The uwatermelon salad and basil for cake were amazing. The warm cinnamon roll and sourdough bread to kick off the meal were divine. Definitely plan to go back.

We had a nice lunch on the patio on a nice summer day. Wish I could report all great feedback. Love that local ingredients are used. I tried the chilled canteloupe soup, interesting flavor and not too sweet. The risotto corn cakes surprisingly lacked flavor. My sister had the summer salad with chicken and berries. The dressing overwhelmed the salad.... More

This was one of the best meals I have ever had! I love a bed and bed breakfast with a restaurant. The rooms were clean and service was great! Would stay there again without a doubt!

Lovely place for a good family meal or just a place to meet up with friends. Locally owned; the best restaurant in Lancaster.

We enjoyed a lovely light lunch [perfectly prepared fish with watercress garnish and brown rice], small salad [just the right size and priced right too], and a mini dessert, coconut crème brulee, that was four bites -- the perfect ending to a light meal. Love those mini desserts -- wish more restaurants would do that. Service was very good. I... More

Each year during the month of June, Shaw's features different lobster specials for four weeks. My favorite is the half four pount lobster. Of all the lobster I have eaten, this is the best.

When I lived in Lancaster, Shaw's was an outstanding restaurant, a jewel of fine dining in this small industrial town. I've visited several times since I moved away and I've always been very satisfied. As a result, today's less than average performance there came as a real disappointment. First, the service was very bad. It was 20 minutes from the... More

While the fare at Shaw's appears to be dated, it's still not bad. Service is extremely slow, so don't go unless you have nothing else to do that evening.
