Great for special occasions, or just lunch.

Always a great meal here, in a great atmosphere. Service is high quality and friendly. Menu changes seasonly, but manage to always find something great.

We went to Shaw's for Mother's Day. They had a special menu for lunch. My wife and her mom had the spring salad for a starter. I had the dates stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped with bacon. We all thought our starters were excellent. For the mains, they had the filet while I had the Chicken Cordon Blue. The... More

The atmosphere of the restaurant takes you back in time to a high class dining room. The meal begins with warm cinnamon buns and fresh bread, which may be the highlight of the meal. There were four of us in our party and it was the first time for my wife and I. We each had something different and we... More

We dine at Shaw's regularly - but this time the service was so noticeably slow and items were missed from our order. Usually an excellent place, but we took over two hours for dinner. Computer problems - kitchen problems - lots of I'm sorry excuses.

Can't say I'm surprised by the low standards here. Service is slow. The older lady is always so rude to staff as well as customers. I have finally after years of returning here, given up. Gonna spend my money wisely from now on and go where I and my money are appreciated.

we met friends for dinner. The atmosphere was very nice. I love to get away from the chain restaurants. They served sweet rolls when we sat down. Yummy. My wife had the prime and I chose the scallops. Both were well prepared and delicious. I felt the price was fair . We were unhurried and the waitress was attentive.

Our visit this time covered multiple bases...a wine tasting, business dinner, overnight suite retreat plus relaxing breakfast. We live not far from Lancaster, and consider it special enough to have stayed there overnight a couple of times in addition to meeting others for dinners and lunches. Never had anything but a fine meal, and have always heard likewise from family... More
