  • Nice on-the-water Dining
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    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!

    I eat lunch there monthly. The service is not always the best- when needing a refill the server doesn't usually come back to check. Food is pretty good and you can sometime see dolphins in the water. Great to sit outside!

    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.

  • Anniversary Dinner
    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.

    Very reasonable price for the high quality food we had for lunch. We had a house salad, fried shrimp platter and Sheepshead. All was delicious and was enhanced by a view of the bay. Sunday brunch was crowded so reservations are highly recommended.

  • Dinner on Water
    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.

  • Good Food - Too Fast
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/1/2014
    Drinks arrived in a reasonable amount of time. We ordered an appetizer and entrees. I also ordered a salad. For my entree i ordered blackened snapper. My salad arrived while still eating the appetizer, and our entrees before I finished my salad. the blackened snapper was unremarkable. Not spicy nor near a hot cast iron skillet. Offered dessert, but why should we stay when they are focused on turning tables. Server could have made more money with another drink order or two. Tipped about 15% because meal was rushed. We are locals and won't be back for a while. If you want a formal environment go to Hank's (beware of noise), if you want best seafood in town, go to The Wreck.

    We decided to try Fleets Landing because everyone we talked to in Charaleston had recommended it...and it didn't disappoint us. It was a damp and cool evening, but because the porch was covered and had heaters, so we were able to enjoy a wonderful outdoor dinner. Our service was very good and the food lived up to the praise we had been hearing from people around Charleston. We had a wonderful dinner and enjoyed a beautiful view of the harbor.
