Shaw’s Crab House

Shaw's Crab House beer

Shaw’s knows the only thing that pairs better than Guinness and a novelty green buckle hat is Guinness and oysters. The Oyster Bar will feature their happy hour pricing all day, and live Irish music will keep the party going from 7 – 10 p.m. If you’d like to go for the full brunch, Shaw’s will offer some festive options in their usual $65 brunch buffet, including Irish soda bread, corned beef, and more.  21 E.
