We went for Sunday brunch to celebrate our anniversary. Very wide selection of food available. Personally I skipped most of the breakfast items and went straight for the sushi/ seafood. Great value for kids 12 and under!!

Service was excellent- very friendly and personable!!

My husband and I have been dining at Shaw's for 30 years. We could dine on seafood at plenty of new rising stars in Chicago but choose Shaw's for its consistent, excellent staff and high quality seafood. The seared ahi tuna tacos and oysters on the half shell rock the bar menu, especially during happy hour. Looking forward to our next visit!

visiting Chicago, went for both lunch, in dining room, and dinner, in bar area. Both rooms great, very different. Date and I Had tuna poke, fish and chips, hot and cold app platter in dining room. All great. Had blackened mahi, and shrimp and lobster fettucini for dinner, neither of us loved those menu items. Great atmosphere in both areas, excellent service. Recommend for authenticity, historicity.

Quantity is abundant. Quality varies. The brunch can be quite heavy. For a lighter eater, selecting from the menu may be a smarter option. A crowd scene.

It is a good way to sample different foods to determine one's likes and dislikes.

The brunch is not their best food.

This is one of my favorite restaurants - though Saturday evening - even though we had early dinner reservations, the service was not what we had previously - in terms of slow and spotty in terms of not even seeing the side order of vegetables until the very end of the meal. The server also was very slow in follow-up when we asked for additional bread, which again came late... the food was exceptional and the host stand staff are warm and friendly.... i do bring people to Shaw's as I think it's one of the best seafood restaurants/restaurants around. The crabcakes were superb - as per usual. My 2 guests were very happy with the food and ambience.

We were very disappointed with our visit to Shaw’s. We waited 20 mins for an 8pm reservation and then another 20 for our server to come to our table. They were out of my husband’s order, but didn’t inform him until after they took the menus away and then did not give him another menu upon informing him they were out. As a result of being put on the spot, he was upsold a crab dish that he didn’t even eat half of. Very disappointing, we will not be back.

The first impression was not that nice, the ladies at the front desk treated the customers like livestock. Perhaps they were stressed out (it was Friday) but the treatment we got when we arrived wasn't good. The service in the bar + restaurant was great on the other hand. We ended up having a great time with good food, a fine selection of wines and tasty cocktails. We had a combination seafood platter as a starter and the Maryland crab cakes as main course. Key lime pie for dessert. I can recommend them all. A bit noisy, but in a good sense.

This was one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in awhile. I’ve never had a harder time on deciding on an entree. There were so many great choices. We had apps, wine, sushi, one kids meal and 3 great dinners. Let’s not forget about the amazing clam chowder. Can’t wait to go back.
