The meals were mixed up. Didn't get the right sides we ordered. Had to send everything back because of allergy. Took another 10 min before one person received his meal. Staff was apologetic but I won't go back for dinner.

We are never disappointed ! Their sides are delicious ! My husband’s favorite is mussels with a crab cake and red rice. This time we had lunch ! It was a beautiful, but chilly day and our server was able to seat us in full view of the water ! I had a yummy blue plate special with fried chicken, mac n cheese and collards. He had shrimp n grits ( couldn’t do mussels at lunch ) and for fun a side of red rice that we shared. Server was top notch , no wait , meal arrived promptly and very hot !! We certainly will visit again !

Overall very standard fare. Service was good. Area looks very dark at night. Perhaps in the summer it has more appeal.

Casual setting, upscale service and food. Thanks Mike for all your suggestions and wonderful service. Good wine for less than $40 a bottle. Crab cakes that are mostly meat. Flavorful dishes and fresh seafood. The plexiglass between the booths is awesome it made us feel like we could visit and relax.

Such a great location (and will be even better once the construction next door has been completed).
We were running late for our reserved time, called and they were gracious about our tardiness, holding our table which we were happy was outside on the covered deck. We had a wonderful view of the Harbor and Fort Sumter.
Our waiter was charming, quick and attentive but not overly so.
And the food! The shrimp and grits were superb, the herbed fish flaky and fresh, the shrimp platter delicious and good portions.
It was a delightful experience and we highly recommend Fleet Landing Restaurant and look forward to our return visit.

Everything was great, except for the sound of the pile driver on the property next door. They are building a new hotel next to Fleet Landing and driving piling into the sand. There is nothing the restaurant can do and hopefully it will end soon.

Immediate seating with reservations. Saw several people waiting. No problem parking next door for $5. Lot construction going on in this area. Ate inside during lunchtime. Personable, efficient waiter. Hubby liked his seafood. My fried pork chops & mashed potatoes were good—just tad salty (lunch special). Dessert menu limited. Pleasant experience and would def return.

Friends in from out of town, so wanted history, charm, ocean and great food/service. Fleet Landing knocks it out of the park every time! The calamari steak rocked it once again. Charleston Cobb salad, low country gumbo, and fried oyster plate rounded out the meal. Watched the pelicans catch their lunch while we ate ours. Beautiful day for an outside table!

Our second visit. First visit was so delicious we couldn’t wait to come back. Had the She crab soup, mahi-mahi special and a fried shrimp and oyster combo. Really tasty. Mahi was moist with a great light roasted tomato sauce. Sides are great too. Love the greens and red rice. Will be back again on our next visit.

To bad they are building the new hotel next to them, parking lot is gone and the noise from them pounding in the pylons was loud and shook the building.

Our only disappointment was the heavy construction in the front of the restaurant. The picture on their website showed their former parking area in front.....no reference to the construction, and no mention that we would have to pay for parking next door.
I believe they need to take out that picture.....and make some reference

I wish I could give a better review but our waitress Miranda had taken 30 minutes to place our order. Also, my husband had sweet tea and she went to refill it with coke and my husband stopped her and said I have sweet tea, and some coke had mixed in with the tea. Waitress did not realize she had poured some coke into the tea and tried to pour more tea on top of it mixed with the coke she had tried to pour before, My husband had to ask for a new glass with sweet tea since she didn’t realize she had mixed coke with his sweet tea. She did apologize but for a restaurant being downtown and the price of food I would expect better service.
