Lovely delicious dinner once again. The owner is there to oversee and she is such a nice friendly woman. Food was perfect! New visitors may want to know that a salad is included with main so you don't really need an appetizer.
Brought a friend from Australia and he was impressed!
Will return.

I had a date night with my wife when we arrived we were told you are early maybe 15 minutes and it will be 5 minutes or so, no problem well the sat us on the bar side NEVER SIT THERE we had to basically yell over the music which we asked to have turned down three times or more and it was continually raised. What I thought that the caliber of the restaurant was, well after tonight it isn't the service was horrendous the food so so and the specials on a sheet of paper what they can't find people to remember what they are, they gave the desert menu and when we went to order oh we don't have that oh and by the way we don't have that either why not at least tell you up front. Needless to say we won't be going back, if you go good luck

Wonderful accommodation for my mother in law using a walker. The aisles were wide enough for her to walk freely. The parking lot is also flat. A nice place for her to be able to have dinner out!
The stage could not have been nicer and made her feel very welcome.
Our dinners were very good, the wine pricey. We did not have the steaks the other choices are nicely done as well.
It is expensive but we will be back as mo. Really had a great time with the wonderful staff. For us and the good food it equals 100%

Steaks were cooked to perfection. The wait staff exceptional; if anything was needed, we never had to ask twice and many hovering around the restaurant to make sure water was always filled, anything else needed and finished dishes removed. This was my first time there but I will be returning.

My first visit with a friend and we were both impressed. Lovely atmosphere, exceptional service and varied menu. We were early-birds so decided to take advantage of their 3 course price fix dinner which was excellent and a great value as well. I recommend highly and we will be visiting Sear House again.

First time at Searhouse and a great experience. Nicely designed bar and dining areas, beautiful onyx bar. Porterhouse for two was excellent, comparable to NY steakhouses. Nicely varied menu if you’re not having steak. Service, unlike some other reviews I’ve read, was exceptional thanks to Jimmy and his young assistants. A little pricey but that seems to be the norm for steakhouses these days. We were there on a Thursday evening.

First time at Sear for us. The building is very nice and open. There are a number of dining rooms and the seating arrangements are open and not crowded.

I had the Bufalo Mozzarella Tomato Salad and my wife had a Caesar Salad. She loved her salad, but my was not good. The mozzarella was hard and not freshly made and the tomatoes had no taste.

We both order steaks, my wife the NY Strip and I had the larger Filet Mignon. The steaks were cooked to perfection and nicely presented.

The service is attentive and knowledgeable.

Food and service were exceptional, but at around 8pm we were jolted out of our seats when the music was changed to AC/DC and Guns and Roses and an unacceptable dining room noise level. Several of the diners complained, but they only lowered the music slightly and did not change the type. Great start, disappointing ending. Our server could not have been more attentive, but he was at a loss as well.

Went for valentines day.. I think the restaurant really was not prepared for the amount of tables that showed up (with reservations). Waiting 45 minutes for our drinks and thats after we asked for them twice. Food took more then 2 hours. Bill was $170 for two people and really was not worth THAT much but thats besides the point. Waiter was apologetic which was nice but really did not fix the 3 hours and 15 mins we spent in the restaurant to get and eat our food. I think the steak was good and cooked exactly as ordered (Medium) but did not really have that gamey/earthy taste I would expect after a 28 day aging process that that claim, 7/10. Lobster bisque was a 2/10. I would not eat here again - even if it wasn't a special occasion...

This was my second or third time at Sear. My boyfriend and I shared a wedge salad, which was great, especially the bacon, however I didn’t care for the dressing. We each ordered a veal chop, which was cooked perfectly and was delicious. I just don’t understand why they smothered it in peppers, some quite spicy. For sides, we ordered onion rings as well as the Brussels sprouts with bacon. Both items were fair. The Brussels sprouts were actually mushy, not at all crisp, which was a huge disappointment. We shared delicious piece of key lime pie for dessert. Our server was busier with a table of women, and it took a full 10 minutes from when he asked if we wanted to see a dessert menu for it to arrive, and actually, it never did as by then my boyfriend was tired of waiting and he knew they have key lime pie.

Have been here several times. Pretty place. Food is very good. Highly recommend the Tuna. Regular on the menu and special was outstanding!
They owner (wife) is just lovely and when I politely complained about a special appetizer, it was immediately taken off bill. Dinner was delish and they even brought us a complimentary dessert!
People are definitely liking the place because it was completely full.
Will return for sure!

Food was excellent. Restaurant needs some updating, seat cushions were so flat and worn out felt like table was too high. They have a fire pit in front of the entrance, when we drove up there was a big cloud of smoke coming from pit, it was difficult to breath and we all stunk with smoke, it was so bad that the inside of the restaurant had strong smoke smell. Most of the waiters were polite and attentive accept for the one older waiter (might be headwaiter) he has an attitude and when i asked for a particular drink he told me they don't have it, without even checking with bartender. As it turns out I went over to the bar and asked for it myself and sure enough they had it.

Came here for my 50th birthday. Overall, experience was positive. However, I ordered the Diver Scallops which were very salty and over cooked. Given the price, I thought the food would have been excellent. However, disappointing. The tuna tartare was excellent. The amount was good enough to be my dinner. My husband was very happy with his seared tuna. I would give the restaurant another try and order the steak. My scallops were disappointing. I should have returned them to the kitchen.

Food was great. Had the oysters, caprese salad, and bacon slices. For entree we had boneless ribeyes, sirlions, and tomahawk for 2. All the steaks were cooked great. For sides we had creamed of spinach, truffle mac and cheese, and garlic broccoli. Dessert we had the lava cake, cream brulee (least favorite), pecan pie, and ice cream. All in all a wonderful dinner. Will definitely come back to try other entrees like their fish and pastas.

Restaurants are always fully booked for holidays, and this past Christmas Eve was no exception. Sear was extremely busy, yet we never suffered because of this; in fact, we had a terrific experience there. The service was top notch, as was the food. The steaks were perfectly done. The side dishes were excellent. Our drinks arrived on time. We weren't rushed. Sear is not an inexpensive venue; so we were again delighted to have a wonderful Christmas Eve family dinner there. Good job, Sear! And thank you for adding so much pleasure to our holiday dining together.

The waiter gave the impression that he didn't want to be there. I wish the busboy was our waiter. He was very attentive and friendly. I only hope our server shared his tip with him because the only reason he received the tip he did was due to the busboy.
