Smith’s Landing: Making The Antioch Marina Memorable

From brunch to Happy Hour Specials and incredibly diverse dinner and lunch menus, there is something special for everyone who visits Smith’s Landing Seafood Bar and Grill, located in the Antioch, Marina.

Sunday Seafood Bunch Buffet

We had the opportunity to explore Smith’s Landing on a Sunday morning and were overwhelmed with the Sunday Brunch Buffet. Every Sunday, from 10am to 2pm, you can indulge in your favorite seafood delights, extravagant desserts, traditional brunch faire, such as waffles or French toast, and bottomless champagne and mimosas.

The seafood spread is nothing less than impressive.  Dungeness Crab, Alaska King crab, prawns, oysters prepared in the half-shell and as Oysters Rockefeller, and ahi tuna are just some of the options.  The crab pasta salad is rich and luxurious while the chilled roasted salmon with bourbon cranberry glaze is a perfect balance of sweet and savory.  For those that appreciate more traditional brunch options, an omelet station, carving stations, fruit, cheese and seasonal vegetables, alongside of waffles, French toast and made to order eggs Benedict are available.  Making brunch even more tempting is knowing that it is the best valued brunch in all of the East Bay. Plus, there is no other option in East County that provides brunch overlooking the water.

Experience the Best Views of the Delta

At Smith’s Landing Seafood Bar and Grill, the food is only one piece of the total experience.  The views visible at almost every seat within the restaurant are spectacular.  Even on overcast, rainy days, the view is overwhelmingly peaceful.  Daily, customers can enjoy their meals and cocktails watching the waters of the Delta pass by, and perhaps catch a glimpse of ships, yachts, or other sailing vessels.  Throughout the year, many special ships visit the marina – making the views even more interesting. The Tall Ships, Hawaiian Chieftain and Lady Washington visit several times a year and provide a unique dining backdrop.

For those of you who enjoy boating or kayaking in the Delta, Smith’s Landing has 10 boat slips to dock your boat or kayak. This makes Smith’s Landing an ideal place to stop and enjoy a meal, cocktails, or even catch a game on Sunday after a day out on the water.  The lounge offers a distinct menu of ‘shareables’ to balance one of Smith Landing’s craft cocktails, libations or wine options.
