Fleet Landing Restaurant

Constructed by the U.S. Navy in 1942 as a departure point for sailors, Fleet Landing offers diners stunning views of the Charleston Harbor. The restaurant lies within a 6,000-square-foot, hurricane-proof structure that went unused for decades following World War Two. In 2004, visionary Tradd Newton realized his dream of reinventing the striking space, and Fleet Landing was born.

Today, diners enjoy seafood dishes in a rich historical setting. Fleet Landing offers lunch and dinner seven days a week, plus brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. Menu and reservation information are available here.
