    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/28/2014
    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.

    We really enjoyed being on the water while we enjoyed our food. The server was polite, and the food was excellent. We had fried cod which was flakey, meaty, and full of flavor. The biscuits are amazing!

    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 started going to Fleet Landing shortly after it opened. The food was great as was the service and the view. We stop at Fleet Landing every time we go to Charleston. I have recommended to several co-workers who also stop there every time they travel to Charleston. It's hard to beat.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/18/2014
    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.

  • Must indulge gem in Charleston
    golferswife
    Dined on 10/18/2014
    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!!!

    I had dinner with my parents and husband here on a Wednesday night in mid-October. I had reservations but probably didn't need them. The restaurant was full but not packed. Parking is available on-site but there is also a garage very close. I loved the atmosphere. Cool but not trendy. Nice but not stuffy. We sat outside on the porch and enjoyed a wonderful sunset with our meal. The biscuits and honey butter are delicious starters. We enjoyed the crab cakes, scallops, and fried shrimp for dinner. All very good served with tasty southern favorites like grits, collards, and red rice. I recommend this restaurant.

    Went here while honey mooning in Charleston. We sat outside for the great view and it was wonderful! Our waitress was great and the foid was terrific. We started with the stuffed hush puppies, and they were phenomenal. I'd recommend them to start with! We both had fish, and it was great! The apricot sauce was so yummy. We left full and happy!

    I booked a reservation at Fleet Landing because I enjoyed eating seafood overlooking the water. We ordered the hush puppies as an appetizer and I was very surprised. I expected a basket of puppies but we were presented with a plate of beautiful brown puffs overflowing with seafood and standing in a drizzle of well drawn sauce. The steak and seafood were cooked perfectly; the waitress was very attentive and informative. This is a good choice for a night out in Charleston.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/11/2014
    This restaurant came highly recommended by a friend who has visited Charleston several times, so I was anxious to check it out. We met two of our friends there and had a table outside on the water. It was a lovely evening, perfect weather, beautiful view. WAY more casual that I expected. Kind of dumpy, nothing fancy. The food was "ok" but nothing to write home about. It seems like guests are paying mostly for the view, which is spectacular. I am glad we gave it a try, but there are WAY better restaurants in Charleston & we will not be returning to Fleet Landing to dine.

    We were seated right away at the table we had requested. The view was beautiful. The service was reasonably timely given the large crowd. The appetizer was delicious. The main meal was truly awesome. I chose the swordfish and it was arguably the tastiest swordfish I have ever had. My wife's flounder also was excellent and the white chocolate bread pudding we had for dessert was "to die for". Overall we loved Fleet Landing and plan to return there whenever we entertain visitors to Charleston.
