Very elegant, and the service was attentive. Portions a little small, but the food was quite tasty. The food was equally good (and less than half the price) at the restaurant downstairs.

On the 9th floor of the Moody Gardens Hotel this is a first-class dining experience. As you sip a pre-dinner drink in the bar area, enjoy the expansive view of the Gulf of Mexico and the Moody Gardens amusements below. Then savor a beautifully prepared, delicious meal served elegantly with great attention to the details. My jumbo shrimp with a... More

I had the snapper and lobster bisque. The bisque was excellent. The snapper was good but not exceptional. For the price I expected more. Service was great. Try the cheesecake you won't be sorry.

We had a birthday party dinner for 10 people at this restaurant recently. They arranged a semi-secluded area for our group. Note that they have a dress code and reservations are recommended. Our waiter did an excellent job of taking care of us. Right off the bat they fixed my whiskey sour perfectly, which is easy drink to mess up.... More

Our anniversary dinner at Shern's was magical with the sunset and twinkling lights, the excellent service and the toothsome menu selections. Fresh fish excellently prepared, and a fine bloody mary!

We dined at Shearn's for our 40th wedding anniversary. This was our first visit and it won't be our last. We appreciate a restaurant that provides an upscale experience with a dress code and nice atmosphere. (Footnote: Please don't even think about taking young kids to this place. You will feel uncomfortable and the other patrons will greatly appreciate it!!)... More

We stopped into the Lounge for a glass of wine after visiting the Ice Land display. The lounge is beautifully decorated with comfortable chairs and sofas. The lounge is on the 9th floor and a great place to watch sunset happen over Galveston. It was not busy and service was excellent. A romantic atmosphere with good music.

My wife and I decided to celebrate our 10 years anniversary in Galveston, so we decided to visit Shearn's based on a friend's recommendation. We used Open Table to book a later reservation (8:30). Shearn's is located inside of the Moody Gardens hotel on the 9th floor. The parking lot I believe is across the street. For $6, I'd recommend... More
