We, a party of 7, chose to dine at Sears Landing based on the reviews and very glad we did. We arrived about 7 PM on a Wednesday night to a 1/2 hour wait and a full parking lot. The full lot was a good indication we where at the right place:) They had a nice porch with limited seating... More

Had dinner here our last night of a weeks vacation. First, service was quick and friendly. Atmosphere was ok, inside was generic and not really authentic. Has a nice outside seating area that overlooks a marina. Food was average at best. I had the seafood combo with the scallops, shrimp and oysters. The oysters were hard to chew and gritty.... More

My family had a nice meal at Sears Landing. We arrived around 6:15 on a Thursday and had about a 30 minute wait. We enjoyed the view from the docks while we waited. The staff was very friendly and prompt. We were a little disappointed in the limited menu, mostly fried items. We had a fried scallop sandwich, fried flounder,... More

This restaurant serves outstanding seafood. The soft shelled crabs were the best I've had this side of New Orleans, and the scollops that one of my two lady friends had were the best I've ever had anywhere. Go a little early and get an outside table.

Great deals on breakfast. Wonderful omelets, NC country ham, and the prices are very reasonable. You can sit on the covered porch and enjoy the daily drink specials. Nice view of the waterway ! Very relaxing.

Nice atmosphere - even if you have to wait a short while for a table. There is an outdoor patio/bar, and porch waiting area dockside. The food is excellent. I enjoyed a Ramano Cheese salad and the shrimp platter. Service is equally good, and a host will give you a pleasant greeting, and goodbye. They also serve generous glasses of... More

Beautiful setting, nice restaurant, excellent servers. Cons: hostess told us we would have a 15 minute wait, however it was really 45 minutes. The real kicker was the 2 seater table that we were given was empty the whole time ?? Food was good, but fried tomatoes too greasy, and fried potatoes turned out to be frozen French fries.

This place was suggested for steak - but they only have seafood. The seafood was fabulous and fresh ... everyone was very happy. B
