Three of us enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. We ate crab, lobster and scallops are prepared in different ways. Each dish was nicely presented and all diners said everything was prepared nicely. We will return. Thanks for a relaxing lunch.
One year Anniversary!!!
Chris is amazing! Listen to whatever he tells you!!
Fresh seafood was great but expensive (cold app for 2)- sushi rolls are not what you go here for - fresh oysters are why you go to Shaw’s.
Been here before with a group at a nice table- this time sat in the back and it might as well have been a Bonanza.
Service was professional but a little rushed and she could have been more helpful with suggestions. Place was noisy and overhearing fellow diners really hurt the ambiance.
Wine selections were very good.
We were seated promptly at our reservation time.
Our service was wonderful and the food was fresh and made excellent. We were given great choice options by our waiter. We highly recommend this location. Thank you for your hospitality and hosting.
Over cooked seafood, great service. This is the type of restaurant you visit once and strike it off of you list, like Berns in Tampa. Landmark restaurants way past their prime.
We went to Shaw's for our 1 Year Wedding Anniversary. Little did I know that they would accommodate not only with where we prefer sitting, but they surprised us with a glass of champagne and a large slice of cake after our meal. I highly recommend trying this place for seafood. We ordered oysters, king crab, lobster tails, and a few sides. All were fantastic and fresh and they didn't cheap you on the portions. Our server, Chris and the overall service was phenomenal. Ask for Chris if you can. We ordered cocktails which were on par and our waters never even came close to being empty. Again, highly recommend going to Shaw's for not only their food, but quality of service.
The absolutely best buffet brunch. Excellent food and wine.
This place is awesome ALWAYS!!!!!! Just go if you haven't and come hungry!!!
Kevin (manager) was EXCELLENT! He gave us a little surprise when we got to our table. Chris the server was EXCELLENT! All the staff gave A++++ service. No wonder why this establishment is always very busy! The food was done to perfection! Can't say enough about this restaurant!
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Chicago. Amy was our server. Great overall experience.
Food and service was good. Comparatively overpriced for what you get.
Everything was awesome, Shaw’s is one of my favorite restaurants in town. Love this place!
Great old Chicago establishment which was perfect for our celebratory birthday dinner.
Just returned from a very nice dining experience at Shaw’s. On the waiters recommendation we had the crab stuffed flounder. It was light but with some richness and a very nice sauce. The crab bisque was very good as well. The wine seemed a little pricey. We did not think the food prices were too bad. We topped it off with some ice cream. The wait staff were very good.
Juan our server was GREAT!
This was our first but hopefully not our last trip to Shaw's. We were surprised...most pleasantly/. The food seafood was delicious, and the steak was cooked perfectly. The Manhattans were perhaps the best ever. The waiter was knowledgable and had a great personality. Service was prompt. The restaurant has an older feel, not in a negative way, but replete with darker wood panelling and extremely attractive and well maintained. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who want a wonderful seafood meal but at the same time is ready to spend $75 upward per person...worth every penny.
Micci is an awesome bartender!!
The food and service were exceptional. I will definitely visit there again the next time I am in Chicago.
Pricey, for sure, but Shaw's is a gem and an institution in its own.
Brunch to celebrate a birthday. Excellent food selections
No complaints about the food- it’s fabulous. They just squeeze a few too many tables in to the dining area- it makes it difficult to find a path back to your table.
Great seafood brunch. It was of very high quality crab ,smoked salmon and shrimp. American gulf shrimp and tenderloin all great.
The bathroom is small. The water from the faucet is too strong. Such as nice place but the bathroom could use some work.
The brunch is fantastic! Great options for everyone to enjoy. Our server Danielle was entertaining and attentive to our needs.
Great value for the variety and quality of food offered. We’ll definitely be back!!
Louis the maitre d is the man and is excellent!!! We keep coming back!
Honestly, the food was 'good', service was 'good' - no real complaints per say - Just nothing that great either - definitely nothing to justify the cost. Pricing adds up quickly for what ends up being an ok meal and experience. For the total bill, I could think of many many other places I'd much rather spend that kind of $$ at.
Love this place. Old world charm and service. Great seafood.
Raphael’s service was the best!
We went to the Saturday brunch. OMG what a brunch!
Great classic food - seafood, steakhouse
Wonderful experience. Food delicious. Service exceptional. Even gave us complimentary key lime pie for it being our first time there. Only negative is that wine is very over-priced. Cheapest bottle was $44 and then wide gap to next lowest price.
Wonderful never disappoints
Excellent food, excellent service!! First class dining experience and one of my favorite Chicago restaurants!
Girls night out! Love being able to get a last minute reservation and go to Shaw’s!
Consistently delicious. Great service.
We were sat in the middle of two tables so it was loud. The waiter dropped a knife which flipped onto my customer with food spraying on his clothes. Food was ok. King Crab was not cracked and he thought it was supposed to be as it had in the past. Just not an overall good experience.
Crab legs are the best I’ve had in Chicago for sure. The Cremini mushroom, hashed potatoes and broccolini sides were excellent as well. The dessert sampler plate was perfect to try most of the desserts at once. Fresh-shucked oyster variety and local/regional beer selection at the bar was impressive as well; all tasted great.
