A great place for quality seafood in the Chicago suburbs. Comfortable place either with family or business lunches. #1 Sunday brunch as well.

When you say brunch, you think the standards but not at Shaw's. You can choose from great sushi, giant shrimp, crab legs, steak filet, crab cakes, lobster macaroni PLUS all the standard omelets, sides and salads. All the food is fresh and FANTASTIC. At $52, it's a little pricey but if you're like me and you don't mind paying extra... More

We had the Sunday Brunch as Shaw's Crab House. We stated with Mimosa's then wandered through the oyster bar area wher you could eat just about anything under the sun whether it was seafood, breakfast items or carvery. The dessert table had everything you could imagine. The quality of the food was excellent. If you like king crab you will... More

It was just as well that we made a reservation for a relatively early 6 PM dinner on a Wednesday as the restaurant filled up fast. Most of the other diners looked like business people. The noise level was pretty high such that I had difficulty hearing what my wife was saying across the table from me so not really... More

We were there on Valentine's Day this year, and felt they really dropped the ball on the "holiday". We have been to many restaurants on this day, from pizza places where they made the pizza in a heart shape, to fancy restaurants where the women all get a red rose and there are Valentine themed items on the menu for...

Nice selection of seafood. Sushi, fish, crab, oysters, and soups. The oysters seemed fresh and were quite tasty. Service was mostly good. Active bar area.

My husband and I love going early for the Oyster Special. We always ask to be seated at the Oyster Bar not in the Restaurant. They feature a few oysters at 50% off. This time we ordered the Peter's Point oysters. Now I'm not a raw oyster kind of girl, but they bring some sort of little icy vinegar condiment... More
