THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Potowmack Landing Restaurant Restaurant Review

: One of the most picturesque restaurants in the Washington area, this place sits on the Potomac River at the side of Reagan National Airport, thus commanding a breathtaking view of the Washington skyline and the river traffic. The view is worth the trip, though the food is staid and predictable. The menu offers a fair smattering of trouble-free seafood dishes from an adequate she-crab soup to crab fritters, a lobster and scallop entrée, and grilled salmon and grouper. You also may want to check out the more robust Potowmack jambalaya. Your best bet may be to drop by for lunch so you can dine al fresco on the wraparound deck and appreciate the view while you enjoy the Potowmack portobello sandwich.
