Seafood was delicious. Shrimp appetizer in marsala sauce wasa favorite. The snapper special was also outstanding. Service was attentive. The kitchen was a little slow due to a large party (it was a Saturday night), but the view was mesmerizing so we didn't mind a little extra wait. One improvement recommendation for management is to refine the coffee program. All servers should know how to make a espresso, latte, cappuccino at this type of establishment.

Shearn's is always fabulous! Lobster bisque, a Perfect Summer Cocktail, fabulous snapper, and profiteroles for dessert. Wonderful dinner, top-notch service.

Good food and a great view. Waiter was attentive, without being obtrusive.
The shrimp masala starter is really good.
The only disappointment was my wife had the surf and turf. The beef was perfect but the lobster was tough.

We have eaten at Shearn"s many times over they years-- enjoying the food and ambience especially for special occasions such as this was our 47 th wedding anniversary. The service after being seated was a little slow but the pace improved. Dessert soufflés are excellent!
Not sure why the question is asked "is this a special occasion" when nothing special happens. Nevertheless it was a excellent dinner.

We have been to Shearns before........certainly the best restaurant in the Galveston area. Food is always wonderful.....special was filet mignon with lobster thermidor .....WOW...this restaurant serves the best meat (not Texas beef) and service was impeccable. Their monthly specials as well as wine nights combined with the best views in town.....Love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Went with my family. They don't have a kids menu, but were accommodating to us. However, that meant three kids shared 2 adult steaks, which was NOT cheap. On the bright side, the meals were fantastic. I can grill a fantastic steak myself and often worry I will spend a bunch on a steak I could outdo on my own for less...that wasn't the case here. I don't know where they get their steaks, but they are better than anything I have access.

What an awesome place for my husband's birthday dinner! The view is lovely. Our cocktails and food were so delicious especially the lobster bisque, the warm spinach salad and our fresh gulf fish entrees. The ambience is the best yet of any restaurant we've been to. Our waiter, Mark, was the best. This wasn't our first visit and it won't be our last!

This restaurant is always wonderful and dependably good. The special for the month of February was a great value. The red snapper was the best we have had and the chocolate cake could have fed a table of four - a great dessert. The wait staff is well trained and very accommodating and helpful. They are always kind and respectful and seem to really like working at Shearns - always a good sign in a restaurant.

This was our first visit. We had been told by the long time locals it is a must do experience. My ribeye was cooked perfectly. I was disappointed when an expensive meat was served with a sauce. The taste was very good; good beef should be able to stand alone with sauce on the side. The Red Snapper had by my husband was very good but he said he has had better. Oh and the view, we missed that due to the fog. The service started slow but finished strong. The noise level was calm and quiet until a boisterous group of 10 arrived trying to speak to the other end of their table. They calmed when dinner arrived. Still a good night

Shearn's offers a quiet atmosphere (rare today) with a great view of Galveston. The food was good though not out of the ordinary in comparison to other top Galveston seafood restaurants. Well - the chocolate cake may have outdone other places! However, the service, the view, and the ambiance are well worth a visit. Would definitely return particularly for a special occasion.

We've been going to Shearn's for many years and they just seem to be in a lull right now. It feels like there's no leadership / team... just kind of empty. The food is always good, but for the price it should be outstanding. I had to leave half my steak this time because it was too tough. Where as it used to be a favorite, I'm sad to report these seem to be tough times for Shearn's....

Myself and four women dined there for a friends birthday and for restaurant week. We were approached with menus, but had to ask for the restaurant week special menu.
We were ignored during the meal-not sure why-maybe because we were women not ordering ala carte? We did drink two bottles of wine, but had to ask for the second one to be opened when all of our glasses were empty. It was so bad that one of my guests asked out waiter, “It seems as though you are having a very bad night.” To which our waiter just smiled and stares at her. I had requested that both bottles of wine be put on my bill, but when the bills came, the wine had been split among all of the checks. There was no mention of my guests birthday.
All in all it could have been a lovely evening, but instead I found myself apologizing for the terrible treatment.

Restaurant Week in Galveston is not to be missed. Our group of 11, who love good food, travel together and live in Galveston, would never miss the opportunity to dine at Shearn's at the Moody Gardens Hotel.

Yes, the views are fabulous, whether day or night, and the service and food is excellent. Never let the thought of a hotel restaurant be a deterrent. Shearn's is a "must" go to place. Classy, elegant but not pretentious. A nice variety to choose from for even the pickiest eater.

We all have dines at some wonderful restaurants worldwide and Shearn's is right there at the top.
