“A Great Evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

I've known about Shearn's for a long time but most hotel restaurants aren't great, so I had never gone. A friend told me last month it was one of the best restaurants he had ever been to, so six of us went the night before New Years. It was EXCELLENT, with great food and great service. We tried a variety of dishes and passed them around. The escargot was large and garlicky with some added flavor that was great. The bisque had a lot of lobster, Two of us split a goat cheese salad, and it was plenty, with a great dressing. The entrees were also very good. The steaks were large and charcoaled, and the fish was perfect. I gambled on a vegetarian dish called Caponata and Polenta, and it was the hit of the evening. For dessert, we had chocolate souflles with a unique ice cream and grand marnier sauce. When we commented on it, the waiter brought a large gravy boat full of it, so we could have a small glass of it. It was like a thick grand marnier milk shake. The room is classy, on the ninth floor of the hotel. I expected a great view of the Moody Gardens pyramids, but they are on the bar side. The restaurant view was okay, but not what I expected. The only window tables for four-seaters, so we were tucked into a corner. The windows may have been better, but we didn't care. We had a great time and, with wine and drinks, the total bill was only about $300 - for six of us!

“Beautiful View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

I was part of a large private party so the menu was preset. The filet was amazing. Very tender and flavorful. A little disappointed with the creme brule. Tasted a little (ok a lot) like vanilla pudding.
