1st visit to Shaws. Parking required us to park a short walk away in the shared parking lot as spots near the building was full. We ate in the oyster bar area, not the main dining room, sitting at a booth. Seating was prompt at 6PM on a Tuesday. I had a 1/2 dozen oyster sampler to start. Served as... More

We visited for lunch. My husband had the Shaw's Fish & Chips and I had Maryland Style Crab Cakes. Shaw's crab cakes & service are consistently the best!!! My husband said his fish & chips were just ok. Our service was impeccable. Our water glasses were continually refilled. Our waiter provided attentive service while not being overbearing. You must experience... More

It was amazingly busy at 12:15 on a Sunday. The brunch looked incredible, however we were not looking for that much food. It looked so incredibly delicious that I will have to go back and try it.

We visited here because wanted an evening of fine seafood while relaxing in Chicagoland for a long weekend. I had the King Crab legs, which were perfectly done, and my wife had the Club Room Combination, swapping a crab cake for the usual scallops, and she very much enjoyed this as well. Both of us were surprised by the delicious... More

First, a shout out to Tim P. What a wonderful server...he was so nice and friendly, made sure we felt comfortable, not rushed, but was by often enough to make sure we didn't need anything. The food was superb. We tried a sampling of crab cakes, calamari and fried shrimp. For dinner, my husband had the surf & turf (blue... More

I had made reservations for two for New Year's Eve, then another couple were going to join us and Shaw's called to confirm my reservation so I asked if we could up it to four people. The person calling me from Shaw's changed it to four and was extremely polite and nice. Unfortunately, my wife and the other wife both... More

Visited with a friend and I had the seafood platter which consisted of a crab cake (excellent), 3 grilled shrimp (excellent) and 3 small scallops which were nearly cold (not good). I didn't send the food back, but given the $30 price for this item, I expected all the items to be hot. Also had the gumbo as an appetizer... More

This could be the best place for seafood in the entire City of Chicago. You would think that you were on the coast and not in the heart of the U.S. Everything from the lobster bisque to the main dish was toe curling good. The menu is pricey, but the taste backs it up !!! This restaurant was kind enough... More

We had our family Thanksgiving dinner at Shaw's. The King Crab legs were something to be very thankful for this season. There was also beef tenderloin and roasted turkey on the carving table. The horseradish sauce and the cranberry sauce were both exceptional. The side dishes included a crunchy fried shrimp and tasty crab cake along with the usual potato... More
