Didn’t appreciate the long wait especially since we had a reservation. This is one of the few waterfront restaurants in Charleston consequently the place was jammed with much confusion exhibited at the front desk. Our server Mike was absolutely the best- great personality, very knowledgeable about the menu, and displayed a true sense of hospitality throughout our visit. Kudos Mike - hope to see you again. The food, as expected, was very good. Fried green tomatoes and hush puppies were delightful although slightly over cooked. The entrees - tuna, shrimp and grits, seafood pasta, and low country boil were nicely prepared and presented- kudos to the kitchen. Noise level was high due to the hardscape decor. Overall a nice experience with friends who were visiting with us. Put Fleet Landing on your list of places to try when in Charleston.

It was great sitting there. We had the best waitress who was always there asking if we needed anything. I couldn’t decide what I wanted and kept changing my mind. She recommended the swordfish and it was amazing. So tender and the sauce was great.

Heard about this place from a friend so had to try it while here on vacation. Made reservations in advanced which made it much easier. The service was excellent as was the food and drinks. Had there not been so many other restaurants we want to experience in the Charleston area we would definitely go back and still may if time permits.😬

This is a very nice restaurant. You will definitely want to make reservations in advance or you're in for a long, long...wait. Fortunately, we made reservations! The outside is nice and you do get to look out on the water. I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars because besides the murky water, there really isn't much to look at (although that's not the restaurant's fault.) Also, I will always deduct from any restaurant that does not train the waiter/waitress to introduce themselves. Why do they not say, "Hello. My name is...? anymore? I will always deduct if I have to ask their name, and that is a strike against management because the waitstaff here was nice and friendly. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant.

For lunch get there by 11:30 to park for free. Need reservation that you can make within the hour. After that there is a line and the parking lot is full and you have to pay. Food was great and so was the service.

I booked my reservation to this restaurant two months in advance for my vacation to Charleston. The morning of our reservation I called the restaurant and asked them about their pet policy. I informed them I had an emotional support animal and I was told I could bring her. Upon my arrival to the restaurant I paid for parking and walked over to the restaurant. Before we even got through the door an extremely rude employee informed us we needed to leave with our dog. He suggested we go to a restaurant across the street instead. I was so upset that I had booked two months in advance, called the morning of my reservation to ask about the pet policy, told to bring her, and then turned away and told to go elsewhere.

I ended up leaving the restaurant and dropping my dog off at the hotel. We came back and the hostess apologized for the rude employee and the mistake. They gave us a nice table, nice server, and the food was good.

Everything was good. However, I’d recommend putting lumps of crab into the She Crab soup. It was pretty bland.

With a superb indoor table, our meal was off to a great start. Our outstanding server Nicole made everything else really come together. We started with stuffed hush puppies and rum old fashioneds and moved on to crab cakes and shrimp and grits. Yum, yum, yum! Perfect Friday lunch!

Fleet Landing is currently under construction; the inside dining had very little air conditioning, and we visited in July. It was very hot, almost uncomfortable.

Fleet Landing was the best restaurant we went to in our time in Charleston! Reservations are needed, and at least a day in advance—when we went people were piling in masses at the door. The service was outstanding: the waitress was so sweet and helpful with accommodating my mom's lactose intolerance, and the server who brought our food was so great as well. The food itself was excellent as well: the baked cod was incredibly tender, and my order of shrimp and grits and she-crab soup were fantastic. They have multiple portion sizes (I'd say the smaller portion is good for one person; the bigger one is probably enough for two) and the prices range from quite affordable to slightly more pricey, so it was nice that they had options. Highly recommend!

We had a reservation and still waited 20 minutes. The male host didn’t pay attention and put down that we wanted first available despite asking for inside. He was telling some families that there was a 40-45 minute wait and then seating other families immediately (no groups had reservations). He was downright rude to some people. There was another young girl that was seating and she was also rude. Her personality was condescending.

On a better note, our serving Olivia was wonderful. She was very friendly and personable.

The crab dip wasn’t very good. However, the shrimp and grits was delicious.

We were visiting from MN and had made a reservation based on a recommendation from someone back home. The food did not disappoint! The flounder was amazing (coming from someone who never eats seafood) and our server was super friendly and helpful. Thanks!
