Excellent service and great food

We ate here several times with the family and the food was always great. The wait staff was very friendly and bent over backwards to serve us. The view of the docks was also very nice. I always had the seafood which never disappointed. The kids seemed to like their dishes from the kids' menu as... read more

We ate at Sears Landing twice in our week-long vacation because we enjoyed it so much the first time! The crab cake with island sauce is awesome, and the fried plantains were a unique treat. Save room for the key lime pie!! My only complaint is that it was really too expensive for us to have gone twice... But it... More

First time in five visits to Surf City that we tried this place. Wasnt sure when we first went in, both wait staff and chefs looked young, but those young kids know how to cook some food. Menu wasnt crazy expansive, but offered enough options for everyone, and theres always the fall back cheeseburger. Grilled tuna was awesome for me,... More

We had the soft shell crabs and the blue claw crab fritters and they were excellent. The service was extremely helpful and courteous. The prices are a little high but really not to bad for a resort area.

In our experience, this was a really nice place to eat. Honestly though, the menu is pretty uninspiring. Sure it's got one or two items that are interesting, but mostly it looks completely predictable--this wasn't a good start. But our waitstaff really helped us zero in on what might appeal to us and Wow. The food arrived and O MAN,... More

We tried Sears Landing on the recommendation of a friend of mine. We got the cheeseburger and liked that you could pick out any side item and were not limited to fries. I got grilled asparagus and my friend had fried green tomatoes. Enjoyed the view.

Arrived about 4:45 to beat the rush. Got seated right away. By 5:15 I noticed there was a line waiting to be seated. The serving staff were very nice and efficient. The food was delicious. We got the steamed peel and eat shrimp, crab cakes, and fried green tomatoes. My mom said it was the best fried tomatoes she had... More

I thought this would be a really nice place to eat but was quite disappointed. Their menu was very limited and needed more choices for those who don't eat seafood. Also there were alot of flies hovering around while we were trying to eat. One positive thing was that the wait staff were pleasant.

Just love that crab soup and cannot get enough of it. Had lunch with the family. It was very pricy but the food was delicious. Very little wait time for lunch. Tried to eat here the night before but the wait was over one hour.

This is the 3rd year in a row that we have dined at Sears Landing. For $100, 4 of us enjoy an appetizer, a salad, and 2 combo platters and leave stuffed. The service is friendly, the food is delicious, and the ability to eat on the deck of a marina adds to the whole experience. We highly recommend this... More
