Went twice in 1 week. Super breakfast values, appetizers are yummy and overall prices are great. Bartender makes a good spicy Bloody Mary. Outside deck has great view and is enclosed in winter. Service is good, but not spectacular. Order got messed up on one visit.

Have been here before and service was good but food not so much. Ordered flounder,shrimp and fritters, fritters were awesome ,flounder was not local and breading awe full. Would think they would get local seafood especially for the prices you pay, it's not like it has to be shipped to them with seafood wholesalers all over the island! On North... More

Not sure what is going on at Sears Landing but my experience on 30 November was terrible. We arrived at 7pm for dinner, there were 2 other tables occupied. My wife and I ordered the pick 3 seafood (shrimp, oysters and flounder). While the shrimp and flounder had to be wrapped in paper to soak up the grease the oysters... More

In the past the breakfast has been great but this time something went wrong. My french toast was burnt and in some places I couldn't even cut through the crust. It was tough and chewy like it had been sitting out for a while and just reheated. I know they can do much much better so this won't keep me... More

Went on a Tuesday night few cars but we were told we had to wait for table when empty tables were everywhere. Waited about 10 minutes. Ordered 3 item seafood plate to share, seafood arrived about 5 minutes after we received our salad. Guy laughed and said it came out quick and took off. We had no extra plate and... More

By far best food on Topsail Island. Wife and I could easily eat lunch and dinner both here every day. Only thing this place could do to improve would be add oysters on half shell!

I gave this restaurant an "excellent" rating because of the view in the back of the establishment. Sitting right on the water, the view simply can't be beat. Food is average, service is good. No complaints.

Went for a late lunch on a Sunday and still no seating outside, so we sat inside. The view was still very pretty and the staff was nice. Our drinks got low before the waitress came to fill my husband's, but not mine. I ordered the flounder sandwich with asparagus. The asparagus was okay, too much oil and no seasonings.... More

The food was great. The atmosphere is wonderful. The fried asparagus is to die for. The sauces were excellent and portions were plenty big to share. Would definitely go back
