Lacking in variety. Where's the ice cream?6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the PriceWe absolutely enjoyed the Sunday Brunch. Some may think it's a little pricey for brunch, however, the vast variety of seafood/breakfast items were well worth the money. The one thing is that the food is a little bland and you'll definitely need salt and pepper.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious SeafoodMy parties have eaten here many times and never been disappointed. Brunch, lunch or dinner, this restaurant treats its' customers well. The food was excellent and our server, Krystal, attentive and helpful.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the Sunday Brunch!We've been here 4-5 times for brunch and never walk away disappointed.

The waiter was very welcoming and informative.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother outstanding diningAnother outstanding dining experience at Shaw's - Schaumburg. Soft shell crab is back in season and it's as delicious as always. They've started to offer new "sides" on a regular basis, and a new one was brussel sprouts in butter with bacon bits. Outstanding! Service is, as usual, well above average.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!First time attending the Sunday Brunch at it was out of this world fantastic.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AM39th Wedding Anv.Great hot seafood platter....Fried Shrimp excellent and very large...4 bites...twin 8oz Lobster tails very tender...flavorful

Especially enjoyed the peach cocktail.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinner was very specialShaw's did a great job again! I am never disappointed when I dine here. This was a special birthday dinner celebration and Shaw's made another great impression on me and my guests. I love Shaw's!! I will choose Shaw's whenever there is an option. Great steak, fish, crab legs, appetizers, drinks, wine list. There is something for everyone here.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMoutstanding mother's day bruncheven i was impressed! outstanding special occassion venue.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGot to Shaw's on time forGot to Shaw's on time for 7:15 reservation, had to wait almost 40 minutes. No big deal. Server was good , food was very good.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFreshest fish in the NW suburbsWhenever we have a taste for some fresh seafood we always seem to wind up at Shaw's. As usual they did not disappoint. The halibut is excellent no matter how they serve it. While the dining room area would qualify as a "romantic" spot (white table cloths, subdued lighting, etc.) my husband and I prefer the more lively Oyster Bar. We used to like the outdoor seating in the summer and were sad to see that Toko Rio has taken over that space.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServerThe server we had never missed a beat in being of service to us without being intrusive and was one of the nicest young ladies we have had in years.!!! Her name by the way was Krystal5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently excellentThis was our second time at this location. The food and service was excellent. The noise level is very conversation friendly. We dined with friends whom we hadn't seen in a long time and there was no hurry on the part of the staff to 'whoosh' us out the door. Crab cakes, grouper and haddock were our entrees and all were really good.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThank you Maria and everyoneThank you Maria and everyone including chef, other servers and hostess for making our date night.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Lobster Tail everI really like lobster, and decided to splurge a bit and get the Surf and Surf combo. The lobster tail was the best I had ever eaten! We had a wonderful meal, and especially enjoyed the pampering by the staff and managemenbt5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFresh seafood and sushiWe went to Shaws for a special date. We always request to sit on bar because it is more casual and relaxed. Plus on Saturday not there is live music. I ordered the King Crab roll and a spicy shrimp tempura Maki. My husband had blackened shrimp tacos. Both prepared excellently and super fresh. Nothing drenched in sauces to hide the flavor because it was delicious on its own. The dessert menu is wonderful too but we were so full we didn't need it.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWait staff was very informativeWait staff was very informative and attentive. Food was good. Armosphere was nice. Very pleasant dinner.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMRed King Crab loverStarting with a well priced wine bottle list, raw oyster bar, and crab thats is rich even without the melted butter, Shaw's never fails you in the romance department. From start to finish, your meal is delightfully sinful in flavor. The decor and ambiance allow for a "dress up" night and the scene is lively and fun at both the oyster bar as well as the dining room bar. Expect great things after a night at Shaw's. One of our favorites when celebrating an event. Recommended is the Red King Crab....fit for a king and queen.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe scallops were delicious!The scallops were delicious! Wait staff was very attentive and service was excellent. Had the dessert sampler and it was wonderful as well. Always a great meal at Shaw's!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite restaurantIt's always time for Shaw's! This restaurant never disappoints me or my guests. It doesn't matter if you are sitting in the main dining room or the bar, this place is the best of the best.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMA "Go To" spotIt's always nice to have lunch or dinner or cocktails/appetizers at Shaw's. And the restaurant is laid out to accommodate everyone. More formal and business meetings have the dining room. If you're looking for more casual, you can eat and drink at the bar area. The oysters are very fresh, and there are amazing entrees. The service is always welcoming.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional for Weekend Brunch.Exceptional for Weekend Brunch. Notably, the best Brunch we have ever had.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMShaw's Crab House has theShaw's Crab House has the best table service around. I have never had such great service anywhere else. Great Job!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply Divine!It is a lovely atmosphere evoking the 40's or 50's... just so comfortable and warm. The best part was their willingness to seat us in a quieter area and turn the volume down on the music...few places are so accommodating!
The service was spot on.. and the food delicious! I could have simply kept getting more bowls of the lobster bisque and been happy! The chopped seafood salad was delicious and there was a fair amount of everything listed which is not the case in most places these days either.. and the small and inexpensive desserts.. divine!! The bananas foster and key lime pie were devoured!!!
My sisters and I met for lunch here and felt like we were on a mini vacation somewhere far away ... relaxing and just right on all levels!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time toThis was our first time to Shaw's.

This was our first time here, we WILL definitely be back!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe treated ourselves to Shaw's.We treated ourselves to Shaw's. It is not an inexpensive evening but the fish is always great. The only problem we had was that it was more than 45 minutes from placing our order to getting our appetizers. The two tables seated at least 10 minutes after us, who placed their orders after we did, both got their appetizers and entrees before we did. We had a good waitress but I cannot figure out what we had to wait for.
The food was wonderful when we got it but it was a long, long wait.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food but overpriced.We enjoyed our dinner but everything is overpriced.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThis buffet is great: excellentThis buffet is great: excellent seafood, service, desserts.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!!!!We enjoyed the Brunch on Sunday very much!!! It was a good opportunity to taste few different dishes that we had not before. Sushi, oysters, potato salad, king crab legs, key lime pie and waffles on one plate !!!! Awesome. We are going back in few weeks for my mom's birthday. She will be so happy. I cannot wait.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMTook my children, ages 14Took my children, ages 14 and 11, to enjoy the brunch for the first time. They did4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMJust great seafoodWhat more can you say - if you want consistently perfectly-done seafood, go to Shaw's. I had halibut with ivory lentils and carrot broth - it was delicious and perfectly done. The person with whom I dined had fried shrimp and fries - they said it was excellent. We also both had wedge salads - the ingredients were totally fresh and despite the salad being huge, I devoured it because it tasted so good. They also gave us a basket with excellent lavash and cheesy rolls. Yum! You can't afford to dine there all the time, but as a special occasion, it's way worth the trip.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSupremely delicious and romantic!We went to Shaws based on a suggestion from a friend. We were told the seafood was amazing so we decided to go here for my husbands birthday. We made reservations ahead of time and I'm glad we did because the wait time was almost an hour without them. We were sat near the bar in a cozy booth. The drink menu was reasonably priced. My husband and I had the sampler combo which was a little pricey at $14 per person based on the small amount you're given. But it was very good as well. For our main course my husband had the Alaskan crab and steak combo. He kept on saying its the best crab he's ever had. I had to then try it and he was right! Supremely delicious! My entree was the lobster and pasta, very good also. Will definitely go again!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMShaw's-Schaumburg-April, 2013We come here for a great seafood meal about once a year. The food is outstanding and we enjoy the bar. Unfortunately, our server was only fair this time.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience. Server hadGreat experience. Server had spot-on recommendations and was extremely responsive.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMService was excellent. WelcomingService was excellent. Welcoming smiles. Wonderful selection for brunch that is sure to please any size group.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMpredictable, in a good wayGood food with a fun atmosphere. The manager was kind enough to turn the air down (in the up and down temperatures of spring) on a crowded Saturday night. Very kind. Too bad they were out of the red king crab legs the night we were there, otherwise I'm guessing the night would have been 5 stars :)4/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
