We had our family Thanksgiving dinner at Shaw's. The King Crab legs were something to be very thankful for this season. There was also beef tenderloin and roasted turkey on the carving table. The horseradish sauce and the cranberry sauce were both exceptional. The side dishes included a crunchy fried shrimp and tasty crab cake along with the usual potato... More

I would not return. I cannot comment on the seafood except to say one companion loved theirs. The recommended entree of roasted vegetables for me was disappointing and I left hungry. The bread was good but overall, I find it's rather pricey. The service was slower than expected. Half of our party were satisfied with their entrees. The other was... More

My hubby and I went to Shaw's for our anniversary. We've heard good things and thought we'd try it. The service was sssslllooooowwww so if you go make sure you have a lot of time. The tables are very close together, we spent 90%of our dinner next to a very loud and obnoxious "ike" (I know everything) and it was... More

The seafood platter was excellent and contained the best scallops I've ever eaten. Fun atmosphere and friendly staff. The menu is a la carts, but the prices are in line for the quality of the food.

I love Shaw's Crab House in Schaumburg by the WoodField mall. The service was good but the food was even butter. I love their summer deals with free maki night and live music from 10:00 to midnight makes going out there a lot of fun. I would go back to Shaw's Crab house for the oyster bar. I can't wait...

This is one of the best restaurants in Schaumburg. I use it for customer meetings when you need great service and great food. The restaurant is classy and the menu is stellar, albeit pricey. I also take family for special events (birthdays, anniversaries, etc). It's also a great place for romantic dates. All of the seafood and steaks are great!... More

My first time at this restaurant - friend raved about the food, and she was right. We went there for lunch on a Sunday. I had fish tacos that were spicy and delicious. Nice ambience, attentive service. A little higher priced than a usual Sunday lunch outing, but worth it.

Fun place on the Oyster Bar side - the other side requires reservations and is more upscale. Great bar specials! 1/2 price bar menu if Chicago Cubs win! Great menu for both appetizers and meals.

We had not been to Shaw's in a few years and felt like seafood for dinner. We made reservations but on a Monday night it was not that busy. Weekends are another story. Our waitress as very personable and when she found out we had visited Hungary, we shared our happy experiences and thoughts on Budapest. We stared out with... More

My wife and I visited Shaw's Crab House in Schaumburg, IL at about 6 PM on a rainy Saturday evening. We didn't have reservations, but were seated within minutes. We ended up in a booth in the bar (maybe because we didn't have reservations) which was a hubbub of activity and a little noisy with the ubiquitous sports channels playing.... More
