Alaskan King Crab bites were excellent - Tuna Terrific!

The 'Happy Hour' oysters at half price should be offered in the main dining room and not just in the bar, especially on Sun-Thurs when not many tables filled at that time. I can appreciate full price when busy. The result in our case was no oyster or starter ordered at all.

Anniversary dinner. The service was great and the food was outstanding! We started with complimentary champagne, and went into our shrimp cocktail appetizer. Ambiance was very nice. Hostess, wait staff and employees all very kind and helpful. The Shaw’s in Chicago is just as nice in my opinion.

Our server Steve not super friendly. Couldn't even get a refill on coffee told us it was all poured out. Then decided to reset our table while we were still trying to finish our half cup of coffee. Ugh. Slow service unfriendly. Very dissapointed. One of our favorite places

Unusually poor service on this trip. There were very few people there so no excuse

Forgot to ask 2 guests if they wanted drinks even after drinks were brought for others

Long waits on bottles of wine
Cocktail glasses empty for abnormal periods of time

Super long wait on desert offerings

We made a reservation for 12:45, Sunday, 4/15. We were not surprised to see how busy the restaurant was, due to the Tax Day Special they were doing. However, after waiting over a half hour, with no status update, we were starting to get upset...and very hungry. After being seated, still didn't see our waiter for over five minutes more. Many of the food selections on the brunch were empty and it took quite a while for more product to be stocked. The food in general, was wonderful, as usual, but it just seems that they just weren't prepared for the volume of business this day. We're able to consider this a one off experience, and hope to have our usual great experience in the future.

We've eaten at Shaw's before, usually for early dinner, and the food has been average to above. This was our first brunch, and disappointing. The staff seemed to have a difficult time keeping the hot buffet replenished, and even then the food wasn't hot when brought out. We tried several items, most were just okay.
Servers also seemed to be spread a little thin.
I realize there are some who like quantity over quality, but we're not big eaters. We would have preferred something better.
Overall, I guess we expected something different at this price point. We'll stick to the regular menu after this.

Everything was excellent. Service and food quality was amongst the best I have seen. Couple of instances there were no plates or food was getting refilled, but that is due to a promotion they had going on. Will be back soon!!

We came in for brunch and were seated promptly. The service was excellent from everyone we came in contact with. Our table was nice and the room was relatively calm and quite. Where the buffet was staged was loud and very crowded. Constant line of people waiting for food. The food was replenished immediately. However the food was very average, to subpare and was not the level we expected especially for the cost. We did not feel the dishes represented high quality, nor was the variety at the level of a high end seafood reasutrant not only was the food cheap it was either tasteless or tasted unpleasant. The oysters were dry,bisque was luke warm,crab shells were found in crab cakes,chicken dry,mac n cheese was a joke. The cod was good but really that's the only fish.???

We had a wonderful meal and great time celebrating my son's confirmation! We arrived early and were seated promptly! The host were friendly and accommodating as was our server Maria. She did an excellent job and was attentive, friendly, fun and recognized we were there for a celebration. We truly love going to Shaw's and will return in the future!

The food here is always very good, and the service is always exceptional. The only thing wrong that stuck out to my wife and I were the several large water spots on the ceiling, and also several ceiling tiles were sagging down or popped up. This was the first time I noticed this at this location, hopefully they get that fixed soon.

Wonderful Easter Brunch. We sat in the bar area and did not feel like we missed anything not being in the main dining room. Sean our bartender and server was phenomenal. Very friendly, attentive and truly a pleasure to be around. Food was very good and there was something for everyone. The only negative that I have with almost every Buffet including this one is that the food is not hot enough. Despite that we had a wonderful Easter brunch. Especially loved the raw bar!

We came for the Easter brunch. Last year the food was much better. This year it seemed very bland tasting. Also I noticed an employee in the facilities going straight out without washing his hands.

Went here for Easter brunch. We've gone here for brunch a number of times in the past and it always included Crab and beef tenderloin. no crab or beef tenderloin this time. At $55.00 per prerson, this is pretty steep for the food that was offered. The food was good, but not worth $55/person. It's not about the cost, but the value you get for it. Will not be going to brunch here again.

Exceptional service, wonderful cuisine and they will make sure that your dining experience is enjoyable. They will “make it right” if they don’t meet your expectations, which is why they go above and beyond! Highly recommended!
