Searsucker was a great choice for a girls lunch. We could talk, laugh and actually hear our conversation! The food was awesome and the service was great. They did not rush us to leave and kept refilling our water and ice teas! Definitely would recommend for a special luncheon!
The food was delicious. The service was excellent. The price was too high for the small portion size.
food was good, not very crowded, no life, but nice place to do business , very quiet and good service.
I always enjoy coming to Searsucker. Service is outstanding and the food is great. My only problem is that everytime I come, a favorite is off the menu again! Please bring back tge biscuits, cinnamon roll, and the shrimp avocado toast....PLEASE!!!
We asked for bread and had to pay $5 for 2 slices. We asked to have dressing on the side & were told the order was in and no changes could be made. This used to be a very fine, hospitable dining place and something has sadly changed.
The hostess was kind and put our party on the koi pond table. Excellent location.
The servers were knowledgable and friendly.
We visited Searsucker for a team dinner. The table we were seated at was perfect as it was in between 2 glass walls which allowed us to talk with one another without lots of background noise and gave the group a bit of privacy. The beer selections where amazing and the team enjoyed trying different beers and rating them. The wait staff is very knowledgeable and attentive. Most everyone in group ordered the diver scallops which were cooked to perfection. Several team members had the cookies and coffee for desert which comes with 3 cookies, which is good for sharing. We'll come back next time, we promise.
Amazing food. Incredible staff. You can tell that the Chef puts so much passion into his food and it truly shows. Delicious and seasonally centered dishes make for the best dinner I've ever had. I will gladly go back soon.
Every time I go there they seat me at a lousy table when there are other tables available and I have to be asked that they move me. The second table they moved me to wasn’t that great either but at least I got they best server they have. He was especially nice and very warm and friendly.
Great food, service, and decor! Great for big groups, too.
I would not recommend for brunch. Food was not very good and was extremely overpriced. I expected much better from a Brian Malarky restaurant.
Service was not great either. If you have high end prices, your food and service should match.
Not bad. But not amazing. Food was good, but not for the price.
I had hoped for higher quality considering price. But it was “fine”. Would go back- nothing wrong with it but mediocre.
Food quantity and taste was not as great for $75/person.Service was not so great and had to wait longer for drinks and bread which did not require preparation time.
This was an over-priced assault capitalizing on Valentine's day. The food was mediocre and it was quite the automatized experience. I consider myself a reasonable restaurant patron, and have to say that my wife and I enjoyed many meals better than this evenings at less than 1/2 to 1/3 the cost. Perhaps we should have expected this on Valentine's Day, but we won't be coming back to Searsucker. I felt like the "sucker" tonight.
There was a special Valentine’s Day menu. They forgot to give us the Amuse Bouche, the poached. Lobster was in such small portion that I finished it in 4 bites. Our daughter joined us for dinner and at first they said she hard to order from the $75 valentines menu until I insisted she be able to order from the kids menu.
The food was well prepared and the service excellent. But it was Valentines Day and a bit pricey.
Asked the team for help with surprising my SO on her birthday. They went above and beyond anything I could have hoped. I’m incredibly grateful for the effort and couldn’t recommend this place more! Thank you again!
Food portion in relation to cost was not equal for family dining. All ended up grabbing additional dinner elsewhere on the way home.
One guest waited for her dish 20 minutes after the other guests received theirs, making for an awkward situation.
Our server removed plates prior to guest finishing their dinner.
All in all, it wasn’t the same as my first experience there. My first experience 2 years ago was quite pleasant.
We went to the restaurant for a business meeting early in the day and the restaurant was empty when we started but filled quickly.
Theservers were good and attentive, but could be better trained, ie a bit awkward, sometimes had to aks again for things etc
The food was good and imaginative but there were items that took away from the overall experience: My Nicoise salad had an excellent composition with the pickled greens and the soft egg, but the raw fish was cut too thick and in an artless manner, as an example.
I plan to try again at night, but would recommend for a business meal
Staff was awesome, attentive, and fun. Food was from restaurant week menu and not so great.
It was restaurant week so we expected something special but the food was quite bland. Disappointing.
Chicken wings the best ever.
Octopus not good, it was bland and chewy.
My wife and I ate dinner at Searsucker during Restaurant Week. The arugula salad I had was excellent. I asked if it was on the regular dinner menu, and we were told it was not. For some strange reason, it’s apparently only on the lunch menu - very disappointing.
We used to be regulars at this restaurant. But, the chef apparently does not listen to the patrons’ requests for menu offerings. We asked repeatedly why the biscuits that were previously offered had been discontinued. We were told that the chef decided to make the change. The biscuits were a real treat, and we sorely miss them!
Service has also been very spotty from night to night. Our service tonight was good. But, my wife’s pasta came cold, and we had to wait 5 to 10 minutes for that to be reheated. Considering what the meal cost us (ie, about $160, including tip), we expect better!
My wife and I both ordered the salmon. Our dishes arrived at different times, and the vegetables were not what our server described. The salmon was just OK - nothing special, especially for the money. Overall, it wasn't a bad experience, but was rather underwhelming considering the cost.
Went for Restaurant Week. As usual, the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. The food tasty, fresh, and well prepared.
Tried for the first time. Thanks to the restaurant week. Good menu and delicious food. Felt so open and spacious. Pleasant servers.
The quality of the food and the plating didn't warrant the price. Food was crowded in deep bowls. Fried seafood appetizer was so crowded in the container that it was all stuck together. The same was true for the pappardelle with short rib ragu which was piled so high in the tiny deep bowl it was served in, that the pasta was stuck together and hard to eat. The waiters were very attentive however, and the management came by prior to the food being served, to make sure we had our drink order taken.
The waitress was great!!! And didn’t rush my friends while we were taking forever at lunch!
food and service were great, but it was so loud I could not hear the person next to me and found myself leaning in for conversation.
Seems like they had some changes in management so there was a mix up in the order and then they couldn’t accept Discover card. Otherwise the service and food was just as good as always.
Our food was not prepared correctly and took forever.
Love the food at Searsucker! One of our favorite spots.
Just OK food. Not a good value. Service was wonderful. Noise level was ridiculous.
Food was terrible, service slow, restaurant was freezing cold. The restaurant's quality has declined significantly over the last couple of years. I will not return.
The kitchen twice messed up our order for a chopped salad with no croutons. Twice. Staff was very nice and attentive and did what they could.
Entrees took over 1 hour to be served and 2 of our 6 people received cold food. It was a full dining room but not overly slammed; not up to usual standards.
