Great spot on the head of China Lake with its own boat landing. Chicken baskets and Steak bombs are a must have, I get my bombs toasted. They play music outside all day long that is family friendly. I like the upgrades to the property and cant wait for it to open again this year! Very friendly staff. Best pizza... More

The landing serves ice-cream fried clams pizza and so much more. As a boater on china lake we love the fact that we can dock our boat there and get lunch or a snack. Food is good and comes pretty quick. The picnic tables looking out at the lake are a nice touch

These folks serve Gifford's Ice Cream (YUM), they also have a full drive in type menu. Their fries are awesome, the burgers could be a little bigger, but still very tasty. Their fired chicken family meal fed two adults and two small children and there were numerous sauces to choose from. They have a great location near the only public... More

Ice cream, soft serve, burgers, dogs, seafood on the shore of China Lake. An active day on the water will whet one's appetite. Nice folks, a cut above the normal.

My family and I had dinner at The Landing in April 2016. The chicken basket and ice cream was on point, but my daughter's pizza was the most bland pizza I've ever tried. She's only 4 and she even refused to eat it. For the price, scenery, and most everything on the menu, The Landing is great! I just recommend... More

Ice cream is my favorite at "The Landing" The foods quite good, for a order & go type of stand. It's not a sit down restaurant however,it truly makes up for it with outside picnic tables right on "China Lake". This makes it a very pleasant experience. The service is very friendly & the staff is really knowledgeable regarding their... More
