Sears Landing

Sears Landing, shrimp Po Boy

So many people said we needed to not only check out Sears Landing, but specifically order their famous seafood rolls, which are tortillas rolled around shrimp and fish and then deep fried. It’s quite delicious! I also enjoyed trying their shrimp po’boy (pictured above) and their crab cake sandwiches!

Maine Lobstah Shack

Our favorite meal from the entire weekend was Maine Lobstah Shack, they opened in July 2022 and in just over a year’s time, have garnered so much attention and love. We got the Maine Lobstah Roll with butter on the side and it is now my favorite lobster roll in North Carolina by far! This should be at the top of your list when you visit Topsail. We wished we made time to go again before our weekend ended.

Another highly recommended spot was Shaka Tacos. They had amazing shrimp and fish tacos and I liked that their queso dip had a nice kick to it.

New York Corner Deli

Our last stop on the way out of town was New York Corner Deli. Check out that breakfast sandwich! I ordered a side of hashbrowns and slid one into the sandwich. Yes, you can steal that breakfast sandwich hack for yourself.

Other Places To Check Out

Quarter Moon Books Music Wine – This little coffee shop, book store, live music venue, and wine shop was a great spot to sit and relax.

Trailer Bar – Trailer Bar is a single-wide trailer that’s been converted into a fun bar where locals hang out and where you can see live music. It’s a fun spot to people watch!
