“A Very Nice Evening...”
Reviewed August 6, 2014 via mobile

Arrived, all dressed up (we were staying in a condo), and the valet gentlemen were wonderful! Were told how to find the restaurant, went to the location, had a drink at the bar before dinner, and then were seated. First impression was that they were "trying" too hard. It IS rather intimidating to be met by all of these guys in tuxedos/ formal wear. But once you relax and decide to enjoy your evening, things get fun! Our server was an Absolute Doll! Answered all of our questions & was very friendly. Not stuffy at all... I even joked with him about needing to Google the place setting... And he just laughed and took the extra stuff away... Said he only knew b/c he worked there... Made me feel very comfortable.

Hubs & I split a salad, then he had lamb, I had veal. Both cooked to perfection, no complaints. And there was a raspberry sorbet, a pallet- cleanser, between courses.

Views were fantastic, wine list very good (yes, we had a bottle)... Service Top-Notch, food excellent, what more can I say?!? Very memorable, will Def go back on a special occasion!

“Seafood and GF-Excellent results”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

I told them my issues and they created an amazing crab dish. It was so flavorful and filling. The service is top notch and the tablescapes and decor were beautiful.

“Great Galveston seafood and steaks”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

Celebrated a recent wedding anniversary dinner at Shearn's. Food was very good and service was great. Lamb was cooked to perfection, and the soufflé was a wonderful compliment to our dinner.

“So Good We Ate Here Twice!”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

A great dining experience! Service was impeccable; Michael and Damian took great care of us each night. And the chef even came out and greeted every table; not something you see very often anymore. And the food, wow. As has been stated the lobster bisque is making my mouth water as I write about it. The steak and seafood options were of nice portion size and cooked to perfection. The desserts were the only thing that might bear slight improvement, but that's trying to find something to be picky about. The service, the food, the view, I don't know how you could improve on the overall dinner. Twice!

“Nothing inspiring”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

This was a very typical experience to many fine steakhouses across the country. My filet was cooked to order but with no uniqueness. My wife had the shrimp in a cream sauce but it needed additional seasoning. I will say their lobster bisque is fantastic. The service was very average and the restaurant has an overall stuffiness to it. Save your money for another experience..
