Great food and service.

Outstanding steaks and desserts! Very intimate and quiet. The service was perfect. I was very surprised that the restaurant was mostly empty considering how good the food was.

We love Shearn's! If you are anywhere near Galveston, you need to have dinner in one of the best restaurants on the island, with a view that is second to none. When I say tops, I mean tops, seeing as the restaurant is on the 9th floor of the Moody Gardens Hotel. Kelly does a great job managing the busy... More

The photo in the elevator showed 8 little chops but the $44 plate had 4 small/medium sized chops that tasted out of the world which made me even more disappointed when they were all done (no more chops) my appetizer could of supplemented my hunger but that missed the mark too.

Wonderful service, amazing views, delicious food and great wine list. We enjoyed the shrimp specialty dish, pan seared snapper, goat cheese salad and not to be overlooked the bananas foster bread pudding and cheesecake brulee were out of this world

I stayed at Moody Gardens for a couple of nights on business and the first night my colleagues and I decided to just dine upstairs at Shearn's. We were blown away by the quality of the food and the service.

This is one of the greats, with a true chef's kitchen. Plenty of interesting touches on the menu, but keeps plenty of standards to satisfy the less-adventurous gourmand. They do uphold their standards for dress, unlike anyplace else I've been in Galveston. I've seen people turned away for wearing jeans and separately for wearing thong-style sandals (not flip-flops). Do dress... More

I'm always looking for some place different to go so as usual, I pulled up my Trip Advisor to locate a restaurant in Galveston to celebrate our anniversary. I had never heard of Shearn's as it was located on the 9th floor of the Moody Garden's Hotel so it probably caters a lot to hotel guests. I had the Seared... More

My wife and I were in Galveston for a couple of nights and we happened to be in town for our wedding anniversary and Shearn's was where we went for our dinner, based on the excellent Trip Advisor reviews. It was the perfect place for a special dinner. We had a great view of the city from our table and... More

This was our first opportunity to experience the excellence in a first class setting. While we have enjoyed many of Galveston's fine restaurants, I believe Shearn's may very well be the best. The view from the bar at sunset is breathtaking as is the premium liquor that is available. The menu covered all of the bases with something for everyone's... More
