Stop by for the soft shell crabs!

First, ask for Molly to serve you. What amazing customer service she will offer you! The soft shell crabs were light, not greasy and very flavorful with plenty of meat. The Fried green tomatoes were also tasty, with light batter and a horseradish type aoli sauce to die for. If you have time to... read more

Went with my wife and two kids and the food was average not worth the price swing how everything was under seasoned. Location is great but the service just plain sucked! Had 3 different people wait on us and to be honest I wouldn't recommend it based on our visit.

Our server was very nice, but that was about it. We were there for brunch, and it wasn't very busy. The menu was boring and small. I ordered a seafood omelette. The shrimp and fish in it were so overcooked and dry and flavorless that even with a hangover it was unsatisfying. The shrimp were not de-veined either (ew) Oh... More

Sears Landing has amazing food. A little pricey, but I can't make Crab Balls or Seafood Rolls at home, so it is worth it. The beer is always very cold. The staff is very friendly and attentive. Being able to take the boat there makes it even better.

We took our family here based on Trip Advisor reviews. All I can say is, it should be rated higher. Best seafood we have had all week. Seated quick and service was great! Mahi was fresh. Crab fritters are fantastic! A must visit for sure!

We live nearby so have been here for all meals at some time or other but I love coming here for breakfast. It's so pretty when you can get a seat outside on the porch overlooking the Intercoastal Waterway. The omelets and coffee are delicious. It's also fun on Friday nights to go and get the $3 margaritias!
