We had a large group in our party (16), so we went early. A variety of ages from 3-70 and a number of kids. The service was quick and the food was really good. While waiting for our table, we enjoyed a drink from the friendly bartender and sat on the rocking chairs. There was a great view from the back porch.

We shared the wasabi tuna appetizer and loved it. I ate the Mahi and it was very good.

The only bad part was the parking. It can be tight, especially for larger vehicles. When leaving we were unable to get around a few vehicles. I had to reverse out of the parking lot (which was a little dangerous considering the traffic on the road).

Would definitely come back again.

We had the combination platter. Crab cakes are really good. Real crab with no filler. Excellent sauce. Good portions. The three item combination is a ton of food for a great value. The mixed drinks from the bar were not very good, but we weren't there for that. View was awesome. We ate outside by the bar and it was a great evening. Highly recommend.

We stopped for dinner on our first night in this area. Though parking is tricky, we were able to be seated quickly. Our service was great with each server walking past us offered to refill a drink or answer a question. Because it was very hot, we chose to eat indoors. The shrimp and girts I ordered was some of the best I have ever eaten! My husband was equally as satisfied with his fish dinner specail. I wish we had had the opportunity to eat here again before we left our rental. Most definitely a stop again if we are in this area again.

Breakfast at Sears Landing

As always the water side view and location were exceptional. The breakfast menu was extremely limited and lacked any type of Variety. Unlike their lunch and dinner menus which are superior.
Breakfast is not their forte

My husband and I visited Sears this past Saturday evening. There was a bit of a wait which was to be expected, we got seated quicker than anticipated though. Got a perfect corner seat on the back porch.

Pros: Coconut Crab Soup was delicious, would definitely recommend.
Softshell Crab and Oyster Combo was solid, plantains were really good - the salt/lime seasoning went well with the rest of the meal.
Yellowfin Tuna was what I expected, ended up dipping it in the Island dressing to spice it up. Cornbread was an unexpected delight.
The key lime pie tasted homemade and was yummy.

Cons: The whole dinner felt very rushed to us. Requested the soup as an appetizer, it came after the main course. The table next to us got their entrees just a couple minutes after their salad. Waitress inquired about dessert before we were even finished with our meal. She brought out our check before we were served dessert.
Fried green tomatoes were lackluster.
Was still a bit hungry after we left.
Wish they had more than just key lime pie for dessert.
