Wife and I ordered crab legs. Hers were in great shape. Mine should have been on the buffet. Old, shells were rubbery, crab was overcooked and dry. Very disappointing. Service was terrible. Tried to send them back but our waiter was too focused on his 4 and 7 tops.

Waitress was excellent.
Sushi and Oysters were good.
Steak and Lobster was only ok. Nothing special.

The service and seafood here are always exceptional. Where Shaw's has fallen down lately, are with their vegetables. Twice now, we've been sorely disappointed with a side dish. On a previous occasion, the cauliflower, which was talked up greatly by the server, was overcooked, mushy and without much in the way of flavor or seasoning. On this last occasion, the brussel sprouts were quite bitter (as in, not very fresh), over-doused with vinegar, and extremely dry. We have no issue paying a premium price for a side dish, but not if it's going to be mediocre. Stick with steamed spinach, or order a salad, if you want vegetables in your meal.
