A pleasant experience overall. Service was very good, the room slightly dark but ok. The food was very good and well cooked altough the lobster bisque was a bit salty for our taste. The steack and scallops very good. I give 4 stars as the wine list does not show the vintage which is not very convenient if you want... More

Our experience here was nothing less than fantastic. Our server was very knowledgeable about the perfect wine pairings for each course as well as knowing the perfect after dinner drink. The Steak was divine, but the Lobster Bisque is something i will never forget. When I think of one of the best meals I have ever had, this one is... More

This is one of 4 places to get prime steaks in Galveston. It is on top of the Moody Hotels and offers great views of the bay and city. Steaks are prime and very good. This is probably the fanciest spot in town ut you can still go island casual. Waiters are very good. Great for a special occasion.

My husband and I visited as a joint anniversary/ Valentine's dinner... everything was wonderful; from easy access parking, the manners of the host to waiters to manager, the presentation of food, explanation of options, romantic atmosphere... all were enjoyable. Shearn's is located on the 9th floor of the Moody Gardens Hotel, which must not have been too crowded the evening... More

Located on the top floor of the Moody Gardens Marriott Hotel, this fine dining restaurant offers an excellent fresh seafood menu as well as some very nice steak choices for non-fish people. Service was fantastic from the moment we arrived. We had a window table with excellent view (there are lots of window tables available). The smoked salmon and escargot... More

We often visit this hotel for trade shows and Shearn's had become the location for our annual girls' night out. Reservations are a must. The service is impeccable. The food is wonderful. It is pricey, but worth the splurge. this year i had the crab cakes, jasmine rice and steamed veggies. We had 3 desserts and they were all excellent.... More

First let me say this place is a high dollar restaurant. Plates are $30 or more per person. I was with 4 other people and every plate was amazing. The chaiturebriane (sp) was out of this world.

Here, fancy food names on a menu come to life, not as drab reproductions, but as the real thing. Try the escargot, the filets, the soufflé. No, it is not cheap, but it is wonderfully memorable and a lot less money than it will set you back in Europe. The setting is beautiful and our service was exceptional for a... More
