Shaw's Crab House - Schaumburg Ratings and Reviews
Very disappointed the king crab was no longer offered. Waffles weren’t as good as they usually are due to being steamed in a buffet tin. No filet was disappointing as well. It used to be a great bang for your buck but my wife and I were thoroughly disappointed this year. We always come for a Valentine’s Day brunch and we will not be returning to this location. Also the deserts were awful, cookies were over cooked and burnt.
1. Rushed, cocktails, apps, soup, main and desert in under an hour - after we complained about courses arriving while we were still working the previous course
2. Portions were super small for the money.
3. Wife's fried shrimp was way over cooked closer to black than golden brown
4. Multiple employees complaining about how many reservations that had that night - not my problem
5. Shrimp Cocktail sauce, ultra heavy handed with horseradish, had to request a replacement
1. Server 5 out of 5
2. Cocktails - top notch bar
3. Seated on time
4. Oysters selection very good
5. Lobster Bisque superb
I rate food low so as not to confuse kitchens need to set a Guinness World Record for speed and the wait staff.
This was our Valentine’s Day dinner and we had never been here before. To start off we had a reservation and they are super busy and we were a little early and told to wait and could get a drink at either bar. That was completely unrealistic bc they were both packed. The service was great. The oysters were phenomenal as well as the lobster bisque! I got the salmon and to be honest it was was quite plain. I expected it to have more flavor for the price. My boyfriend had the crab cakes and they were very yummy! This place is nice and we would definitely come back for the oysters and maybe try the crab legs next time!
I always have a fantastic time at Shaw's! The staff is so friendly, nice and helpful anytime I had questions about the menu. The food is always cooked to perfection! Shaw's is my favorite seafood place to eat at and I can't wait to come back and try more of the menu. I had the seafood platter last time with a cup of the lobster bisque soup. You can't go wrong with any dish :)
Valentines Day in 2017 was a disappointment at Shawes. After a long break, we returned to our favorite seafood restaurant. We were happy we tried again. We are seniors. We’ve found that we are most comfortable being seated in the bar in the main dining room. We scheduled an early seating. All went well. Our booth was ready. Service was great as usual. The food was delicious.
We sat at bar. Bartender we had wasn’t very attentive and when he did ask if we needed anything, he interrupted us right in the middle of my boyfriend giving me a valentine gift. Other bartenders there have been great. I wish I recall the name of this one. Otherwise Shaw’s is great!
This was our very first time at Shaw's in Schaumburg and we can't wait to come back! Sat in the Oyster Bar which was Lively with great ambiance. Our bartender came over quickly the minute I sat down and made an excellent gimlet martini. I've never had that crab bite appetizer and it was amazing. My husband had the Nantucket scallops which tasted so sweet and delicious. I was going to have the crab legs but was kind of full so decided on the seafood salad which showcased you're amazing shellfish! It was our 33rd wedding anniversary and my birthday so the waitress offered us a sampling of deserts on the house. Thank you for making this day special.!
AWESOME: LARGE & LONG Alaskan Red King Crab Legs.
Delicious Desserts a must have especially Raspberry Pie and Key Lime Pie.
(Sample plate has 4 mini desserts nice for sharing.)
Other sides also very good: Garlic Spinach & Au Gratin Potatoes.
Professional & Attentive Friendly Service.
Our Family's Favorite Place to gather and dine.
Excellent Seafood Appetizers & Entries.
Seating was crowded. Waiters serving the table next to us needed us to move to serve them their dinner. They were very polite but it was a little awkward.
Server was good describing the menu but was not very present after we ordered.
Overall, it was a very good meal, although it was a little pricey based on the service and tight quarters.
All that said we plan to be back.
Probably one of the best meals I have had. Their seafood is fantastic and you cannot go wrong with their steaks either. The restaurant is pricey but well worth the visit. It isn't a place you will go to weekly but one or two times per year will certainly work out.
They have a great wine selection as well as various desserts. You can't go wrong going here!
Had the restaurant week dinner deal. Shrimp cocktail was fresh and flavorful. Caesar salad was great and loved the crab cake and lobster tail. Mini chocolate cake was excellent. Sat in the bar so our waiter was also the bartender. He did an excellent job. Everything was first class!
Seating was prompt. Busboy service was excellent - very attentive. Waitress was fair at best. Should be more like busboy. I would have loved to have them switch roles. Food was very good, although lobster was overcooked and a bit chewy. Drinks, appetizers and steaks were great. Desert and cappuccino were good as well.
