I didn't choose the restaurant- a friend was visiting for just one day and said he was told if you eat in one restaurant in Chicago it HAS to be Shaw's. As much as I love the Lettuce family of restaurants in general, Shaw's is just not my favorite (although I love the Thomas Melvin murals) and there are SO many more interesting restaurants- but I humored my friend and we went. I had the lobster tacos , which were quite good but really not enough food for an actual meal. My friend had the lobster roll, which he liked but was disappointed that it was served with a side as mundane as French fries and was frankly appalled at the price - $34. That said, our waiter - Pat - was great.
Great properly cooked food, not over seasoned or overcooked (tough request for some restaurants in the area) good selection and great tasting
Shaw’s has been a staple of my husband’s and mine ever since we first started visiting Chicago on a regular basis! It never disappoints! We had the Caesar salad & Parmesan encrusted whitefish plus oysters on the half shell (sampler platter). Everything was absolutely perfect! Our waiter was attentive & amazing too.
Good only good place good food, expensive... for crabs a must go place
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner and the waiter was outstanding. Good food (the Alaskan King Crab was great), and the atmosphere was great as well.
Excellent food, great atmosphere in the main dining room. The bar is too lively for our taste.
This classic seafood restaurant never disappoints. The quality of the food, as well as the quality of the service is top notch
Great good along with excellent service makes for a great dining experience. We were so happy we chose Shaw's!
Food and service were amazing as usual. I've bee n going for years and have never been disappointed.
My husband and I went for the Sunday Brunch. It was a spectacular buffet with 5 different food stations including steamed crab legs, prime rib, sushi, oysters, crab cakes and a massive selection of delicious desserts. They also had traditional breakfast foods like made to order omelets, waffles, bacon, sausage, hash browns, etc. However, I filled up on seafood and treats, which were all amazing! The server was also fantastic. She was attentive and helpful and even brought us some chocolate cake and chocolate covered strawberries to go because we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. I definitely plan to go back the next time I’m in town. So delicious!
Excellent food, went for ousters and surf and surf
Great seafood! Great service! Highly recommend!!
Had Dick as our waiter - fantastic! Everyone who looked after us was awesome. The wine by the glass was excellent and a nice sized glass. The food really surprised us in its quality and taste. We didn’t expect it to be as amazing as it was. The dessert, key lime pie was special. The ambience in the main dining room was quite cool.
Food was excellent. Service was great. Only complaint is the eye roll from the hostess, because when she was ready to seat us 2 people were in the restroom. We didn't eye roll or complain about being seated 15 min. Later than our reservation.
Have been a couple of times the food is always great the atmosphere is nice it's always clean and the staff is very attentive I tell everyone the should go at least once don't need a reason just go
We LOVE this place... especially the Oyster Bar. Delicious every time. This is a must do every time you are downtown Chicago.
Great service and awesome seafood. We brought my dad here when he came to visit and he loved it.
Amazing weekend brunch! Pace yourself and try everything!
We love Shaws! Come nearly every time we are in the Chicago area and we drive up on occasion just for the weekend brunch.
While we love the Shaw’s Sunday Brunch, we experienced it on a Saturday for the first time. The buffet layout is less spread out and that was nice. The food was amazing as usual and the Shaw’s Brunch remains a favorite whenever in the Chicago Loop.
Excellent quality food with friendly efficient service. Rather busy at 9pm Friday but the noise level reduced to a pleasant hum later.
Such great service and appreciate the attention to all details!
Timing of service Washington perfect! Felt like home but with a pro envorinment.
Food was good, very tasty. BUT and that is a BIG but, the "JUMBO LUMP CRAB CAKE (6oz)" was more like a JUMBO LUMP MINI CRAB CAKE (x?oz). Since I also had the MARYLAND STYLE CRAB CAKE as an appetizer (for half of the price) and about the same size, I could not feel very happy about it.
great seafood, service and ambiance
it was oyster fest and a a company was there from the east coast and we ev n had a few free ones, awesome!
I took board members and our meeting facilitator to Shaw's...a great way to show off Chicago and enjoy a fabulous meal! I always love the lobster tacos, and the lobster bisque is like none I've had anywhere else. My companions enjoyed fish and scallops, and everyone was thrilled.
Excellent as usual. Our server, Eric (I apologize if incorrectly) was extremely attentive. Food and wine, perfect.
We enjoyed a delicious lunch celebrating my brother’s birthday. We will definitely be back again!
Dinner at Shaw’s was nothing short of perfection!!
The service was exceptional and the food was absolutely delicious! Try the Kale salad! The ambiance was calming and restaurant appeared very clean. We were celebrating a birthday and our lovely server made it special!!
Thank you for a memorable evening!
Any was an excellent server!
For me is the best place in the City, but this time I was another happy at all. Not was as special as other times, I chose Shaw’s to celebrate something really important for me but there was no magic.
Great evening of celebrations with fantastic food and a great atmosphere. We chose to sit in the bar rather than the restaurant so we could listen to the live blues music. Same menu with added entertainment, bonus! Lively atmosphere but not too loud that we couldn’t still have a conversation. Would definitely return and recommend to others!
We had the red snapper and warm seafood appetizer platter. Fantastic food. I was surprised the snapper didn’t come with anything on the side.
The Creme brûlée was just ok. Not a real crispy top.
Our waitress was polite but not personable at all.
I was very disappointed in how long it took to get our meal. It was at least 45 minutes after we ordered. I expect a restaurant of this caliber to be able to handle peak dining times. I am blaming the kitchen, not the server. But it would have been nice for the server to explain that the kitchen was backed-up, instead of my having to inquire if our dinner order had been lost.
Great atmosphere, great food, I would have liked more sides. Maybe mashed potatoes, baked potatoes with butter and sour cream, and some type of rice. Some sides ran out, and there was a 5-10 minute wait. I will come back for another experience.
Hands down best seafood I’ve had.. excellent service as well! 12/10.. will definitely be back!
Shaw's opened the year we got married and we try to go once a year cause we love it. It is a bit pricey, but always high quality. When you pay top dollar, you expect excellent service, which we did not get. Our server came up two bites in to my salad and said our entrees were ready did we want them held in the kitchen or brought out? Yikes. We had it brought and I had to wrestle with the bus boy to grab the last few bites of my salad. Server asked us if we wanted dessert and I said no. My husband said yes and ordered a Sundae and I said I would eat a bite. Without asking our server split the Sundae in half and put it in front of me. When I said I didn't order it, he said I split it which I did not want.
I have eaten here many times. Excellent consistent quality of food and service.
We enjoyed every aspect of the appetizer, soups, entrees, ambience and service.
We’ve been to Chicago several times, but this was our first visit to Shaw’s. I almost cancelled the reservation after an Uber driver told me it wasn’t the best seafood. I don’t know what his motives were, but it was excellent! The service exceeded my expectations. The food exceeded my expectations, and I will be back!
