“Fabulous dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Shearn's is on the 9th floor of the hotel and offers a nice view of the bay and waterpark. The food was very good and the atmosphere was extremely relaxing after a busy day at the Pyramids.

“Best restaurant in Galveston!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

We were looking for a good seafood restaurant with a view, who prepared their seafood in ways other than fried. We found it! Sitting by the window on the 9th floor, looking out at the water. We had very fresh shrimp cocktails, fabulous lobster bisque, a warm goat cheese salad and Shrimp Dejonge. Michael, our waiter, wasattentive. This really was our best Galveston meal.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

The food was excellent. The service was good. We were staying in the hotel and were a little concerned about wasting a night out on hotel food. No disappointments. The only recommendation would be for the place to be given a facelift. It seems all of Galveston is waiting for the next storm. The attitude being why bother with a new look as it will soon be blown away. Just spruce it up a bit and you would differently get 5 stars.

“WOW to Everything”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Not your typical hotel restaurant. Excellent food, service, and atmosphere. The restaurant is located on the top floor of the hotel and has a fabulous view overlooking the island. Beautiful at night when the lights come on. Had the red snapper and it was cooked perfectly and "melt in your mouth" delicious.My friend had a steak and it, too, was cooked just as she ordered it. Very adequate wine selection and substantial, well-made cocktails.We got there early with no reservation and got seated without a problem even though it was a Saturday night. The place began to fill up as we left. This is a "do not miss" place to eat!
