The Napa Room

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. The service in the bar area was not good at all. At 10pm on Friday night, there were 5 patrons at the... read more

Recently my wife and I along with her brother and his wife went to Shaw's to celebrate both of our 45th wedding anniversaries. The server was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. She recommended several items on the menu. All 4 meals were very good but the lobster ravioli was wonderful. This was chosen by my wife and my brother-in-law. It was... More

My car got hit in the parking lot. The hotel service told me I could make a police report but they're not going to do anything about it. I was also told it happens all the time. Cars are getting broken into and stolen. Nothing they can or will do about it. If you are going to eat make sure... More

Had a dreadful experience at this restaurant last night. When we arrived we were informed that our reservation had been lost and after much hunting through notes and scraps of paper we were informed that it had probably been written on a piece of paper and lost but that would be able to "fit us in". The restaurant was almost... More

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.
