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. I only had a little taste but it was amazing. Our meals consisted of ribeye, filet migon, lobster tail and that chaiturebriane Out... More

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

We have been here a few times. Only in the bar area for drinks, appetizers, ambiance. All really great. Can't rate dinners or anything else. Went there for the holidays to have drinks and see the lights from this scenic vantage point. A must see in Galveston.

Thanks to Frommer's for the excellent tip to Oscar's. Just a short jaunt from our B&B and we arrived at this lovely little restaurant. There was a printed menu as well as a chalkboard with specials for the day. We decided to order the 2 course for 15 euros, a true bargain for an outstanding meal. The soup of the... More

We enjoy getting to Galveston before sunset and enjoying the view from Shearn's. The food is always great. Their steaks are wonderful and the sea food even better. I am really particular about how vegetables are cooked; theirs are never mushy or so hard they fly off the plate when cut. Service is excellent. Oh, have a drink in the... More

The restaurant has a very intimate with a luxury chic atmosphere. Personnel is always very professional. They have a dress code, so if you came in flip flops and shorts, you will have to turn around and go get dressed properly. Which I think is a great taste for a restaurant like this. The best thing about Shearns is their... More
