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.

“I WILL NOT EAT HERE AGAIN!”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

The food was wonderful, but the wait staff, and the non-service that we received will cause us never to return. It seems that the people who were dressed better (although we dressed nicely) were given superior service while we were overlooked. We had to ask for a refill of water 3 different times until someone came to refill our glasses. Our dirty dishes sat in front of us for at least 10 minutes until someone removed them. This is a top rated restaurant (with prices to match) which did not fulfill their obligation.

“A Longtime Galveston Favorite”
Reviewed August 5, 2011

Birthday? Shearns. Anniversary? Shearns. Friday? Shearns. This is my favorite restaurant on the island. The food is impeccable and the service is outstanding. It's our "special occasion" restaurant EVERY TIME.

“Special Occasion Restaurant”
Reviewed June 23, 2011

We enjoyed an early dinner at Shearn's. Everything was very good & I highly recommend going. The view is very nice & after dark the lights are very romantic. This is an upscale restaurant so I don't suggest it for small children
The only downside of our visit, was that a larger group came in & we were then put on the back burner for service.
