Found Templeton Landing by accident....and was happy we did. Had cocktails on the porch overlooking the marina and appetizers. The crab cake? A must! More crab in a crab cake then I have seen in a loooong time. Hardly any bread filler. Just plain seafood...More

Templeton Landing is a short walk from our Waterfront neighborhood, but we had been reluctant because, although the water view is wonderful, in previous years the food had been mediocre and the service terrible. Happily, that seems to have changed for the better. We ate...More

It really is tragic...the view and the ambiance is so incredible but the service is universally condemned. They stay in business because it is such a wonderful spot. If I wanted to be on the water I go down to Acqua's.
