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, several varieties of just-shucked oysters, and inventive sushi and sashimi combinations, made with the freshest fish in town.
Excellent Chicago vibe. Had nothing that wasn't good here. Ask for recommendations for oysters.
Months later, and I'm still thinking about the sushi.
Oyster shooters are fab and so are the king crab bites! 🦀
Crab bites are a must have
The lobster bisque is amazing.... rich and not too salty!
The servers are trained to really upsell here. Casual questions about ordering more. ordering oyster samplers is a bad idea. You'll get a few good ones/mostly small ones Food's pretty good though.
My favorite Sunday Brunch spot in Chicago! A+ Food and A+ Service and kids eat free !
Oh god the brunch. Go for the brunch.
Old school cool with great seafood.
Everything is good here! I had the surf and surf.
Amazing atmosphere: If you come here, you'll listen to live music with songs from Al Green while tasting delicious seafood. Order the king crab legs; you won't regret it. Scallops are a bit overrated.
Elderflower martini is amazing. Perfectly balanced. Services is very friendly and the food is amazing. Best lobster and crab I've had this year. We will come back here every time we come to Chicago.
Absolutely amazing, tasteful and sophisticated 😊
King Crab Bites.
When the name is engraved in the plate you know they make a good martini.
Waffles, omelette and the lobster bisque was good
Amazing buffalo shrimps
Everything is good. Especially if you're a crab lover! I was surprised to find sushi here!! A very welcome surprise!
Excelente king crabs legs
Chowder was to die for! Oh, and the bread, yummm!
Best Sunday brunch in the city! Something for everyone
Come for brunch and get the chilled crab legs, oysters, spicy tuna maki, bacon, eggs benedict, mini crab cakes, steamed king crab legs, waffles, and a key lime tort... In that order.
Pricy despite the old school atmosphere, but the oysters and crabs were damn good.
The lobster bisque? Yes!! Get it.
Family friendly, delicious brunch every Sunday from 11:30 to 1:30pm!!! So worth it and kids under 12 are free! The warm king crab legs are the best!
very nice fish fishes
I had a dozen oysters and only seven worked.
Dinner here was one of the best dining experiences we've ever had, anywhere. Food, atmosphere and service are phenomenal.
Carlos P. Was our server and was top notch best. Shades is very lucky to have him on their staff. Thank you for making our night great !!!
Love everything I ate. Crab cakes to die for.
Must go to if in Chicago! Haddock was delicious. Staff was great too!
Dont be afraid to wait
Spinach was perfectly prepped!
Best seafood I've ever had and I'm born and raised in New England. Defiantly worth the money
No matter what - leave room for dessert! Make sure you add vanilla bean ice cream to the raspberry pie - makes it taste a lot more special!
The Alaskan King Crab legs are worth a try....
Scallops are bland. The lobster bisque is very good.
Chef's choice sampler on the half shell...
Bloody Mary with shrimp hits the spot...
Really good seafood!!!!
They should make their items order-able from my smart phone by adding them to the app "appay biz". That way, I can order ahead using "appay"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Get the crab!
THE soups are amazing!
