Shaw's is two restaurants in one – a jazzy, sophisticated, seafood restaurant and a carefree, lively oyster bar. Both serve top-grade fish and shellfish, varieties of oysters, and sushi and sashimi.

They have some really great seafood at this place. The place itself is very nice, as you would expect from a restaurant of this quality. The service was really good too. I had the crab cake for starters. It was very tender and moist. For the main course I had the red king crab legs. They are supposed to be tastier compared to the golden king crab legs. They were really delicious and very delicate. They also have a good and reasonable priced wine list. On a side note, they have a large sashimi selection. I haven't tasted it, but I would expect them to be good. Might be a place for sushi lovers as well...

I really liked this restaurant. The ambiance is nice and very vibrant. The crab cakes were delicious. It was pricy but I thought it was worth it.

The staff here is awesome. As a serious seafood enthusiast their selection of oysters and crab is amazing. The king crab is giant and tasty, bravo.

Of all the places in Chicago to have my anniversary dinner last night I chose Shaw's and I wish I could take back ever stepping foot through that door. By NO means is this a fine dining experience. The food was basic and not in a good way by Any means. The most unimpressive cold appetizer platter I have ever seen. The seafood was so cold it was frozen and the portions were so tiny that I would have been able to look past if it was any good. Even the details looked slapped together like they were doing me a favor in serving them to us. We were asked if this was our first time dining with them and why we have not been here before, they have been around for thirty years... Because honestly pride of any kind left those doors many, many years ago. Overpriced and lackluster to the point of just being sad. The service was atrocious, I was a server myself for many years and have experienced may different types of servers but this was the worst and will always stick out in my mind. He was so pushy on us ordering an entree but when it came to ever having my drink refilled he was no where to be found. After we decided to order our entree (which I really wish we had not) we did not see our server again. Not once did he check in to see how we were enjoying our meal, if it was cooked well or to see that our drinks were once again empty. After finishing our meal we sat for thirty minutes with no one in sight. My boyfriend finally had to get up and find someone to get our check for us. Do you know that it Still took him fifteen minutes to show up with our bill. Sad. If you are willing to spend three hundred dollars on a nice meal for any occasion, do yourself a favor and go ANYWHERE other than Shaw's. The city is filled to the brim with dining options and this is one that I would never return to again.

It was a nice restaurant. They have a decent selection of seafood and the waitstaff was helpful in selecting both food and drinks to go with the food. It didn't feel all that special, however, and though good, it seems to be more of a tourist draw than anything else.

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.

Loved this place. Came in from Calgary Canada for the weekend, randomly found this place on a Wednesday night and it didn't disappoint. Oyster bar had tons of personality, great knowledgeable service staff, impressive oyster selection, live music, flexibility to grab menu items from the dining room, and so on - generally ensuring we had a memorable night. Nate the manager(?) came over and chatted as well, got impression people cared about the product. Try it out.
