Shaw's Crab House - Chicago
Soup and entree were over salted. Fish was over cooked.
Food was great as always. It was pretty busy but everything came in a timely manner and was very fresh!
Always enjoy Shaw’s and their deep menu, ambiance and quality experience. Our group consumed shrimp, scallops, lobster, crab and steaks and it was all delicious. I would rate everything at Shaw’s EXCELLENT except the price. Majority of bottles of wine were >$100 and the steak/lobster combo was $90. Very easy to speak >$500 fir a dinner
The music is LOUD and not suited for any meeting. People were almost shouting at each other!
Best crab cake !
Portions are huge. Consider sharing side items. Food, atmosphere, service... all outstanding!
The waitress was fantastic. She checked in when appropriate and did not rush us. It was a Monday night so the place was not packed and we took our time and really relaxed and enjoyed the food and the restaurant. The specials were great choices. Had never had halibut; prepared simply and was delicious. Fun night.
Met with family who were in town for an amazing meal. Lauren took such great care of us and was so attentive to every detail. The Parmesan crusted haddock was awesome. Shaws is one of our favs and never disappoints.
Excellent seafood choices. We started with oysters on the half shell. The selection included East coast and West coast and all had distinctive levels of salinity, plumpness, and sweetness. We're not big eaters, so we split the wedge salad with blue cheese. It was served chilled and wasn't over dressed. For the entree, we split the king crab legs with a side of creamed spinach. Served warm, the crab was succulent and flavorful. We finished with the Homer's peppermint ice cream, a local ice cream parlor.
We were celebrating a wedding anniversary and were treated to a complimentary glass of champagne. The service was friendly and impeccable with the waitstaff checking on us without being intrusive.
Loved the music. The giant alaskan king crab legs were delicious
Excellent service. Thanks Cory!
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary and our first trip to Chicago! We could not have asked for a greater time! Our server was amazing and made great recommendations for us! He paired the wine perfectly and made our experience wonderful! The food was delicious and the seafood fresh! We loved the PEI oysters. We will definitely be back.
Great parmesan crusted haddock. Always a consistent and delicious dinner. Been coming here for 15 years
This is my third time eating at Shaw’s and each time it doesn’t disappoint , Food is excellent and I discovered the buffet on this trip . Best bargain around compared to any restaurant.
I was celebrating my birthday with friends. Party of 11. Food was great and service was outstanding. Ill be back
Soup was very delicious. We went on a Saturday at 7:15pm, had reservations, had to wait to be seated. The service was so slow, we were at the restaurant for a very long time. It was not worth the wait....
Service took 2.5 hours for our party of 5, and we only ordered one entree. Starters were underwhelming, specifically the stone crab claw. Expect one bite. Told server about being there for my wife's birthday and was told they'd do something special, but nothing happened, no acknowledgement. We were expecting great service and food due to most of the reviews being positive, so were very let down. Gibson's from here on out!
The food and service were excellent. They ensure that the food you want, or ordering is with your approval. They explain the menu in detail and ask what you are looking for , so they can meet your expectation. The quality of food is excellent, and I have not had anything that I have asked for not cooked to my desire or the quality of food was of the highest quality. I would recommend that you just give them a try and you will see that they are of the quality you seek, both with food and customer service.
I received fast service but the table next to mine did not. Since we had become fast friends, it did take away from the experience. To their credit, the Manager did come out, apologise and ensured her customers left happy so that was great. The food was sumptious. I had the red snapper which I highly recommend. They also have lots of great dessert - try the peppermint ice cream. I would definitely go back.
just an old school place that has been around because they do a good job - we enjoyed the food and the service - a little pricey compared to other higher end places but the place to go in River North for seafood in a great atmosphere
Ate at the bar. Carlos was amazingly friendly and helpful.
The seafood was delicious and fresh. We had the cold appetizer for two, scallops, hash browns, brussel sprouts, filet and lobster, creme brulee and raspberry pie. The oysters, lobster and sprouts were the stars but everything was outstanding. Our server was attentive but not overbearing, and asked if we'd like her to go over the menu as opposed to doing it automatically.
beautiful tasty cocktails, the sashimi appy was divine, the whole snapper for a main was quite big and could easily be shared
unfortunately our evening was dashed by our utterly rude server, we had to ask to be moved. Quite disappointing.
Great food, great service. We will be back
GreT food and great atmosphere. Service was excellent and the server was exceptional.
The king crab legs were fabulous. The strawberry rhubarb cobbler was AMAZING!!!!!!!!
A must stop in Chicago! Great service. And great food.
I hadn’t been to Shaws in many years, and the food was great.
This was a great discovery. A friend recommended Shaw's and it measured up to my expectations. The food was superb, the staff very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere A+. We will definitely return.
Had the 2 and half pound lobster. It was just okay. Not very sweet tasting. Considering the price, which is about $90, I was disappointed. The French fries were not crisp and had to be sent back.
My favorite restaurant in Chicago and I’ve lived here for 20 years.
The food was excellent! Josh (the bartender) was great! The snapper and tuna tartare were outstanding.
Gave us a complimentary anniversary dessert - what a surprise!
The waitress I had was very good!!!The food was superb!! Can’t wait to go back !!
This is a must attend brunch! Plenty of food and a great variety of food. If you love seafood, you will enjoy the all you can eat king crab legs. Can't wait to go again.
Lackluster. Just not the same experience anymore. It is now kind of fast food over-priced seafood in a faux dining room. My last time.
Food was wonderful, but our waiter Andre really provides top notch service! He was so thoughtful for two birthdays we had. He was never overbearing but was always there before we needed anything. Great guy!
