"Blue Crab Lounge at Shaw's..." Blue Crab Lounge at Shaw's Crab House Tip by bopper


Blue Crab Lounge at Shaw's Crab House
The atmophere in the Lounge in very casual and partylike. I recommend sitting at the oyster bar and chatting with the other patrons. The Lounge is open all day and they have take-out. The 3rd week of October they have their annual Royster with the Oyster festival. They have a fancy restaurant adjacent if you want the white linen tablecloth atmosphere. No reservations are taken or required for the Lounge. Prices range from around $5 for a bowl of Lobster Bisque to over $30 for the blue crab. Beverages are standard Chicago price.

See Nightlife below for eval of the Blue Crab Lounge's nightlife.

Favorite Dish: Oyster Happy Hour every weekday from 4:30-6:00 pm: half price raw oysters on the half shell. I also enjoy the soft shell crabs (in season) and you cannot go wrong with the fresh fish choices of the day. They are known for their crab cakes and shellfish. I prefer the fish that swims.
