We came for the Sunday Brunch Buffet. It’s certainly not cheap but it turned out to be an absolutely adequate price for the value provided. The food was fantastic and the choices were plentiful. I actually don’t remember ever seeing a larger Brunch Buffet. I would recommend this to friends and family and plan on going back.

Food good, but not great. The tempura roll was actually cold, like it had been refrigerated. Tasteless. Bread basket was good, bisque was fine but not exceptional. Halibut fine. Again, overall OK, but didn’t live up to the hype. Better food and value at the Oyster Bar near McCormick

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.
