Shearn's is a nice fine dining restaurant that performs poorly. The atmosphere of the restaurant was good and the service was attentive. However, the quality of the food was sub-standard and the performance of the kitchen was poor.

Took my wife on a Saturday night. We had reservations and we were a little early. They accommodated us immediately. Wife ordered a wine and I had a beer. The waiter was not familiar with their beer selection. I had a lobster bisque for my appetizer. As lobster bisque goes, it was thin and void of lobster. Main course, wife... More

After all the years visiting Galveston my wife and I never thought of going to Moody Gardens Hotel for cocktails. Read an article about the restaurant and the lounge located on the hotel's ninth floor with great views. We went and had great martinis, sitting in luxurious comfortable seats taking in a great view of bay area and the various... More

The view of Galveston from this restaurant is fantastic. I'd love to return just to have a nice quiet dinner. We ate a buffet lunch that was quite a spread. The salad was seasoned cucumbers and tomatoes - totally yummy! Pasta and chicken and some other things but the big surprise was the gooey chocolate dessert!!!

During our May stay in Galveston, we dined at Shearn's. Prior to dinner we enjoyed cocktails and watched the sunset in the bar area. The restaurant is elegantly appointed and offers romantic ambiance and were seated at a window table. The view was spectacular at dusk/dark where diners could enjoy the lights of the city. The staff was excellent and... More

My wife and I always start with a cocktail in the lounge overlooking the property. The restaurant is at the top of Moody Gardens Hotel. Its a beautiful view of the water park and the Galveston Bay. The food is some of the best on the Island. You have to try the Shrimp Dijon. I also usually get lamb chops... More

We had read the dress code and were both dressed accordingly. We started with escargot which was wonderful---the perfect place to introduce her to escargot---she loved it. Next we had cups of soup. She enjoyed her shrimp gumbo that looked a little heavy on the okra chunks for me. I had Shearn's signature lobster bisque which was divine. She had... More
