“Just enough and then some”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

My husband and I stopped in on a Saturday afternoon. We had fried green tomatoes, blacken catfish with crawfish ettoufee over rice and fries oysters. The presentation and taste of the fried tomatoes was simple but elegant. The blacken catfish spicy flavor was just right. Instead of a heavy breading the oysters batter was cornmeal being able to taste more of the flavor. The french fries were hot with a slight dusting of batter and seasoning covering each fry. Even though we were stuff dessert was calling us. The fried pecan pie melted in your mouth, the pecans were minced with a flakey lite crust. Vanilla ice cream and chocolate and caramel syrup was drizzled over. Bread pudding had a meringue top which was light but heavy. You could taste the bourbon. Service was excellent The food was freshly prepared and we look forward to stopping in at The Landing next time we go to Natchez.

“Tasty”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Pork chops with fig sauce were really flavored well but a little tough. The trout with rosemary potatoes was perfect.

The food is wonderful, especially the filet! My husband says the oysters are cooked to perfection. The atmosphere equals the outstanding food.

“Overpriced, average quality”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

We went here because the higher-rated Merci Beaucoup doesn't open in the evenings. We had fried green tomatoes and boudins for starters. The tomatoes were mostly tasteless, but the boudins were hot and very tasty. For mains, we went for meat pies and crab cakes. These arrived when we were only halfway through the starters. The two crab cakes were small and cooked too long. Largely tasteless. The meat pies looked like something out of a packet (anaemic pastry) but the filling was good. However, the jambalaya with the pies was cold.

Generally, we couldn't careless about service as long as the food is good. Here, it wasn't.
