When you walk into The Landing, you are greeted with an ambiance of distilled history & spirits, an aroma of carefully prepared American cuisine, and a camaraderie that welcomes all! Originally established as a hotel in 1848, the building now called “The Landing at Fountain City, Wisconsin” is a quintessential bar and restaurant located along Great River Road.

Our specialty lies in serving good libations, offering casual and fine dining menus, a four season room with majestic river views and a multi-purpose social, music, and game room for all to enjoy! Here at The Landing, we are most proud of bringing together friends, family, and passersby to break bread or tip their glass while engaging in healthy conversation.

If these old walls could speak, you’d hear stories from hard-working lumbermen and women who built this town, immigrant farmers who fed this town, and saloon proprietors who served this town. We won’t mention the Bordello that formerly occupied the upstairs – another chapter in our rich, storied past. America was still in her infancy in the mid-19th century when the bricks and mortar were painstakingly assembled on the corner of 1 North Shore Drive and Liberty Street.

A lot has changed at The Landing over the past 175+ years. Recent changes include a remodeled look, new ownership & staff, and menu options for any budget or occasion. One constant has remained however – the majestic view of the mighty Mississippi River from our outdoor patio, refurbished deck and Great River Lodge!

Oh, and we would be remiss if we didn’t mention the recently completed expansive 180-foot Fountain City North Landing dock located in our backyard! Whether you’re a first-time visitor to this recreational gem or you call the drift-less zone home, there’s no better place to go and watch the river flow… The Landing Bar & Restaurant in Fountain City, Wisconsin – rekindling new memories while celebrating the past!
