While the service was excellent the food was not. My husband and I decided to come here just to have oyster Rockefeller. The oyster Rockefeller was ok not great. ( not what you expect from a “seafood restaurant) and Unfortunately we did have to send back the lobster Mac n cheese because it was not tasty at all. Again, I did not expect that especially from a restaurant like this. But our service was great, food came out pretty quick, drinks were good.

But we will not return here again. Not for the money we spent and the quality of the food.

We were promptly seated and liked our spot. However, we had 4 people and the table we had was way too small for us, and we only really had 2 appetizers to start with.
Service was pretty slow; it took us about 45 min to even place a food order.
It was my moms bday and I did note that when booking the reservation, but it was never acknowledged.

Also, one person in the group did not order a second drink, and somehow it was automatically assumed to bring him another

Overall, it was great. The positive was exceptional service and surroundings. The negative would be that for the price the serving of entrees was small. The sides were full.

Decent lunch, sushi was above average. Service okay, could of used a Diet Coke refill, when my lunch mate got an iced tea refill. Decent patio setup given the circumstances. I’ll try it again...

We enjoyed the dining experience at Shaw's but did note one oddity. We were asked if it was a special occasion and noted that it was our anniversary. Normally that results in some sort of acknowledgement from the restaurant, but that wasn't the case this time. Those little frills usually aren't much and we didn't miss it all that much, but the question is, "Why even ask?"

Another fantastic experience at Shaw's! Food and service were excellent. The heaters on the patio were perfect as the evening cooled off. There is a reason Shaw's Schaumburg is our "go to".

Hadn’t been to Shaw’s in many years so gave it another try. Seafood was average at best and overpriced. The appetizers and salads were better than the actual dinners we ordered. There are so many better seafood restaurants, so don’t waste money eating here!

Food was good but, portions were small. Our waiter was very nice but seemed like she was busy because she didn’t check on us very often. Over all though it was nice, I believe it was the manager who was moving the heaters around to make sure everyone was comfortable!

Good food, met our expectations as we are frequent patrons. This occasion suffered as we had to wait 45 minutes after our reservation time to be seated. We followed up three times before being seated.

The macaroni & cheese did not have enough cheese. It was more like box mac & cheese instead of baked mac & cheese.

First post -COVID visit. As before drinks are top notch and their crab cakes cannot be equaled. I was disappointed in the lobster bisque. Previously it had been full of lobster meat and had a great flavor. This time there wasn't a single piece of lobster, and tasted only of pepper. Budget cutting?
We had the fresh peach and blueberry cobbler for dessert. Catch it before it goes away.
Our server offered to remove the COVID surcharge before we even asked, which was thoughtful.

We loved the outdoor patio. It was our first time out for a nicer dinner since Covid started and our waitstaff was polite, was mask on and kept a safe distance, and was quick despite a very busy patio. The food was delicious and seafood fresh! Loved and missed coming here!
