Shaw's Crab House - Chicago
Book your next event with us
Service and ambiance was fantastic. Food was only good. We enjoyed the experience but with so many options in Chicago the food itself isn't good enough to go back.
Great experience as always. Went for the brunch buffet and it was amazing! So many great options to choose from!
Had brunch here with my family and in-laws. Everything on the buffet was delicious! There was everything. We all loved sampling all the offerings, especially the mini creme brûlée’s! Love Shaw’s!
I've been to Shaw's Weekend Brunch before, but it was the first time for my Mom we will be back very soon!!
We had a great dinner to celebrate my birthday! The salmon was amazing!
Food was excellent. When I return to Chicago I will eat here again.
Everything was really great. Our only issue was that Hostess at Shaw’s told us when we make a reservation online it reserves you a place in their Oyster bar area...not the Main dining room. Never saw that anywhere on the Open Table app. We had to wait 30 min but we did we a seat in the Dining Room.
If someone enjoys classic but warm ambiance this is an excellent choice. The food is expertly prepared and top quality. The staff has an in depth knowledge of the food and wine.the service is attentive and personable. The warm wood paneling and Dean Martin tunes in the background make it feel like you traveled back in time.
We live in Chicago and this is one of our go-to favorites. Delicious food with great service that is always friendly - never snooty. The menu is enormous. I always review it online before I go. Everything is delicious! Sit in the bar for a more club- like experience.
Long time favorite - consistently excellent and fresh product. New Zealand Salmon was great!
This is a great Chicago institution. Drinks are good, food is predictable. You have a choice of a sit-down dinner or raw bar which is noisy and fun.
A staple in our family. Always amazing.
We were visiting Chicago and had heard wonderful things about Shaw’s Crab House....it did not disappoint! From our lounge waiter Clay, to our dining room experience, it made for a memorable evening. The food was delicious, especially the crab legs and filet. We managed to squeeze in dessert and coffee, highly recommend Shaw’s. Classic!
Love this place! It's been around forever and is always fantastic! High quality seafood at its best!
Very good restaurant. Super service and wonderful location. The food is great. They also offered us a huge taste of their special cakes. Great experience!!
Service was great! Food was great! Probably the best Key Lime Pie I've ever eaten.
Nice - Great
Shaw's has one of the best brunches around. It is expensive, but worth it. It was nice to be able to be seated before all of our party was there. We had a very nice server who took good care of us including coming back 3 times to get beverage orders as everyone arrived. I definitely suggest it for a special occasion.
I love this restaurant! And brunch is amazing there!
The brunch lived up to all of the hype. The amount of food you can and will consume are worth the price. Can't wait to go back.
What a great location downtown - when you walk in it just screams old Chicago. The brunch was ahhhhhhmazing.
Food was outstanding. Ladies restrooms needed attention. Layout was a bit chaotic. Have to carry your buffet food through customers waiting for tables.
Still the very best Brunch in town..Everyone here is awesome! Louis we love you! Leticia is a wonderful server...
I was there for my Birthday and I must say, I will definitely return. My food was amazing as well as the service. Lettie was a really nice waitress and she offered recommendations that made our dinner experience even more delectable!
Service was excellent. Here’s what we got:
Lobster rolls: our favorite of the night. Fresh and light
Lobster bisque: ordered the bowls. Portions adequate, very filling
Blue crab stuffed flounder : huge portions, delicious
Pan seared scallops : scallops themselves were good, however I thought the heirloom potatoes and cherry tomatoes along with the tangy dressing (can’t remember what it was ) didn’t do any favors to the dish as a whole.
Also yay! for a slice of delicious chocolate cake on the house (was celebrating a birthday)
Great meal outstanding service! I highly recommend the hot plate appetizer, Shaw’s Platter, potatoes. The raspberry pie is also amazing.
Outstanding service by their staff! Will definitely be back again! The best seafood I have ever had!
Great food, great drinks, and very attentive staff
King can legs was to over cooked that the meat was to dry
My favorite brunch buffet in the city . Seafood is wonderful, including oysters king crab legs and ceviche. Has something for everyone
The overall experience was exquisite. I will definitely be back!

My wife and I had an excellent time. The food was really good and our service was very attentive and nice. We would definitely go back and would definitely recommend to our friends/family.
Family in from out of town
Our server was wonderful and attentive and the food was good. We both had the perch and it was very good.
Celebrated my mother's birthday with a lunch. Prices are reasonable for a downtown lunch at an upscale restaurant. Shaw's is definitely a classic and never disappoints.
Dungeness crab and red fish were outstanding
