My wife and I were staying in the Moody Gardens Hotel where the restaurant is located on the 9th floor. We had a wonderful experience. Josh, our waiter, was very attentive and helpful. All of the food was delivered timely and we enjoyed every bite. They were doing a special for that evening's dinner that included a nice beef fillet and some options for lobster. It was priced well and tasted great! We will return for future visits when we are in Galveston.

We were seated in the bar area because we were not aware during the booking that there was a dress code. Not to worry because the bar staff were exceptional in their service and attitude. Truly a pleasure eating there with them serving us. Food was great, steak was deliciously prepared with red wine reduction in the side and wife had the snapper which she thoroughly enjoyed.
Scenic views on top of the hotel on both sides of the island. Highly recommended this restaurant.

It was my first time dining at Shearns. The experience was absolutely amazing. The wait staff was polite, accommodating and excellent. Special shout out to Logan and Michael for going above and beyond. I was there for my birthday and they helped make it a memorable experience. Thank you and I look forward to visiting again!

Always good atmosphere aad friendly and attentive staff. Did not like regular menu meals being called specials for the night just to make them more princely for basically the same meal as the menu entry.
Appreciated the complimentary first drink for our anniversary.

We have been here many times. Without a doubt, this was the worst time. Service was bad - not at all what one would expect at a fine dining restaurant. Food was great. Ambiance was fine. The liquor was horrible. I have been drinking Manhattans for about 60 years The two I had were the worst I have ever had in thousands of restaurant servings. The bartender needs to at least check the instruction book for what goes into one. And to be charged $1.50 each for the ice that goes into "on the rocks" is bizarre, at best.

So we made resv at 530 and we got there on time but our table was not ready so I spent $100 on bubbly, celebrating our 2 college grads (I did not specify on resv that we had a special occasion). Our table was ready almost an hour later. Our waiter and his support were good but we definitely were “out of the loop” and had to finally ask if we could order dinner. All good, have a great day and many thx.

Our server Joshua was AMAZING. My mother felt really special for her Mother's Day celebration. She enjoyed the food and the ambiance. This is one of her favorite restaurants on the island and we are never disappointed. Thanks for such a great experience.

Though we had reservations, we had to wait several minutes while young lady took lengthy reservation over the phone before we could be seated. We were never given a wine list. Never offered ground pepper with our meal. Salmon was a disappointment but snapper topped with crab was very good. Trying numerous restaurants in Galveston at least once!

Shearns was the perfect spot for our friend’s special birthday celebration. We dropped off balloons for the table and they were on a picturesque table by the window which made for the best surprise for the birthday girl! Damien provided excellent service as usual. Thanks Shearns for never disappointing.

Everything was so good!!! I had the Filet Mignon, which was superb, my daughter had the Ribeye Steak and was out of this world, soft and delicious; good wine list and desserts.
Josh was simply amazing, in general, very attentive staff; great ambiance and atmosphere for a nice dinner plus an excellent view.
I definitely recommend this restaurant!

We had a great experience. Amazing sunset views. The food was above average but my husband needed a dairy free option so the only menu item available was the tuna tartare which is an appetizer sized. That was a bit disappointing.

The wait staff was remarkable, attentive & very kind to our family, offering us a free cheesecake for dessert when my young step son accidentally spilled wine on us. We were overall happy & would go back!

They recognized our anniversary with a complementary dessert which was very kind. They also told us they had a beautiful table for us but unfortunately it was on the same side of the hotel as we were staying, which was a very pitiful view of the desolate water park and didn’t showcase the sunset. I was really bummed but we didn’t complain. Food was ridiculously good. Filets, perfectly cooked lobster tail, macaroni and cheese. Delicious! Very special dinner.
