Great food and atmosphere
Amazing service and food!
We had crab legs and they were delicious. The waiter was efficient but brusque. He rushed off too quickly. We weren’t even able to tell him we were celebrating a birthday. He wasn’t around much either.
Comida muy rica , es servicio es bueno
Food was average at best for the price
Celebrated my friend's birthday & they really rolled out the red carpet for her!! 🥰🥰🥰🥰
Unbelievable experience from the time we walked through the front door until my last sip of a 20yr Tawny Port wine I had for dessert! Thank you to all the staff who made out visit memorable! Will be back again.
Our anniversary dinner was excellent and the staff made it even more special!
We ordered the Salmon and Lobster tail w/ creamed spinach, lobster Mac n cheese and broccoli casserole. Everything was amazing
Classic place, fantastic service and great food and drink. Highly recommend Shaw’s.
And, if you love oysters, then this is your place!!
Mauricio was amazing his Service was bar none!!!
we had a very good dinner at shaw's. my only complaint was that we were rushed by the waiter. maybe he was just trying to be attentive, but he constantly came by asking if we were ready to order and then our entrees arrived just as we started our soup. luckily he sent them back and they were put under hot lights to keep warm - the plates were very hot when we got them.
Best seafood in Chicago .I would never go anywhere else.
We were very disappointed with the food. Each in the party ordered the walleye. It was very dry and tasteless and the mushrooms were over cooked. Our waiter had just started two days ago and for the most part did a nice job but did not come back to check on the meal after it delivered.and, there was no sign of a manager. I understand the current staffing issues at many restaurants but there is no excuse for overcooked food.
We have been to both of the Shaw’s restaurants and never had experiences this bad. My wife and I had an important guest with us, we were very embarrassed. Given the prices and this experience I am not sure we will risk it again.
Server was great. The food was subpar. The lobster roll had no flavor. The lobster mac and cheese was terrible. The cheese sauce was not a good cheese. There were only 2 pieces lobster in the mac and cheese.
The service was amazing and the food and drinks were even better.
My sister and I celebrated our birthday's. The food was amazing, our waiter was fantastic. I will definitely come back the next time I'm in town.
Sat in the bar. Loud, but fun. Service was very good and the food was excellent.
Very great waitress and ambiance! Food was in point!
Overpriced for a mini itty-bitty food samples. It was our first time there I wanted a better welcome experience, it was my husbands birthday and I didn’t feel any wow. Considering we paid $55 a person I expected better experience better hospitality better food. When I ordered a virgin Mary drink he pretty much poured a V8 fruit drink or vegetable drink and a cup what a piece of celery and gave it to me it was disgusting. The desert was so shameful bite-size I will not even present it to my neighbour especially paying $55 so sad. Highly not recommend.
Everything was excellent from the start to finish 👏
Food was fantastic and fresh loved it
Always good food and drink. Israeli Sauvignon blanc that was unusual and very good. Granddaughter ordered fish tacos and didn’t like the sauce but that was no big deal. We like going to Shaw’s when we are in Chicago but it’s probably not worthy of 5 stars. Solid 4 star and a great choice for good seafood.
Best crab legs. Great dinner with large portions of food.
Excellent service and staff.
Had a wonderful time this evening. The food was on point and our server Nico made the experience that much better.
Very nice indeed.
Great sautéed perch! The oysters, though not “in season” were outstanding as well. Properly shucked and very cold. Choice of three east and three west coast types!
First time visiting the restaurants .. their crab legs are outstanding . Fish haddock was also delicious .
We will definitely be back .
Great seafood and wonderful service!
Shaw's Crab House has always been my go to place for drinks and seafood. Whether you are at the Oyster Bar or Dinin
