Shaw's Crab House, Chicago, IL

Shaw's Crab House Restaurant Review

: On one side of the restaurant, there's a fancy main dining room with white linen tablecloths and dim lighting; on the other, a more relaxed oyster bar with a diner-like feel that's complete with high-seated stools and wooden booths lining the walls. No matter which area you choose, there's plenty of sustainable seafood to go around. From crispy calamari and tuna tartare to salmon, grouper, oysters Rockefeller, scallops and Maine lobster, no ocean fare is overlooked. Saké pairs well with the sushi, and Shaw's specialty, Alaskan king crab legs in drawn butter, is always a favorite. Southern pecan pie with bittersweet ganache and homemade whipped cream completes any meal. Oysters are half-price daily from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m., and live music is performed Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday in the oyster bar. The weekend brunch buffet boasts a litany of temptations, from bananas foster french toast to create-your-own omelets to crab legs to roasted beef tenderloin. Also located at 1900 E. Higgins Rd., Schaumburg, 847-517-2722.
