Searsucker embodies the social dining experience by encouraging guests to come early and stay late.

Inspired by the simplicity, relaxed and feel-good vibe of the seersucker fabric, Chef Brian Malarkey created a space that invites patrons to relax and enjoy. The airy design features a glass enclosed kitchen, a lounge space with comfortable seating and a lively bar area. Patrons can watch the action, chat without boundaries and feel as if they’re at a friend’s dinner party rather than a restaurant.

Chef Brian Malarkey’s menus are both serious and fun, with creative twists on New American Classics. Dishes range from shared plates and small bites ideal for the whole table, to farm and ocean dishes that you’ll want to keep all to yourself.

Open for Dinner, Weekend Brunch and Happy Hour.

Everything was so delicious - food and drink. Our group of 6 ordered several jars, small plates and entrees and shared. Plenty of food and so much more fun to share! We had the beets & burrata jar, the pimento queso, Mac n cheese, Brussel sprouts, Hanger Steak, Swordfish and Diver Scallops. Wilson, the manager, gave us all free strawberry jalapeño infused tequila shots to celebrate our friend'a birthday. So nice! Overall fantastic experience and Kristen the hostess was wonderful as well!

Food was decent with the exception of the cheese plate which was a complete joke for $18... 2 pieces of bread and 4 small slices of cheese... Overall it was a fine place, but I would not go out of my way to go back.

I’m leaving this review in a bit of a conflict. While as a whole my experience with Searsucker wasn’t terrible, I felt that for the prices I paying the level of service we received was terrible. After being sat we waiting close to 10 min for someone to come to our table, which never happened. I had to actually get up and go ask the hostess to send a server to our table. We then had a revolving door of not great service. We ordered a bottle of wine just in case we had to wait again. We chose tapas style and ordered all of our food at once. Our food ,which was pretty delicious, came out in a very strange order considering what we got. After brussel sprouts they brought our short rib and potatoes, then the duck fat fries and then the cheese board we ordered. It felt as if they brought us our entree before our appetizers. Maybe this was on purpose and I just thought it was a bit strange, I’m not really sure. Either way the food did come out timely and was delish. All the while we saw our actual waiter very intermittently and it felt as though he had no clue what he was doing. It was not super busy that night so being in the weeds didn’t fly. We did eventually get our check and all was good in the world. That being said, I would for sure go back and give it another try, the food was good and the ambiance was great. Let’s hope they get their staff together a bit better.

My wife and I came here to celebrate our first anniversary. The food was fantastic. The service was top notch. And the place has a great vibe. Cannot recommend highly enough.

I held a business dinner here for 9 people. It was great. The service was impeccable and the food was great. Everything was very well prepared. The biscuits with honey and butter were a huge hit with the group!

The restaurant was relatively empty on a Wednesday night. Had it been any busier this review would probably look very different. It is a noisy venue because of the floors, high ceiling, etc so sitting in the same spot on a busy night would have made it very difficult to hear anything as we were sitting in an area that would have a lot of people walking by and talking around us on a busy night. Keep that in mind for scheduling.

Overall, a great experience and not too expensive. We spent $380 prior to tip for at 8 appetizers and meals for everyone.

Went there for brunch on New Year's Day. The music was way too loud. The noise level would make sense if we were there for dinner, but for brunch it was just obnoxious. We struggled to hear each other over the music. We asked for the sound to be turned down but it never was.

Would not recommend. HORRIBLE service. I struggle to think of a time I've had to ask for water or silverware so many times, cleared my own plates, waited so long for everyone to be served, etc. Absolute waste of money. Regret going here.
