My wife and I ate here for the first time recently and we both ordered the filet. It was one of the best steaks we've ever eaten. Also, the service was impeccable. Our waiter, Oscar, was extremely attentive and friendly without being overly imposing. Excellent restaurant -- I highly recommend it.
We were trying to have a night at dinner and all we could hear was thumping party music and shouting from the party next door. The ambiance was awful. Then each wine we tried to order from their wine list was unavailable. Why give us the list? The staff was extremely kind and the chef did a great job on the food, but those were overshadowed by the ambiance. I hope that was an anomaly or no one will want to return.
The most tender lobster meat I have ever eaten. The filet Mignon was absolutely amazing. The service and the food was fantastic and the atmosphere was perfect for our date night. The view was awesome!!
Great food and service. Waiter was helpful in answering questions about the menu. Everything was cooked as expected and excellent ambience.
Best filet mignon I have ever eaten-so tender and flavorful! White chocolate cheesecake was also delicious!
Nice ambiance, clean establishment, wonderful decoration/aesthetics of the room, excellent view, reasonable service, good food, friendly staff.
Host was at first rude with dress code letting someone in after us with same type of jeans but came back and apologized and wanted us to know they talked with manager to and ended up having a better view of moody gardens and great service. Audrey was amazing and our service was exceptional. Thank you Audrey and bartender for making our evening a great one! We enjoyed ourselves
Excellent meal and service. The noise level was very low and the restaurant was decorated beautifully. A great time was had.
Dinner was lovely. Decor was festive and the food exceptional.
Service was excellent and so was the food
Our server, Oscar, was very good! The food was excellent and served at a steady pace. We did not feel rushed.
We were miserable after we left... the food was so good!!!!! We ate everything!!! Love this place, the service is impeccable
Service is always impeccable and the scalloped broiled oysters with crab were outstanding! The view is amazing and so is the food!
We had the steak and lobster special an it could not have been better! Price was also exceptional.
We "discovered" Shears afew months ago, even though we have been in Galveston for years. Since that time we have been there at least 3 times and each experience was wonderful. Great food, service and setting. We will continue to frequent Shearns as often as we can.
Our dinner was delightful. Service was wonderful. Thank you!
Wonderful dinning experience with superb service.
Sitting by the window and next to the festive Christmas tree added to the warm ambience of the dining room as a perfect backdrop to celebrating my wife's birthday. We weren't rushed as we enjoyed our cocktails and the snapper dishes were delicious. We missed the entertaining piano player in the lounge and we hope he returns after the covid restrictions. Shearns is a favorite of ours.
Great place for celebrations. Great food and service
I am always bragging on Shearn's and have had numerous really nice evenings in the past. Not this time! There were kids running around the lounge and making noise and screaming occasionally. Yes, I was at Shearn's.
The lounge was noisy and had a couple of tables with 4 to 5 kids which just totally ruined the atmosphere. The dress code is apparently not being enforced as we saw all manner of casual dress.
The restaurant was just OK. The food has gone downhill since we were last at Shearn's. This is no longer our go-to restaurant for special occasions.
We love to have dinner here, about 90% as good as normal this time, I'm sure covid has hit them hard.
My wife and I have been there twice now. The first visit was so impressive we decided to revisit for our 5th anniversary. The second visit was even better. The service is great. Quiet and intimate. The food is absolutely amazing. The special I had of the grouper was the best fish I’ve ever had. For us, this is a special occasion kind of place. I don’t spend that kind of money on a dinner often, but I will do it again for the experience we had. Thank you Shearns for a great dinner!
Our reservations were Sat 11/14 @ 6pm. We were not greeted by our waiter until 10 minutes after six. We had to get up & ask someone for a wine list. Two other tables seated after us received their entrees before us. Waiter apologized for food delay. We used to go to Shearn’s year after year when we visited our beach house. We will not return. We went to Rudy’s & Poco’s the next night & received exceptional service. You cannot offer poor service & dry fish for the prices you are charging!
Wonderful evening! Double birthday celebration. Samantha
was terrific server. Very engaging! Food was superb and towering piece of chocolate cake was perfect ending. Manager Emmett Rodriquez came by to offer his congratulations. Shearn’s offers elegant dining in a beautiful setting at an attractive price. My favorite restaurant for fine dining on Galveston Island.
The meal was great. I was truly blown away by the crab cake I had. It was actual crab meat with very little bread. I was sold by the taste so I looked forward to getting my main course which was great as well.
The only disappointment was for the dish my husband always order----shrimp on rice. That item has been discontinued. The chef tried to compensate with another shrimp dish but my husband didn't like it as much as the first dish.
the perfect place to share a romantic dinner with my wife of 21 years....perfect
Ask for Michael for your waiter, he is the best. Very friendly staff and hilarious bartender.
It was our anniversary. Place was amazing! Service was great, waiter was on point. Atmosphere was romantic. Food was spectacular. I highly recommend this restaurant for date nights or special occasions. This place is a gem. Will definitely return.
I had ordered the steak and lobster. The steak was amazing and the lobster was tough and did not taste very well. I had also ordered a salad and did not like it at all after one bite and told the waiter and he took it away saying he would take care of it but I was still charged $10.00 for something I felt was not pleasing and had not eaten and told the waiter. I was disappointed in the quality of the food for the price and will probably not dine there again.
The Best view in any restaurant, that you've ever been in.
The Food is Fabulous, & the Service is out of this World!!
You can't go wrong here, they always make our evenings
Dinner was not bad, but service was painfully slow.
When we arrived, we were told that there was a dress code that we were not aware of, so they seated us in a separate room. We were dressed nicely, but no jacket I guess was the issue. Would have been nice to know ahead of time - nothing on yelp or when we called. Food was fine but not a five star fine dining rating. We were looking forward to fresh seafood and there was not much selection. Prices were good.
This is a top restaurant in our region. The prices are comparable to the local seafood restaurants, but the food is exquisite! The service top notch, setting gorgeous! Overlooking the pyramids of Moody Gardens, the bayou with the lights in the background is mesmerizing. Emmett, the manager, oversees each diner, Josh, our server, paid attention to each detail, explained each dish, was on top of everything. Shearn's is at the top of my list in Galveston and the region!
Our waiter, Oscar, was absolutely outstanding! The food was over the top delicious! The experience here was one of the highlights of our anniversary!🥰🥰
A fine dining experience with excellent food, great service, and a good value.
We went to Shearns to celebrate my birthday. We had the special and our filet mignons were cooked perfectly and were extremely flavorful. The lobster tails were also very good. The service and atmosphere were awesome.
It was a nice, quiet dinner to spend on our anniversary. I would recommend!
Excellent service! Booked for my 50th Birthday party with 7 people total!
They treated us like royalty! Excellent service great food!
The service is excellent
The food is wonderful
The view is incredible
