Four holiday makers on the covered back terrace enjoyed the view of the sound and marina. Food and service were good, but little things detracted. The transparent shades to keep out the wind allowed a sizable draught to flow through, and could not be properly secured. For some reason, the tables in back seem to be two or three inches... More

Food was okay but overpriced for what it was. $9 for a plain salad with about 2 tablespoons of shredded mozzarella. Boiled shrimp was $15 for half a pound and served in paper containers. My friend's chicken salad melt sandwich was just okay. Service was adequate but we felt like an imposition. View from the back porch was nice. Probably... More

We have had some service issues, and yes, some of the items seem a little overpriced. However, overall, it is our second favorite place to eat when we visit Topsail. The food is consistent and delicious. Overall, the good far outweighs the bad. We will continue to visit Sears Landing. And their breakfast is awesome! Big, 3 egg omlettes for... More

This is my second time visiting this restaurant and very well pleased. Crab cakes are amazing as well as fried green tomatoes. Came with a big party of 8 on a busy Friday night and was seated within 20 minutes and the servers were very accommodating! Definitely recommend to anyone.

Although the food was good, very over-priced. I don't mind paying high prices, but everyone in my party (6) were still hungry when we left.

Chose this restaurant according to reviews and I think they posted their reviews about a completely different restaurant. What a terrible and extremely disappointing experience; an absolute waste of money! I don't mind paying top dollar for food that is worth the price. Dined with a party of seven others and not a single person at the table was happy.... More

Although we'd eaten dinner at Sears before, This was our first time having breakfast. We all had omelets - veggie, Western, & Greek. Delicious! They even cooked mine soft with no browning which many restaurants can't accomplish. We'll go again for sure.

During our vacation to Topsail Island NC. we decided to give this place a visit for dinner and so glad we did. Enjoyed fried oyster & scallops with a side of fried green tomatoes. The food was fantastic and service was fast and friendly. Will definitely make this a favorite for future visits.

I ordered the fried conch po' boy and was happy with it when it arrived piping hot. My wait person was not impressed with the amount of conch so promptly had more fried up and delivered to me. I was stunned at this exceptional level of care for the customer! The conch is perfectly cooked and the best I have... More

Four of us ate a late dinner on a weeknight. Our server seemed anxious to get her shift over with and forgot a few simple requests. Two of us had the special fish dinner. I had the crab cake, it was large, but mushy in the middle. I think dividing it into two would be better. The famous cornbread is... More
