I went to Fleet Landing a couple weekends ago and I was not impressed. I had fried oysters for the meal and crab dip for an appetizer. The oysters seemed to have some kind of filler in it or maybe it wasn't battered the way I like it (maybe under or over-cooked?). In every bite there was white creamy looking stuff (cottage cheese looking), not what I'm used to seeing. Each oyster was the same. The taste was good but the texture/appearance was not. Is this a normal fried oyster for them? I've been to Gilligans (my favorite fried oysters so far...never have been disappointed 7-8 times) and Crab Shack (twice-they were good too). The crab dip tasted really fishy (less crabby) and peppery. So far my favorite crab dip has been the Beer Parlor in Savannah and Coast:Bar and grill in Charleston.

I'm wondering if this is just personal preference or if this is unusual for Fleet Landing. The waitress and atmosphere was really nice, no complaints there. I love friend oysters and usually can't wait to eat more. If Fleet Landing was my only choice or experience, I would not be a fried oyster fan.

Thoughts?
I went to Fleet Landing a while back and I am of the same opinion. There were 4 adults and 4 teenagers and the food was mediocre and/or undercooked and the service was just kinda MEH.

Camo dipping!! Wow, way cool! Does it only work on hard surfaces, or clothing too?

If it were cheap and could be removed, that's the kind of things we'd have loved to do to everything in someone's dorm room back in the day.
