Had the warm lamb salad, which I enjoyed at the fire pit outside. Beautifully cooked lamb and generous portion of lamb with the salad. Great service too - checking I was warm enough of needed extra heaters. Superb.

Food here was excellent - one of the best Vegetable Burgers I've had. Service very good. Open when you need it.

Despite the lack of choices in the small tourist town we were pleasantly surprised by the size and quality of the food at The Landing. The prices were quite reasonable and the outdoor area was a great place to sit and enjoy the lovely fall evening. We tried the roast pork, venison stew, a pizza and a plate of nachos and were impressed by how delicious it all was. If we were there for more than one night we likely would have gone back for another meal.

The servers were attentive, yes, but to the point of being overkill. We had three separate people try to take our drink order and even more try to take our dinner order. I will say though, that the service was speedy and extremely friendly, despite our confused server not knowing what bourbon was. Overall, not too bad and probably to be expected for a town with a very transient community.

We ate dinner twice here while staying in Franz Josef. The service was very welcoming and attentive, the meals prices were reasonable and the food was really tasty. The vegetable soup went down particularly well in the cooler evenings. We sat out on the covered deck, near the gas flame fire which was lovely.
