Go for the Oysters!

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... read more

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

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.

Shaw's has a higher price point, but it is a seafood restaurant, so somewhat to be expected. Hosted a business lunch here and the food was really good. It is kind of loud in the main dining room, but overall a nice place for a lunch. Had a lobster salad type sandwich and it was really good.

A feat seafood rest. In the NW suburbs, wether for lunch or dinner. the king crabs legs are a must have, never really had a bad meal here. Servers tend to be excellent and know the menu well. Part of the Lettuce Entertain You group, their quality is very good across the board.

Friends from Wisconsin drove down and wanted sea food. This place was close so we decided to try it. It was crowded and that is usually a good indication as to quality. Actually is was ok but not much more than that.

Service was prompt and efficient but food was just average. I had the crab cakes which were okay but not remarkable. Not sure that I would go running back?

The restaurant has a 1920s 30s feel to it. A little pricey but the quality is pretty good ................................................

By now, we should realize that Lettuce Entertainment Restaurants are some of the best, and this Shaw's is an example of quality, quantity and service. The food is fresh, well prepared and very tasty and certainly enough for a good meal. Service is friendly and attentive. It was a thoroughly enjoyable dinner.
