We stopped here for lunch one day. The menu seemed rather small so we both ordered cheeseburgers. The burgers were big and nicely seasoned. The fries were extra crispy just as I ordered. The burgers were quite messy and I ended up eating it with a fork, but it was very tasty. I considered getting the chicken salad sandwich and... More

We've eaten breakfast at Sears Landing several times during visits to the Topsail area. It's consistently good. The staff is friendly and accommodating. We had our dog with us, and they actually have an area where you can eat outside with your dog. Our wonderful server even brought him some water. The popular screened deck eating area overlooks the intracoastal... More

We enjoyed a late lunch in the porch. The plastic curtains kept it warm and cozy. The food, as always , was delicious! I was on a special diet and they accommodated my request with ease. I had grilled mahi over greens and my dining partner had a tuna filet sandwich. The tuna filet must have been at least 10... More

We stop every year to eat at the bar and visit Ray Ray, Surf City's favorite & most congeniel bar tender! Great drink specials and fabulous fresh seafood. We tried the flounder sandwich, scallop sandwich and Wahoo. All were fantastic!! The view of the inlet is amazing!

Delicious grilled flounder & scallops. Waitress very sweet & accommodating. Little pricy for the atmosphere. Clean & I loved being able to interact with chefs, instead of them hiding in the kitchen.

We went on the advise of several people and we were not disappointed. Both of us had the seafood of the day sandwich which was delicious. I had a side of fried green tomatoes and my husband had the fried plantains. Both were very good. Nice place to watch the waterway.

Service fair. Not extremely attentive. Came for dinner. Had bluecrab fritters. They arrived very dark, had a burned taste, mostly filling, very little crab. Scallops overdone and chewy, Mahi was the fish of the day and overdone and dry. Grits were very "different". Overall, it was simply sustenance with very little flavor. The bill for two was $58. Was very... More

I visit every time I am in town which is usually once a year. It is on the inlet so the view is great and the wait staff was very pleasant this time as well as during all of my visits. This visit, they were all dressed in Halloween outfits and we were served by Wendy ( from the Adams... More

This restaurant is right on the inlet so offers a neat view and vibe. The menu is small and the food is average but it's still a neat place to try.

I have been going there three or four times a year for several years now For fried seafood this place is hard to beat. Try their collards they are great. I know it's not what you normally think of as a side for seafood but I suggest you give them a try

Thank bradboss
