The food and service was outstanding right down to the champagne sorbet. Great menu selections including a crab meat cocktail which is hard to find. No matter the occasion this Resturant will make an evening to remember

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!

Christmas dining. Love all the lights and trees! The environment is festive for the season. I was born on the Island and remember when this property was wetlands. I can see my childhood home from Shearns.

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.

This was our first time to visit Shearns. I had heard good things about it and the restaurant did not disappoint. Good service, good food, and the bar had a piano player (on a Saturday night). We will definitely be returning in the future.

While staying at Moody Gardens, we made reservations for our anniversary dinner at Shearn’s. Our table location was quiet with a wonderful view and the service was friendly and efficient. Our cocktails were spot on, and we enjoyed appetizers, shrimp and crab cocktails, along with delicious salads before our entrees. I had sautéd jumbo shrimp and my husband had an 8 Oz. Petite Filet that he cut with a fork. A very thoughtful gesture, our waiter brought us a delicious dessert that said Happy Anniversary. We highly recommend Shearn’s.

I have always had a great experience at Shearns. Franco is the best, welcomes guest immediately and holds a conversation while escorting us to the lounge area before dinner. The bartender (lady) is the best.
The food is excellent as always.

There was group of four of us for a birthday celebration. The food was wonderful. One of the group had lamb chops that was cooked to perfection. There was two fish entrees and one chicken entree that were also excellent. It is obvious this restaurant has a well trained wait staff. Our waiter was Joshua and he came back to check on us several time during our meal without being intrusive. After our appetizers of creamy lobster bisque (served with a touch of brandy) YUM!! and fork tender pork belly, a small dish of sorbet was server to cleanse the palette. We would definitely go back. Great dining experience.

Have always enjoyed the food, but was reminded about the poor service. I hadn’t eaten there in about a year, but as the dinner dragged on, I recalled my previous visit....great food, poor service. The restaurant was about 25% occupied on a Friday night, so it wasn’t that they were too busy. Lack of attention gave us a sore neck as we had to keep looking around for a server when we needed something. Hope they survive...
