Business

Our firm has used Shaw’s for our holiday parties the last several years — Shaw’s fits us perfectly. Everyone from management to servers took great care of us, and each of our functions was unique and well-orchestrated. We couldn’t be happier with the service, the creativity, and of course the food!

Shaw’s Crab House has always provided a high-level dining experience for my group events. The Special Events managers are a pleasure to work with and make my job easier with assisting me on setting up functions. They take the time to work with me to determine my specific needs for an event. The food and service are consistently outstanding at this fine establishment. These are the reasons why I continue to return to Shaw’s Crab House.

Having managed 175 events just last year, it’s easy to identify an outlier in entertaining. Nielsen hosted its External Advisory Council dinner at Shaw’s and just as we expected, our guests were very impressed. The venue is perfectly situated, the service is stellar and the food delivers the goal of excellence one could hope to attain. The event management team simplifies the planning and execution seamlessly. I highly recommend hosting any event at Shaw’s.

We really loved the whole experience and cannot thank you enough. Our server was terrific. Food was great as was the room. My son, who graduated from college, was really happy.

I hosted my fiancé’s 40th surprise at Shaw’s because it is our favorite place to dine in the suburbs. The level of patron service by the entire staff is undoubtedly second to none! Even with numerous changes to the activities for the party, the Shaw’s staff worked with me to make everything come together. In the end, the party was a huge success and my fiancé was overjoyed. I highly recommend Shaw’s for not only regular dining but for any event too!

Our wedding reception in Shaw’s Oyster Bar was the best! From start to finish it was first rate and they helped us with every detail, making the planning so easy. The food was incredible, the atmosphere was festive and everyone had a blast. Shaw’s Oyster Bar is a very special and unique venue, and we were thrilled with how our day turned out!

Erin has been working with me on and off for the last 6 month to plan this event. I don’t think that I’m exaggerating too much by saying that I probably had 100 different questions or requests for Erin about this party. She always answered my questions promptly with very specific answers about prices, menu options, food service, liquor, the room setup, flowers, etc… She is patient, very professional, and fun to talk with. To summarize, I feel she has the perfect personality and skill set for her job and she is just excellent at it.

I had the pleasure of finally meeting Erin at the party. Again, she was there to handle any last minute requests or details that I had. The party was a memorable event with a beautiful room and delicious food and drinks. Your waiters and bartender were excellent and answered every special request promptly. A cousin of mine said to me as she was leaving, “Well, I tried to find something that I didn’t like about the party, but I couldn’t do it. Everything was wonderful!” And I have to agree with that comment. I also appreciated that we were able to keep the room as long as we wanted and that we never felt rushed by the staff.

I wouldn’t hesitate to hold another event at Shaw’s…I have already told other people about her excellent service.

A big thanks to Erin Juache and the team at Shaws in Schaumburg for making my event absolutely spectacular!! The Brunch Buffet was so delicious and exceeded my all my expectations. The staff was incredibly professional and took great care of us . I can’t wait to do another event with this team.

From initial planning through the last bite of dessert, the Shaw’s team truly went above and beyond to make our rehearsal dinner special. We could feel the personal touch from everyone. The event managers and service team made us feel genuinely cared for every step of the way.

The Shaw’s team was so flexible and helped us design a custom menu with all of our favorite items, including the Shaw’s classics we wanted to share with all of our family and friends. We also enjoyed a sushi and oyster buffet and decided on a family style dessert course with mini key lime and raspberry pies along with chocolate cake. Both my (now) husband and I would recommend Shaw’s to anyone to begin their special wedding weekend!
