My guests and I were very satisfied! The meal was great, but a little pricey! Will be back in the future as I live in Galveston and have a dancing school just down the street!

The food wasn’t nothing to write about. Golden Corral buffet is just as good. I will say that the shrimp bite was very good and dessert was really good but that’s it.
Supposedly the restaurant was booked up until 9:30 pm but when we arrived for our 9:30 reservation there were plenty of open tables. There were only 4 other couples there.

We went during restaurant week when they have items not normally on their menu. The food was excellent and served at a reasonable pace. There was a conference going on in the hotel, so it was a little noisier and busier than usual, but still enjoyable. We got a table next to the window, and once the fog cleared up the view was amazing. Definitely will be back; at the very least for the chocolate cake.

We began our evening with a cocktail in the lounge. The view and the ambiance were just as we had hoped We went to the dining room specifically for the Restaurant Weeks menu. My husband and I began with the ravioli and the lentil soup. Both were excellent. The presentation of the flounder was photo-worthy, and the taste was absolutely delicious. The honey nut tart was perfect; the ricotta tart was unmemorable. We had a wonderful experience at Shearns.

The view near sunset is one of the reasons to go. Enjoy a cocktail in the lounge to help set the mood as the sun goes down.

Selected from the restaurant week menu. There was no skimping on portions or presentation. Well done.

A three course meal with the lentil soup and braised short ribs, san the ribs, was delicious and savory. The dessert selected, not so much. The ricotta cherry tart was a disappointment. Not fresh and no taste layers. The crust soggy. Decided after two bites not to let it detract from the wonderful appetizer and entree. However, the one star knock was the result.

The service was friendly and smooth. Will be going back. Have to give the tart a second chance, after all.

We absolutely Love the Food and most of all, the Service we receive at Shearns. Every single one of the staff is top notch, and we go here frequently. All of the food is Fabulous, from the Steaks & Lobster to Shrimp and Chicken dishes, you just can't go wrong here. It's fit for any occasion, but especially Birthday's and Anniversary's, the view is out of this world!!

It's literally fit for a King, an evening that you won't forget!!

Food was good. Service was average. It was our anniversary and this was shared both through our reservation and on a phone call the day before. No acknowledgement of our anniversary at all.

Had to wait to be seated and everything was just ok. Pricey for average.

Classic and classy! Superb touches with the amuse-bouche and the peach sorbet intermezzo. Presentation was impressive. All of the food was excellent with the exception of the vegetable casserole that came with the lamb chops. But the penultimate was the espresso. Perfecto!

Good food but service was mediocre. Had to ask for bread (even though butter was served immediately after we sat down), sorbet is usually served before the entree. - but “they” forgot, we weren’t told about desserts (there was a special). Disappointing.
