Service was great, but food was over priced and nothing special.

We have always enjoyed eating Copper River salmon at Shaw’s Crab House. However, the manager explained they did not receive a supply this year. He recommended the King Salmon and it was outstanding. Kevin turned a disappointing start into an overall exceptional dining experience.

The oysters (we had 2 dozen, 2 different types) were amazing. Steaks and sides were perfectly cooked and waiter was attentive without being annoying

Food and drinks were not good at all ..it’s very pricey for the only thing good on the menu to be the shrimp 🤷🏾‍♀️...and let’s not get on the service ! Our waiter was rude and dismissive and we ended up needing the manager to finish out our dinner 😡

Fantastic in every way. No one could possibly do a better job of maintaining a safe environment for its customers. Brilliant and I can’t wait to return.

I was disappointed for several reasons. I had a steamed Maine lobster but it was chewy. This was not my first bad experience at Shaw’s with lobster. My other complaint was also as past experiences I specifically requested pure melted butter but again as in the past, my melted butter was mixed with oil. I will return to Shaw’s but albeit: probably not in a great rush but I will never again order lobster. My son ordered salmon and he did tell me that it was only fair.

Attempted to do the brunch but due to the viral outbreak, we ended up ordering off the menu. It was still a great date with my sister friends. We’ll go back whenever the brunch becomes available.
