    Chicago's Best

    I get to Chicago 3-4 times per year and Shaws Blue Crab Lounge is a must visit each time. Staff is incredible and I have never had anything but the best seafood. My wife and I usually stop by around 4:30 for a cocktail and some sushi and then return later in the evening for something heavier.

    Consistently good

    Visiting Chicago again after two years, we returned to Shaw's three days in a row for lunch. We returned to the Oyster Bar for its casual atmosphere. It was just as good as our previous visits. Over the three days, we had the king crab bites, the oysters rockefeller, and the lobster bisque for appetizers. We also had the crab cakes and the chopped seafood salad. I cannot recommend the crab cakes enough if you favor Maryland-style crabcakes. Although not as good as the lump crabcakes made by the Franklinville Inn in New Jersey, they are the best in their class and I always judge a good restaurant by its crabcakes. The service here is attentive and friendly--water glasses are kept filled and waiters are knowledgeable and friendly. We also discovered a new beer that was on tap--Goose Island Sophie--a bit pricey, but a nice vacation treat. We are loyal to restaurants we like, so we will return when we come back to Chicago.

    Best Seafood in Chicago

    My wife and I dined at Shaw’s Crab House on Sat night, and it was fantastic. We have eaten at a lot of restaurants, and can honestly say that Shaw’s still has it going on, and is top of our list for consistent, quality seafood and shellfish. The food is always prepared right, with great service, and the dining room is comfortable, where you can relax and enjoy your meal. Here was our dinner/all worthy selections: Start with their hand-shucked dozen assortment of oysters (Chicago Magazine just voted “the best” oysters), then their famous jumbo lump crabmeat crabcake (North Shore magazine voted “best crabcake”), then their wonderful Lobster Bisque soup, then split an order of their steamed Alaskan King Crab legs with side of melted butter, then try the in-season special, three delicious soft shell crabs sautéed in lemon, garlic butter, with great veggie sides, and end it all with Key Lime Pie and Homers Peppermint Ice Cream with Hot Fudge sauce. Hot Intelligentsia coffee drinks and specialty tea capped it all off, and we were very happy overall. Shaw’s has the seafood dining experience down to a perfect science. Highly recommend!

    Eat here!

    We first visited Shaw's last year and ate in the formal dining roomit felt a bit stuffy, by the service and food were superb! This year we couldn't wait to return for another delicious meal, but we felt we weren't dressed properly (having taken a break from Lollapalooza), We went anyway and discovered the fabulous Oyster Bar with the same great food and service in a relaxed, fun atmosphere. I can't recommend the crab cakes highly enoughsauteed, creamy, delicious Maryland style. The food and the place remind me of the places my dad took me to in the 60'splaces like Captain Starns and Dock's Oyster House in Atantic City. We went back two days later and enjoyed our meal just as much. They have good beer on tap toolove that Anchor Steam! Can't wait to go back to Chi-town and this place! The servers are super-friendly and helpful also.

    Everything was great. There is a causal and formal choice of setting. The sushi, gumbo, king crab, and fish were all EXCELLENT. We will eat at Shaw's everytime we go to Chicago (once or twice a year).
