We chose Fleets Landing because their menu included fresh fish and a variety of options for our family. The portions were small but the prices were not. We had to ask for bread and literally the bread was a sub roll with butter on it. We had to wait forever to get service. The menu really was not as diverse as we anticipated. The flavors were just ok for the sauce on the cod and other dishes were salty. Our teenagers thought the location was great but the smell outside of the restaurant was awful.

Great restaurant with waterfront dining available. Dine while watching various waterfowl and boats going by. Wonderful service, delicious food especially the seafood. Lowcountry options available. Excellent cocktails. Reservations recommended because of the popularity of the restaurant. Limited free parking.

The table was perfect to look out onto the water. My friends, from out of state, enjoyed everything about the Fleet Landing. The waitress was excellent - friendly, helpful and efficient. She was also very patient as we were talking and not paying any attention to the menu and choosing our lunch. She was fantastic! I've gone and had lunch and dinner at the Landing before and will continue to go there. It's the perfect place to eat.

Unfortunately, not as good as in the past! Food presentation just ok! My wife had the Fried Shrimp platter and I had the Fried Oyster platter 8 small Shrimp or Oysters , plenty of fries but bland Cole Slaw. Our waitress Megan was very good (best part of the meal)! Based on there prices and lack lust food I can not recommend them. It's a shame since previous visits were very good. To many other good restaurants in Charleston to spend my money at!!!

Overall, the food was very good, but they fall down on service. The entrees were delivered just a few minutes after the salad which is not acceptable.

This was not my first time dining at Fleet Landing but they never disappoint! My favorite item on the menu is the hush puppies appetizer— an oversized hush puppy stuffed with shrimp and lobster! Delicious.

The food was just okay. I’ve had better at home and at other establishments. They’re overpriced for the quality and serving size. The view is nice, the best part. The inside looks like a hole in the wall. Our server was great, but the bartender during Happy Hour was rude & unprofessional. They were rushing and they weren’t super busy. I’m local and I won’t go back.

Best seafood meal we had in Charleston! We ordered the special for the night Blackened Red Snapper. Delicious!!! Also order a starter of grilled shrimp with Pimento Cheese Grits. It also was a great choice. Finished the meal off with pecan pie. It was homemade and delicious!!!
I was concerned because it was advertised so much that the food would be institutionalized but not the case.
We also used the Open Table app for reservations. The best decision ever! No waiting at all. Table waiting on us!

Our anniversary dinner was made even more special due to our server Landon. He was very attentive and willing to honor a few special requests. They even gave us a choice of complementary champagne or dessert to celebrate our special occasion. Food was delicious and our request for outdoor seating was honored. Will definitely return to Fleet Landing the next time we are in Charleston!

There was nothing particularly bad about this restaurant but there was nothing remarkable either. Food was under seasoned and she crab soup had no flavor at all. Others in my party said their food was fine, but nothing special. With all the exceptional restaurants in the area I doubt I will be back but other folks may like this place.
