Best seafood and BEST service! All of our dinners were prepared and presented perfectly, and the service was very attentive.
Great service and great food! My sorority sister and I truly enjoyed ourselves. I always love the service and experience when dining here.
Great food. Would eat here again next time we are in town. Very casual atmosphere and really good food.
We come here every June 13, for my birthday. We sadly had to miss last year due to COVID but being back this year at full capacity was such a treat. The staff is always amazing and makes every customer feel as though they are the only ones that are eating there. We will back next year to celebrate!
Went for a Birthday brunch. The food was good, but this is the third time I’ve been in four months. The brunch selection is good except for the broccoli dish. It’s always dry, and never flavorful. I would highly suggest changing the last course of the brunch to something other than Mac and cheese and broccoli
Great dining experience. Got the brunch buffet. Lots of food and great variety for a very reasonable price. Service was great. Would definitely recommend.
We have had several situations recently with restaurants becoming busier as Covid restrictions are relaxed. There have been issues with service and food quality. That was not the case at Shaw’s. We had by far the best meal we have had since the pandemic started, and the service was excellent.
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.
Shaw's has an old time ambiance and pace which we really enjoyed. Great menu and our selections were excellent . The service was friendly and efficient . We will go again.
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!
Excellent meal at Shaw’s. We were seated promptly even though we arrived a tad early. The waiter was stupendous! Knowledgeable and friendly; plus he provided excellent service. The food was very good! My daughter ate a lobster which was fun and excellent, I had great soft shell crab and we had fabulous friend oysters and oysters Rockefeller.
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.
