    I had the ribeye steak with a mixture of crab meat and mushrooms on top. The steak was a failure due to no sear/crust was properly developed. The taste of the ribeye could've been better as well.

    Evening started well, even though no one present to greet at the host/hosted stand. However, after making ourselves known to one of the waiters, kindly shown to our table. Having dinner with my 90-year-old mother, belated "private" birthday. Menus presented and drink orders promptly taken. However, this is where the service sadly loses its tempo. Amuse Bouche presented prior to drinks. Entree orders taken…, still no drinks. Originally requested "Chateaubriand for two” but was discouraged by waiter and directed to the filet..., "it's basically the same thing". Really? Last I checked, a chateaubriand is a filet mignon roast. A Filet Mignon is cut/steak. We decided to follow the waiter, maybe knowing something we did not want to know. Next, bread and soup course, followed by entrees. Steak to perfection, compliments to our waiter. Very apparent understaffed. However, for staff on-duty, very polite and courteous. Only reason why 3-4 stars and tipped the full 25%. Even though our waiter committed one of the "seven sins" of table waiting. “Make your customer wait extended period for their check”. Again, staff did their best, but like most services post COVID-19, painfully understaffed. Suggestion to management, save your staff, reduce your bookings!

    Our server, Damian, was great. We felt he attended to our needs while allowing us to catch up and enjoy the evening. Unfortunately my friend’s fish was raw and clearly undercooked but Damian spoke with the chef and they removed the charge. I ordered scallops, which were ok but a little chewy and had a bit too much salt on them. Our appetizers, salads and dessert were on point. I’m not sure what happened with our main courses but it didn’t ruin our evening.

    I had the veal chop, escargot and lobster Mac and Cheese. My wife had the scallops. Everything was excellent. They even gave me a free chocolate cake with candles for my birthday. Oscar was our waiter and he was very attentive, top notch server. I could not have had a better birthday dinner. Also, my wife has a gluten allergy and they were very accommodating and had many offerings to choose from.

    My wife and I were excited about going to this steakhouse. 1st. The ambiance was nice and we were seated promptly. That’s when things got ridiculous. We arrived at 6:30 and didn’t get out of there until 9:30. That was not because we were having a great time and didn’t want to leave,. It was because it to 45 minutes between each course to get out to the table. Not sure if this is all related to the pandemic and they are short staffed. But coming on the place was not packed. I normally don’t leave these kind of reviews but y’all have to do better. You’re not Outback Steakhouse so don’t act like it.

    This was our first time at the restaurant. I had made the reservation to celebrate our anniversary. We were promptly greeted and in fact, were able to be seated early. Having never eaten there before, we needed some time to read over the menu. Our waiter Oscar was very attentive and not overbearing at all and gave us all the time that we needed. My wife ordered the salmon dish and I had the daily special Chilean Seabass. My wife enjoyed her salmon dish immensely however, my CBS was not to my liking as it has a dill and parsley coating on it that I did not enjoy. We shared a huge slice of New York style cheesecake for dessert and it was delicious! My wife had a Mexican coffee with the dessert And she said it was the best she’s ever had. In all, it was a very enjoyable evening, the views of the surrounding grounds are quite nice from the restaurant. We will definitely be back!

    We have always enjoyed dining at Shearns, I believe it has the best views of Galveston. I was a little disappointed that the dress code appeared to have been very relaxed since my last visit,( shorts worn in the dining room and beach wear in the he bar area.

    Experience was very enjoyable. Bar/lounge with live music was a great end to a busy work week which then continued in the dining room with equally good views high above the island and wonderful food and service. Always a pleasure to dine here and also watch the beautiful sunsets.

    We eat here every time we visit Galveston and always ask for Sergio (who always takes good care of us) to be our server. The food, service and island views from the top floor setting are great. The new chef Nico is doing a great job with great tasting well presented dishes. We had Shrimp cocktail huge firm shrimp) and seared scallops (with apple accents) as appetizers, both were amazing. My wife had crab cake starter for her main and I had the sea bass special and we shared the lobster mash potato side. The flavors were amazing and the fish was cooked just right and flaky (not dry or overcooked which can easily happen with fish). Advice: Make sure you have a reservation and ask for a window table seat in Sergio's section.

    From one of the top rated restaurants in the Galveston area I was expecting much better. We ordered the charcuterie board as an app. While it was quite large, it came with pickled veggies, prosciutto and the cheese was not too simplified.... smoked cheddar, pepper jack. Who wants to eat pepper jack with wine? I was expecting some blue or softer type goat cheese. Next we both ordered filet mignon. Good cut of meat and cooked as we asked for but no seasoning. The best part of the meal was the desert. We shared a cheese cake that was very good.
