The View Puts Fleet Landing at the Top of the List


Fleet Landing, the only restaurant in downtown Charleston located on the water, has more than just a magnificent view to offer patrons. The contemporary ambiance and delicious menu options also deserve a mention alongside this restaurant’s spectacular location on the harbor.

Try the fried green tomato stack for lunch or the fried oysters with southern comfort barbecue sauce. They also have fried flounder, Charleston shrimp and grits and pan-fried shrimp cakes. If you’re looking for something other than seafood, order up the fried green tomato BLT or the fried chicken platter. You can’t go wrong.

For dinner, start off with the Fleet Landing stuffed hush puppies, which are filled with velouté lobster, rock shrimp, leeks and corn over creole tomato sauce. Then move onto a delicious Black Angus hamburger or Lowcountry seafood pasta, which includes fettuccini, shrimp, scallops, crawfish, mussels, Andouille sausage, asparagus, tomatoes and creole butter sauce.

Fleet Landing’s ambiance is the perfect side dish to your meal. In fact, it could be the main course. The innovative design both inside and out makes this restaurant hard to miss for passersby on Concord Street. The restaurant’s nighttime lighting adds a romantic vibe to this jewel of a restaurant right on the harbor. The modern interior décor includes light fixtures at the bar that give an edgy feel to a restaurant that is definitely nautical in nature. Check out the bright orange wall of life jackets and the nautical star accents.
