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... read 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

I love to eat at Shearn's. Situated atop the hotel at Moody Gardens, this fine dining establishment really delivers. We like to go into the Piano Bar before dining and watch the sun set. After being seated in the dining room it a great delight to look out over the Island. The view is spectacular all the way to the... More

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.

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
