Shaw's Crab House

21 E. Hubbard St.
Chicago, IL 60611


Fresh seafood lures diners into this perennially popular Lettuce Entertain You spot, where seating options include a sprawling dining room, a polished lounge, and a convivial oyster bar. Go for the latter, where you can slurp shucked-to-order half shells while listening live blues. Lackluster sushi is best skipped; a better choice is to delve straight into ultrafresh chilled crustaceans, such as signature blue crab fingers. The small but mighty surf and turf with Maine lobster tail is tough to resist, but don’t overlook fish offerings, both ocean and freshwater. Seasonal sides are often sourced locally and worthy of a little stomach space.
