Shaw's Crab House - Chicago
Book your next event with us
This experience at Shaw’s was a tad disappointing! I’ve had better service and food! Items were marginal in terms of preparation and timing!
Excellent evening with pleasant servers and really good food. Thank you to staff.
The food was outstanding! The service was outstanding! We will definitely return to Shaw's!
Brunch is. very expensive
Their weekend brunch is amazing! Eric is such a fabulous waiter, and the management team is fantastic. Great place to take family and friends that are visiting Chicago.
The best food, service and wine selection ! Thank you so much.
Dinner with my daughters, what a great evening. Shaw's could not have been a better venue to get together. Our waitress was wonderful. We loved the crab legs, so sweat tasting. We've been coming here for years and nothing disappointed us. Just a great dinner!
From the first moment, a delightful experience. Best oysters ever. Wonderful scallops. Fresh and tasty haddock. Service was professional and delightful.
It was a classic spot for a classic couple for celebrating our anniversary.
Great as always
We had a nice lunch at Shaw’s on a Sunday. We weren’t aware that they only offer their very extensive brunch buffet in their main dining room on Sundays, and weren’t interested in eating as much as one night feel obligated to at $70 a head. (But, if you’re interested in eating a lot, this looked like one heck of a brunch-the dessert table alone was amazing!) Our waiter was very sweet and explained that we could use their normal menu if we sat in the bar area (that doesn’t open until 11:30 am on Sundays). He offered us beverages while we waited, which was kind.
We were seated in the bar right at 11:30. I had the sautéed perch, which was yummy. My son had the haddock and a cup of lobster bisque, which he also liked. The portions were large. We split a caesar salad. We splurged and had their dessert sampler which included a little creme brûlée, and small (but absolutely adequate) portions of raspberry pie, key lime pie, and triple chocolate cake. They were ALL yummy. Our server was friendly and on top of things. (They make their desserts in-house, btw.)
We go to Shaw’s each time we head to Chicago because we like the 1940s atmosphere and the food is consistently good. It never disappoints (and is always busy, so do make reservations).
Another fantastic meal at Shaw’s!! The Nantucket Bay Scallops were fantastic!!
Shaw’s was incredibly accommodating, as we were held up in traffic due to snow and pretty late. They ensured we had a great experience and great food.
Warm welcome from the Host to server. We had excellent service! Stone crabs were terrific and server offered a key lime pie! We mentioned that we were celebrating a birthday later in the weekend and she arranged a birthday presentation plate. Always great! Any time of year!
Shaw's never disappoints. The food, and service are exceptional.
It was just okay. We usually love to go to Shaw’s, but the most recent visit was disappointing. The seafood was good, but the side dishes were not. The hash browns had some kind of sautéed onions under the potatoes that tasted processed and the Brussels sprouts had a strange tasting spice mix on them.
Wonderful time and excellent food, great service. I have only great things to say. I have high standards and they were absolutely met or exceeded.
We have always eaten in the Oyster Bar and loved every occasion. We decided on the main dining room for my wife’s birthday and it too was a wonderful experience. White tablecloth, fantastic service, and delicious seafood . Soup - New England clam chowder, salad - chopped, and entree’s- steamed Alaskan King Crab legs and yellow lake perch were superb. Shaw’s does it right!
I having been looking for a seafood restaurant in Chicago for awhile now and friends suggested I try Shaw's. The crab cake was excellent however the gumbo , king crab and scallops were just ordinary. The wait staff was excellent but I think overall the price was a tad bit too high.
OMG! The hamachi sashimi was to die for! Clam chowder - delish! Old Chicago ambience.
One of our special occasion spots, this time for two birthdays and an anniversary. Everything was excellent as always, and we received two full desserts on the house for the birthdays. Highly recommended!
Awesome ambiance l, and beyond excellent staff. Great experience overall!
Superb food, as usual. Top notch clam chowder, great crab cakes and tuna, excellent au gratin potatoes, concluding with wonderful chocolate cake
