Quite possibly the best grilled tuna I've ever had. Crab cakes and oysters were also excellent. Friendly and responsive staff at a nice quiet location on the sound. Reasonable prices and great outdoor bar. Highly recommend.

We had a thoroughly outstanding dinner here last week. The seafood was fresh and cooked perfectly! Members of our group had scallops, yellowfin tuna, oysters and shrimp. Everything was great! We truly enjoyed our meal (the collards were excellent, too). The different dipping sauces were delicious! We will definitely go back next year!

Sears Landing was recommended to me by someone I met walking on the beach - he said they had great and reasonably-priced breakfast. While we didn't make it there for breakfast we did have lunch before our visit to the sea turtle hospital. Everything was GREAT! Delicious and nice size portions!! The sweet tea was a bit too sweet for... More

Our first visit to this restaurant was outstanding. The food was very fresh and prepared perfectly. We had broiled flounder and the amount of food is generous. The view from our table overlooked the dock and water. We took a little walk out back on the dock area after dinner. Service is excellent at this restaurant and the fresh (not... More

I've eaten at this restaurant a couple of times when visiting North Carolina. It's off and kind of slow because it's busy. However, the most recent visit was defined by subpar service. It took an unusually long time for our uncomplicated order to come. Scrambled eggs and eggs over easy with meat. Not even toast. Plus my order was wrong... More

Very friendly waitstaff, delicious crab cake. Salad leaves a lot to be desired. Tasted my husbands scallops, delicious. They could have been cooked just a minute more. Grilled shrimp very good.

Place was packed. Noisy. But management knows how to handle it. Nice water view, harbor. Waitress was busy but still pleasant and efficient. Grilled scallops, steamed shrimp were very good. Try the Bimini sauce. A very casual place but fits the Surf City vibe.

A must stop for delicious local seafood!! We decided to try this place out and we were not disappointed. If you like good seafood then you must stop here. The tuna steak was amazing cooked medium.

Stick with the fresh seafood here. Fried scallops and shrimp were incredible. Not much breaking and cooked to perfection. The coleslaw was very good and fresh. Nice job with the catch of the day which was Mahi Mahi and special sauces. Nice to have so many choices with what sauce you wanted to use! Great view of the bay!
