We had a 2:30pm reservation, still had to wait about ten minutes before we were seated. Not too bad. We were seated outside, nice view. Our server did not come by very often to keep our drinks refilled. We ordered the seafood hush puppies. Always delicious, but they were delivered lukewarm, almost cold. The main courses came out ok. I had the whole fried flounder, my favorite dish there.

Outstanding. Thanks for being on open table. We came by cruise ship. Wonderful to have reservations ahead of time. Located right next to ship. Quaint building so nautically decorated. Beautiful views. Exceptional food. Loved the whole fried founder. Great friendly service from reception to waitress.

The service was excellent with very attentive server. Disappointed no fried oysters. The food was good but not memorable, as I type this I needed to ask the wife what we had. The atmosphere is very laid back with a nice outdoor view. Good Charleston experience

One of the best restaurants we’ve ever eaten in. The low county seafood pasta is very unique and is outstanding, as is the shrimp and grits. The she crab soup is rich and creamy with good crab flavor. The wait staff is one of best anywhere. They are extremely knowledgeable, friendly and helpful.

Hands down, best grits I’ve ever eaten!
Portions seemed to be smaller than I remember from previous visits. Guess they stopped serving biscuits with dinner service.
Otherwise, good meal and a great server.
Try the seasonal cranberry cobbler!

We thoroughly enjoyed our last meal in Charleston - lunch outside at Fleet Landing. Food and setting were great. Our server Lucas did a wonderful job - professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Will be happy to recommend this spot to anyone heading down to Charleston. Thanks!

The she crab soup is always really good here. Trigger fish sandwich was really only average. The noise level was so high that I couldn't hear my wife who was sitting across the table from me. We were well attended to buy our server.

loved the view , service was great and food was wonderful. very busy so make a reservation if you can but if not you won't mind sitting at the bar while you wait. we watched a cruise ship come into the harbor and dock right outside our windows. very impressive. don't miss this restaurant when in charleston.

We had a very nice dinner at Fleet Landing. Arrived early for our reservation and were seated quickly. Service was very good. The food was good, the crab cake appetizer was out of this world. Only complaint was they were out of fried oysters.

Large touristy place but with a nice waterfront view. We came for lunch, place was severely crowded, would have been a very long wait had we not had a reservation . Outdoor table with a supposedly nice view of the waterfront which was blocked by a giant cruise ship. Server was friendly and efficient enough. We had the she crab soup which we thought was quite good but we have nothing to compare it too. We had "catch of day" which was Mahi. Kind of dry. Sides of red rice and collards just ok.

Excellent, delicious food, I was looking forward to the crab cakes ever since I made the reservations and enjoyed them very much. Our waitress Kayla was excellent. We love the view it provides with our fabulous dinner of Charleston Harbor.

Always good food but our waitress was at our table every two
Minutes asking if everything was okay- it became annoying - her intentions may have been good but i have never had a more bothersome waitress. Otherwise goodfood, nice ambiance on the waterfront

I am just about desk so a table on the side porch was great. Just had to wait 5-10 minutes at 1:45 for a parking space to open up.
Everything else was just as prior reviews. Great food. Service. And view.

It’s always busy here and the service was a little slow due to that. I had the grilled chicken sandwich. It was dry and overcooked.

Great shrimp and grits. One of us had the crab cakes which were pretty good, too. My wife's complaint is that neither dish was accompanied (but should've been) by something 'crunchy', like bread, or salad. A food texture thing...

On a trip for my Mom’s 70th birthday and wanted to try something new on our second trip to Charleston and Fleets did not disappoint! We thoroughly enjoyed the ambience, the meal, the service. I had the shrimp and grits which was awesome! My mom had the crabcakes and she loved them as well. Can’t beat the fried okra okra strips! We wish we could’ve eaten more. Our server was Gloria and she even brought my mom a piece of complementary cake for her birthday. We will be back for sure.
