the food was fine, however, the service was far less than one should have to endure. The 2 younger kids great you upon arrival and ask you to be seated even though most of the tables were empty. Waited for 10 minutes and I followed up behind this other family who also complained. The kids did not know anything. Asked... More

My husband and I had tickets for the Curt Miller Show in early August and decided to grab a bite to eat before hand ...mostly to save us from the popcorn, candy & soda at the show. I originally was only wanting to get some Lobster Bisque (which is out of this world) but our server, Joshua, talked us in... More

The best I have ever had anywhere in the world. I also like the Shrimp Dejong. One of the Chef's creations and can't be beat.

The children ordered corn dogs, one with a side of fries and the other with apple slices then I ordered a cup of lobster bisque... More

There were very few options for dining on Christmas day, and since we were visiting Moody Gardens, we decided to just do the Christmas Buffet at Shearns. I expected a hotel restaurant to be pricey, but when the bill arrived it was almost $200 for 3 adults and 1 child. If the food was amazing I would not have thought... More

Started with stuffed mushrooms, and the entree was again exceptional. The Terrace KNOWS how to do blackened stuffed snapper right. I will get this dish every year. Service was cheerful and appropriate - there... More
