Fleet Landing Restaurant & Bar
A former US Navy debarkation point built in 1942, Fleet Landing lay vacant after World War II. Located on the eastern waterfront side of the Historic District, the 6000 square-foot (557 square-meter) concrete building was purchased by Tradd Newton in 2004. He opened the one-story nautical themed restaurant with Chef Drew Hedlund, whose menu includes classic and contemporary Southern fare with an emphasis on seafood. Blue Plate lunch specials are offered daily as well as a children's menu. The interior furnishings are casual and maritime chic. Diners can enjoy a panoramic view of Charleston Harbor from within the establishment or out on the welcoming deck.
Ordered the fried flounder sandwich. Food was delish. Was a busy time for lunch on a Tuesday as I felt there was a bit of a wait in between each visit from staff. However our waiter was pleasant and overall the experience was great.
I have eaten here 3 times this year. I have had nothing but good experiences. The blackened grouper was really good. The fried seafood platter was also very good. You need to try the crab stuffed hush puppies! Your only issues will be with parking. I would pay to park down the street to avoid the head ache in their tight parking lot.
I need only one word to describe this place -- YUM! The calamari steak was succulent; the best I've ever had. Likewise for the shrimp, oysters, scallops and grits. I've lived in the south all of my life and in 4 southern coastal states and I've never had seafood that tasted this good. While the food was teriffic, the service could have been better. We will definitely be back next time we're in town. It's only been two days since we dined there and I'm already craving them again!
Only restaurant in Charleston that sits over the water, great view of the harbor. Food is outstanding. We had the shrimp & grits, have had them all over the south and this was the best. Plenty of shrimp and andouille sausage, grits creamy and has a sausage gravy that is loaded with flovor. Forget the big name restaurants, this one is locally owned, is very casual with the best seafood in town. Service was great, also. Don't miss it.
