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

Maybe it's just that we sit in the bar and Wendy the bartender is always so attentive but we continue to support Shaw's and they seem to be improving. Service in the main dining room is often poor and condescending. Our solution? Eat in the bar. More relaxed and you get popcorn on your table. Ate there Saturday night and... More

In the past, we've visiting Shaw's for a working lunch, which usually meant a sandwich or burger and fries for me. Always good, always attentive service. But this time, for a late, light-ish Sunday lunch, we opted for something a little more upscale. My wife chose from the small plates section of the menu: calamari with a cabbage-dominated salad on...

On the street parking in downtown Lancaster. Service was a little slow, especially because there was not that many people there. I had a hamburger and my wife had a streak. My hamburger was below average, but would try something different.

Great food reasonably prices and plenty of choices. The weekday special includes a food voucher for each day of your stay. The resturant is known for its steak and seafood. There is a one pound porkchop available which everyone was raving about. However, being not meat eaters we did not try it. Can't beat the salads and desserts.
