To our loyal guests,

Changes went into effect Friday, October 30 in the City of Chicago in order to keep our community safe. In an oyster shell, here are the best ways to safely enjoy Shaw’s & support your go-to crab house during this time:

Patio Seating: Our Shaw’s patio, which includes socially distanced tables, heaters, and heated blankets, will continue to be available for seating.  Please note, reservations are now mandatory and tables can be booked for up to 6 guests. Click here to book your table.

Delivery, Carryout & Family Meals: Your favorite seafood dishes can be enjoyed at home by way of curbside pick up, carryout, and delivery. Our family meals are designed to make your dinners at home a delicious and convenient value.  Click here to preorder a family meal.  Click here to order delivery or carryout.

In addition to the above changes, the continued precautions will remain in place to keep our guests and employees safe.  We sincerely appreciate your cooperation and loyalty.

  • Guests are required to wear masks while in the restaurant, only to be removed while seated at your table. Staff will be in masks at all times.
  • All guests will have their temperatures taken prior to entering the restaurant.  Any guest with a temperature over 100.0 Degrees Fahrenheit will not be allowed to dine with us.
  • All guests must confirm they have not traveled to any area on the current travel restriction list within the last 14 days.  You can view the updated list of restricted states here.
  • We are now a cashless establishment. We accept all forms of credit (Mastercard, Visa, Amex, & Discover). We also accept all lettuce entertain you gift cards and reward dollars as other methods of payment.
  • Social distancing between tables

Your continued support and patience during this time are truly appreciated. Please do not

With heaters sprinkled throughout the space and complimentary single use warm blankets upon request, we guarantee a cozy dining experience. We here at Shaw’s have you covered.
