OMG! The place, the people, and the food all equals one AMAZING experience. We came here on our 14th anniversary, after my less than a week return from deployment, on a road trip. A local firefighter recommended Sears Landing to us, and we couldn't be happier with our experience. Amanda, our server was top flight. She was sooo patient and... More

Great service and the food was wonderful.....breakfast, lunch or dinner you won't be disappointed. Mahi Mahi was #1 and their homemade sauces delish.

There is a nice area to sit while you wait overlooking the water. I ordered a combination platter with fried flounder and fried shrimp. Is was prepared very well and was not... More

We went to Sears Landing Grill for a take out order. We were greeted right away and our order was taken right then. The combination platter we got was excellent. It included Shrimp, Scallops, and a Crab Cake. All were lightly battered, not the heavy doughy type, and cooked perfectly. The crab cake had more crab than bread and the... More

Several friends had recommended this restaurant from past trips, so we were anxious to try it. They were crowded and we had to wait a while on a table, which was expected. You can sit in rocking chairs overlooking the waterway while you wait, which was nice. The four of us all ordered seafood. The food was okay, but it... More

Flies mosquitos etc. We were seated outside by bar. They said inside they would have to seat us in 2 separate booths. We all enjoyed our food. My fried flounder was delic as... More

If you like deep fried fish you need to try them out. We started with the blue crab fritters (the size of tennis balls) and they were delicious. I ordered the platter with a choice of 3 deep fried fishes and had the soft shell crab, oysters and scallops. The portions are huge and the fish was lightly breaded and... More
