Ate outside on the deck, a beautiful breeze! The fried shrimp and crab cakes were delicious.
Service was prompt and professional. Anyone who likes seafood by the water should try this restaurant.

We enjoyed the deck and view but felt our experience from service to food was of lesser value than what we paid. We came here for our anniversary and the staff was very welcoming and said "Happy Anniversary" to us, which was very nice. Our server was very attentive when she noticed that my husband didn't take but a few bites of his soup. When he mentioned he didn't like it she took it off our bill which was very nice and not something we expected. We both had that nights special, Mahi mahi and swordfish which were okay. My green beans were excellent, my husbands Cole slaw was, different. Not what I was expecting when the server explained it as a mayo/vinegar mixed slaw. We both selected French fries for our second side and weren't very impressed when they came out as regular shoe string fries. He had two beers, I had two glasses of wine and our bill was just over $100. We felt our meal didn't measure up to that. The deck was great and I'm sure they have lots of good menu items. I would recommend for the experience and would be willing to try again.

Food was awesome except for the hush puppies. They made me some unstuffed because of my selfish allergy and they were just crispy sweet dough balls. Otherwise it was awesome.

Great food, she soup was excellent as was the shrimp and grits and seafood pasta. We arrived early and sat at the bar while waiting for our table. Ordered an appetizer because we were hungry. It arrived 2 minutes later! Bar tender was excellent. As was the waiter for our table. They seated us early an outside as requested. Perfect weather, food and service

The food was amazing. You have to try the hush puppies as an appetizer. I got the tuna and my husband got the trigger fish- both dishes were incredible! Another must have is the pimento cheese grits!

Wonderful! Got there 20 minutes early on our reservation and our table was ready. Was greeted with “Happy Anniversary!” from hostess. Waiter greeted also with Happy Anniversary and two Complementary glasses of Sparkling white wine. Used our phone to take perfect - his signature- photos of us. Food was super great. Would recommend the stuff Hushpuppies to start with. Shrimp and grits - best EVER. Finish with pecan pie. Views are perfect. Could not ask for a better experience!

Great place over all. I saw this place recommended in a show on the cooking channel so we booked weeks in advance before our trip.

We had to still wait about 15 minutes although plenty of tables outside. Once seated, we were seated in the worst spot ever. Asked to be moved and was told the better tables were reserved for those that had rezzies. We explained we had had rezzies for weeks and after talking to someone, the hostess moved us finally. Whether this excuse is a real one or not, probably not great to actually SAY that as all customers want to be thought of as special ;)

Took awhile to have waiter take our drink order and finally ordered wine with dinner. Had preferred to have been able to order wine BEFORE dinner. Bottle of wine did not come until dinner served. We were frustrated as we are drinkers (not T-Totalers ;) and probably would have had 2 bottles if time permitted. There were 4 of us.

All in all the food was delicious and everyone friendly, just a couple of customer service issues that made the experience good but not great.

The service was way better than the “Bloody Mary” I paid $10 for. That said, our server was wonderful. He was attentive but never made us feel rushed. We were able to sit outside, which is what I’d recommend. Part of the experience there for me was eating outside, it just made everything better.
Food was good, all be it pricey.
Do yourself a favor, make reservations. You will wait if you don’t, and wait a while.

Waitress highly recommended shrimp and grits. Two of our party ordered it. What came was two bowls of overlooked shrimp covered in brown gravy. Not good. Great view but rushed atmosphere and average food. Not what it used to be.

I saw Fleet Landing on the Food Network Channel. The food looked so good, I promised myself the next time I was in Charleston, I would go. I was not disappointed. The staff, the service and the food... all outstanding! I definitely plan to go back to Fleet Landing the next time I am in Charleston, and have recommended others to go as well.

This restaurant had been recommended for two specific dishes, the South Carolina Crab cakes and the Charleston Red Rice. We both had both and they did not disappoint. We tried crab cakes in several places along the coast and these were by far the best! We sat on the deck so these was little noise. Great job in keeping the birds away! Had our stay been longer we would have returned. Highly recommend it.

Great experience at Fleet Landing! Staff , service and food were excellent. We arrived early for our reservation and the host explained that he would try to seat us early (which he did) and directed us to the bar while we waited. I stood at the bar for maybe 5 seconds and I was greeted and given a drink menu, while looking at the menu the second bar tender approached to be sure we were taken care of. And then he told us where he had available bar seats at. Once we sat down we were greeted quickly by our waiter who was also wonderful. THE FOOD IS EXCELLENT. Our table had the shrimp and grits appetizer, fried oyster salad, trigger fish, she crab soup, and several great drinks from the bar. All the food was excellent!!! Fleet Landing does it right!
