Had reservations on Sat night. Was seated right away. Service was excellent as was the food. I recommend using the valet as it was only $5 and finding a parking spot could be difficult.

Food was great, but service and wine was even better. It isn't a cheap or even mediocre place, but worth it in my opinion.

I have been to Shaw's many times and have always been impressed. The service is excellent. The food is always excellent, especially the crab cakes. It is a bit pricey, but well worth it for special occasions.

We made reservations for an anniversary meal seeing that they have a seafood Buffet that included a little of everything we wanted. However when we arrived they seated us and when we ordered informed us that there is a different reservation and dinning room for the buffet and there is no more room in the upstairs buffet area to seat...

I've been to Shaw's a couple of times before my recent visit. The service was okay, I do expect better from a place that charges alot for their food. The workers didnt seem to listen much to requests. Asked to wrap up our leftovers and the leftovers never came back to our seats. So we pretty much left empty handed.... More

Our first venture to Shaw's Crab House was wonderful!! We made a reservation and had studied the menu on line. We signed up for their web site and received a 25 dollar coupon.

Had the 2 pound lobster which was dry except for the claw meat. Waiter was more interested in the next table-regulars? High spenders? Don't know. Au gratin potatoes were excellent. Asparagus was bitter. Couldn't use points because it was past 3pm on Saturday.
