The Landing Restaurant is one of the best places to share a special dinner, with a special person, for a special occasion. The food is outstanding, and the waterfront view is nice. Although not one of the cheapest places around the lake, it is worth...More

A trip to Smith Mountain Lake alone will take your breath away but dining at the Landing located on the shores of Smith Mountain Lake will leave you with a wonderful dining experience. I personally love the Sea Bass, but Bruno and Tiffany offer so...More

We have eaten at this lovely restaurant for years and the food was excellent, but this year was not good. The waitress made no suggestions, and the food poor. Parts of it were inedible. No compensation was offered. Money wasted. We were very disappointed.

It was a dark and stormy night...No, really, we came to Smith Mountain for a brief vacation, lovely area, but most eating establishments were mediocre at best. We found this jewel on line and although it had 3.5 stars and the Dairy Queen had 5,...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I currently have a reservation for 8 on Saturday 4/30 at 6pm. I have dined at the landing several times, but not in the past 5 years. The food was always good. However, based on a number of reviews I have read here, service seems to be a challenge for this restaurant. Since we will be arriving by boat and sunset is at 8pm, we need to feel comfortable we can be finished and on our way by 8:30, before total dark on the lake. Should I be optimistic that service has improved, or change our reservation to the Blackwater Grill?
