Big and Bustling, Shaw's Crab House stands as a monument to fish and seafood. Besides the usual popular dishes, Shaw's management team is passionate about presenting treats such as Pacific salmon, fresh king crab, and smelt during their short seasons. Reservations made through Open Table will be for Shaw's Main Dining Room. If you would like to dine in the Oyster Bar, all seating is on a first come first serve basis.

"Had to come back again for the soft shelled crab. Friend and I sat in the casual section of restaurant this time. Very lively crowd and quite loud. Unfortunately we left just as the band was starting but their first song was excellent. Made me want to start a New Orleans second line. OK you're wondering about the food. Soft shell crab was tender and seasoned perfectly. Lobster bisque flavor was excellent but carrot strips were too long and constantly fell off of spoon. Friend ordered the jambalaya and liked it but there was so much crammed into the cup that everytime he stirred it, some of the food fell out. Don't decrease the amount of food, but increase the container to make it easier to eat and more visually appealing."

South Water Kitchen, adjacent to Chicago's hip Hotel Monaco, is a neighborhood restaurant offering American Home cooking. As a tribute to the kitchen table, South Water Kitchen remembers the time when the kitchen was the center of the home and the family meal was the most important time of the day.

"Scallops were cooked perfectly. The wild mushroom barley was too dry for my taste. The ceviche salad with frisee was yummy. This is also one of the few restaurants where they serve Kung Fu girl riesling. The only reisling I know that doesn't taste like candy."

"Soft shell crabs are in season and I always come to Shaw's for those. The whitefish was cooked perfectly, tender inside and the crust was excellent. My only problem was with the rhubarb and strawberry cobbler. the strawberries were cooked to mush and the cobbler was cold. It was returned to the kitchen."

Gyu-Kaku Chicago is all about fun and food. You are your own chef, cooking tasty morsels perfectly to your liking, right there at your table. It is an ideal way to share a meal with family and friends. Gyu-Kaku has a variety of original sauces which it uses as marinades and provides for basting of its select meats, poultry, seafood and vegetables. Grilled by the customer over a glowing charcoal brazier, each item becomes a unique and delectable taste experience. Enjoy!

"The Geisha was perfect for 2 people. I think they should have an additional vegetable instead of the first meat that is served. Friend and I had a good time. The tables are spaced far enough apart so you can have a conversation without someone else listening. Service was excellent, we did not have to wait for anything. The Lychee tini is very good."

If you are looking for a unique eating experience, Mixteco Grill is the place for authentic Mexican cuisine. Mole sauce is the essence of this restaurant. The menu is simple – a variety of appetizers, entrees and desserts that are made fresh daily. Chef Raul Arreola, formally a sous chef at Frontera Grill of Chicago, puts his special touch to every dish he prepares.<br /><br />

"Love the empanadas and my steak was perfectly cooked as medium. Never had to wait for water, or to have plates removed for next course. I did order plantains with my meal which were never delivered."
