Shaw's Crab House - Chicago
The king crab was fabulous.
Requested our special booth but was asked to sit at another booth. We watched the couple tip the maitre d when they were seated.
The table behind us had 4 very loud and not well behaved children not very relaxing for a nice dinner out.
Always perfection! Birthday/Family/Holiday celebration!
Was finally seated 30 minutes past confirmed reservation time.
Best seafood ever👞.
Also cocktails amazing.
Always order the crac you won’t be disappointed.
Good wine selection also.
Loved our waiter. Loved the food. Back in June
Our meals were cold. We were promised to get new meals, however, the old ones were served again, and again cold. In the third run we finally got moderatedly warm meals. The Service was great and we got one bottle of an excellent red wineas compensation. Great! Meinrad
Always a reliably fantastic meal at Shaw's. We never visit Chicago without a visit.
We requested a booth in our reservation made months ago and was not accommodated
It was great as always!!
The best seafood house in Chicago, bar none! Excellent service and they only serve food that is in season.
Haven’t been back in years but still an incredible dining experience - keep up the great work!!
The selections were fresh and great tasting. Eduardo was our server and didn't miss a beat when it came to removing our plates or replenishing our drinks...
Don't miss this brunch. By far best brunch in Chicago.
The food here is amazing. We got the Spicy shrimp, salmon, & lemon sushi as suggested by our waiter. I was skeptical of the flavor combination with the lemon, but it was fantastic! I would get it again in a heartbeat. The lobster, scallops, shrimp, and crab cakes were all very tasty as well. If we go visit Chicago again in the future, I would definitely plan to go back to Shaw’s.
Terrific time once again at Shaw’s. Exceptional service and food keeps me coming back every time I’m in Chicago. A must see.
In town for the holiday, had a fantastic time at Shaw’s! Great drinks and service at the bar. Lovely dinner and very good service in the dining room. We hit Shaw’s almost every trip to Chicago.
Always great! Delicious, fresh, carefully prepared food and excellent service. I've been coming here since 1986 and still wonderful.
We had a great experience at Shaw’s. The food and service were exceptional! Will plan on visiting again when in Chicago!
Must do something different with the waiting area and where people go back and forth to get food. Maybe move the coat rack room and give people a path to walk back and forth. Other than that the service and food including the oysters and raw bar is one of the best I've had. Thank you for making another great year for our family Thanks Giving.
Best Thanksgiving day spread ever! This is a new start of a Thanksgiving tradition for our "non-Turkey" family!
Wonderful way to spend a special holiday!
Excellent mix of food. Waiter bad manner when paid the bill.
I went on Thanksgiving for the $85 buffet. It was a terrible experience; the food that shouldn’t be cold was cold, rubbery sushi, flavorless sides. It was so crowded that people were in mobs in the waiting area which was where you had to walk through to get to all of the food stations and then back to your seat. I wouldn’t go back.
We went for Thanksgiving. We have done this a number of times and it was fine but wildly crowded. The food this year was not quite as good as in past years. The oysters were tiny and there are usually two types but that night there was only one. The crab legs were dried up probably as a result of sitting too long. Even butter could not save them. Crab cakes were burned and dry. However, the creamed spinach and the squash puree were wonderful as was the tenderloin. Our server was excellent.
The thanksgiving buffet here can’t be beat. Great food, no fuss. Highly recommend. Get reservations early.
Excellent service despite the huge Thanksgiving Day crowd. Was pleased that the front desk, waiter, and food service manager all acknowledged the dietary needs of one guest and took the initiative to approach her immediately. No prompting, no reminding, no attitude—just a gracious, sincere desire to help. Waitstaff attentive and warm even though it was a noisy, seemingly chaotic environment. It’s a credit to the operation that despite the crowds at the buffet stations, the process actually wasn’t chaotic at all but was highly organized, and getting food was fast and easy. Our waiters never abandoned us and acted unhurried as they offered to bring us items. Quite a team performance!
This was our 6th time to the Thanksgiving buffet. It delivered as expected. Amazing food, always replenished. Crab legs 😍😍😍 Our server, Frankie, was the best!
It was an awesome Thanksgiving brunch!! There was not one item that was not fantastic! Loved the carving stations with herb roasted turkey and beef tenderloin! Seafood was incredible and every side dish was amazing. Desserts were okay, but everything else was so tremendous and we were so full by that time that it didn’t really matter.
