New couple (young) very pleasant and have changed decor. Hard working, super food and great ambiance. We are sure they will be a great success. Staff very friendly and despite being new to the business were quite quick. We will return.

I have eaten here a couple times on business, and it's just really bad. The servers are very sweet, the people nice, the view great. But ugh. don't eat the food. And don't bother with the wine, either.... And they can't do breakfast either.

Poorly run establishment that had GREAT potential. Lets see if the new owners do a better job with that awesome location? New name is Puddle jumpers. We will see. . . . . .

The best part of Al's Landing is the lake view in Tavares. The menu seems to have limited choices. The servers are friendly, but a little slow. Food seemed a bit over priced. But, well worth a visit to enjoy the view.

This restaurant is planning to re-open in mid-September. Considering it's location and following I believe it will improve greatly -- and it was not really bad before -- just limited menu.

Poor management, unable to keep proper inventory always left things unavailable. Numerous issues with paychecks kept turnover high, and good waitresses would be hard to find.

My $9 meal was a quater head of wilted lettuce. Probably a better watering hole than restaurant, based on the customers who were drinking cosmos.

Haven't been here for awhile. So while we were out and about on a Monday we thought we would stop for lunch. We always liked it because it is on the lake. You can dock your boat and they even have places for water planes...More
