I've been to the fine dining restaurant (which is wonderful), but I prefer the piano bar, which serves nearly the same menu and has live music. Plus is has a wonderful view of the Moody Garden's and it's lights.

We didn't quite realise what we were walking into when we came here for dinner. We were probably a little underdressed (mostly because we had spent the day in Moody Gardens). The food and service though were impressive, and it was a great day and...More

On the top floor of the Moody gardens hotel. Beautiful scenery, awesome service and great food. I always feel like a queen here. The best lamb chops, Colorado lamb chops, better than New Zealand chops.

Shearn's is the restaurant where we should have gone for top quality beef steaks and outstanding service. We should have known better than to have eaten and Fertitta's over-priced and crappy "THE STEAKHOUSE" at his San Luis Resorts. Lesson learned and remembered.
