“Charleston's Best Waterfront Dining”
Charleston's Best Waterfront Restaurant has a view that is a distinctive destination unto itself. Housed in a 1940s retired naval building on the east side of the Charleston peninsula, Fleet Landing Restaurant features Chef Drew Hedlund’s classic and contemporary Southern seafood fare in a setting that celebrates the area’s waterfront heritage. The restaurant’s “maritime chic interior” caught the eye of Food & Wine Magazine which featured Fleet Landing in their trend spotting “Where to Go Next” column. Encased in a hurricane proof, 6,000 square foot concrete maritime structure, Fleet Landing juts out over the marsh on a reinforced pier and boasts oversized windows that offer an unobstructed view of the Charleston harbor. Built in 1942 by the US Navy as a debarkation point for sailors, the building lay vacant after World War II until it was acquired by the South Carolina Port Authority in the 1960s and used for storage. In 1988, when a 21-year-old Tradd Newton pointed out the unique building to his mother and made the prediction “One day, I'm going to put something in that building,” the structure was in disrepair. Fast forward 16 years and Newton, with the guiding vision of Charleston architect Reggie Gibson and Newton's wife/business partner Weesie, is seeing his dream realized.
Fleet Landing boasts that they are the number one waterfront restaurant in Charleston. It is the truth! Everything from the venue to the service and especially the food! I would recommend this restaurant to anybody local, or visiting Charleston
The food and waiter were fantastic. My husband had shrimp and grits. He hadn't had shrimp since college. (A long long time ago). He thought it was wonderful. I had the crusted cod which was delicious. The green beans were wonderfully seasoned. Our only complaint was the parking.
HUSH PUPPIES! That's all that really needs to be said; you're missing out on some of the best seafood in America if you don't dine here. Do yourself a favor
Great food and gorgeous view. Definitely recommend.
The only downtown restaurant with a view of the water, Fleet Landing is a reliable source of local oysters and a Lowcountry-style gumbo.
