    It was a quiet time at the restaurant - noon on a Monday. A knowledgeable waitress gave us perfect attention and service. We ordered from the day's luncheon menu. The food was delicious; perfectly cooked and with nice presentation. For lunch, it was a bit pricey with tax and tip - but isn't everything these days?

    Everything was delicious. The lobster roll I had was fresh, tender and full of lobster, not rubbery at all. Will come back to try other dishes, like the crab cakes. Our server was also very good.

    The food was superb! I thought the service in our experience was stuffy boarding on unfriendly. It felt like we were on the clock and we needed to stay on our server’s timetable so the table could get turned. At this price point, it would have been nice to enjoy the ambiance of this fine restaurant at reasonable relaxing pace. After all the total for two with one drink each included was $250.00.

    The Alaskan crab legs were awesome as always. Expensive but so good. Next to us was a young family with a loud screaming toddler. When I’m Paying for an expensive dinner out I expect to not have to listen to the ongoing screaming. We were in the dining room. Maybe customers with young children should be in a different dining area.

    The fried shrimp was the best I have ever had. Big jumbo shrimp, delicious crispy outside and flavor galore. Usually I order the fish and chips that is equally awesome but decided to step out of my box. Glad I did. Absolutely delicious.

    Have not been to Shaws in years. This visit was a pleasant surprise. Overall very good experience. Very good wait staff. Food was very good value for the money. Wish there were more tables than booths as the booth is tight for four adults. Will return in the future.

    Everything was lovely except, I had the special of halibut. The fish came out and the first bite just didn't seem right. But I ate it anyways because how in the world would Shaw's ever serve bad fish. Later that night and the next day I paid the price for that decision. What was an early Father's day dinner (Saturday afternoon) ended up keeping me in bed for Father's day. Lesson learned, If it doesn't seem right don't eat it.

    It was a good dinner. The dinner for 2 crab only literally came with 2 legs total. That seemed a little sparse. Also the filet while good were cooked a little under what was requested. Booth was a little weird to sit at with two people. It was one of those half moon booths

    Never even got to eat. Got there at 6:30pm and it was not super busy. Got seated and immediately ordered drinks and 4 appetizers with our waitress. The drinks came right away, and then our waitress disappeared... We waited 45 minutes before finally getting up and going to the host to ask for a manager to tell him what happened. He apologized and offered to seat us on the dining side as opposed to the bar side but at that point we were hungry and out of time. I MIGHT be back. I love the food and the atmosphere of the restaurant. I wish the manager would have given his card or info so that we wouldn't have this problem again in the future should we come back. Maybe ask the server how long it will be for the food to come out to try and stress to the waitstaff that you would like your food in a timely manner....

    I the past, this has been a restaurant we’ve really enjoyed bringing friends to, last night however was a disappointing experience. We had reservations and waited 15-20 minutes. We were seated in the back area and people were packed in. It was so loud, you could only talk to the person next to you. After our soup arrived we had to ask for bread which didn’t arrive until the soup was gone. Our meals all arrived at the same time, but the sides didn’t come until ten minutes later when we no longer really wanted them. Not sure what changed but sad this was not the evening we expected based on previous experience.

    Have come here before and had good experiences. However, this time the food was poorly prepared for both my wife and me. Our entrees were not good, including burnt(not grilled or blackened) broccolini. For the prices they are charging,does not seem right. Server was pretty good

    The food was very disappointing. I always order the seafood salad every time I dine at Shaws. It had always been great! But the last few visits, the seafood salad has just not been the same. There is barely any crab meat or seafood besides a few shrimp. The dressing has changed too. It is now tasteless! My husband ordered the walleye, and he said it was cold. My son ordered shrimp tempura maki rolls, which were also tasteless. (They tasted like they were pre-made.) The price does not match up to the quality of the food. I don’t think we will be coming back any time soon.

    Our evening was wonderful. Diane was a phenomenal! She paced our meal perfectly and did a great job at answering our questions about items. She was willing to engage in our questions though not intrusive at all. We ordered a variety of items, crab cake appetizer which was perfect as usual and seafood gumbo which had just the right amount of spice. We order the combo plate which had garlic shrimp, scallops and a petite filet. It was more than enough food and each item was delicious. I asked for steak sauce, but didn't need to use it. One of my sons ordered the filet Oscar and raved about it. The other one order the yellowtail and was amazed at the flavor and portion size. We ordered 2 sides which was more than enough for the 4 of us. We ended our dinner with a slice of key lime pie. We were truly too full for it but managed to finish it. Honestly, this place never disappoints!
