My husband and I ate here to celebrate our anniversary and we were not disappointed at all! Food was fantastic. Loved the "shrimp dejonge" and the ribeye was one of the best steaks I've ever had. Staff was great, even brought us a chocolate soufflé with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate on the plate. Will definitely eat here again.

Beautiful views of the Gulf. The service was excellent and the various servers all worked together seamlessly. The steak was wonderful and the drinks were good.

We booked an early reservation, and although the restaurant was empty, they placed us in a corner away from the window. We asked for and the gave us a window seat. After a prolonged wait, we had to ask for the wine list as one was not offered, than after another prolonged wait, our order was taken. After being asked... More

We ordered Petit Filet Mignon with Baked Salmon for our guests and they raved about it. This was the first year for us to order a dual entrée but it was well worth it

Arrived, all dressed up (we were staying in a condo), and the valet gentlemen were wonderful! Were told how to find the restaurant, went to the location, had a drink at the bar before dinner, and then were seated. First impression was that they were "trying" too hard. It IS rather intimidating to be met by all of these guys... More

I told them my issues and they created an amazing crab dish. It was so flavorful and filling. The service is top notch and the tablescapes and decor were beautiful.

Celebrated a recent wedding anniversary dinner at Shearn's. Food was very good and service was great. Lamb was cooked to perfection, and the soufflé was a wonderful compliment to our dinner.

A great dining experience! Service was impeccable; Michael and Damian took great care of us each night. And the chef even came out and greeted every table; not something you see very often anymore. And the food, wow. As has been stated the lobster bisque is making my mouth water as I write about it. The steak and seafood options... More

This was a very typical experience to many fine steakhouses across the country. My filet was cooked to order but with no uniqueness. My wife had the shrimp in a cream sauce but it needed additional seasoning. I will say their lobster bisque is fantastic. The service was very average and the restaurant has an overall stuffiness to it. Save... More
