About Searsucker North County/ Del Mar
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, koi pond, a lounge space with comfortable seating and a two lively bar areas. Patrons can watch the action, chat without boundaries and feel as if they’re at a friend’s dinner party rather than a restaurant.
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.

Searsucker North County/ Del Mar Ratings and Reviews
Everything at Sears , food , service , except the 3% tax to the customer for CA raises . This should not be passed onto the customer especially since the new TAX law reduces corp tax from 35 to 20 % this should give your company more than enough money to pay for your employees.
The Cobb salad was inedible. Duck wings were overly spicy it overpowered any flavor. Rest of the food was average. For not a busy night, it was too loud for conversation. Service was not great. It was a disappointment as the last dinner with visiting guests.
I was recommended this restaurant by friends who said it was good. I understand that serving a huge party can be daunting and exhausting. Our server started out decent. Until someone mentioned to split checks. Which completely changed his demeanor and gave us the WORST attitude, wasn’t inviting or friendly. It shouldn’t take 30+ mins to get a cup of milk for a child. His checked out attitude ruined the vibe of the get together. Especially since some of us came from across California and out of state for this gathering. We definitely won’t be back.
We went on a Saturday night with friends and after leaving the restaurant we went out to another restaurant because the portions were so small and our guests were hungry. The only exception was the pork chop which was very good. Other than that dish the portions are tiny and the menu could use changes. On a Saturday evening this restaurant was less than half full whereas other restaurants in the same area were full.
It was the perfect setting for a turning 18 Birthday celebration for our family of 11! Appetizers were delicious and nice variety- wine and main courses were enjoyed by everyone. Wonderful desserts as well. Only hipcup was it took a bit long to finally pay the bill!
We were seated in a area that was directly in the path of a very cold breeze. After mentioning it to the hostess she moved us just a table over. It was still very cold and uncomfortable. I had to wear my jacket during the duration of my stay which was very unpleasant. Waitress was average. Food was Good. It was not worth $140 !!!
I've reviewed Searsucker before, usually as a mixed experience. The food has always been good, but service in the past has often been lackluster (at best). This time though, they had it going on. No delays. Attentive, but not overbearing wait staff. It wasn't crowded, but that had never been a determiner of service in the past. I like this place and keep going back and am glad that the service has improved significantly.
The Resturant is very nice inside as well as the patio seating. The outside is dog friendly which is a plus.
The food was really good. The prices are a bit high. There were 3 of us. For an appetizer, cesar salad, bowl of tomato soup, grilled cheese sandwich, 1 sherbert & 4 mimosas the bill was over $100. I was shocked. Our server was not at all friendly. The male server at the other table was nicer. The salad, soup and grilled cheese took for ever to be served & it wasn’t even that crowded. Since it came so late I asked our server if I could get mine to go (soup & grilled cheese). She seemed very irritated at me for asking and marched away to wrap it up for me to go.
Pretty Resturant but not worth the $$$. I doubt I’d go back..
The ambience was lovely. We sat outside on the patio and the koi pond was a great view. It was romantic with the lighting as well. Unfortunately, one of our meals (fish and chips) was soggy rather than crispy, and our server was not attentive despite the fact the restaurant was not busy. It took ten minutes to get a cocktail. Even the busser said they couldn’t find our server when I asked.
We made a last minute reservation. The place was very slow on the Sunday we dined. Servers were good, friendly and attentive. We found the open doors in 52 degrees a pain in terms of wearing fleece to dine indoors. The food was a bit salty and average. Drinks and wine came quick. Cocktails were good.
Saved my SDRW cheat meal for Searsucker. I had my eyes set on the burger and duck fat fries and am 100% satisfied with my decision. Burger was cooked perfectly with a soft, fresh bun and delicious crispy fries! Staff was super attentive and nice, from hostess to my server John and everyone who kept my water filled and table clean! One of the best services I have ever had. It was somewhat empty on an early Sunday night; wish they could relocate to Encinitas!!
one of my favorite restaurants for good comfort american food! It has a contemporary spin on how they represent their food and cocktails witch is so good for cute Instagram pictures!
Great service, not rushed or overwhelmingly nice.. I love their Jar appetizer options Poke is one of my faves. LOVEE shrimp and grits dish to share and charcuterie is very generous perfect for a group dinner.
my best friends ultimate favorite drink is Peter rabbit its so good for summer! I love their wine list!
After having a wonderful experience at the Vegas restaurant for dinner, I came with high hopes for lunch at the Del Mar location. My friend and I were disappointed. We ordered the soup, salad and half sandwich combo. The tomato soup was so acidic we had to order sides of sour cream to cut it. The salad was a mound of lettuce leaves drenched in dressing. The half hummus veggie sandwich had no flavor. Don't know if I'd come back as this was the healthiest option for lunch.
