Shaw's is always on point. I know it's cold in Chicago, but wish the indoor tent could be warmer. I've seen other indoor tents with better insulation.

We eat the same thing every time we come, fried shrimp and the parmesan crusted haddock. Consistently delicious!! The bread is so good, had 3 rolls before dinner. We are never disappointed. The service is always great, young man who waited on us was exceptionally friendly. Always a pleasure!!!

Host was very impolite. Dining under the tent was not at a comfortable temperature. I’m a gold member and I love LEYE, but this visit was way below the norm.

Shaw's is always fantastic food and service! The heated outdoor patio is a bit cool, but they do their best to accommodate, even provide heated blankets! This is a great way to get out during COVID times.

SHAWS has always been a favorite for many years. Love the Schaumburg location! I was so happy to see that they still were able to get the Nantucket scallops this year. The Nantucket’s are only available for a few weeks during the year & I was thrilled that they were back. Everything that we ordered for the table was very good. No complaints whatsoever. Portion sizes are good - there are always leftovers to enjoy the next day.
I’m so happy that they have 2 outdoor areas open. We were able to sit in the Tokyo Pub covered outdoor area, which had already existed prior to COVID, so it was not a “make shift” outdoor area. Love! Will be back

The food was fine but the service was terrible. The waiter came to our table twice, first to take our order and then for the check. He did not check to see if our food was ok, if we needed anything else, or even if we wanted coffee or dessert. He was extremely nice and friendly to his other tables but since we are a younger colored couple, we were treated subpar. This is the first time I have ever been treated like this is the Schaumburg/Hoffman Estates area and will never return. The downtown Chicago location is far superior especially regarding their customer service.

New Years celebration
A table of 5 adults and 1 toddler were near us. The toddler screamed high pitch screams all the way until we left.
Waitress was busy and after our food was delivered she forgot about us.
Food was excellent!!

Between the 3 of us, we had mussels, scallops, walleye, haddock and salmon. Everything was cooked perfectly. All the accompaniments with the entrees were paired very well. The raspberry mojito and Gin-Gin cocktails were excellent. The steady stream of good blues tunes contributed to a very enjoyable evening. Can’t wait to go back.

We ordered the dinner for 2.
Everything was so good!
We had a good spot in the tent. (Right in the middle where the heat was blowing through.) Our waiter was very thorough. There is a covid 19 charge... don’t complain about it, the wait staff didn’t put it there. On a 180.00 bill it was 6 and change... suck it up and get these restaurants back in business!
Youre doing a fantastic job Shaws!

The food and service were great. However, the “tent” was freezing. Should of known when they were handing out heated blankets something as up. Love the place but Until they open don’t bother. Too cold out there.

We love Shaw’s but a lot of times whoever brings the oysters can’t tell you which ones are which. Not every time, but just mentioning since that’s why we come. And the crab of course! Thank you

We love going to Shaws and we haven’t been in awhile. We sat down and our waitress came over with water and then we waited awhile for drinks and then waited even longer for dinner. We don’t mind waiting but our waitress was not friendly or personable at all and she barely even came to our table. Our steaks weren’t that great either. We were pretty bummed about our meal and our experience.
