    Excellent service from Joshua. The hostess at the front was lovely and so pleasant. The pork was very tasty but a bit over cooked. The snapper special was truly delicious, well cooked and flaky. We got the chocolate cake and berries and we thoroughly enjoyed it; however, the cake itself was dry and not moist. We enjoy coming to this restaurant and will continue to do so. Also, it would be nice to incorporate an organic wine choice in your offerings.

    Shearns has become our special occasion go to place. In particular, we find the off menu surprises delightful. Antelope, Venison, and terrifically prepared seafood. Our waiter Oscar brought a professional and often humourous attitude to the tabel which I appreciated. This was a birthday dinner and in fabulous fashion we were pleased with the entire dinner from seating to leaving. Shearns accomodated my last minute request for a particular table which provided a beautiful sunset and the lights of the island as the sun set to top off this special moment.

    Our service was well below par and the food arrived barely warm. We would have sent it back but it was already taking way too long to get service of any kind other than trying to sell us something more than what we wanted.

    We reserved here for our anniversary. The hostess was excellent-she was professional and welcoming. The waiter was very attentive and conversational but not too much, the manager came to say hello and welcomed us which was very nice. The food was really good! Not s huge wine list but what they had was a good range of grapes! The only not great thing was the bartender. We came in early to have a cocktail but she seemed too busy and preoccupied to be as welcoming as everyone else we came across. Overall-great place to eat for a special occasion and we will plan on returning.

    We were treated like royalty. It was the second time we celebrated our anniversary here and we felt pampered and appreciated by Joshua and the rest of the staff. The food was excellent and the pace was exactly right for a night of celebrating my wife’s unending patience and love and my appreciation that she said “yes” 39 years ago.

    Shearns is a dining experience not to be missed at Moody Gardens! It is a top notch restaurant sitting atop a beach-themed resort . The vista affords a bird’s eye view of the island looking East toward the Gulf. The setting is elegant, but not stuffy. The service is superb——attentive, timely, and genuine. And the food is fabulous! We make it a “date” every year , and we have never been disappointed. It is a romantic escape away from the sand and sandals, with a “grown-up” menu and an impressive wine list. Specials are exactly that—-not to be missed. Oh! And the raspberry sherbet between courses is sublime …..

    We all loved our food! We had the Shrimp Dejonge for an appetizer. It was small but so worth it! It was so good. We dipped our bread in the sauce too. I had the Shrimp Scampi, my daughter had the 6 oz filet and lobster mashed potatoes, my other daughter had French onion soup and Caesar salad. All of it was so good! We will be back again! Byron and the other wait staff was so nice. The views are great! Sit by the windows. Make reservations. :-)

    I went to Shearn’s for my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary. I had just discovered the restaurant on-line. I requested a table by the windows, and wow, what an incredible view. It’s gorgeous there. The ambiance is equally inviting. The hostess and all the servers were so welcoming and friendly. They made us all feel really special and gave us not just excellent food and drinks, but a wonderful and memorable experience.

    My husband was reprimanded , from the night host, for wearing shorts (Tommy Bahama high end). We had no Idea that there was a dress code. Then this man said that he would “allow” my husband to eat there. He was very stern & grumpy.

    As local residents, we have been to Shearns 6 times. We’ve always had well paced service, never disappointed with the food and the view makes for a great experience. For special occasions, we choose Shearns over other island restaurants. When sunsets take priority over dinner, we like to sit in the bar and simply enjoy drinks and appetizers.

    Escargot was good but crackers were overly salted. Bread dry uninspiring. Lobster bisque heat overpowering to the gentle flavor of lobster. Raspberry gelato cleansing after appetizer was the highlight of the meal (fabulous tablespoon). Shrimp scampi shrimp rubbery overcooked, rib eye gristle definitely not prime beef, but cooked medium rare. Woke with hot flashes during night so I suspect beef grown with hormones. Grilled asparagus 1/2 was charred burnt to point of inedible. Chocolate cake dry over 1/2 was icing. Servers were excellent but did not mention the soufflé that they later discussed with a table near us, not on the menu. Worst $200+ I ever spent for my wife’s birthday. Requested reservations online, next day asked to confirm with credit card so they could charge if I didn’t show, then called the day of, during nap time, to remind me again??
