This spot is located in downtown Jacksonville. Parking is plentiful and reasonable. It's a nice space to walk around and catch a meal. There were a variety of different types of restaurants. I believe that they have concerts there, there's a huge outdoor stage there. Also, you can catch the water taxis from there at a couple of places. The... More

I just returned to work downtown after being gone for over 10 years. I thought I would spend my lunch break wandering around The Landing like I used to. It was so disappointing. The place is run down and empty. The AC barely worked and most of the shops are closed. Unless you are headed there for a specific event,... More

I am from out of state and it has been a long time since I have been to Jacksonville Landing. I brought 3 of my friends to the Times Union - Terry Theater and really bragged about the Jax Landing and how we could grab a bite to eat there. Wow, was I embarrassed. It was so dirty looking, only... More

We used to frequent The Landing for dinner or just drinks but now we never go. It used to be a great place to pull up in our boat, but we were there this past weekend and the dock is in such disrepair my husband refused to pull up. Plus there are so many places that are closed, the property... More

I remember when the Landings was bustling with nice stores and entertainment. We used to visit often, eat dinner, take the free ferry, and enjoy our surroundings. Most of the stores and restaurants are closed. Three are some off brand, unknown shops where we were not even acknowledged when we walked in. We saw a water taxi, but not the... More

Both Bennys and Fionn MacCools Irish Restaurants are located in Jacksonville Landing, and they are both terrific. But other than that, there isn't much to Jacksonville Landing anymore. Its a ghost town and that's too bad, because it could be a great place for individuals and families.

Benny's, Chicago pizza and the Irish pub were good places to eat. The mall part is pretty run down and empty. Other than that pretty quiet place. Good place to watch sunset
