Seafood at Sears is consistently good, not great. Views of the water are beautiful. Restaurant gets busy and it is difficult to get any service after your food originally comes to the table. Sears does not take reservations.

Overpriced, long wait, servers think they're doing you a favor. Tables not that clean, and it's rather upchuck to watch kids pull dead fish outta the brine while you're eating.

Some times the experience doesn’t match the expectations! The meal here last night was one of those times. Starters of crab fritters were tasty but enormous. Sharing one order and we couldn’t finish them. We both ordered fish for our entrees. In my case, seared...More

Stopped by for an early Sunday supper. We were seated quickly and handed off to the server quickly. Service was fast, friendly, and frequent. The menu is fairly standard, heavily seafood oriented. If you don't like seafood, you're probably in the wrong place, as your...More

They don't take reservations, if there Is a wait, they will put you on a wait list and call your party when your table is ready. They have rocking chairs which look out on the water that you can wait in. They also have a bar... More
