I had the wedge salad and shrimp chowder soup. Both were really good. We also had a calamari appetizer and it was a large portion a few people could share.

Horrid. Our appetizer and entree came within 80 seconds of each other after a 20 minute wait. The fish was to come with asparagus/pancetta risotto. I ended up with a plate full of mushrooms of which I am allergic and not a grain of rice! It was horrid. Never going back again.

Happy Hour service was poor and food was average. They should staff appropriately for busy times. Had to drink a gin martini out of a fluted glass and I don't think it was gin. The waitress never came back to check on me so I could not verify. Went somewhere else for dinner.

The ONLY reason I gave this review an overall rating of "average" and not "poor" is that the food was quite good. NOT worth our time and money, however, due to the lame service. After traveling in from Alaska we were looking forward to a nice relaxing dinner with our family on the harbor. The hostess had a very rude... More

I'm a Landry's member. I've been disappointed here before but thought I'd take a chance. I was terribly disappointed in the service. I'm showing family around the area and we were more casual. I had 3 adults, 2 teens and 2 kids at 3 pm. The hostess seemed unwelcoming. Didn't smile. She came back and said they were expecting several... More

We love the M&S in Baltimore, so it was a no-brainer to dine with them during our visit to National Harbor. Getting a reservation that worked well with our show time was a breeze, as it was pretty early (5:30pm). The issues started when we arrived. We were seated, and we're greeted quickly. All good. Drink orders placed, our group... More

The two of us arrived 20 minutes late for our 7:00PM reservation on a busy Friday evening, but we were seated right away anyway. Our water was very prompt and took our orders for wine. I belong to Landry's Select Club and we decided totake them up on their special offer for the tire course meal for $28. The meal... More

The staff was attentive but the kitchen failed to deliver. The wrong order was delivered and the meal delivered was cold and not cooked to order. Too bad! What should have been a pleasant dining experience was underwhelming!
