The Shearn’s experience begins the moment you arrive. Step into this restaurant, elegantly ensconced on the ninth floor of Moody Gardens Hotel, Spa and Convention Center, and you immediately understand why it’s considered the premier destination for Galveston diners. First, there’s the unparalleled service as you’re greeted, seated and served. Then the array of delectable fare is truly mouth-watering, including such hors d’ oeuvres as sesame-encrusted ahi tuna, grilled baby Portobello mushrooms and gruyere tart with micro herb salad, among other delicious selections. Meanwhile, with the variety of entrees, from incomparable steaks to daily fresh seafood to vegetarian plates that include grilled vegetables, baked potato gnocchi or Pappardelle pasta, it’s no wonder that Executive Chef Urs Schmid has gained such renown.

And the 2014 Pinnacle Award Goes to…Moody Gardens Hotel!

Galveston Resort Hotel is honored for being a top business meeting destination

Successful Meetings Magazine gives out Pinnacle Awards on an annual basis to hotels, meeting places and conference centers that showcase the very best in service and amenities. The 2014 award winners were recently announced, and the Moody Gardens Hotel, Spa and Convention Center was honored with our fifth Pinnacle Award for providing a high-quality destination for events and meetings. We’re pleased to be recognized for our commitment to our business guests, and we’re looking forward to having the opportunity to compete for our sixth Pinnacle Award next year.

What Exactly Is a Pinnacle Award?

A wide variety of industries utilize a Pinnacle Award to honor people and organizations that have achieved the highest level of quality and success. For example, the Country Music Awards has handed out two Pinnacle Awards during the last nine years to artists who have made a long-lasting contribution to the musical genre. Although Successful Meetings Magazine gives out Pinnacle Awards every year, they’re still extremely limited in quantity, and this means that only the very best in each category will earn the right to call themselves a Pinnacle Award winner.

Moody Gardens caters to business meetings, events and non-business guests, and our attractive facility is located within 242 lush tropical acres. We’re well equipped to handle the needs of a wide variety of companies and industries due to our combined meeting and convention space of 103,000 square feet.
