I would love to give a review on the food, however we never had a chance and this is why. I made a reservation 2 weeks in advance for my girlfriends birthday. We drove 3 hrs to experience Shaw's. When we arrived, they had record of our reservation, told my girlfriend Happy Birthday, gave us a buzzer and we headed to the bar. We waited 50 minutes for the buzzer to go off. I went to the hostess station to politely asked when we would be seated. She checked the buzzer, and told me that we were never entered into the system as checked in. She then said we would be seated as soon as possible. We waited 20 more minutes and left. We went to Gibson's, and had a great time, as well as treated with respect. Please respect your customers and make sure you at least look like you know what you are doing.

Sunday brunch was the best ever! Service was impeccable. I am not a fan of buffets but this was all you can eat king crab legs, shrimp, oysters and sushi! Hot and cold bars with the regular omelet waffle section. And the dessert table had cotton candy enough said. This will be a stop every time I visit Chicago.

We were seated quickly after our reserved time. The cold appetizer was pretty good. The king crab was excellent. I was very happy with the service. Would definitely recommend.

We come from Philadelphia to experience Shaw's. My husband and I are Oyster addicts and love to sit in the Oyster bar closest to where the delicate operation of opening and plating the gems. The best deal is getting to the bar for HH special and select the East Coast v West Coast selections. But anytime is a good time to sample the selections. Actually, we dicker over the regions - me loving the East coast varieties and my husband savoring the West coast. The saltier the better followed by plump sweeties all dipped in Champaign Vinegar nectar! Highly recommend!

Absolutely great!! We went there for Mother's Day and the food was so nice that it was worth the upscale price we paid. I knew this restaurant was special because I dislike lemon merengue pie, but their's is sooooo good.

Dined at the Oyster Bar and was blown away. Service, food, heck everything was top notch. I will definitely be returning the next time I am Chicago.

Shaw's is the place in the city for Oysters! They take their oysters very seriously. I dined here recently and experienced by first raw oyster. My husband loves oysters and has been eating them for years but I could never bring myself to try one until we came to Shaw's for an oyster tasting event. We really learned all there is to learn about oysters. The regions in which they come, how they are shucked, and the difference between east coast and west coast oysters among many other things. We tasted the raw oysters and then other varieties such as oysters Rockefeller. Shaw's has wines and beers to accompany your oysters for the best tasting experience. I highly recommend visiting Shaw's for their oysters but if oysters aren't your thing their menu also provides a vary of fare from land and sea. After our tasting I had the petite filet mignon which as cooked to a perfect medium. Just the way I like it. I also would recommend their chocolate layer cake or raspberry pie for dessert. This place earns 5 stars in my book!
