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

We celebrated our anniversary on Saturday at The Shearn and enjoyed every bit of it from the greeting to the view to the meal. The view is spectacular and the service was spot on. Had the Shrimp DeJong for an app and my husband wanted the recipe (of course didn't get it) the sauce was so awesome he sopped up... More

The service was very poor. Many times we had to ask the busboy to get the attention of the waiter. i asked for a second glass of wine and a second cup of coffer - both of which took about 30 minutes to arrive. We waited for a long time to order and a very long time to get the... More

My wife and I first found Shearn's when we were staying at the Moody Gardens Hotel for an event at Moody Gardens. We didn't want to drive to the Seawall to find a restaurant, so we splurged and went up to the Shear's on the top floor of the hotel. The view is breathtaking; the service outstanding and the menu...

Stayed at the Moody Gardens resort and thought we would try this place since at the hotel. It's on the 9th floor. We had a 30 minute wait so we had a glass of wine in the lounge and got to watch the best sunset from up there while listening to a great singer/piano player. The view is spectacular!! Then... More

A very fine restaurant, with one of the better views of Galveston. Interior is elegant, up-scale. Very classy. Service this night was first-rate: Attentive, without being intrusive. Pleasant, helpful servers who got blind-sided when the kitchen didn't tell them they were out of an item. Food was well-presented, very good, except the filet was cooked without imagination. Problem came, as... More

Went on a date with the bf. He has the filet milone. It was so delicious! Cooked to perfection. I had the new York strip steak. I was so juicy. Only issue was I wanted it well done but it was still pink so I had to send it back. Second time it was still a little pink but I... More

After walking the Mardi Gras parade route with screaming and bead catching our dinner and stay at Moody Gardens was a nice rest from the excitement. Service was great and the food very fresh and flavorable. Walked next door to finish the evening with a drink and soulful live music. Views from the restaurant and our room were wonderful. Laissez...
