"I've eaten at this location and the one downtown a few times in the past (a couple years ago), and it's not at all what I remember. Not sure if my standards have increased or the quality of the food has decreased, but it was not good. Tasted like a typical strip mall restaurant (cheesecake factory comes to mind). Short rib was under seasoned, scallops did not taste fresh, and all of our sides came out 10 minutes before the main. They are "sides" not apps, right?"

"Service was great once we were seated, had to wait about ten minutes with a reservation for 2 and it was not that busy, the bar was empty. We were seated outside which was not the best location as it was evening and chilly out. They had the heat lamps, but we all know how those work, burn the top of your head for one person and the other person is still chilly. Went for restaurant week, was not that impressed with the food in general. Glad we did not pay full price for food as I have a feeling we would have been disappointed."

"Our reservation for 8 was at 6:30. All members of the party were on time. Service was very slow (emphasis). We received our check at 9:00. Very disappointed in the service. The food was adequate. Nothing exceptional. Will not return."

"I love Searsucker. The food has been delicious every time I've gone and the service is great. They're very accommodating for plant based vegan diet. The decor is very unique and trendy. One of my go to upscale places in Del Mar area."

"Had a family dinner there last week- the service was not good, long time for drinks & ordering. Food came, no utensils. The waiter waved me off the chicken lollipops and pushed the shrimp & grits. Shrimp and grits were bad, shrimp was tough, grits were sitting in broth, Not creamy at all. Been a long time since I left a tip less than 20%. I have been to the restaurant downtown for some high end dinners and was very pleased but I won't return to the one in Del Mar."

"My husband and I went to Searsucker for restaurant week. The food was great! I recommend the $40 prix fixe with the shrimp and grits, braised short ribs, and browned butter cake. The night would have been perfect except for the weird older couple sitting next to us. Our tables were literally 1 foot apart. No one wants to sit this close to another couple they do not know. The woman was talking so loud as if she wanted us to hear her conversation. When my husband and I started talking, that woman would talk even louder so I couldn't even hear my husband talk. The restaurant was practically empty at that time and they were seated 5 min after us. Seating does a lot. The greeter should do a better job of spreading out the customers. It was very akward."

"Noise levels were so high that it was difficult to have a conversation even with the person right next to you. Definitely not recommended if you want to talk business or have a date night with your spouse (unless you don't want to talk to each other) - at least on a Thursday through Saturday night. We - party of 4 business men - waited about 20 min before the server showed up and when the soup was delivered without a spoon we had to find one ourselves b/c the server was nowhere to be found. Overall the food was tasty and frankly a little on the pricy side - kind of "up there" with its peers in Del Mar."

"We've been to Searsucker for drinks once (which was good) and dinner twice. The first dinner visit was pretty good ... but didn't quite justify the prices. We tried again with some family ... and the most recent dinner visit was flat-out disappointing.
Service can make a difference - and in this case - it made it worse. It took a little too long to get drinks which were nothing fancy; a couple of wines and beers. The hand-off between staff wasn't clear ... so little things (extra napkin, lemon, etc.) took a couple of reminders ... and everything took too long.
Appetizers = generally good. Duck-fat fries are delicious. Squash soup got good reviews.
Dinners = The braised short-rib was fatty and under-flavored. I could get better at a BBQ joint for half the price. Two salads (the Arugula and the Kale) we both underwhelming. Both went back half eaten. One of the two Mary Chicken" dishes was "rare" (not generally a good thing with chicken). One a high note - the mussels were delicious.
So - the most disappointing aspect was that no one on the wait staff even noticed 3 entrees barely eaten ... and took forever to get a check. The point; they weren't paying any attention.
So, we know the place can put out some good food and it's a fun happy-hour atmosphere ... but, we were disappointed and probably won't go back."
