Thanks to the Charleston CVB, my husband and I stumbled upon Fleet Landing while looking for a place to dine in downtown Charleston. The food was delicious and reasonably priced for fresh seafood, the service was excellent, and the restaurant atmosphere warm and casual.
Hours of operation (subject to change)
Dinner: Monday – Thursday 4-10, Friday 5-11, Saturday 5-11, Sunday 5-10
Brunch: Saturdays & Sundays 11-3
I ordered the Charleston Shrimp & Grits. The shrimp was tossed with sausage and served in a ham gravy over grits. The meal was plated attractively with a garnish. I was pleased that the dish did have an unique twist with the sausage and ham gravy but yet was traditional enough to satisfy my craving for the southern favorite. The freshness of the seafood was also very distinct in the dish.
My husband ordered the Lowcountry Seafood Pasta, which consisted of Fettuccini, Shrimp, Scallops, Crawfish, Mussels, Andouille Sausage, Asparagus, Tomatoes in a Creole Butter Sauce. His meal was also wonderful (and yes, I stole a bite myself).
Free restaurant parking was available (a luxury in downtown Charleston), but the parking lot was small and cramped. We ended up having to back the entire way out of the parking lot to get out.
For those looking to save money, the lunch menu is significantly cheaper than dinner, and children’s meals are available. The full menus with prices are available online. Fleet Landing menu.
T-shirts and fan gear are also available for purchase.
We went early in the evening and during a non-peak tourist season and were seated quickly, but reservations are recommended by calling 843-722-8100.
