Great fresh seafood with a great dining patio

Stopped here for dinner after seeing the parking lot full every time we passed. We were seated on the patio and it was an amazing place to eat. The seafood was fresh and prepared nicely, not over done as can often be the case. It is a little more pricey than some others in the area but the... read more

Sears is our favorite place to go hang out and relax. Have tried most things on the menu and everything is great! Ray Ray and Cameron at the bar will make you feel right at home. Staff is awesome!

We love coming here as a family. Our son loves the kids menu, and my husband and I love the crab cakes and soft shell crab! Can't go wrong with the grilled tuna either - medium rare here is definitely medium rare! It's awesome! And the service is always awesome with attentiveness and friendliness. We love Sears Landing, and will... More

Visited on Mother's Day around 2:00 pm. The restaurant was not very crowded. Service was very poor. My husband had to ask for coffee twice. I ordered a bloody mary. It was very strong. I asked for additional tomato juice to dilute it, that didn't help. Next I asked for water to really calm it down. That didn't help. I... More

Triggerfish was the catch of the day and it was cooked to perfection! A nice rub that complimented but did not overpower the flavor, I think it was the best fish I have ever eaten! (and I have eaten quite a bit!) Their Mojito was delicious, sweet and tangy. The fish was served with cornbread, also good, and my side... More

While staying in Surf City really wanted some good seafood. Ordered Shrimp and grits. I like a lot of grits (which is the cheapest thing on the plate) could barely find it. Shrimp flavor was very good. Had fried green tomatoes which were heavily breaded and greasy. My friend ordered crab cakes and also the fried green tomatoes. My husband... More

Lunch time meal-fresh catch was Wahoo. I ordered a mixed green salad with grilled wahoo. When our server came to clear our plates, I told her the fish was over seasoned and not good. She said the fish was marinated overnight and did not offer to take anything off our bill. It was hard to believe the fish that I... More

Had breakfast one day and lunch on another at Sears Landing. Casual, relaxing and good service. I would recommend.

My family and I have been coming to Sears Landing basically since they opened! It is always good and the staff is always personable. We are lucky to have Sears at Topsail for sure. Looking forward to drinks on the porch soon.
