Shaw's Crab House - Chicago
Book your next event with us
Went there on Fat Tues. Service was impeccable, but was underwhelmed by their Fat Tues. The live music didn’t feel like brass jazz of NOLA. Just a regular live band. Was disappointed that there were no desserts on the Mardi Gras menu . Crawfish was very small in crawfish boil, etouffe was good, jambalaya & gumbo was just ok. Raw oysters were not shucked well, had to pick out shells in almost every oyster.
A terrific Mardi Gras celebration! Authentic, vibrant and LOTS of fun!
Oysters were amazing and went for the crawfish. Crawfish was smaller then usual but still nice and spicy.
I adore Shaw's. The seafood is the best in Chicago, the service is attentive, and I always have a wonderful, relaxing dinner there -- never rushed, even I spend 2 or 3 hours catching up with whomever I'm with!
As always, we had a stellar
Had a great dinner date with my husband in the bar area. Our server Pat was awesome and accommodating but totally not pushy or hurrying us along. The bay scallops were to die for and everything else we had was delicious also. Can’t wait to go back soon!
Awesome service. The food was lacking seasoning but overall we'd come back.
Great food. Great ambiance. A perfect place for a special occasion.
A great dining experience at this classic Chicago restaurant. Excellent service, comfortable seating, a beautiful dining room where tables are spaced appropriately to engage in conversation without yelling. Expensive, yes, but totally worth it.
Great place as always! Never disappointed.
Particularly great this time with Amy! She was outstanding.
Great food, excellent service. Super for brunch. The price is worth it. Friendly staff, so much food.
From the time I entered the restaurant until the time I left, service was impeccable. There was an abundance of food, breakfast station, seafood station, desert station, were all fully stocked and tasty. Will have to visit next time for the total brunch experience. Now drinks were free, except alcoholic beverages. I personally tried the pineapple mimosas, which was tasty, then server at the end asked if we wanted tea or coffee. Overall, service was wonderful except one stall for men’s restroom and three stalls for women, with limited seating area and long lines outside the restroom. However, I’m planning on another visit soon.
Plenty of options to choose from for the brunch buffet.
Brunch was amazing as usual. Will definitely return
This is a great place for great food. The service was outstanding! It was a Saturday evening so it was quite crowded but considering the number of tables and people it was still very enjoyable and not too loud. I would recommend without hesitation.
Was really good! Chocolate cake was a pleasant surprise on my husband’s birthday.
Very good brunch, fairly pricey though. Well stocked. Good Service. Fun mimosa flavors.
We always go for the all you can eat brunch on Saturday or Sunday and for the cost, the food is endless and you definitely get your money's worth!
Clam chowder is amazing! Great service and food.
Always enjoy coming to Chicago and eating at Shaw’s. It was my son’s 21st birthday and his first choice of restaurants.
Great food as expected.
First off, the food at Shaw's is amazing. There does not exist a better New England Clam Chowder on Earth. My problem was with a reservation issue. I initially made a reservation for 4 for a business dinner on a Friday night. At about 1pm it looked as though it would only be 2 of us dining, so as a courtesy to the restaurant I called to let them know. 30 minutes before my reservation, I had an additional member want to join us for dinner. Instead of just showing up there with 3, I called and explained. I was told they would not be able to accommodate a party of 3, so I had to decline the other person to come with us. Once there, we were seated at a 4 top. I ate dinner without any issue but before leaving I told the hostess and she seemed like she could care less. I actually got a snide comment back.
Bar is much louder than restaurant but specials are good
Great food as always and fabulous service by our waitress courtney who helped make our 50th anniversary dinner special!
