Food and service were quite good. However, the fact that they letting people who looks like they just came from the pool area removed from the ambience of the place. If there’s a dress code, they were not enforcing it. A restaurant such as this should have a minimum dress requirements.

Absolutely perfect! Best view, excellent food and service! If you want personal attention, this is the place. If you want to hear 'YES' to every request, this is the place! We share, we split, we want things maybe different than they're listed on the menu, we are always accommodated! The drinks are perfect also! Very good all around!

Our waiter, Oscar, was very friendly and attentive. In fact, he noticed a nat in my wife’s martini and went and got her a free replacement. The view, food, service and ambience are excellent. In fact, we have reservations there again for this Friday night.

The best part was the service. We were made to feel special and welcomed. Emmett in particular and our waiter were kind and helpful. After a difficult year and half, this celebration of our 45th anniversary fulfilled our wishes.

In some ways, it reminded us of the days of the Galveston Yacht Club, which we enjoyed for many years.

My wife and I were staying in the Moody Gardens Hotel where the restaurant is located on the 9th floor. We had a wonderful experience. Josh, our waiter, was very attentive and helpful. All of the food was delivered timely and we enjoyed every bite. They were doing a special for that evening's dinner that included a nice beef fillet and some options for lobster. It was priced well and tasted great! We will return for future visits when we are in Galveston.

We were seated in the bar area because we were not aware during the booking that there was a dress code. Not to worry because the bar staff were exceptional in their service and attitude. Truly a pleasure eating there with them serving us. Food was great, steak was deliciously prepared with red wine reduction in the side and wife had the snapper which she thoroughly enjoyed.
Scenic views on top of the hotel on both sides of the island. Highly recommended this restaurant.

Always good atmosphere aad friendly and attentive staff. Did not like regular menu meals being called specials for the night just to make them more princely for basically the same meal as the menu entry.
Appreciated the complimentary first drink for our anniversary.

We have been here many times. Without a doubt, this was the worst time. Service was bad - not at all what one would expect at a fine dining restaurant. Food was great. Ambiance was fine. The liquor was horrible. I have been drinking Manhattans for about 60 years The two I had were the worst I have ever had in thousands of restaurant servings. The bartender needs to at least check the instruction book for what goes into one. And to be charged $1.50 each for the ice that goes into "on the rocks" is bizarre, at best.

So we made resv at 530 and we got there on time but our table was not ready so I spent $100 on bubbly, celebrating our 2 college grads (I did not specify on resv that we had a special occasion). Our table was ready almost an hour later. Our waiter and his support were good but we definitely were “out of the loop” and had to finally ask if we could order dinner. All good, have a great day and many thx.

Though we had reservations, we had to wait several minutes while young lady took lengthy reservation over the phone before we could be seated. We were never given a wine list. Never offered ground pepper with our meal. Salmon was a disappointment but snapper topped with crab was very good. Trying numerous restaurants in Galveston at least once!

Shearns was the perfect spot for our friend’s special birthday celebration. We dropped off balloons for the table and they were on a picturesque table by the window which made for the best surprise for the birthday girl! Damien provided excellent service as usual. Thanks Shearns for never disappointing.

Everything was so good!!! I had the Filet Mignon, which was superb, my daughter had the Ribeye Steak and was out of this world, soft and delicious; good wine list and desserts.
Josh was simply amazing, in general, very attentive staff; great ambiance and atmosphere for a nice dinner plus an excellent view.
I definitely recommend this restaurant!
