When we arrived, we were told that there was a dress code that we were not aware of, so they seated us in a separate room. We were dressed nicely, but no jacket I guess was the issue. Would have been nice to know ahead of time - nothing on yelp or when we called. Food was fine but not a five star fine dining rating. We were looking forward to fresh seafood and there was not much selection. Prices were good.

This is a top restaurant in our region. The prices are comparable to the local seafood restaurants, but the food is exquisite! The service top notch, setting gorgeous! Overlooking the pyramids of Moody Gardens, the bayou with the lights in the background is mesmerizing. Emmett, the manager, oversees each diner, Josh, our server, paid attention to each detail, explained each dish, was on top of everything. Shearn's is at the top of my list in Galveston and the region!

Emmett and Oscar made sure to take very good care of us. I have a special dietary need and they were very accommodating. The atmosphere was lovely (until someone who had too much to drink showed up). The views are incredible. The food was delicious. We forgot our masks because we were so excited about our special night out. There was someone right out front who was very helpful and kind and offered us masks he then took us up to the restaurant personally which I thought was a special touch. You will not be disappointed!

We celebrated our anniversary at Shearns and surprised that the menu had changed and some favorites no longer available. But the Red Snapper with lump crab was very tasty, and the lobster/steak combination was cooked to perfection, so hats off the the chef. Our waiter was Oscar; he and the supporting staff were friendly, timely and efficient. We requested a corner table by the window, and it was quiet and romantic. as well. We ended with coffee and a Grand Marnier souffle, and thank goodness their delicious souffles are still available. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience, helping to make our anniversary very special! We highly recommend Shearns' and it was well worth the 3 hour, 150 mile round trip! So, we spent the night at the Moody Gardens Hotel and we recommend you do the same.

Shearns was a excellent experience. We wanted something special and we found it at this restaurant. The staff from the moment we arrived until we the we're amazing. The bar served well mixed drinks that were quite tasty. The wait staff were very attentive to our needs, and helpful in explaining the menu selections in detail. The entire meal was prepared with great care and was quite delicious. I would recommend dining at sun down the ambiance is beautiful. I would highly recommend this location for a special occasion or just a couple in need of a romantic getaway. We will definitely return soon.

My husband and I decided to try Shearn's to celebrate our 23rd anniversary. Upon being seated the waitstaff asked if we were celebrating anything and we let them know we were there to celebrate our anniversary and she informed us they would celebrating us with a complimentary dessert! We ordered the scallops for our appetizer and they were delicious! I ordered the Tomahawk Pork Chop for my entree and my husband had the New York Strip; the food was really great but we both felt like our proteins were a bit overcooked. This is a minor complaint, but when you are spending a significant amount on a meal you expect it to be just right. Overall it was a wonderful experience and we were stuffed! We would both definitely reccommend this restaurant.

Everything about our experience was wonderful! The hostess made sure we got a window table with a nice view and asked if we were celebrating anything. We were celebrating our anniversary and every person that came by our table made sure to mention it. The waiter recommended great wines that paired with our food choices and the food was incredible! The restaurant was quiet, social distancing and mask guidelines were being followed by everyone at the restaurant, and the meal was really wonderful. Cannot recommend Shearns enough!

We had a lovely evening at Shearn's. Our food was outstanding.


The telephone recording for Shearn's was from May. We weren't sure if the restaurant
was open! I managed to make reservations via Open Table. So, that might need to be changed and updated, or have a person answer the phone.

We were charged $48 for a $38 bottle of wine. When I pointed this out to Samantha, our waitress, she said I know it is wrong but there is nothing I can do about it. She said she pointed the mistake out but was told it would not be changed. She said she was told we used four glasses. This not only did not make sense but we only used two glasses (which has nothing to do with the amount to be billed). We do not know which person intentionally over charged us.

We were very pleased with many areas of our dining experience. Our server, Oscar, was great! The ambiance was excellent. Tables were spaced apart and servers were wearing masks for covid-19 restrictions. The food was excellent as well. The only BIG downside was the 1 HOUR wait for our food once the order was placed. Oscar was very apologetic and comped our wine but the wait was entirely too long.

We were seated in the small dining area next to the lounge overlooking Moody Gardens. This view was fantastic, so our dining experience started great.
great salad, bread , appetizer, and wine...…...due to large volume of diners, I did not receive my steak til way over 1hr. By that time, I was too full on bread.
our waiter comp our wine due to this wait, which was appreciated, but staff can't forget us diners in that area. Otherwise I have always enjoyed having dinner at Shearns.
FYI...while COVID and closing during the week, Moody Gardens should consider switching the dining area to the lounge area to enjoy the sunset and night lights instead of viewing the Water park
