Came in as part of a large group and had GREAT service! Everyone that waited on us was polite, accommodating and took time to ensure we were well-taken care of! The appetizers weren't too impressive - their "mini burger" was a sad, dried piece of hamburger on top of what has the texture of a dried bun heel - not... More

For $59 the Saturday night buffet is very good. There is not a huge selection, but it's still decent. They have several kinds of oysters, shrimp, crab cakes, sushi and two different type of crab (hot king and cold crab). There is also a great dessert section. The service at Shaw's is always good. I also recommend having the Sunday... More

I was here with a few co-workers after a conference and we all had seafood. The beer and wine selection here was not great, first of all. Everyone's seafood (trout, salmon & tuna) was very mediocre for the price. Service was not amazing either. If you're looking for some good seafood, I would recommend somewhere else.

I had a business lunch here. The service was very good and the food was delicious. They change their menu daily and all the choices made by those at our table were very good. After our main food we had mini desserts, which are $2 and perfect to finish off the meal. They offer a Sunday brunch that is $52... More

Crab cake appetizer, bread basket, cocktails, scallop special, swordfish, surf and turf, bananas foster, pumpkin pie, and cappuccino. What is not to like? The wait staff was attentive but allowed us time to sit, converse, and then order. Great atmosphere and entree options.

My wife and I had invited two other couples for a Saturday Grand Buffet. One of the younger couple had a infant baby with them. Normally this would be a difficult adjustment especially for any restaurant with cramped space......but not for the hostess Meghan. Without any hesitation, she invited us to use their private dining room so that the baby... More

We arrived around noon on a weekday and had the most wonderful meal. We like to get a taste of lots of things so we had several appetizers--oysters, clams, crab claws, crab cakes and assorted desserts and all were excellent. The wait staff were in on our request for the assortment and were very accommodating. It is an elegant place... More

I am a Seafood Lover, but you didn't get much for the money at this place. The dinner was tasty but there wasn't much. The service was incredible and First Timer's get a free desert.
