Fish & Chips

There are fish and chips, then there are Carlson's Landing's Fish and Chips! Amazingly flavorful fish and tasty fries. We were so happy we took our server's recommendation!

Baked Clams (6)

The baked clams are absolutely delicious! I could have easily made a whole meal out of just these!

Chicken Sandwich

Overall one of the coolest places in the area to get food and drinks. We sat at the bar while the bar tender was creating some sort of masterpiece. While we were sitting the bar tender taught us all about the drinks he was making and the intricoes of his position. Really made the experience memorable. But if you are not sitting at the bar this place has a beautiful ocean view and view of the harbor. Feels like you're on vacation.

Rohan Duck

The duck skin was crispy to perfection! Of course one does not order duck for just the crispy skin however When the skin is still moist and fatty and not crispy it's a total bummer. Fret knot this skin is perfect and the meat is cooked to perfect temperature at your request. It's really a delicious yummy duckbreast.
