We went to Lancaster for the Art and Music Festival. Our room was the only one that had a balcony that overlooked the square and some of the activities. The food in the restaurant was very good.

We enjoyed the quiet, relaxing atmosphere. There was faint light music in the background. I would have appreciated being seated a little farther apart, there were many empty tables yet everyone was seated in one small area close together. The restaurant was not crowded ( Sunday evening-we did not have a reservation) We were waited on quickly and our food... More

After a disappointing birthday dinner at a different downtown Lancaster restaurant, Shaws proved to be a wonderful place to turn the evening around by celebrating with delicious cake and candles and ice cream. The birthday gal was catered to and celebrated by our spectacular server, EMILIA. Thanks Shaws for making a magical memory for us. The service was extraordinary.

When you stay overnight at the Shaw Hotel breakfast is included. The dining room is very nice and the menu items were a nice range of things. My breakfast of eggs, hash browns, bacon and English muffin was delicious and perfect. The other three people had delicious breakfasts as well. The coffee was strong and good.

We popped in with no reservation on the 4th of July and we are so glad we did! We had the lobster ravioli, and every bite was a slice of heaven. Lots of lobster in it and on top. Corn cream sauce and I don't know what else. It was heaven. We wanted to marry the chef. Great service too,... More

Shaw's is the nicest restaurant in town. It's elegant, upscale and sharp looking. The food is excellent and breakfast is priced just right.

Shaw's is a treasure! A great menu favoring local farms, a wonderful wine list, delicious specials and Blantons on the menu! Our waitress was friendly and attentive. We all enjoyed it so much that we planned for another dinner at Shaws next month. I will also take up one of their cooking classes. This was an unexpected evening we thoroughly... More

Shaws is in a historical hotel in downtown Lancaster Ohio. The chef is creative and innovative offering vegetarian as well as traditional items. Their wine list is excellent.

food is a bit pricey for what you get on your plate. Menu selection was limited due to being prom weekend.

Went for dinner with my wife. The building and decorating are awesome. The service was fantastic and the food was perfect and hot when it arrived. Would highly recommend the strip steak or pork chops.
