I really want to love it.  Unfortunately my last two visits there have been disappointing with multiple messed up orders, marginal service, and so-so food.  Hopefully it is just growing pains and things will improve.

What's the latest on The Landing?  Anyone been there recently and have any reports on the food and hospitality?

We went a couple weeks ago. Busy (friday night) food was good, price reasonable, somewhat slow but we weren't in a hurry.

Three of us went over the wknd of the opener. All of us had hamburgers, they were good. Little slow with the bar order, but not too bad. Mark, the owners dad came around to all the tables and introduced himself (he's helping out).  I already knew him, but was nice to see him work the floor. Prices were good. It looked like a few locals were there- even Jake, one of the previous owners was there. My wife wants to take me there for father's day, so I'll be back.  Wish they would update their Facebook page with specials and other info.

So how about Bayview?  Anyone know when they will be open?  It'll be nice to have more choices on the lake.

I was up at the VC today and enquired about bayview, sounds like they are hoping to be open for the week of the 4th.

Was up a couple of weeks ago and went over for lunch. Had nice younger waitress and was her first day and she did fine. Middle age lady was helping her assume it was owner?  Food was good. Couple of us had a big salad and had walleye added. Huge piece of walleye. Looked like a decent lunch crowd. We really like the place.

We went at the end of opener weekend. It had a nice crowd but wasn't busy at all. Good vibe but they struggled with the food. My salad and my wife's sandwich were both good. They massively overcooked the cheesecurds so when the waitress brought them out, she said that another batch was on the way. That was at least good customer service. Our daughter's pizza took forever because when they pulled it out of the oven, they realized that they had put hashbrowns on instead of cheese. I honestly don't know how that happens unless it's crazy busy, but like others, I chalked it up to a new staff. I've been to enough new restaurants to know that the wrinkles need to be ironed out.

 

I'll make it back there. They got the atmosphere and the customer service right, so I'll wait for them to get their act together on the food.

How did the pizza taste? I'm thinking that might not be too bad!

I can see how it could happen.  Remember that these days all the prep people are wearing gloves, so might not be able to feel any difference.   Or both could have been frozen...

I would think the different items would be marked, or do you mean they wear gloves over their eyes?

Typically they are in those stainless steel "hotel pans" on the table or at the prep station.     I would presume that they aren't marked since the cooks should be able to tell what stuff is.  

 

On the TV shows that show restaurant kitchens, it isn't obvious that ingredients are labeled.   Maybe some seasonings but not like cheese or potatoes.   Watch "diners drive-ins and dives" sometime, he's in the kitchen of all these smaller restaurants.   But who knows how some person at the landing mistook shreds of potato for shreds of mozzarella?

Maybe he or she was trying to invent the "hashbrown pizza". 😆

With bacon and cheese it might not be too bad.

I don’t believe anyone has mentioned if they are bringing the traditional Friday night fish fry back ?  If so how is it ?  

 

Really liked the salad bar / fish fry before they got rid of it …

Since they brought out and served us the badly overcooked cheesecurds, I was actually hoping to try a hashbrown pizza. Sadly they didn't. I might try making one of my own. I suppose that the tough thing would be to crisp up the hashbrowns....maybe you put cheese underneath, then hashbrowns and any toppings. I might mess around with this!

 

Thanks The Landing

We stopped in for lunch on Sunday and met Mark the owner. He is kind of a quiet guy. He stopped after our meal was almost done and asked how everything was. The prices on their burgers was good and we got a solid lunch for a fair price.

 

On a side note- Life of Riley Resort has breakfast from 7- 10 every day of the week I think. We stopped in on Saturday and had the Gilson Boy's Breakfast- 2 of everything eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, French toast and 2 slices of toast with coffee and OJ. Really nice break from fishing hard and good breakfast all around. Load up the family and friends and check them out.

 

Fishing was very poor for muskies- lots of hours for our few fish.

Isn't that the mantra for muskie fishermen?

Not always- just need to be smart about it. Paying your dues may pay very big dividends:)
