    Though it was crowded, we did not wait long for our food to arrive. The food was excellent! We dined after dark on a cold evening, but I'm sure the view and outside dining are both wonderful. Great choice for couples, families, or girls night out!

    We chose Fleet Landing partially because we had seen the recipe for the crab, shrimp, and lobster stuffed hush puppies. They were wonderful. When we arrived, we got the last available table on the patio by the water. They had saved it based on our OT reservation to see if we wanted to sit outside. I tried having a lighter portion lunch and had the Fried Green Tomato Stack as my entree. It was really good. All in all, I would recommend FL for friendly service, good food, reasonable prices and a unique location right over the water.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 11/2/2014
    Loved the setting as much as the food! The view of the river and harbor was amazing as the sun set tonight. Our waitress was attentive and friendly, food served promptly. The biscuits with honey butter were warm, melt in your mouth good. The fried green tomato stack: nice portion of tomato to crab. The blue cheese salad wedge was perfectly seasoned and crisp. The main dishes were fresh and tender: scallops with the mashed potatoes to die for. The seafood pasta had tons of fresh scallops, shrimp, crawfish and lobster. A delicious meal with reasonable prices in a fabulous setting!

    Fleet Landing Restaurant was everything that we hoped it would be and more. The ambiance is great, the food delicious and the service was fabulous. Parking can be a bit problematic, but there isn't anything that can be done about that and the restaurant itself made up for the parking concerns. We went for my husband's birthday and will definitely be back! Tip- get the hushpuppies!!

    shrimp and grits were great-plenty of shrimp and sausage. The seafood gumbo was more an okra gumbo, it had two scant pieces of seafood, but the taste was great. The biscuits were great, and the pomegranate mojito was great. The appetizer lump crab did not have much flavor. At first it took a while to place our order, so more guest arrived and it took about 40 min to get the food. After that, the service and friendliness were fantastic!

    As we usually leave the downtown area for our visitors during the warm summer months this was our first visit to Fleet Landing for our season. Champagne and local Bulls Bay oysters made for a great start. Shrimp Salad Sliders and my favorite Scored Flounder with Apricot Glaze finished out a very fine meal. Try and sit outside no matter the weather to enjoy the great view of Charleston harbor and the cruse ship at dock right next door. There were several diners from the ship during the time we were there. Enjoy

    We booked our reservation through the online website and when we got to the restaurant we only had to wait like 5 minutes! Very impressed. The atmosphere was very relaxed and not too loud. I had the fresh caught salmon grits and collards. (Very huge piece) That was one of the best dinners I have ever had! It was my birthday dinner so I ate and enjoyed ever bite! Our server was JJ he was so on top of everything very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed, when drinks needed refilled we didn't have to ask for it he was already one step ahead of us! Great experience can't wait to go back!

    Fleet Landing is a great place for lunch. It was a perfect day to sit outside and enjoy the Friday special. The chef was a little stingy on the fish in the fish tacos but they had a nice flavorful dressing. We had a reservation for four and a fifth showed up and the staff was very accommodating.

    Only restaurant in Charleston on the water, situated behind the Custom House. Nothing fancy in the way of decor. Good basic seafood restaurant. Will say that the French fries were quite good. A simple side that is not often executed well, but here it is.

    Very busy the night we were there. Had to wait a bit for our reservation. We sat at the bar and chatted with people. We chose to sit outside, it was a mild evening. Waiter was nice and attentive. Food to me was average. I had scallops which were average. Husband had shrimp and grits...he enjoyed it. Not a bad place, would probably try again if we returned to Charleston.

    We were able to walk right in to the table with our reservation. Parking is limited but there are always people moving in and out. We sat down at our table at 6 pm and walked out at 630. We had appetizers and the shrimp and grits which were awesome. Our server Harrison was also amazing. He seemed to pop up at the right moments to check on us. Although the resturant was crowded it still felt intimate enough for us to enjoy our anniversary dinner. We will definitely recommend and visit Fleet Landing again.

    Every visit to Charleston, this is THE place we have to stop and take time for. Sitting outside for my family is a must as well. Nothing compares to dining right on the water with the sights and sounds of nautical life all around us. In the warmth of summer, there is always a dolphin to be spied nearby. The food is local and sustainable. This trip I opted for something new and got the shrimp salad sliders with their fresh coleslaw. A bit heavy on the dill but absolutely delicious. Everything tastes fresh and smells so inviting. Highly recommend whether it's your first visit or your fiftieth but if you want a table, use OpenTable and make a reservation. Quick, easy, and even customize your experience. Thanks, Open Table!!!
