The restaurant out front has good harbor views, but I prefer the bar side with friendly people and fun atmosphere. You can choose from the full menu, or from the pub selections. Lobster Nachos and Fish Tacos are among my favorites

This is a place you MUST visit if you are ever in Marblehead! Me and a friend were there in February for 5 days and ate there 3 or 4 times! Everything we had was amazing and I am still craving the claim chowder. All of the staff there was awesome but Rory was our favorite waiter, kept us laughing... More

Food was outstanding. Sunday Brunch menu was perfect. I got the Ipswich Fried Clams which were out of this world. Love the view.

The Landing is right on the water, with an outside deck overlooking the water. Freshest seafood, great drinks and the friendliest staff who talked about their love of Marblehead while we were there. If you go, you HAVE to try the Calypso Shrimp. !!! Their medium belly fried clams were amazing.

Lunch at the bar on a weekend was excellent. The soup choices were terrific and the bartender was very attentive.

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
