We stopped at Shaw for a light lunch to escape the cold. The food was okay, but the place really lacked authenticity and was overpriced for the quality. On a positive note, our server was excellent!

We enjoyed a casual lunch at Shaw. We had the turkey club and house burger. Both were well cooked and presented. The service was good and would come by again for an enjoyable casual dining experience.

The environment was quite busy and the food was reasonable. Not a high-end restaurant, but no pretense about that.
