We enjoyed the charm of an old restaurant/hotel. The food was excellent and the service was great. We had bacon wrapped stuffed figs for an appetizer, which were quite a treat.

We love Shaws. Our daughter was going to home coming and wanted a nice place to eat. All the kids had a good time and loved the food. All that was missing was the cinnamon rolls. The waitress said they were renovating the bakery area. Hopefully our next trip it will be finished. My husband and I had a burger... More

Lovely restaurant in downtown Lancaster. Quiet, relaxing setting(no sports bar) to enjoy a wonderful dinner. My husband had the double pork chops. I have never seen porkchops that large and I had the ribs. Both were excellent. Friendly staff, great service. We have eaten here a few times and will return.
