal towns like Marblehead, there aren't more good dining options situated directly on the water, capitalizing on the extraordinary views of the Atlantic Ocean. One of the few exceptions is the oldie, but goldie: The Landing. Unfortunately, the location is the best thing to commend this restaurant. Despite our repeat, persistently hopeful visits,... More

The landing has 3 different seating areas to choose (in the summer) - the pub, the dining room and the deck. In the summer, there's nothing better than grabbing lunch in the sunshine with some wine on their deck. The owner/manager is a great supporter of Marblehead organizations and that's reason enough to check out The Landing. Parking out front... More

We had dinner on Dec 23rd at The Landing. Great casual dining, food was very good (best part is the bread served with olive oil dipping setup!). Our waiter, and all the wait staff we observed, was fantastic! Friendly, there when you needed him, gone when you didn't. He suggested a special warm drink for me because I had a... More

Ate here twice on our visit to Marblehead. Started with a couple of drinks at the attached pub, which has a good selection of gin. Then into the restaurant. The weather was a bit chilly so we did not use the decking, which was a shame. The service and food was excellent, with sensible portions. Will definitely visit again when... More

…were a great way to savor the last days of beautiful fall weather in Marblehead. Our friendly server, Maureen, recommended the chowder and it was absolutely delicious! After a few glasses of wine, enjoying the sunshine and sailboats in the harbor, my husband and I split a Chocolatini that was large enough for 4. Enjoyed the lunch and the view!
