When you come for the fun, don’t miss out on the food as well.


At the Moody Gardens Hotel, we have the privilege of serving food artfully prepared by Galveston Island’s most celebrated chef, Executive Chef Urs Schmid. Chef Urs and his culinary team use only the finest and freshet ingredients to create our exquisite cuisine. Join us for a memorable meal at Shearn’s Restaurant or The Terrace Restaurant.


Shearn’s Restaurant

If you’re on the hunt for Galveston’s finest dining, then you have found the right place! Shearn’s Restaurant is located on the ninth floor of the Moody Gardens hotel, and its cuisine and service can’t be beat.  Locals come to Shearn’s Restaurant to enjoy the entrées and the upscale ambiance. Come taste Chef Urs signature dishes such as the lobster bisque or shrimp DeJonghe for yourself! Join us for dinner Tuesday through Saturday in dressy casual attire. Sorry, but no jeans, shorts, or tank tops allowed.


During the afternoon and evening, enjoy a cocktail in Shearn’s Lounge. Surrounded by views of the pyramids and Galveston Bay sunsets, it’s the perfect location for an evening drink.


The Terrace Restaurant

Dine in a location designed to bring the outdoors inside. You’ll be surrounded by tropical plants, hand-painted murals, hand-painted stained ceilings, and magnificent butterflies when you enjoy a meal at the Terrace Restaurant. The Terrace Restaurant can be found on the lobby level of the Moody Gardens Hotel and is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Bring your family in to try the best gumbo in Galveston! Kids also eat free at the Terrace Restaurant when you stay in the hotel!
