Had a wonderful meal. Service was great, atmosphere was relaxing and the desserts were fabulous! Don't avoid this when in the city. It is a must eat at restaurant!

Amazing service and food. My husband had the king crab and lobster dinner. Both cooked to perfection. I had the filet with scallops and shrimp. The filet melted in my mouth. The seafood was wonderful. The dessert was also very good. Jimmy was our server and did an amazing job. The cons... 28 steps to the bathroom and 28 back... More

Based on reading all of the other reviews, I feel like we had to be there on an off day for the restaurant. The restaurant atmosphere was nice. The waiter was excellent and very helpful. The food was not great. My husband had the crabcake and liked it. My oldest child and I had the French Fried Shrimp. The shrimp... More

The food, as always, was delicious last weekend. We were in Schaumburg having the car serviced and lunched at Shaw's while waiting. It's been one of our family's favorite restaurants for about the past 15 years. The seafood is always fresh and flavorful and the selection is enormous-there's something for everyone. We do wish that Shaw's would bring back their... More

Great seafood place, where we had Connecticut Blue Point and Wild Cat Cove oysters, a lobster bisque, salmon new style sashimi (with passionfruit, dill, frissee, and olive oil), lobster/avocado/cucumber maki, king crab california maki, and sauteed diver scallops. Lovely bananas foster for dessert!

Shaw's is getting a little too expensive for my pocketbook. Two of us dropped in for lunch. Here's what we had: 1 - Margarita 1 - Lagunitas 1 - Iced Tea 1/2 dozen Oyster Sampler ($18) 1 - Seafood Salad ($22) 1 - Alaskan Sockeye Salmon ($28) Total bill before tip = $98.37 All of the food items were excellent,...

Excellent food and service...knew it was going to be pricey, but also knew the variety and freshness would be outstanding. It was we skipped the more traditional breakfast fare and thoroughly enjoyed the oysters, smoked salmon, shrimp, crab legs king and snow, sushi and all the fresh stuff we can't get in rural northern wi. Dessert table probably had 15... More

My new husband and I came here for the Crab Buffet. I thought the price was $52.00 per person and though I thought that was a lot of money, we decided since we were not able to honeymoon, that we would treat ourselves for a nice dinner. The The hosts are awesome and very nice, quickly taking your empty plates... More

Go for the Happy Hour Oysters! 1/2 price off select oysters, $1.50 each! We arrived a little early for Happy Hour so we started with Oysters Rockefeller, Lobster Bisque, Calamari and soft shell crab for appetizers. The Rockefellers were rich with spinach and light on cheese, a more refreshing profile than usual. The Lobster Bisque was rich and the grandchildren... More

I have been here several times for cocktails and appetizers. The service has always been great. I love the wedge salad. No complaints about any visit.
