Charred Octopus

Truly the best charred octopus I have ever had! Thank you Chef JP for an awesome meal! Between the apps, small plates, cocktails and amazing dessert we were overwhelmed with the quality and flavor of the food. Thank you! Look forward to visiting Carlson's Landing again!

Crème Brûlèe

Just had a wonderful Mother's Day brunch at Carlsons Landing. Everything from the crab cakes to cream brûlée was outstanding.

Lobster Roll

Loved it! Perfectly steamed lobster meat in just the right amount of butter, garnished with shaved carrots (nice touch!), toasted, hearty roll. I subbed salad for fries with a lovely harissa dressing—great for dipping too:) Attentive service throughout.

Mahi Mahi

The Mahi Mahi was exquisite! Flavors outrageous and at the same time subtle; my partner said he would best describe this dish as "vacation on a secluded tropical island." We also shared the Steak Frite which was cooked to perfection and very delicious as well. And the views!!
