Excellent Sunday Brunch!

We had some reservations about spending $55 per person for brunch. Sometimes we have found that the higher the price doesn't always equate to the higher the quality. But in this case, we were pleasantly surprised. First of all, we had an early reservation. It wasn't what we wanted, but it was... read more

Our family eats at Shaw's a few times a year and has used the upstairs private dining as well. The seafood and sides are consistently excellent. The starters we have had are all very good--lobster bisque and mixed greens, wedge, or Caesar salad. My husband likes the seafood platter--the other dishes we've tried have all been excellent--crab cakes, haddock, tilapia,... More

Brought client and spouses here for dinner. Were initially sat at a table with a very wobbly top; they gladly re-seated us. All of the food was good, hot shellfish platter was really nice. Server was nicely attentive. It was a Friday night so the place filled in quickly and got pretty loud but you kind of expect that for... More

Average dinner at best for a highly recommended restaurant. We were seated right on our reservation time, so no issues. Server was very good, informative and brought cocktails promptly. My wedge salad was excellent, but went downhill from there. The shrimp cocktail for $16 was decent size but somewhat soft, nit plump and firm as expected. Soup was served luke... More

This was my boyfriend and I's 5th time dining at this location and it won't be our last. We spent our New Year's Eve dinner and as always it was amazing.

We came to Shaw's for a business luncheon. Located in a corner of the Woodfield Mall, there certainly is plenty of parking available. We were located in an off-room which meant that the service that we had should not have been contingent on other patrons. The best things that we had were the appetizers which were situated near the door... More
