On main street, in centre of town. Good menu variety. Fast, friendly service. Eat inside (small space) or on the patio (larger area, with awnings to protect from sun and all the rain). Good size portions, especially the pizzas.

I get to Franz about every 6 weeks or so and regularly eat at The Landing. Awesome menu, really friendly staff and always a cold beer or two to be enjoyed. You can’t go past this place for a great feed, the meals are huge and I’ve never had a bad one. Highly recommend the “Mountain of Nachos “ but everything is good.

We had dinner on a Wednesday - full house! Despite that the service was quick and nice. The food however was so so. Meat was a bit tough, an rather tasteless. Prices are relatively high.

Good breakfast with a wide variety of options. Very friendly helpful staff. Coffee and tea available as a bottomless option.

So it's Good Friday and so there is an additional 20% charged. This is the norm here and I don't object as they presumably pass this on to their staff for working on a national holiday.

I was persuaded by another customer to try the Ribs which turned out to be a mistake because the night before I had some of the best darn ribs ever. I'd say that these ribs were just OK, rather a sharp sauce and the meat was chewy.

Our waiter was great even though it was his first day. However things went wrong when there was a changeover of staff and we were waited on by an American lady whose speciality seems to be Sarcasm with a smile. This became full on rudeness as she rushed us to finish dessert and pay the bill.

No tip given.

Would not return anytime soon in case she was there again, shame really as otherwise it was a good experience
