Mom and dad went there by themselves earlier in the week for a “date night”. They said it was awesome and the waterfront view was gorgeous, so we decided to go.
When we got there, you could definitely tell that this place had really good seafood just by looking at the walls because they had fishing net stuff and life vests hanging up. We had a reservation for five o’clock, but we got there at 4:30. Don’t show up before five because they don’t start serving until five and you’ll have to wait until five! You can sit at the bar to wait, though. And they may even seat you early if they are ready.
When we were seated, they put us right next to the window. You had the option of sitting outside, but it was on and off rain, so we decided not to chance it. We had a great view. We saw two container ships, two sail boats, and a schooner. And we could see Fort Sumpter in the distance as well.
For our appetizer, they gave us these really good sweet biscuits. At first, you think, “Eh, regular biscuits.” But, then when you actually bite into one, it’s like heaven in your mouth. And then you put that crazy, whipped, sweet butter on them and it’s like heaven in your mouth plus a thousand! Just keep them a-comin’.
I got the Fried Sea Scallops Platter. The scallops were perfectly cooked and the breading crust that it made when they fried it was really delightful. It gave a nice crispy element to the dish. For my two sides, I had the Southern Slaw (which is a tangy version of cole slaw) and mashed potatoes (I liked those a lot). It also came with hush puppies. I did not eat them because I am not the biggest fan of hush puppies. But, my dad ate one, but said they were just O.K.
I would recommend Fleet Landing to people who love seafood.
SAM: I got the Junior Fried Shrimp with French Fries. I liked it. I cleared my plate of the shrimp. THE VIEW IS AWESOME!
Now for my “patented” restroom review: The bathroom was clean. There wasn't much on the walls of bathroom. Basic place to do your business.
