Owner Susie Cork Krutsch has closed Shaw's Restaurant for updating and renovation. A bakery will be added in the current bar area. The new bar will face the square. Targeted reopening is early summer so the great traditions will return to downtown Lancaster. The Hotel has closed permanently and those plans have not been announced.

Beautiful atmoshere with fine dining....the macaroni and cheese was bland, needed more seasoning and we were dissappointed with the size of servings. The men were still hungry and I feel that with a 20 some dollar meal you should at least have a salad or side included.....those that had one were a very small portion. Thank goodness for the bread... More

Breakfast the next morning was included in our stay and it was excellent! Their dining room is beautiful and the food was very good. Highly recommend the restaurant and sorry to hear that... More

My husband likes the ribs so he is happy they are still on the menu . We usually eat in the bar which is very quaint! The wine list seems very pricey and we... More

We enjoyed the charm of an old restaurant/hotel. The food was excellent and the service was great. We had bacon wrapped stuffed figs for an appetizer, which were quite a treat.

Things have changed at Shaws. I was there last Saturday and it was nearly vacant. Where is the old Shaws. Menu has changed greatly.
